Beauty 411: Rheanne White

-------

RheanneWhite-cropSince the premiere of HBO’s Girls, a great many people have, understandably so, come to care deeply about Lena Dunham—what she says, what she wears, what she posts on Instagram, and, naturally, what she does to her hair. And though the pixie has experienced a major celebrity surge this year (see: Jennifer Lawrence, Pamela Anderson and, briefly, Beyoncé), Dunham’s crop was among the first and, in our opinion, the best. The stylist responsible for the wispy pixie perfection? Rheanne White. And as of this month the longtime freelance stylist, whose handiwork has graced the pages of such magazines as GQ, Vanity Fair, and Marie Claire, is sharing her talent with the masses thanks to the opening of her first eponymous salon (Rheanne White Salon, 14 Jay St., 212-966-2928; rheannewhite.com). Here, White shares some of her own go-to products and places, many of which, it should be pointed out, are a mere stone’s throw from her new Tribeca digs.

THE HAIR STYLING TOOLS: Shu Uemura and Layrite
“I love Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolue Nourishing Oil-in-Cream because it’s so user friendly. It’s great on fine to thick hair with curls and waves, and a quarter-size amount is all you need for shine and control. And Layrite makes the best pomades—they’re all water-soluble. I use the Men’s Layrite Super Hold not just on my male clients, but also on women’s short hair any time I want to give a style that piece-y look.”

THE SHAMPOO DUO: Kérastase and Shu Uemura
“Kérastase K Powder Bluff Dry Shampoo is great for making a good hair day last a little longer. Just spray at the roots to soak up an oily scalp and get that bounce and texture back. And Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy Shampoo is a cure-all for winter hair.”

THE SKINCARE ESSENTIAL: Mun Skin
“Makeup artist Munemi Imai makes the best face oil. I use the No. 1 Aknari Nighttime Dream Youth Serum every day and put any remaining product on my hair.”

THE HOME SCENT: Le Feu De L’Eau
“Le Feu De L’Eau make the most divine candles. I can’t pick a favorite—I burn them all on different days at my salon.”

THE ACCESSORY GURU: Pamela Love
“I love everything she does. I want it all. So badass!”

THE SKIN APPOINTMENT: Diamond Facial at Shibui Spa
“My facialist, Kate Walsh, uses Natura Bissé, an amazing, family-owned skincare line from Barcelona that focuses on gentle-but-effective exfoliation. She also uses muscle manipulation massages to leave the skin plumped, hydrated, and glowing.”

377 Greenwich St., New York, NY, (646) 203-0045; thegreenwichhotel.com/shibui-spa

THE MASSAGE: Euphoria Spa
“They have too many amazing massages to pick just one. It really depends on what you need that day. I’ve had the Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy—a hands-on massage technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into connective tissue restrictions in order to alleviate pain, improve flexibility, restore motion, and create fluidity. Deep-tissue massage is also applied when needed.”

18 Harrison St., New York, NY, (212) 925-5925; euphoriaspanyc.com

THE ONE-STOP-BEAUTY-SHOP: Space.NK Apothecary
“This is my go-to when I’m in need of a new face cream. I love RéVive—worth every penny!”

90 Greene St., New York, NY, (212) 941-4200; us.spacenk.com

THE WORKOUT: Aqua Cycling
“Give this in-water spinning class a try. Trust me—it’s so much fun and gives great results without the post-workout soreness.”

78 Franklin St., New York, NY, (212) 966-6784; aquastudiony.com

THE CAFFEINE SPOT: Laughing Man
“This little gem has some of the best coffee and teas in the ‘hood. We only serve their goods at the salon.”
