Blow Out: HAIR Raising Time at the Red Market Salon in Union Square NYC

In New York City, there is no shortage of options for getting your hair coiffed, blown or washed. But in a city with so many choices, much like Goldilocks, it’s important to find just the right fit. For some, that might be location, or price, and sometimes it’s just a feeling. Recently I attended the opening of the newly redone¬†Red Market salon in Union Square NYC. And based on that last, aforementioned notion, I have a feeling that the salon and I are on a very similar wavelength. Not only do they stay open late; till 11 pm Tuesday through Friday, a selling point and rarity on the island, but the fun location is covered in old photography, and black and white pop culture images. One of these includes a recreation of one of my favorite movie posters.

Inspired by the film poster for the movie Blowup, and one of my favorite images in film history, this art is fittingly hanging at the bottom of the stairs to the salon.

Guests at the event were treated to some fun, new styles including curls and braids, courtesy of the salon. My girlfriend and I went for the waves.
