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.

*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.

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.”

Book your online appointment to get ahead in with the Fall Trends at Red Market Miami, or call us at (305) 864-3978. Hours: Mon-Sat:10 AM-8 PM Sun:12 PM-6 PM.

Best Hair Salon in Miami: Balayage

This coloring technique emerged in Paris in the 1970s; the word “balayage,” pronounced bah-lee-AHZGE, is French for “sweep away,” a reference to the way in which the color is painted onto the hair.

Balayage color is painted in soft brush strokes across the surface of the hair, leaving you with natural-looking swipes of color that flow from thick to thin and play off the hair’s natural movement. Even better, balayage won’t leave you with any signs of demarcation, creating a softer and more manageable grow-out. Meet our hair stylist in Miami at Red Market Salon to learn more about the Balayage Technique.

 Balayage made an early appearance at the exclusive Carita salon in Paris in the ‘70s. At the time it was known as ‘Balayage à Coton,’ named for the strips of cotton that are used to keep the colored hair separate from the untouched hair.

Balayage was truly revolutionary, created at a time when the industry standard was a frosting cap. The ‘80s brought a wave of foil highlights, but it wasn’t until the ‘90s that balayage became widely accepted by popular culture in the U.S.

My Hot Rod New York: Guy Fieri

By CARLA SPARTOS for the nypost.com

When Food Network star Guy Fieri, 44, first visited NYC back in 2005, he got out of a taxi wearing flip-flops, Dickies board shorts and a yellow leather jacket — in November. He’s been turning heads ever since: His brash greaser-meets-beach-bum style has become such a phenomenon that Bobby Moynihan (inset) does a regular impression of him on “Saturday Night Live.” And Fieri loves it: “You have to laugh at yourself. Dude is spot on with it,” he says. In September, Fieri will debut his first NYC restaurant, Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar, in Times Square, so he’s been spending a lot of time at the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District, which he calls home base when he’s in town. You can also catch him at the fifth annual 2012 New York City Wine & Food Festival; tickets go on sale tomorrow at nycwff.org. This is his hot-rod New York.

2. Red Market Salon, 13 E. 13th St., between Fifth Avenue and University Place

“I had long hair, and the girl that cut my hair in California said, ‘It’s about time you make some style change.’ I said, ‘Fine. Do whatever you want.’ So we get done and she takes the bag off my head, and I’m like, ‘Did you wash the shampoo out?’ And she’s like, ‘That’s your hair color.’ I go, ‘What have you done? I’m a dead man!’ But it just stuck. I was spending so much time in New York, I had to find somebody else to do it. I was like, ‘Aw man, this is not gonna be cool.’ But it’s this totally funky place — the girls are super-friendly — and they nailed it. My producer wanted my nails trimmed — and in they come with the manicure while they’re cutting my hair. And I’m like, ‘This is strange.’ But no pedicure!”[/box]

The latest video of Guadalupe Pineda featuring her daughter Mariana G. Pineda.

David Cotteblanche of Red Market NYC was honored to create a style for the duo that would embrace the poised and elegant nature of Pieneda and daughter, while maintaining the down to earth nature that allows the vocalists to remain familiar and connected with their audience. This case presented an intriguing challenge for David. Providing not one, but two looks that would softly complement each other rather than compete. The result: a heartfelt duet in voice and style.

Guadalupe Pineda came to be known as one of her native Mexico’s grassroots musical icons. Performing music from all over the Spanish-speaking world for audiences large and small, Pineda built a reputation and fan base, concert by concert, over the course of a career that spanned decades. Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Pineda early on relocated to Mexico City, where she studied sociology and political science before embarking on her career as a vocalist.
