Red Market Miami Q&A with Top Stylist, Jessica

The Best Miami Hair Salon has a chat with Renaissance Woman, Jessica Keglovich, known for her couture styles, gorgeous make-up artistry and overall commitment to making people not only look great, but feel incredible too:bes-hair-stylist-in-miami

How did you get started in hair?

Growing up I went to the hair salon with my grandmother every Saturday.  The ladies in the salon would do her hair, French braid mine and then her and I would go shopping.  I just remember I loved being in that environment.  So much so, that even though the salon had a little play area for the children who came in, the thing I remember most was never wanting to be in that room! My desires were to see what the stylists were doing behind the doors of the backroom, experiment with their tools and read every product’s label so I could gain all of the knowledge of what they did.  I needed to know all about it!  Through that time, my passion and interest only grew.  By fifteen, after much persuasion to one of my best friend’s aunt who was a manager and hairstylist of a salon, finally allowed the two of us to work at her salon for a few hours on Saturdays.  We started off small- basically just cleaning and sweeping hair. Which at the time, was the best thing ever! Then, eventually we got to wash hair, set styles and everything else an assistant would typically help with. An extra set of hands in a salon never go un-used for long! During that time, a top colorist from Izzazu asked me to come and assist him after seeing me work at the other salon.  I started working for him, went to beauty school during high school and continued to work for that salon for twelve years where I perfected my skills. I had amazing mentors there.

 

How did you get started in make-up?

Hair and Make-up by Jessica

Hair and Make-up by Jessica

Well, I was always interested in make-up, but I started doing it professionally about nine years ago.  I worked at a huge salon with a large staff so typically estheticians took the reigns of makeup. On occasion when a make-up artist wasn’t available, I would often step in.  At about that point, I began doing make-up and styling for a local agency, which in turn, introduced me to the print world of fashion. Soon after, I was recommended to a really well known photographer who was looking for someone to do make-up and styling for his up coming shoot.  The photographer and I ended up hitting it off really well. His team and I worked really well together and we shared the same philosophy for our arts, as well as the experience we try to offer our clients.  Because of this, he began hiring me for his other productions which has really launched my career in the make-up artistry and production styling aspect. This new path has led me to be fortunate enough to travel abroad, of which I now typically do at least every few weeks.

 

What inspires you as an artist?

I honestly get inspired by really random things; people on the streets in the different cities I visit for work, paintings in art galleries, Andy Warhol for one, (who is a fellow Pittsburgh-er),  and even the lifestyles of my clients. Anything and everything creative!

 

What kind of work do you do for special events? 

As far as the special event styling and makeup, I work with a lot of high-end event planners, including a lot of work with bridal parties and red carpet events.  Often times I’m styling in a new city for a person I’ve never met before, so I truly believe in getting to know the client, talking; bouncing ideas back and forth and customizing a look based on the individual. Whether it be a wedding, a bar/bat mitzvah or any other milestone moment, I always listen and consider the client’s preferences first. I draw inspiration on who they are as individuals- I look at what they are wearing for the event, where the event is, etc. Then, together we create their whole look with hair, make-up and even their wardrobe-down to their jewelry to complete the occasion.

In your opinion, what sets Miami apart from other cities?

I think what makes Miami unique is that there are so many influences from different backgrounds here.  People from all over the world come to Red Market Miami seeking a “Miami vibe style.”  So what we do as hair stylists certainly influences the world in that vibe, but we, in turn, are influenced by our customers as well. It’s so interesting to me to know that I have repeat clients from Brazil, Russia, Costa Rica, and other places. So what that says, is that our work is regularly walking the streets of all those cities. Whether it be in their local grocery stores buying groceries and going to work every day. Its cool to have an outreach like that. Our salon certainly has a lot of international influence- we don’t have just one kind of style or client. It all sort of melts together!

 

What is your definition of beauty?

Well first, I think real beauty starts from within and who you are as a whole.  Whatever makes you feel incredible shines through from your soul and is reflected through your eyes.  When you feel like you look incredible, you feel incredible and you have confidence.  Beauty should be individual and inspired by you!

 

What are some of the things you like to do outside of the salon?

Outside of the salon, I love to spend time with my family, which is why I moved here. I also love to paint and cook.  One of my favorite things to do on my own is turn on some music, set up my easel, open a bottle of wine and paint.  When cooking, which I do often, especially with my family every Sunday, I always prefer a from-scratch or homemade recipe.  Homemade meals and tradition are important to me. Whether it be in hairstyling or life,  your foundation is key. You can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been!

 

If you could wake up anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I suppose if I wanted to disappear for a few days to do some mediation or chill out, I would definitely choose Princeville, Hawaii.  However, when it comes to day-to-day life,  I am totally happiest where I am right now- embarking on the Miami market.  I’m blessed to have done so much traveling and experiencing so much throughout my career. I absolutely love it and couldn’t do without where the production life takes me, but being in the salon all day and working with my clients is where my passion began… and it still lies there.

What is your favorite thing about being a stylist?

