As tailored suits and menswear-inspired fashion slowly invade our closets, it’s only fitting that we look to 1988 (and the era’s working girls who staked their claim in the boardroom) for the next big hair trends, too. Enter Julien Farel, owner of an eponymous salon in midtown Manhattan. The hair pro, who has worked with influential women like Ivanka Trump, Salma Hayek, and Lauren Bush Lauren, is set to open the first ever power hair salon in early 2014 at the Loews Regency in New York City. Farel and his team will be whipping up no-nonsense, coiffed styles for clients who want to make a commanding impression in the office or at post-work schmooze-fests. While hair spray is most likely required, shoulder pads are completely optional.
Style.com/Print cover girl Cara Delevingne has nabbed another campaign. But if you’re thinking that it’s for a luxury fashion or beauty house, you’re a little off base. Delevingne is the new face of the accessory brand My Crazy Scrunchie—that’s right, scrunchies—for which she stars in a new, western-themed campaign with Clara Pagett and Suki Waterhouse. [Daily Mail]
We’re all for entertainment-inspired beauty collections, but the new, Modern Family x Nicole by OPI nail lacquer range might be taking it a little far. Sure, the ABC comedy is funny, but associating it with a line of polishes is a bit of a stretch. [ET]
More on the developing Drew Barrymore for Wal-Mart story. The Charlie’s Angels star and new mom’s premiere cosmetics collection or the retailer will be called Flower, intends to offer “true luxury at mass,” and will include a whopping 181 products: 70 in the face category, 44 in eye, 51 in lip, and 16 in nail. So much for taking it slow. [WWD]
Ivanka Trump: the fragrance will be on shelves next fall. The bergamot, lush apple, jasmine, rose, peach blossom, vanilla, and cedarwood eau will be “filling a void for that feminine, empowered woman,” according to the heiress. [WWD]
Spa scoop! After months of speculation, the Trump SoHo has finally confirmed that it will unveil its sparkling, 11,000-square-foot spa this month (and most likely in the next few days). Ivanka Trump led the design of the bi-level space, which was inspired by her recent trips through Istanbul and the Middle East and includes nine treatment rooms plus two hammams featuring Turkish and Moroccan services. The Turkish version smoothes the body with oil-based castile soap and eliminates dead skin with the traditional Kessa mitt (be prepared: a truly authentic rubdown is pretty intense), while the Moroccan variety uses the country’s native black soap made from crushed olives and finishes with an application of warmed Ghassoul clay to draw out impurities. The menu also includes plenty of Eastern Ayurvedic touches, like the Shirodhara shampoo, which Trump recommends for “more seasoned or adventurous guests.” During the ancient ritual, a stream of warm herbal-infused oil is poured onto the forehead and then massaged into the scalp, along with herbs to nourish and condition strands. In a bit of a coup, the Trump SoHo is the only hotel spa in New York where luxe facials from superstar skin expert Kate Somerville, whom Trump has been seeing for years, are available. The “Ultimate Kate,” a super-hydrating oxygen treatment that plumps and firms the face, is Ivanka’s personal favorite and can be had for $350.

If you’re wondering what newly hitched power couple Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner did on their wedding night, we’ve got the steamy details: After their nuptials, the pair sparked up Bois Blanc, from Alexa Rodulfo’s new collection of scented candles. Rodulfo, the go-to hair and makeup artist for New York’s social set, gifted it to Trump, who is one of her devoted, longtime clients. “She can’t shake me,” the heiress and real estate mogul-in-her-own-right joked last night from her jewelry boutique on Madison Avenue, where she hosted an intimate gathering to celebrate Rodulfo’s fragrance endeavor. “I’d like to do a makeup line, sure, but candles have always been my passion,” the Mexican-born face painter said. “Perfume and aroma are like blending colors—there’s no limit.” Clients and friends like Lauren Santo Domingo, Amanda Hearst, Fabiola Beracasa, and Zani Gugelmann were also in attendance to fête the three-piece line, which follows Bois d’Alexa, an instant hit with the jet-set crowd when it debuted last year. “It’s like gangbusters—everything is selling out!” Trump said of the candles, which are currently stocked at Aedes de Venustas in New York and Colette in Paris—not to mention all Trump hotels worldwide. “Quality sells, even in this economy,” she added. “People want substance.”
