Beauty and the Beach

Care For Your Hair

Treat your hair this summer

Salt. Heat. Sweat. Gross. The beach puts our hair through a lot. Take care of it with Milbon’s line of products. In 2015, the research lab at Milbon developed a way to analyze hair in 3D, allowing them to see how hollow gaps form in damaged hair. Armed with this information, Milbon, which had already been a salon-favorite since 1965, developed a line of products that ameliorated textural concerns; helps repair severely

damaged and overprocessed hair; and gives shine to dull ’dos.

Chill Out

Is the look complete without a manicure?

The beach is great. Heading to the beach, not so much. Nonstop traffic. No room on the train. Loud seatmates. Chill out before you leave New York and stop by the newly opened Chillhouse on the Lower East Side. The space emphasizes total relaxation, with a nail salon, massage boutique and full-service café and bar. Chillhouse offers a variety of services, from quick nail fixes to elaborately painted designs, in both gel and regular polish.

Get Your Sundaze On

Proper suncare is important


Enjoy the Hamptons sun with Hampton Sun. Everyone knows that proper skincare is important while enjoying the beach, but few people like

applying greasy sunscreen. Channeling the luxury of the Hamptons, Hampton Sun founders Salvatore Piazzola and Grant Wilfley have created a line of sunscreens that both protects and nourishes skin. New for summer 2017, the Hampton Sun SPF 45 Mineral Crème has moisturizing extracts and gentle minerals for all skin types. For more intense protection against the sun’s rays, the Age-Defying SPF 50 Mineral Crème is formulated with antiaging vitamins and antioxidants.

Go Glam

No time to prep for a night out in the Hamptons? No worries


With the humidity, sand and salt, getting ready for a night out at the beach can be a chore. Not anymore. Glam+Go, which specializes in beauty blowouts, is coming to East Hampton this summer with a salon at Elements Fitness Studio. Enjoy blowouts and up-dos. “Boxer braids, the ‘bun & done’ and of course, beach waves…are all popular styles,” says Erika Wasser, CEO and Founder of Glam+Go.