I’ve been styling hair for 14 years now and while I absolutely have a passion for the technical aspect of styling, my favorite thing by far is making people feel good on the inside through what I can do as an artist on the outside.

Red Market Hair Salon New York: An Exclusive Interview with David Cotteblanche

David Cotteblanche

David Cotteblanche

David Cotteblanche, co-owner of Red Market New York, takes a few minutes out of his day to answer a few interview questions.

Interviewer: What is the story behind the name Red Market?
David Cotteblanche:We first opened up in the meatpacking district, and it was kind of a variety of life in the nighttime. We were one of the first late-night salons in NYC. The previous space from the meatpacking district was all about nighttime and the color red, and that helped with the ambiance we created here.

Interviewer: How old were you when you first decided you wanted to be a hair stylist?
David Cotteblanche: I was sixteen, living in Paris. I loved the opportunity and I made it my life. My parents were very supportive of that. I first wanted to become a chef, but I changed after I was working very late and long days. I wanted to interact with people, and I wanted to be creative too, which you could do as a chef. But I wanted to be creative with women; I always wanted to express myself with creativity. So I went into the hair business. The point is to make people happy.

Interviewer: What are three words you or your friends would use to describe your personality?
David Cotteblanche: Happy, fun, and creative, of course!

Interviewer: Who was your first client? And what did you do for them?
David Cotteblanche: My brother and my father. I cut short haircuts for them and then after I would cut my mother’s hair. I also had some Gypsy friends, and I would go to their camp and practice on all of them. It was a good experience, I learned early that way.

Interviewer: If you could style any celebrity’s hair today, who would it be and why?
David Cotteblanche: Marion Cotillard. She is very versatile…she is doing the Dior campaign. Every time you look at her from red carpet to a campaign to a photo shoot, she’s changing so much.

Styling for a photoshoot

Interviewer: What is your typical thought process when styling someone for a red carpet event?
David Cotteblanche: Getting to know the person, and what she’s going to wear –as is if someone is going to a wedding. I love doing wedding and photo shoots, I love to be in the salon but also outside too. Outside you can bring the creativity from the salon. This weekend I did a few weddings on Friday and Saturday. It was beautiful.

Interviewer: What was it like contributing to the New York Post segment on chic older women in New York?
David Cotteblanche: One of my clients was profiled by this author who wanted to write about older women in New York and their fashion. I love this type of client. But we look for everyone, not just this type of woman or that type of client, we look for anyone who wants to enjoy the experience and we give that to them. They share back their experience with us, and that’s part of New York too — people whose character bring a vibe to it all.

Interviewer: What was it like working for Jacques Dessange in the 90s?
David Cotteblanche: Jacques is a businessman, with 500 franchises around the world. The experience with traveling with his company was very good. We went through training and we got knowledge and life experience. But since the 90s the hair industry has changed a bit, and now you see more people want to return to a boutique salon.

Interviewer: What was it like working for Frederic Fekkai, and how old were you when you worked for him?
David Cotteblanche: I was about 27. That was a good experience too. It was even more corporate. I learned a lot about American corporations — what to do, what not to do. And I think learning to be more corporate was a good thing for my business. It was the best experience of my life.

Interviewer: What are some new hairstyle and color trends for the season?
David Cotteblanche: Hairstyles are going shorter — like a bob just a touch above the shoulder. Or more of an extreme look like the singer Pink has, that is shorter on the sides — sort of like the 80s look. Color for the fall is all like blends, or pastels. Another trend is wigs. In many of the magazines like Vogue, the models are wearing wigs. Wigs are very sexy, and they can be versatile. I think people want to be able to change their look. We see that more and more.

Interviewer:Describe your signature hairstyle.
David Cotteblanche: My hairstyle would be based on the quality of the hair. I do a haircut for my client that is unique to her, what her style is, because it makes her happy. I want a total look, to make custom made haircut for you, based on your style, your clothes, your look. So it depends on the person. So everything flows together — your clothes move, your hair moves, it’s all together.

Interviewer: What makes you intensely happy about the world of hair and beauty? How do you define beauty?
David Cotteblanche: To see my clients with a beautiful smile makes me happy. Beauty is inside. It comes from your heart. When you are happy inside and you feel good about yourself inside you will automatically present yourself outside like that. Happiness is when you put your mind in a state of positive thinking.

Interviewer: Being French and living in American culture, how does that affect your perception of things and life?
David Cotteblanche: In a big way because America is now my home, but it’s like my second home. There is so much culture here. And my wife is from Boston, but she was born in the Philippines. So there is a mix of culture in my life.

Interviewer: Describe your morning routine, how do you get ready for the day?
David Cotteblanche: I get up and I work out. I do one hour of running or yoga. After that, I spend time with my son before I go to work.

Interviewer: What is it like being a father in this business, and what hopes do you have for your son?
David Cotteblanche: Being in this business is very exciting. I begin my work day a little bit later so I can enjoy the morning with Max, which is a great thing. I wanted to share the experience with the fashion world and the beauty world and expose him to that. I bring him on photo shoots and such. It’s fantastic for him at his age. It’s the best experience.

