From knit berets to tweed newsboy caps, hats are hot this season, but the dreaded hat head is never in style.
To break up those stubborn creases and rings, Jayson Morgan from Patrick McIvor Color Studio in Bethlehem, PA, recommends REDKEN CLEAR MOISTURE INSTANT POLISHING PREP. Just lightly spray it on the hair and run your fingers through for a quick fix. —C.W.
NEW YORK MINUTE
Tom Julian is senior vice president and director of trends for McCann Erickson. In his inaugural column for American Salon, he takes a bite out of the Big Apple.
There's always something new happening in Manhattan, some restaurant or shopping destination popping up to entice those in-the-know to a new hood. In 2000 it was the Meatpacking District. Now it's the West Village's tree-lined Bleecker Street, which boasts quaint storefronts from designers like James Perse and specialty brands like Ruehl (from Abercrombie & Fitch) and Mulberry. The first designer to make this street a true destination was Marc Jacobs. Ralph Lauren, Fresh and Olive & Bette's quickly followed. And don't forget that landmark sweet shop Magnolia Bakery where there's always a line waiting for fresh baked goods. If you're going to the International Beauty Show this March, make sure to save some time to check out the neighborhood and three other New York hot spots.
