Fortunately for anyone who's not an editor, street style superstar, or buyer, Fashion Week deals and freebies are for everyone. While there are many insider-only perks happening in and around Lincoln Center, there are also worthwhile promos for those without hand-addressed invites or media badges.
This season, it's all about hair. After the jump, we've rounded up three perks you can take advantage of this week, from blowouts by Garnier to dip-dye from across the pond.
Garnier Fructis Blow Out Bar & Style Station
Book an appointment at Garnier's pop-up salon on the spot, and choose from a full menu's worth of looks, inculding braids, up-dos, and curly styles. P.S.—everything's complimentary. Celebrity hairstylist Tommy Buckett will make an appearance everyday, and free samples, prizes, and giveaways will be given out.
Friday, February 8 through Saturday, February 9. Daily 12pm—7pm. Time Warner Center, 10 Columbus Circle, 2nd floor.
The promotion at Blow isn't a freebie, but it is a good deal: $15 gets you a NYFW Survival Kit, which includes Faux Dry Dry Shampoo, the Perfect Shower Cap, and the Mini Blow Out Serious Non-Stick Hairspray. Additionally, their pros will offer quick and easy styling services for model-like looks, priced at just $25.
Thursday, February 7 through Thursday, February 14. Call 212-989-6282 to book an appointment. 342 W. 14th Street.
W Luvs BLEACH pop-up salon
Bleach Hair Salon in London is setting up a temporary station in the newly renovated Extreme Wow Suite at the W Hotel. And the options are endless. Guests will be able to choose from several different complimentary dye/styling options, including Pastel Prom Hair (which incorporates rainbow color sprays), a Valentine's Heart Braid, Party Ponytails, a Bleach Blowdry, or something called Crimpy Crush. Spaces are limited though, so email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a spot ASAP.
