Red Market Hair Salon New York: Going All Out With Holiday Hair

Red Market, a quality hair salon in New York, is here to tell you how to sport the best hair style this holiday season. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve, it’s the time to throw caution to the wind and “let your hair down” – or pull it up. Whether it’s adorning a sleek, deep side-parted ponytail for your family’s formal Thanksgiving, to accessorizing your messy, low chignon with a silver headband, the holidays are the time for celebrating the beauty of the season. Women can don a red-carpet look and look as fabulous as the holidays are supposed to feel. Let Red Market Salons get you red-carpet ready!

One of 2012’s most popular looks is the braid. For a loose but elegant look, women can try the off-center plait. Pulling the braid apart after it’s done creates an effortless feel. Fishtail braids are also very chic, and can be added to any style. Nikki Reed added a skinny fishtail as a braid to her low chignon, while Nicole Scherzinger turned an ultra-high ponytail into a statement by creating a fishtail braid in the ponytail.

An elevated version of the natural look is also in vogue this season. You need only a proper cut and blow dry! Volume is the way to go if you want to wear your hair au naturel. This look is also easy to maintain for women on the go, shopping for holiday gifts, cooking amazing dinners, or running from party to party. Use volumizing spray to keep your look full of height. Adding subtle waves gives a twist to the simple blowout, as Emma Stone did with her vintage face-framing waves.

Calling back to the 1920s, finger waves are trending for holiday hair as well. From Mila Kunis to Evan Rachel Woods, celebs used finger waves to add glamour and glitz to their look. Adding a smoky eye shadow amps up the drama of this look – particularly festive for a holiday like New Year’s Eve.

Sleek, shiny hair is also a stylish choice for the holidays. Women can opt for a silky, low ponytail with a side part – easy to style for those days full of activities. Stylists recommend using a shine serum to keep the look glossy.

The bun is another sexy look for women this year. Whether it’s a messy top knot, a soft side bun, or a sleek ballerina bun, the look is party ready and easy to accessorize. A sparkly clip on the side of the head could add drama to a soft bun. A simple, drugstore headband can add drama and volume to a top knot, à la Olivia Wilde. Accessories bring out the glamour of the season. Barrettes and pins can make a simple bun special, and headbands can play up or tone down a look.

In order to keep your hair in the best condition for these great holiday looks, schedule appointments at Red Market Salon in NYC early, as the holidays book up quickly.  For a cut and blow dry, or hair color treatment, be sure to time your appointments to be right before Thanksgiving, and then Christmas, depending on your maintenance level. After you find your perfect holiday style, select a photo to bring with you. Most importantly, live it up this holiday season – it’s the perfect time to create the most beautiful version of you, and cutting-edge salons like Red Market can help you create it!

Red Market Hair Salon Miami Carries Kerastase Products: Cleanse and Protect Your Hair!

In order to keep your hair lustrous and healthy, there is a two-step process you must follow, whatever your hair type. First, you must cleanse (shampoo), then treat (condition). Red Market, a luxury hair salon in Miami offers Kerastase, a line of high-end haircare products. With Kerastase, you have many products to choose from in both the areas of cleansing and treatment.

Cleanse: Cleansing refers to washing your hair from all the oil that accumulates during the day. The important part is leave some natural oil in your hair (so your hair doesn’t become dry and brittle), but also cleanse the strands from excess oil so your hair remains clean and silky. Kerastase’s shampoo line includes products such as BainChromaCaptive, a sulfate-free protective shampoo for color-treated hair. Customers can also choose the BainChromaRiche, a protective shampoo designed for drier hair. Thankfully, Kerastase’s shampoo line, unlike most shampoo lines found at the drugstore or supermarket, doesn’t contain harsh chemicals that over-dry your hair. With Kerastase, you can be sure that your hair retains needed moisture while also remaining soft and clean.

Treat: Since shampooing can leave your hair drier, depending on how often you shampoo (remember, don’t shampoo more than every other day!) it is important to treat hair with conditioner. Conditioner ensures that each strand remains silky smooth and soft to the touch. Kerastase has several conditioners that are designed for different hair types. For example, you can choose a conditioner designed for long hair, curly hair, or thinning hair. They also offer Hair Masques.

