Warren-Tricomi, in partnership with the United States Tennis Association, will outfit the player’s area of Arthur Ashe Stadium with a full-service salon.

The two-part system, due to launch in Sephora this winter for a suggested price of $95, also includes a replaceable filter cartridge, designed to last six months.

De-Stressing Eye Care. Both items are designed to appeal to men on the go and will be available in Sothys spas and salons in October.
