We recommend Andre Richard Salon, one of the better hair salons in City Center East. It is extremely popular and has good reviews. It is also one of the most expensive hair salons in the area. It also usually opens early.
The name André Richard — he of the eponymous salon — pops up in relation to everything from man-cuts to balayage, but a lesser-known forte? The silver fox. “You see clients say, ‘I’m done with chemicals; I’m done with a salon every four weeks,’” he says. He’ll use foils to ease the color transition, products to brighten the gray, and a fierce cut to “make it look even hotter.” Single-process from $65; highlights from $100. André Richard Salon, 1218 Locust Street; ARS Lab, 201 South Camac Street; the new ARS Parlour, 204 South 12th Street; all in Midtown Village, 215-735-1590.
In addition to cuts and color, Andre Richard keeps 'em coming back with extensions, relaxers, keratin treatments, and special event make-up. [Image credit: Andre Richard Salon]

A few weeks back, the team and I collaborated with some amazing Philadelphia area retailers and the Philly Inquirer for a fall fashion spread. (You may have seen it.) It was an amazing day filled with fashion, art, and style — and we were honored (and thrilled) to be included among the styling team! ARS Stylist, Erin Gallagher styled the hair for the shoot and I worked on the makeup.
Last night, the who's who of the Philadelphia fashion and retail scene — as well as Erin, Rachid, and I — came out for a special "Fall Fashion Event" at the Inquirer building in downtown Philadelphia. It was a panel discussion lead by famed Philly.com and Philadelphia Inquirer fashion journalist, Elizabeth Wellington. Along with me, the pannel was composed of Ellen Shepp (from Joan Shepp) and Ann Gitter (Owner of Knit Wit) representatives from Theory and Alica DiMichele.
Each of the designers styled the model — Malika Miller — to show a look that best represented their brand's signature style: Ann Gitter worked the theme of the shoot (monochromatic styling) along side the recurring texture trend. Ellen Shepp showed the crowd how to do the athleisure trend right before offering a word of advice. "Play with your look and try different things" she advised the crowd, "And, if at the end [of the getting ready process] you don't feel good leaving your house... don't."
Known for their mastery of minimalism Theory showed off a look combining texture and monochromatic colors while the Alica DiMichele team showed off the art of sexy.
In the world of makeup... It's all about berry colors on the lips this season; warm, cool, and everything in between. I recommend layering up; you can't go wrong with an ombréed lip and don't be afraid to go bold — deep reds are in!

Rachid, Lisa, Charlie, and I met up with the Christian Tipton and his team from Razor's Edge Barbershop for a lesson in a men's hot shave.

After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Brooke Lanier spent a year in Italy and later earned her Masters of Fine Arts degree in Painting fro the Tyler School of Art. She's roamed the world; showing her art in Rome, Prague, and across the United States; most notibly the Smithsonian Institute's S. Dillon Ripley Center and the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
Her latest show, Going Away Without Moving opens on Thursday and is widely inspired by the artists own sense of adventure. "I took the title from an eight year old friend of mine" Lanier said, "He was going on vacation, but not going away. For me, it's an internal thing. You can go away without leaving where you are. The landscapes have contemplative meanings."
While the official number of pieces to be on display has yet to be finalized, the show's work has taken more than a year and a half to prepare and most of them are very large. "You're put in your place" she says, referring to the peripherally expansive pieces, "But, in a good way."

9 people on the ARS Team are now certified in Hotheads Hair Extensions. We learned how to add length, volume, and chemical free hair color to any hair texture, color, and length. Take a look at what we did!
Hotheads Hair Extensions are human hair, adhesive weft extensions that are applied without the need for tools or heat. Our goal was to create a product for the salon professional that was simple…. fast…. and extraordinary; we have done just that.
Hotheads Hair Extensions are uniquely designed to lay completely seamless and undetectable in the hair. Manufactured with amazing quality human remy hair with the cuticle in tact allows our hair to be reapplied up to 3 times, while still looking and feeling amazing. Clients will get 8 to 10 weeks of wear from each application. Hotheads is an extraordinary revolution to the hair industry.
For clients, our products have completely changed the way their hair looks and how they feel about themselves. For stylists, this has completely evolved their extension business.
