Despite a tanking economy, celebrity hairstylists are expanding their beauty empires, explaining that women still need to look and feel beautiful now more than ever. Upper East Side darling Paul Labrecque has taken over the salon and spa at Core: Club, the exclusive members-only space located at 66 East 55th Street. The salon, unlike the club, is open to the public, but clients can use Core’s facilities, such as its 24-hour gym and magnificent dining room, with a guest invite from Labrecque. The spa, which offers private showers and dressing rooms for each guest, is reason enough to visit.
Warren-Tricomi is also not letting the gloom of Wall Street affect expansion: On the heels of opening a salon and retail outpost at The Plaza, the duo has landed at Miami’s hottest new hotel, The Fontainebleau. Located inside Lapis Spa, the 2,500-square-foot Warren-Tricomi salon was designed by Richardson Sadeki, who also designed Lapis, and offers cuts, color and style services from its six-chair space. Both Joel Warren and Edward Tricomi plan to make trips throughout the year to Miami, rotating between there and their Manhattan; Greenwich, Conn., and West Hollywood digs.
