Red Market: The “Go To” for Balayage in NYC

Everyone is talking about balayage, a hair painting technique that’s been around for quite some time and still making waves! If you’re looking for a more natural, sun kissed look, you may want to try balayage over your traditional highlights.

Balayage is truly a work of art by the colorist.  The process is all freehand, without the use of foil. In terms of upkeep, it’s extremely simple. Unlike highlights, your regrowth will look more natural, which means less maintenance between appointments. Red Market is known for their French hair styling techniques and quickly became the “go to” for balayage in NYC.

Red Market Hair Salon New York: Pomp and Circumstance

Red Market, a hair salon in New York is all about keeping you updated on the latest fashions. We believe the best fashions never truly go out of style. One great example of this is the pompadour, a flashy, sweeping hair-do that originated in the 1700’s. Madame de Pompadour, the fashion-conscious mistress of France’s King Louis XV, was the very first to wear this hair style. Since then, the pompadour has experienced several adaptations, but has remained ever-popular throughout the centuries! So it’s true—the best looks really never do go out of style!

The “pomp” was originally stylish with Madame de Pompadour and other members of the French court. It experienced its second wave of popularity from the 1890’s-1910’s. Then men began “rocking the rooster” during the rock-n-roll 50’s era. Famous rockers, most notably The King Elvis Presley, donned the look. Since then, many well-known celebrities have worn the coiffed hair style, up until the 21st Century.

As you can see, the pompadour hairstyle is very versatile and many different celebrities sport it, both men and women. Whether your pompadour is flashy and feminine, or modern and manly, it is sure to draw envy and attention. But not everyone can rock the pompadour hairstyle. It requires a certainly vivaciousness. After all, big hair needs a big personality! You can be outgoing and full of moxy, like the singer Pink. You can be quirky and fun, like Conan O’Brien. Or you can be soulful and charismatic like Elvis Presley.

The pompadour is created by sweeping the hair up from the sides and forehead, so that is worn high over your face. The essential feature of the pomp is that it must be worn high in the front, and shorter on the sides and back. However, there are many variations to this style. For example, a ‘quiff’ is a mix between the hard-edged mohawk and the pompadour.You can try to create the pompadour yourself at home, but this tricky hair style is best left to the professionals. The professional stylists at Red Market will create the perfect pompadour for your personality and facial features. Whatever style you choose, it is sure to reflect your unique personality and enhance your look!

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 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.

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.

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.”