Red Market Hair Salon New York: Braids and Plaits — An Historical Perspective

Braids have come a long way since those tight pigtails from childhood. They have actually evolved into a sleek and grown-up way to contain long hair in a neat and professional manner. Not only are they a diverse and convenient choice, they are also one of the oldest hairstyles documented in history. This week Red Market Salon follows the evolution of hair braiding from Africa, to Europe, and beyond. The roots of braiding have been traced to West Africa where it began as a symbolic art form to denote culture, status, and tribe. Bridal up-dos with braids were considered the most complex forms, complete with intricate patterns and hair weaving. As with many ancient cultures, elders pass on knowledge to younger generations, and braiding was no exception. It was a very social tradition, with styles and techniques taught through the ages.

English braid

Traditional or English braid (LifeMartini)

Sometime later, the plait, or English braid, gained popularity in early Europe. Women of aristocracy wore elaborate, ornamented braids to signify their status, whereas working women used simpler braids to keep hair clean and contained. The plait is created by weaving three even sections of hair in and out of each other, beginning at the nape of the neck and descending down the back. This method is simple enough to try yourself and comfortable enough for all-day wear.

In early American history, Native Americans wore braids for its practical purpose of containing long hair. Over time, ornate braids became popular for religious rituals and war preparations, and were common in men and women alike.

French braid

By the late 1800s, the French braid was in fashion. At that time, it was considered a “new” style, but in actuality it was discovered by travelers to North Africa. The French braid consists of weaving three strands, like the plait, but unlike the traditional braid, this style begins at the crown of the head. It is considered more elegant than plaiting because it involves a more complex technique, resulting in a more sophisticated appearance. There are also variations, such as Dutch and fishtail braids, that are constructed in a similar manner but consist of weaving the hair sections under, instead of over, creating an inverse braid.

Today, braids retain their popularity among women (and some men) as a practical and elegant hairstyle. The most basic style of braid today, by far, is the English braid, with Swiss or other wrapped braids as variations. Top (crown-only) and side braids are also in fashion, as often seen worn by celebrities. Aside from their convenience and versatility, another plus is the flowing waves that result the next day.

Have fun trying out different braids on your own or with a friend. And for that special occasion, be sure to make an appointment with Red Market Salon for the ultimate styling experience.

Hair Salon in New York Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Red Market Salon, a salon in New York is about celebrating women—their beauty, style, and also their health. This NYC salon supports women at many levels, so for this reason, we’d like to take time to remind everyone of Breast Cancer Awareness month, which will be happening this October.

A diagnosis of breast cancer can be traumatizing for any woman, but when the going gets tough, women know how to “fight like a girl” to beat this disease! If detected early breast cancer is very treatable, so the diagnosis should never be considered a “death sentence.”

Breast cancer can be treated with either radiation or chemotherapy, or a combination of both. Not all breast cancer treatments lead to hair loss, but hair loss is a reality for some cancer fighters. But when you find yourself losing your beautiful locks, remember hair loss is not the end!

Some women may feel a sense of loss as they watch their hair fall, or the feeling that their hair, which once part of their personal style, can no longer define them. It’s merely a temporary side effect of the treatment that is eliminating your cancer. Also keep in mind that hair does grow back, thankfully. And once it does, you can begin styling it, perhaps creating a new look that you would never had before.

So bald really is beautiful! There are also many options to hide hair loss and baldness that are unique and stylish, while still keeping you looking feminine. For example, shaving your head before hair loss can make you feel in charge and can also give you an “edgy” look.

 

HATS

Hats are always great accessories and can compliment any outfit. Hats let you stand out from the crowd and show off your own personal style. And there is such a wide variety of headgear now to shop for that you are sure to find one that is just perfect for you! It’s still not too late in fall to grab a sun hat! These wide-brimmed hats create flair and are sure to put you in a “sunny” mood.

“If I had it my way, I would keep my hair short forever. I’ve never felt so confident as I did with short hair—I felt really good in my own skin.” ~Emma Stone.

WIGS

Consider wigs a new beginning and a chance to reinvent yourself. With a wig, you can literally choose whatever style, color, and length that you want. The possibilities are limitless! Take time to shop around and choose what fits you best. This can give you a chance to try out new styles that you might have been afraid to try before. Perhaps you’re a brunette and have always wondered what you looked like blond, but didn’t want to dye. Purchase a blond wig and rock this new style! Perhaps you have long hair, and have always wanted to try a bob, but where afraid to cut your tresses. Purchase a bobbed wig and enjoy the ease of a short hair style. You can also purchase multiple wigs to try out new and different styles.

