Get a Hipster Haircut at The Ace's New Barbershop

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 20 W 29th St [map], New York, NY, United States, 10001-4502

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.

There is seemingly no end to wave of Hotel Fitness news these days! Today, we've got word of a cool complex, The Underground, at Le Parker Meridien in New York which encompasses a spa, fitness center, two salons and a healthy cafe.

Long known for its delicious Norma's restaurant, secret burger joint and rooftop swimming pool, surprisingly, Le Parker Meridien has never had its own spa--until now. Moonshine has just opened in the hotel's new Underground space. Yes, Moonshine where the dark, cave-like treatment rooms are named after Prohibition-era cocktails like Sidecar, Gimlet, Bee’s Knees, Rusty Nail, Stinger and Salty Dog.

But of course, the custom massage and facial treatments here don't pump toxins into you but rather, extract them out. Although, there is a shot of moonshine on offer before your treatments. Massages and facials (which use Tata Harper products) start at $120 for 60-minutes.

Forget The Big-Name Restos, Sally Hershberger's Coming to SLS South Beach

UPDATE: Despite getting our news from a solid source a little while back, it appears that the plans were not finalized or have changed. After we published this story, we heard from the publicity team repping SLS, who said that our info was inaccurate and Hershberger won't be moving into SLS at South Beach, after all. Insert sad face here.

Ladies, this may be almost as exciting as the news that Lenny Kravitz would be working his hotel sex magic on The SLS Hotel at South Beach. Almost.

Along with those big-name chefs from the SBE Group--Jose Andres, Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi blah blah blah--one more big name will be joining this hotel when it finally opens in 2012: messy-cool hairdresser du jour Sally Hershberger. Finally, Miami may leave the flatirons and Brazilian treatments alone for just a minute and give choppy, piecey, total rock stair 'dos or big, sexy beach waves a try instead.

Get a Blo Job at the W Hollywood's New Blowout Bar

Traditional hotel salons might be as last season as the pixie cut. Following in the steps of The SLS, the W Hollywood just opened its own blowout salon, Blo Blow Dry Bar.

You won't see a single pair of scissors at Blo; the salon only does blowouts. The typical service includes a wash and blowout in about 30 minutes for $33. At that price, we'd be tempted to lazily have someone else do our hair each day we stay at the hotel.

Just In Time For Awards Season, The SLS Opens Its Hair Salon Tomorrow

The Ciel Spa

Good news, celebs! You won't have to tote along your hair-dryer, straightener and other bulky hair tools when you stay at the SLS Hotel from this week. Instead let someone else worry about it and get a professional blowout at the hotel's new Sally Hershberger Style Studio, which opens tomorrow.

The Style Studio is a first for the celeb hair stylist. She's previously tamed the tresses of Michelle Pfeiffer and Meg Ryan, so she might just pass muster to handle your hair (we're assuming you don't have to be blonde for her to work on you).

Sexy Locks by Sally Hershberger Coming to The SLS Hotel in February

Sally Hershberger

Usually when we stay at hotels, we just pray that the hotel has a hairdryer in the bathroom that's not from the 1980s (and that we remembered to pack a brush.) And if we're ever willing to give the hotel's salon a chance, it never seems to measure up to our salon back home (and often at a much higher cost.)

But now when guests stay at The SLS Hotel in Los Angeles, they can rest assured that just downstairs is a legit hair salon as the hotel has just announced a new partnership with top celebrity hair stylist Sally Hershberger.

Hershberger's first-ever Style Studio will open inside the hotel's Ciel Spa on February 1 and will offer blow-drying and styling services seven days a week from 9am to 9pm. Guests can get a wash and blow-dry from Hershberger stylists for $85 while styling services will start at $150.

For Realz? $99 Special "Opening" Rates at Gansevoort South

Go To The Hotel's Web

The Gansevoort South has been open for nearly three months now but an email just arrived in our inbox announcing $99 room rates (based on availability of course) as a way to celebrate the hotel's opening and the opening of the Philippe Chow restaurant and the Cutler Hair Salon.

Aside from the low off-season rate, the hotel is also offering guests 15 percent off when dining at Philippe and 25 percent off Cutler services during its first month open.

However, don't be so quick to book just yet. The email itself was a little blurry, so we're still not sure if this is actually an honest promotion or if the Gansevoort is a victim of some clever spam. Plus, $99 even for Miami in the off-season is as serious steal.

We did look for those low rates this summer but managed to only find a steady rate of $195 in July for a deluxe double. August increased to about $235.

We have an email in to the hotel to determine exactly if this is a real deal or not and if it's legit, how to go about and get a $99 room rate. So Stay Tuned!

Gansevoort South to Get Salon by Aussie Hair Guru

The Gansevoort South hotel is getting closer and closer to opening, finally. We hit up the website and found that they were taking reservations after Feb. 22nd although the only room available was going for $725 a night.

However, if you are looking to get your hair did there you will have to wait until March. That is when Aussie hair guru Rodney Cutler will open his third salon inside the hotel (He has two salons in Manhattan.) WWD reports:

The 1,100-square-foot, 11-chair salon was designed by Peter Millard and is a Redken concept location that will offer many of the same features provided by Cutler's Manhattan units -- editorial fashion images, complimentary scalp and shoulder massages and a full complement of Cutler and Redken products -- but will also take its cue from the hip Gansevoort vibe, said Cutler.

"Everything we do, I feel we have to cater to the neighborhood," he said. "The Gansevoort is clean and minimal with lots of texture, and our decor will reflect that. "

Cutler's hair products will also be found in-room for guests and full-sized products will be available in the mini-bar as well.

All of this has us wondering, are celebrity hair stylists in hotels the new celebrity chef-helmed restaurants?

Hair Matters at the Waldorf Astoria

Forget the top chef and hot hotel restaurant, what about the hotel salon?

The hotel salon offerings seem to range from the "Saloon" salon (usually in Eastern Europe or Asia), the old timer barber shop, and the top of the line, a $1,000-per-cut salons. Of course a place like the Waldorf Astoria has one of those top of the line salons, the Kenneth Salon. So good is this salon that Good Housekeeping raves about it and names its polishing hair cream as their best find in such a category:

Situated in New York City's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, Kenneth Salon is legendary. Creative Director Kevin Lee wants clients to love their hair, so he steers clear of ultratrendy looks in favor of uncomplicated styles women can do on their own. Our top pick: Polishing Hair Cream ($20) locks out humidity without leaving tresses weighed down or sticky

So, if you want to look like you belong in the Waldorf, you better see Kenneth and make sure your hair is shiny and plays the part.
