WORKING GIRL SALON: A blowout at 10 p.m. no longer requires a house call. Reynald Ricard and David Cotteblanche, formerly of Pierre Michel, are set to open Red Market, a new salon in the Meatpacking District catering to the working class, complete with late-night hours, Internet service and a lounge serving complimentary drinks. To be located on the fourth floor at 32 Gansevoort Street, the salon will have hours from 4 p.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Scheduled to open in mid-June, Red Market will offer cuts, color and makeup services, as well as a nutritionist by appointment only. Prices start at $50 for a blowout, $100 for a haircut and $220 for highlights.
SPA HAMPTONS: Summer is around the corner — and so the migration begins. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, the Bridgehampton outpost of Exhale Mind Body Spa will offer at-home services to the local jet set for $250 per treatment. On the menu is acupuncture, cupping, vibrational therapy and acu-organ detox — a combination of acupuncture and a hot oil abdominal therapy to release body toxins.
CODE RED: Aesthetician-to-the-stars Sonya Dakar has created a new facial treatment called Red Light to address aging. The 40-minute service uses photobiostimulation, said to increase collagen production for firm and supple skin. Dakar applies her Visualift eye cream and Cellular Patch cream during the facial, too, which costs $500.
SUMMER MIST: Anakiri skin care's latest offering is a Mineral Mist toner, formulated with sea algae extract and oat beta glucan to address moisture and cell renewal. Originally created as Anakiri's daily-use toner, Mineral Mist is available in seven different blends to cater to different skin care needs. Each 2-oz. mist retails for $28 at spas nationwide, including the spa at the newly opened Wynn Las Vegas hotel.HOPE FOR HAIR LOSS: Women suffering from hair loss now have a place to go to receive some advice, and even treatment. The Women's Center for Hair Loss, located at 60 East 56th Street, was founded by Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, a facial plastic surgeon who now specializes in hair replacement.
The center, which opened in February, wants to give women a broad range of information regarding hair loss, from how to make hair look thicker, to referrals to subspecialists, to surgical treatments by Dr. Epstein, if one is a candidate. An initial consultation with Dr. Epstein costs between $150 and $450, depending on the level of services provided.
