Red Market Hair Salon New York: Pomp and Circumstance

Red Market, a hair salon in New York is all about keeping you updated on the latest fashions. We believe the best fashions never truly go out of style. One great example of this is the pompadour, a flashy, sweeping hair-do that originated in the 1700’s. Madame de Pompadour, the fashion-conscious mistress of France’s King Louis XV, was the very first to wear this hair style. Since then, the pompadour has experienced several adaptations, but has remained ever-popular throughout the centuries! So it’s true—the best looks really never do go out of style!

The “pomp” was originally stylish with Madame de Pompadour and other members of the French court. It experienced its second wave of popularity from the 1890’s-1910’s. Then men began “rocking the rooster” during the rock-n-roll 50’s era. Famous rockers, most notably The King Elvis Presley, donned the look. Since then, many well-known celebrities have worn the coiffed hair style, up until the 21st Century.

As you can see, the pompadour hairstyle is very versatile and many different celebrities sport it, both men and women. Whether your pompadour is flashy and feminine, or modern and manly, it is sure to draw envy and attention. But not everyone can rock the pompadour hairstyle. It requires a certainly vivaciousness. After all, big hair needs a big personality! You can be outgoing and full of moxy, like the singer Pink. You can be quirky and fun, like Conan O’Brien. Or you can be soulful and charismatic like Elvis Presley.

The pompadour is created by sweeping the hair up from the sides and forehead, so that is worn high over your face. The essential feature of the pomp is that it must be worn high in the front, and shorter on the sides and back. However, there are many variations to this style. For example, a ‘quiff’ is a mix between the hard-edged mohawk and the pompadour.You can try to create the pompadour yourself at home, but this tricky hair style is best left to the professionals. The professional stylists at Red Market will create the perfect pompadour for your personality and facial features. Whatever style you choose, it is sure to reflect your unique personality and enhance your look!

Holiday Hair

Red Market Hair Salon New York: Going All Out With Holiday Hair

Red Market, a quality hair salon in New York, is here to tell you how to sport the best hair style this holiday season. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve, it’s the time to throw caution to the wind and “let your hair down” – or pull it up. Whether it’s adorning a sleek, deep side-parted ponytail for your family’s formal Thanksgiving, to accessorizing your messy, low chignon with a silver headband, the holidays are the time for celebrating the beauty of the season. Women can don a red-carpet look and look as fabulous as the holidays are supposed to feel. Let Red Market Salons get you red-carpet ready!

One of 2012’s most popular looks is the braid. For a loose but elegant look, women can try the off-center plait. Pulling the braid apart after it’s done creates an effortless feel. Fishtail braids are also very chic, and can be added to any style. Nikki Reed added a skinny fishtail as a braid to her low chignon, while Nicole Scherzinger turned an ultra-high ponytail into a statement by creating a fishtail braid in the ponytail.

An elevated version of the natural look is also in vogue this season. You need only a proper cut and blow dry! Volume is the way to go if you want to wear your hair au naturel. This look is also easy to maintain for women on the go, shopping for holiday gifts, cooking amazing dinners, or running from party to party. Use volumizing spray to keep your look full of height. Adding subtle waves gives a twist to the simple blowout, as Emma Stone did with her vintage face-framing waves.

Calling back to the 1920s, finger waves are trending for holiday hair as well. From Mila Kunis to Evan Rachel Woods, celebs used finger waves to add glamour and glitz to their look. Adding a smoky eye shadow amps up the drama of this look – particularly festive for a holiday like New Year’s Eve.

Sleek, shiny hair is also a stylish choice for the holidays. Women can opt for a silky, low ponytail with a side part – easy to style for those days full of activities. Stylists recommend using a shine serum to keep the look glossy.

The bun is another sexy look for women this year. Whether it’s a messy top knot, a soft side bun, or a sleek ballerina bun, the look is party ready and easy to accessorize. A sparkly clip on the side of the head could add drama to a soft bun. A simple, drugstore headband can add drama and volume to a top knot, à la Olivia Wilde. Accessories bring out the glamour of the season. Barrettes and pins can make a simple bun special, and headbands can play up or tone down a look.

In order to keep your hair in the best condition for these great holiday looks, schedule appointments at Red Market Salon in NYC early, as the holidays book up quickly.  For a cut and blow dry, or hair color treatment, be sure to time your appointments to be right before Thanksgiving, and then Christmas, depending on your maintenance level. After you find your perfect holiday style, select a photo to bring with you. Most importantly, live it up this holiday season – it’s the perfect time to create the most beautiful version of you, and cutting-edge salons like Red Market can help you create it!
