Just Can't Get Enough
Have you ever been to Ricky’s NYC? It’s where we go when we’ve got over the balayage and need some Manic Panic, where we pick up some Japanese Yu-Be when the wind is icy and the snow too cold. New York is our beauty Mecca: we Skype Mary Helen Bowers each week for our plié practise and to get a peek into her so fresh studio, and we rush to Malin + Goetz’s and Bumble and bumble’s flagships. One of fashion’s doyennes of New York, Donna Karan, has recently paid homage to her city with her new DKNY MYNY scent. We ask our favourites to divulge their Big Apple secrets.
“There have been so many it’s impossible to break them all down but few things beat the energy of the city on a rooftop with great friends for a New York summer sunset. It’s an indescribable city to be a creative in because you can really curate your career here and no dream is impossible if you’ve got the drive to throw caution to the wind and try it. My favourite beauty destination in New York is... Aire, it’s an incredible luxury bath house in Tribeca. Great Jones Day Spa does the best massage around and the Caudalie flagship store in West Village has incredible skincare. Fox and Boy salon in Soho stocks Evo hair products and amazing Malin + Goetz candles.”
“My favorite New York experience... Right now is The Grand Banks in Tribeca. A friend of mine owns it; it’s a sailboat with a complete bar and a beach atmosphere so you feel like you’re in Montauk but with a view of the Statue of Liberty. My favourite beauty destination in New York is... Bigelow pharmacy on 8th St and 6th Ave. It hasn’t changed in 30 years and is a quintessential New York pharmacy. I also love Santa Maria Novella in Soho.”
“I have too many Favourite experiences in NYC, one I love was my first time at the Barneys sale. My favourite beauty destination in New York is...The O&M hair salon in West Village. It has my favourite Aussie brand of organic products and a very cool, relaxed vibe and super-talented hair stylists.”

“My favorite New York experience... Was definitely walking in the DKNY show last season alongside other New Yorkers. I am such a big fan of the brand so it was a dream! My favourite beauty destination in New York is... Beautified. I book all my services last minute through Beautified. Right now, I love Haven Spa for their signature massage.”
