Have you picked up this month’s “O” yet? My esteemed client, Amy Fine Collins, shares her thoughts on her hair routine, which I have developed for her over many years. She says, “The best hair advice I’ve received is to choose a cut based on face shape. My stylist first told me that 25 years ago, and he’s been cutting for my oval shape ever since.” We’ve been together as stylist and client ever since and have created many a good hair memory, including the “super high, rockabilly pompadour” she refers to from a photos shoot for her book. “It was a hair fantasy come true.”
Pick up the issue, on stands now!

The New York City sunshine this week could be characterized as unrelenting, driving you to the nearest accessory department to pick up a stylish wide brimmed hat for your next social outing. But there is an art to choosing a hat and hairstyle that will complement each other, rather than compete. And for a summer garden party, the pairing must be well edited and chic.
For an excellent example of the look done right, we look no farther than our previously featured style maven, Alexandra Leighton. DNAinfo New York’s Style Insider caught up with Alexandra at the Frick Collection’s Annual Garden Party to capture her perfectly balanced chignon, coupled with her rose brimmed hat. The scale, simplicity, and placement of the chignon all contribute to the success of the style beneath the brim.

This spring marked the first semester of Laguardia College’s Presidents Society program. Students undergo a rigorous selection process to determine their commitment to leadership and community service. Once selected, the program provides the community college students with valuable opportunities to meet local leaders and entrepreneurs.
Our salon had the distinct pleasure of treating the young ladies of the Presidents Society to a day of beauty and pampering before their gala dinner at the United Nations on Tuesday evening.

OnTuesday evening, Chris Brennan and Tamsin Corcoran joined us at the salon, along with our friends and clients, for an evening dedicated to travel and discovery. Chris and Tamsin represent African Territories, a travel group that maintains lodges and organizes safaris in Kenya and Tanzania. They bring eco-tourism to some of the most remote and beautiful parts of the world. This means they are committed to preserving and benefiting the communities and environments in which their camps and lodges are set. Part of the proceeds go toward conservation of local ecosystems, and each camp provides employment opportunities as well as education and health projects for local community members.
I had the unparalleled pleasure of visiting Kenya in February, and thanks to Chris and Tamsin, I had the experience of a lifetime. It is an experience I wanted to share with my salon family and friends, not only for the beauty of the wildlife and scenery, but because I admire the symbiotic relationship African Territories has cultivated with the local communities.
For more information on African Territories’s lodging and safaris, please visit their website at http://www.africanterritories.co.ke/.
