A necessary part of a New York summer includes the occasional weekend getaway. Whether its a jaunt on the Jitney or a longer haul to Vegas, every so often you just have to grab a loved one (or two) and GO.
You're determined to leave the big fat suitcase behind and opt for a simple, shoulder-carried duffel bag. But WHAT, from your arsenal of haircare and styling tools and products makes the cut, and which get left behind?
They key to minimalist packing is to prepare beforehand. Swing by YGallery Salon in SoHo on Friday during your lunch break to get the perfect blow-out before your weekend excursion. Then, equip yourself with nothin' but the essentials: a blowdryer, a big round brush, and a trusty, versatile product, like Bumble and bumble.'s Grooming Creme. No matter what weather hits your destination-- be it out-of-control humidity or even the odd raincloud-- you'll have exactly what you need to look your most fabulous.
YGallery Salon Co-Owner Yoni Kreger (in the pic above) says to throw in a quarter-sized amount of the Bb Grooming Creme, even on rain-ruined hair. Then do a quick once-over taking big sections with your blowdryer and brush. You'll recapture your Friday post-salon 'do much easier and faster than if you had to shampoo and blowdry from scratch, he advises. "The Grooming Creme is like an anytime moisturizer that gives subtle hold and a satiny finish," he says.
