After a very successful run as a temporary pop-up this year, Madison Reed’s New York City Color Bar opened its permanent address on 11 W.18th street in Manhattan’s Flatiron District last month. A favorite for busy New Yorkers, the salon offers convenient, quick and healthy hair options that take the drama out of long hair color sessions at traditional salons.
The beautiful new location is airy and contemporary, allowing easy movement across its different stations in an oasis-like environment. Come in to relax, grab a cup of tea and enjoy top hair services with non- toxic products, at the most reasonable prices in the city.
Based in San Francisco, Madison Reed is the first Smart 6-free hair color (no ammonia, resorcinol, parabens, phthalates, gluten, or PPD) the nasty, irritating chemicals typically found in hair color that over time can affect your health. Crafted in Italy, it also boasts a cruelty-free Leaping Bunny certification.The entire line of color is enriched with argan oil, keratin, and ginseng root – and if you suffer from a sensitive nose, know that the formula is odorless and non-irritating.
Several easy options are available:
– Root Reboot, a 2-week fix for gray roots, $35.
– Buh-Bye Roots, a permanent, single-process long-lasting color, $60.
– Gloss: Boost shine & refresh faded tones between coloring, $35.
– Roots & Gloss: Permanent color for roots + refresh color + boost shine, $ 85.
– Blow Out: $35 ( with any color service).
Leave the salon with fresh, natural looking, gorgeous long-lasting color. Make it even more of a breeze and register your formula with your colorist after your first appointment so that it can be accessed to serve you next time you visit.
Before you walk out with your glossing tresses, pick a Root Touch-Up Makeup. The best brush-on powder I have ever tried, it is made from safe ingredients including micro-milled pigments that give hair dynamic natural-looking depth and incredible coverage. It works on all hair types and shades, from rich caviar black to opulent platinum blonde. Once you try it, you will find it is as essential in your beauty pouch as mascara or lip gloss.
