Macy's flagship store at Herald Square features One Below — part of a $400 million project to renovate the store.
Upon entering the newly renovated basement of the store, I was greeted by a platinum-haired Miley Cyrus and the sound of electronic music blasting through the speakers.
The first station I came to was the Benefit Brow Bar for shaping and coloring eyebrows.
Department stores are notorious for their makeup counters, but One Below will offer a blowdry bar as well. Hair is just as important as makeup.
The floor carried a variety of brands for juniors such as BCBGeneration, XOXO, Jessica Simpson, American Rag, and Calvin Klein. The selection of clothes were in line with current fashion — brown leather, fur and high-waisted pants. Although there wasn't anybody on the floor to help me.
The decoration of One Below is filled with bright colors, sparkles, chic mannequins, and a ton of mirrors.
Macy's has a section of the store dedicated to Homecoming. It includes a variety of long and short dresses — mostly covered in sequins.
There's an immense purse and backpack selection. Designers such as Vera Bradley, Kipling and Calvin Klein offer bags in all shapes and sizes for business, school, and going out.
Next came the section dedicated to leggings. It seemed like an endless variety of styles, colors, and patterns to choose from.
And with leggings comes UGGs. Lots and lots of UGGs. But there is also a decent shoe selection with heels, ankle, and knee-high boots.
I then visited Clinique's makeup and skin care area of One Below. Here a cosmetologist gave me a test that told me my skin type and recommended which product would best cleanse my skin. She also helped me choose which colors would go well with my skin tone and created a sketch before application. MAC is the other cosmetics counter on the floor.
This is the charging station — complete with a selfie wall. Take a shopping break, plug in your phone and upload your most glamorous selfie with the hashtag #macyslove to make the wall. The wall is touchscreen and allows for customers to take a selfie with a popular New York City destination, because FOMO.
Finally, I came to the men's section of One Below. It heavily featured men's undergarments, with brands such as: Ralph Lauren, Emporio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Jockey, Under Armour, and Michael Kors. It also includes a section for sunglasses, briefcases, wallets, backpacks, and belts.
Macy's just spent millions to build a 'millennial floor' - here's what it's like to shop there
