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!

Madame de Pompadour

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!

Holiday Hair

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. Kerastase has been producing high-quality hair masques for the past 25 years. These nourishing masques deep condition, bringing shine and manageability to even the most dry and brittle hair.

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

David styling a model 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.

Rogelio Gonzalez, Stylist

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

Get to Know Red Market Miami Salon Owner, 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 Miami Salon, takes a few minutes of out his busy schedule to answer a few  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!

Reynald Ricard

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.

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

courtesy of r.ebay.com

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.

*Bob: The bob is an extremely versatile hair style, and has been around for generations. It can be worn short or long, with bangs or without. The bob frames your face with a fringe for a very flattering look. You can also go for a modern or retro vibe, depending on the type of cut.
