DevaChan: The Best Curly Hair-apy Money can Buy
Cursed with Curls, we Revisit a Reason to Love Them
A self-proclaimed former straightening addict, I felt I had tried every product on the market and visited stylist after stylist who said that their specialty was curly hair to no avail.
All of my life, women have told me that they’d trade their straight tresses for my curls if only they could. To them I have always invariably replied, “Imagine waking up every single day with a do that looks like Bob Dylan.” End of discussion. Curly hair is no walk in the park, especially on <... >
East Side Exclusivity at Paul Labrecque’s CORE Salon:
A Blunder of Words Takes a Turn for the Better after Second Visit
By Kelly Hushin
A social club often conjures images of rolling golf greens, polo shirts and tied-up sweater shawls, pearls and outdoor verandas. They are the ultimate venues for adult parties where status and fashion sense can be flaunted equally if one so desires. Of course, entry into such venues is not always through an open door and <... >
New York is supposed to be the city the never sleeps, yet you’ll find few high end salons open late when it’s most convenient for you (or for late-night hair emergencies). The Red Market salon is an exception, and combines excellence and artfulness with sheer convenience. Located across from the Gansevoort Hotel in the meatpacking <... >
Ah, my torrid NYC history of stylist-hopping. It’s scandalous, really. Ever since my move to the city ushered a disastrous split between me and my upstate hair stylist.
The East Village is full of great restaurants, bars and boutiques, but a cute hair salon in the uber-trendy hood is hard to come by.
For a long time guys lived by the motto “A little dab’ll do’ya” when it came to hair care. They didn’t put too much thought into what brands they were buying.
Ric Pipino brought his Miami style to Nolita in May and since then word has been spreading about the ex-hubby to Heidi Klum.

This Season’s Best Hair Treatments to Get you Romance-Ready

If Tim Burton were to have a run-in with Coco Chanel, and the two were to serendipitously collaborate on designing the interior of their dream hair salon – the end result would be something of a glamorous nightmare; the kind of place only the Lady Gaga’s of our world could imagine. Pepper Pastor, a known <... >
As soon as the weather turns cold, I immediately find myself dreaming of a new hair style. Cut, color…sure there are endless possibilities and places to go in NYC, but where can you go for a unique experience and a real transformation? Somewhere that not everyone knows about, but with enough people who do that <... >
For some women, one of life’s greatest pleasures is finding the perfect matching bra and underwear set. Other gals love the look of a simple sweater tee and matching cardigan. And of course there’s the simplistic elegance of an exquisitely fitting pants suit. I have never been a girl to care about such things. Matching <... >
With the winter months creeping in – leaves tumbling and sweaters bulking – I was hankering for a new ‘do, something that would sizzle during the doldrums of December. Throughout my 26-year-old life I’ve sported just about everything from circa ’95 Natalie Imbruglia-inspired locks and hussy-esque red, to Manic Panic in Atomic Turquoise and some <... >
The commercials are typical: beautiful woman stands in shower, looking fondly into the pouring water that is enveloping her as she gracefully lathers away a massive crown of foam through her long and lustrous locks. She is relishing the experience, as it’s oh-so-cleansing, deliciously scented and altogether beneficial for her troubled hair. Too bad she’s <... >
One of hair care’s most ubiquitous ingredients is something we think of as the key component to our favorite cocktail or the smelly solution we douse on an infected piercing. Hair companies do not laud alcohol nor do they display it proudly on the front of their product bottles. But that doesn’t mean it’s not <... >
Fifth Avenue in Gramercy may be known for great shopping, but amid the boutiques lays luxury salon and spa Butterfly Studio. It’s the brainchild of founder Kattia Solano, who wanted a salon where clients could get a total experience for the mind, body and soul. Kattia has been in the industry for more than 15 <... >

NYC Stylists Backstage Talk Hair Trends for 2010

Everyone who lives in or around New York knows that the September Fashion Week is the best (and only) week-long holiday of the year. Sadly, few employers have recognized it as such, and most of us are stuck at a desk for the majority of the week, furiously checking WWD to see what styles we <... >