Interviewer: If you could go back in time and you were able to do the hair of a movie star, like for example Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe, who would it be and why?
David Cotteblanche: James Dean, absolutely.

Interviewer: Lastly, is there any quote or motto that you live by?
David Cotteblanche: This one [pointing to a tattoo on his left arm]: ‘Too fast to live, too young to die.’”
Interviewer note: This quote is often associated with Sid Vicious from The Sex Pistols, but also appears in a lyric from the song titled “James Dean,” by The Eagles.

Growing up in Panama, Rogelio Gonzalez never dreamed he would one day be a top hair stylist in Miami. With a sharp eye for detail, Rogelio actually began his professional career as an accountant. However, he was always drawn to the world of beauty and fashion, and closely followed the latest style trends, never imagining this growing obsession was the beginning of big changes to come.

And change he did, as he made the leap towards becoming a hair stylist by working with owner Jean Marc Durante for several years before joining the Red Market Hair Salon Miami team. Since then, there’s been no looking back. Without question, it’s been the right choice for him – Rogelio has realized that his passion in life is making other people feel beautiful. He has gone on to become one of the few trusted hair stylists for Wilhelmina Models, and has a growing clientele of celebrities.

Outside of Red Market, Rogelio loves to exercise and go out on the town with international socialites. Inside Red Market, he’s busy pursuing his passion of bringing beauty to his clients. You can see examples of his latest creations below. Let Rogelio get you red-carpet ready for your next event!

Reynald Ricard

Red Market Salon New York: An Exclusive Interview with Reynald Ricard

Reynald Ricard

Reynald Ricard, one of the founders and owners of Red Market Salons

Reynald Ricard, one of the founders and owners of Red Market Salons, takes a few minutes of out his busy schedule to answer a few interview questions.

Interviewer: So, how did the concept of Red Market Salon originate?
Reynald Ricard: We used to have a salon near Pastis, in the meatpacking district. We were so busy after three months, working from seven pm until very late. Soon, we decided to move to a bigger space. Our time in the meat-packing district was a good experience, we used to have wine and hang out, but we moved because the neighborhood changed. Our first idea was to be in the meatpacking area, so that was a very special experience for our first salon.

Interviewer: Where in France are you from?
Reynald Ricard: From Eastern France. It’s about two hours from Paris, and I grew up all over France.

Reynald Ricard

The Early Days

Interviewer: How old were you when you first decided you wanted to be a hair stylist?
Reynald Ricard:
I wanted to be a hair stylist starting when I was seven or eight years old. I used to watch my mom in the salon and she was best friends with the owner there. My father was a general in the army, and very different from her. She was a mentor, and he was supportive. I went to school to learn how to style hair when I was 16 or 17. It was what I always wanted to do. For two years I lived in different cities because of my father’s job. It opened my mind to new places and diverse realities of life.

Interviewer: Who was your first hair model?
Reynald Ricard: In France, I would style my mom, she was my model. It was an amazing experience.

Interviewer: Now that you live in NYC, where do you spend most of your time?
Reynald Ricard: I live in Noho, but I spend most of my time in Soho.

Interviewer: What is your favorite destination?
Reynald Ricard: On the weekend I go to my house in upstate New York. It’s beautiful, my family loves it.

Interviewer: So, you are a family man?
Reynald Ricard: Yes, I have a daughter. She is four years old.

Interviewer: How would you define happiness?
Reynald Ricard: Family is happiness!

Here Reynald demonstrates the art of Balayage highlights, favored by celebrities today.

Interviewer: What makes you passionate about the world of hair and beauty?
Reynald Ricard: I like the transformation, and I like to see the smile of my clients. It’s important to do a good haircut or a nice color because people get so happy from it. If you lose sight of the happiness of the client, if you work too much, it’s bad. So the happiness of the client is very important.

Interviewer: What is your definition of beauty?
Reynald Ricard: Natural is beauty.

Interviewer: Can you describe your morning routine, and how you get ready for the day?
Reynald Ricard: My daughter wakes me up around 6:30am, and then I go for a run. Two days a week I start work at 9am. I also have barbershops where I work on Greenwich Avenue. So I have very busy mornings, always on the floor. I also have twenty people in Miami working at Red Market Miami. So I am busy!

Interviewer: Did you experience any hardships in being in the hair styling business? And if so, what was that like?
Reynald Ricard: It’s tough every day to have business structure. There are many challenges, especially in New York. It’s always moving and things can be difficult sometimes, but you get through that, and you learn and manage.

Interviewer: What are your hopes for the future? Where do you see Red Market in 5 years?
Reynald Ricard: We already have two salons—one in New York one in Miami. I plan to open something in East Hampton. Candy Udell [of London Jewelers] has been asking me to open something there for years, so we are planning for opening there too.

Interviewer: Lastly, who inspires you most?
Reynald Ricard: My parents are my idols. I hope to be that for my little girl.
