BUYING PINK IN OCTOBER = A GOOD CAUSE

BEAUTY at THE PLAZA by WARREN-TRICOMI and REBECCA TAYLOR

WORDS Judith Ecochard

Retail merchandise turns a pretty pink every October, as fashion and beauty companies offer limited editions…with proceeds going to worthy 501 (c)3s…as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (education/research/benefits).

Two of our favs arrived in our inbox.

BUT FIRST- A DIGRESSION:


The best haircut we ever had, we are so not kidding…was on the last day of NY’s Fashion Week…at the Warren-Tricomi Salon.

Besides the fact that we practically fell asleep in those plush massage chairs as we had our hair washed (hint---get a double wash cause the head massage that goes with it cannot possibly last too long)…

…we only trust salons where a meaningful portion of the stylists have long locks -done right.

Because that means to us that healthy hair is as important an MO- as getting a trim.

Thanks Aurora who snipped our- at first wet -then dry hair to perfection.

WE KNOW: When we got back to the Bryant Park Tents for the last show (for us) –the Getty Images photog told us whatever we did to our hair, keep it up.

We are happy to see that The Plaza Beauty Boutique by Warren-Tricomi- has two specials in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month:

Cult favorite Revitalash lash-strengthening formula dishes out a complimentary mascara and a Pink Ribbon Cosmetic Bag with purchase. (Portion of proceeds to the cause).



















And:
Accessory designer Lucia Tristao attractive headband subtly adorned with a pink ribbon and secured with a rhinestone band…with 20% of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Awareness programs in the hopes of contributing to the cure.