SCARVES

Scarves, which can be worn around your head, also come in a variety of colors and fabrics. You can mix and match your scarves and can color-code them with your outfits to seems sleek and stylish. For example, a red-patterned scarf would go great with a pair of red jeans. Scarves are also a great plus in his cool, fall weather. Scarves can also be worn in multiple ways to create an exotic look.

 

HAIR GROWTH

And of course, your hair will eventually grow back. Once it does, there will be a sense of triumph and achievement. Your real hair is finally back! Now it’s time to start styling! Naturally, hair growth is a slow process, so if before you had tresses that stretched down your back, it’s going to take some time to return to your original style. But as your hair is growing, don’t be impatient. Think of this a time for transition. You can experiment with different short and cropped hair styles that maybe you’ve never had before. It’s time for a new you!

 

CROPPED HAIR STYLE

What’s especially great is that cropped hair is extremely popular these days, and there is so many versatile ways to wear short hair. You can have a boyish, edgy look, or a soft, layered feminine look. You can choose a unique cut that makes you stand out in the crowd, or you can go with the classic bob that is worn by many women and never goes out of style. You can also choose bangs, which are an awesome compliment to this look. Actresses Keira Knightley, Natalie Portman, and Katie Holmes have all sported short hair while looking stylish and beautiful! So what are all the different styles?

*The Pixie Cut: Emma Watson sporting the cute and super feminine pixie cut. It looks especially great on slimmer women since it really enhances your jaw and check bones for a sleek, beautiful look. The fringe bangs also give you a lot of options.

*Mop Top: Think short and shaggy, like the Beatles haircut. This bouncy style is a lot of fun to work with and there’s so many ways to layer this cut. This look is perfect for women with thicker, full-bodied, or wavy hair. Be sure to ruffle it up for a full-bodied look.

*Mini Afro: The mini afro is a simple look and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. It’s simple, cute, and includes mini layers all over the head.

Top Miami Salons – Haircolor Trends: Fall 2012

As the seasons change, so are the haircolor trends; ranging from the dramatic to the subtle. As we move from the hotter months into the colder months, pops of color will begin to shake up the world of haircolor and will be sported on the streets. When temperatures start to drop, haircolors will stay warm with dark chocolate brunettes, deep mahogany redheads and golden blondes. Salons in Miami and all around, will be asked to try these new hair coloring trends for all their clients. Below is a list of haircoloring trends for each hair color. 

For BRUNETTES, the trend is the “illumination technique.” This technique consists of darker hair on top and lighter color on the mid-lengths and ends; causing a Ombré hair effect. Many women are opting for bright colors like pink or purple on the ends or roots instead of the norm of natural colors. This is a look for the trendsetters and gazers as it takes someone confident to pull it off. However, this will be the most requested; a deep brunette at the roots blending into warm, golden tones at the ends.


For REDHEADS, this season will be as stunning as ever! Moving away from the rich, ruby red, and Va va voom! colors we saw for the previous seasons, this Fall/Winter, many redheads will be opting for a less extreme red that fits with more skin tones. Tracey Cunningham Celebrity Colorist and Redken Creative Consultant says Emma Stone is “one of the most vibrant redheads of our time.” Even though Emma Stone is known for changing up her hair color from blonde, to brunette, and to redhead; red being the most renowned, as Tracey states.  


For BLONDES, ash blonde is definitely having a moment. Ash blonde is a natural, multidimensional, non-fussy hair color and will be a must-have this season. The Fall/Winter blonde will have the base a shade darker to give some dimension as it  will compliment the look of the season. Tracey states  “for those on the lighter end of the spectrum, Gwyneth Paltrow’s gorgeous natural color remains a most-requested look.” To get the look, focus on Chromatics Naturals, Golds, Warm Browns and Beiges.


Now lets not forget the Ombré hair craze, as this trend isn’t going anywhere; taking a new direction for Fall 2012 and Winter 2013. This fall “The New Ombré” hair color trend will exist.  Instead of the dramatic dark-to-light transition of past seasons, the new ombré is a rich, velvety look with a super-subtle transition in color for a look that’s being seen as the “balancing act.”
