The Hudson Valley and the City of Hudson

In a state where the focus of the world is drawn to the massive metropolis bearing its name, the rest of New York is often forgotten as a vacation destination. But 120 miles north of the metropolis lies the very cool, very walkable, riverside town of Hudson. Perhaps the most beautiful region east of the Rockies, the Hudson Valley opens up in a broad sweep of natural wonder from the Bronx up to Albany. From Hudson (35 miles south of Albany) you can see the river, the Catskill mountains and the Berkshires. You’re two hours from New York City, two and a half hours from Boston and you can get here by Amtrak or via the Thruway (exit 21); or the beautiful, winding Taconic State Parkway east of the river. For even a seasoned traveler, the Hudson Valley will not disappoint; and Hudson is often called “the downtown of upstate”. Hudson’s Warren Street seems like an avenue in a hip part of Brooklyn. 18 Galleries and 51 antique stores...

Why Professionals and Clients Love Pureology

The right hair-coloring product is not only healthier to use, but hair will look more lustrous and feel softer. Not only do over the counter products have harsh chemicals that are absorbed and toxic to the system, but they also strip hair leaving it dull, weak and brittle. Many clients are careful about getting their hair colored by a professional using top-quality products, but neglect their color between salon visits. The products you use to wash and rinse and style your hair are just as important. Harsh chemicals in many store bought shampoos and conditioners can rob you of that just-left-the-salon look you love so much. Pureology is a salon haircare brand made especially for professional hair colorists and their clients. The shampoos have no sulfates and are made with an anti-fade complex to help color-treated hair maintain its vibrancy, even after many uses. Because caring for your color-treated hair shouldn’t stop when you leave the Salon. Here’s what Pureology products can do for your hair: Hydrate Strengthen Volumize...
