Originally launched in Seattle in the 90s, Rudy's Barbershop is a bona fide hipster institution, offering traditional mens and womens haircuts in retro barbershops across Portland and LA. This summer, the team headed all the way out to the East Coast to open a new location at Ace New York.
So far, the shop has received warm welcomes from places like Racked and New York Magazine, the latter reporting that the shop offers "oft-tattooed stylists who cater to both men and women" and is "consistently well-soundtracked with the likes of the Raveonettes and Rufus Wainwright."
Yup, sounds about right.
No hot SoFla hotel is complete without a sleek salon doling out sleek tresses, so it was inevitable that the W Fort Lauderdale would join the blowout set. And it comes with serious A-list cred, as the beachfront property is the proud new location of a Ted Gibson Salon.
For anyone who doesn't know, Gibson is the kind of hairstylist who's always in demand at events like last night's Golden Globes. You may have also seen him work his magic on What Not to Wear.

Baby, it's hot outside. Summer hasn't even officially begun but the humidity is rising and hair is frizzing all over Miami. If the hairdryer is a girl's best friend in sweaty weather, then these Miami hotels should be on your BFF list.
Not every hotel spa includes a salon, so we've combed the city (har, har!) to bring you this list of Miami Hotels With Blow Outs on the Menu.
· Warren Tricomi Salon at W South Beach: The salon is down on the ground level but nothing says glam quite like an in-room blow out from a Tricomi stylist, $150.
· Elemis Spa at Loews Miami Beach: Shampoo and style, including blow dry, $50. (Or a blow dry added to any service, $40)
We know what youíre thinking: reality TV stars at hotelsóno, thanks. But this tale does not involve Speidi or Omarosa or a certain single father of eight. No, the reality TV dude in question here is Danish hairdresser Rene Fris, who was one of the judges for Bravoís Shear Genius. Here he is wielding his scissors in a suite at the Kimberly Hotel in Midtown Manhattan.
But before you get too excited, Fris has not started a salon residency in the hotelóhe was there to give a few lucky folks a makeover. The hair, make-up, and styling session bestowed upon Fred and Susan Denischuk and their daughter Melanie Jaskiw was a silent auction prize at the Viennese Opera Ball. For the lowly among us, thatís one of the big charity galas on the New York City social calendar, thrown by the U.S.-Austrian Chamber of Commerce. Itís the kind of ball where ladies wear long gowns and men are required to wear "white tie and decorations."
Itís held at the Waldorf-Astoria, but it was the smaller but still luxurious Kimberly Hotel which donated the rooms for the Denischuk family to claim their makeover prize last month.
For anyone who's a fan of the Hair Room Service at Park Hyatt Hotels--it's hairstyling done in the comfort of your hotel room--you'll be pleased to know that famous French "hair artist" (and photographer/filmmaker), John Nollet, has embarked on a world tour to 11 Park Hyatts. Nollet has been a stylist to such stars as Juliette Binoche, Uma Thurman, Johnny Depp, Marion Cotillard, and Monica Belluci. But now he can do your little old 'do. Here's some promotional copy on the hair tour:
Heíll set up shop in a Park Hyatt suite for one week, where guests can get a private hair diagnosis and haircut or color treatment. Nollet always travels in style, so as part of the partnership, Louis Vuitton designed bespoke trunks to hold Nolletís arsenal of tools and creative accessories.
We are loving this photo of him carrying the LV luggage. It reminds us of another bearded man we know--Jesus. With all this promotion behind him (Celebs! Oscars! LV! Jesus Look-a-like!), we hope this man can work miracles on Park Hyatt's guest hair.
