Austin's Returns to NYC's Fashion Week
Austin’s Returns to NYC’s Fashion Week
For the second year in a row Austin’s Salon & Day Spa will be heading to New York City to take the lead on a show at fashion week. This year they’ll be doing hair and makeup for Doucette Duvall, a new line of wearable, sophisticated pieces. The show runs during the first weekend in February at The Hotel Chelsea . Beth Astin, co-owner of Austin’s, says the staff is extra excited because last year when they worked on Austin Scarlett’s fashion show they only got to do makeup. This year they’ll be doing the whole shebang.
Austin’s has long been associated with Aveda products but the salon recently picked up a new line called Profound Beauty. They’ll still have the Aveda products, which are popular with a lot of clients, but after about three years of research Astin and co-owner Ken Langston decided to pick up another, less-exposed line. “It’s a little bit more exclusive and a little bit more personalized,” Astin, says. Profound Beauty features shampoos and conditioners that are geared toward cleansing and conditioning specific hair types as opposed to making hair do different things like curl or straighten. Astin notes that Profound Beauty products can’t be bought online because the products are only recommended after a consultation with a stylist who assesses your scalp condition and hair texture. In order to let clients experience the new products, the Austin’s staff is currently offering a free hair mask with a haircut or color.
