BUZZ U: Meatpacking district-based retailers Alexander McQueen and Jeffrey can expect a stylish new neighbor come summer 2003. Bumble and bumble is building their new corporate headquarters, Bumble and bumble University, on 415 West 13th Street. Current offices are located above the company’s flagship salon on 146 East 56th Street. The new digs will measure 44,500 square feet and inhabit the top five floors of a now-three-story building, according to Susan Penzner of Susan Penzner Real Estate. The space will house the hair-care company’s product development, new media, creative, training, design and finance divisions.
HACKER PROMOTED: Chris Hacker has been promoted to senior vice president of marketing and design for Aveda. Hacker will continue to lead Aveda’s global marketing and design domains. Hacker joined Aveda in July 2000 as vice president/creative director and was responsible for all aspects of design for the company, including visual merchandising, packaging, store design and advertising. His title was expanded to vice president, marketing and design in July 2001, when he assumed responsibility for the brand’s marketing division.
MEMENTO: Keeping in mind that differentiation can make or break a salon’s traffic flow, Salon a Deux offers a number of "little extras" to keep customers coming back for more. Throughout the month of August, the 15-year-old fixture at 1117 Madison Avenue is offering a free manicure (an $18 value) with the purchase of a pedicure, and a free deep conditioner (a $45 value) with the purchase of a blowout. Reflexology services can take away the lull caused by time-consuming color treatments, ($55 for 30 minutes, $75 for 60 minutes), and from Thanksgiving to New Year’s, free caviar and champagne flows throughout the salon’s redwood-lined hallways.
NAILING IT: Despite a cultlike following that includes the likes of media darling and Manhattan nail-salon owner Jin Soon Choi, nail company Barielle is desperate to shed its old-lady image. To that end, the 30-year-old company based in Great Neck, N.Y., has launched Barielle Therapy, a nine-item line focused on upscale luxury that sports crisp, slick packaging. Products from Barielle Therapy include Nail Thickening Solution ($17), Pedi-Scrub Foot Smoother with natural pumice ($19) and Ultra Soft Hand Crème ($15.) The new line hits Henri Bendel, Lord & Taylor, Sephora and Dillard’s in mid-August.
PAGE TURNER: Manhattan-based, curl-obsessed salon owner Ouidad is sharing her two decades’ worth of curl knowledge in a new paperback, Curl Talk.

The book will retail for $10.95 and is set to launch in September.

“People should be a lot more honest in expressing both the dark and light of themselves. We need to give each other the space to do that because it’s the only way we can grow and evolve,” says @noelwells of her new film “Mr. Roosevelt,” which is largely based on her own struggles. Unexpectedly leaving @nbcsnl in 2014 after just one season, Wells felt set back in her self-esteem and career trajectory. She quickly refocused her energy to more personal projects, which led to the completion of “Mr. Roosevelt.” Read the rest of WWD’s interview with the “Master of None” actress on WWD.com #wwdeye (📷: @jilliansollazzo)
