Yves Durif Salon Expands at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel

March 5, 2012

Upper East Side Landmark to Unveil Beautifully Redesigned Beauty Enclave

This spring the acclaimed Yves Durif Salon at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel will redefine the concept of the modern salon. After an extensive renovation, the salon now boasts a trio of tranquil, intimate spaces that enable guests to enjoy a new level of personalized service and comfort. Under the tutelage of Yves Durif, stylists and colorists collaborate closely to deliver a bespoke approach to hair design. The newly renovated space also includes a Salon Privé, where high-profile guests can enjoy all of the salon's offerings in complete privacy.

Designed by Warren Red, the salon's overall aesthetic draws from The Carlyle's legendary black and white art deco design. Each room has its own unique character. The color lab is cocoon-like and free from the hum of blow dryers, which allows for intimate conversation. The cutting room is bright and airy with high ceilings and impressive acoustics that allow guests to enjoy Durif's extensive and eclectic music library. The Privé is quiet and intimate; separated from the rest of the salon by a sensual metal mesh curtain and adorned by exceptional photography from Yves' personal collection.

In addition to the new decor, visitors will be treated to plant derived, environmentally-friendly products from Phyto and their newly released Subtil hair color line, which includes permanent and demi-permanent colors. Subtil features ultra-low concentrations of ammonia, ensuring a nearly odorless color experience. Durif also offers his clients the best of styling with hair tools from his partnership with Sedu.

Since relocating to The Carlyle in 2008, Yves clientele has continued to grow. Over the years, Yves and his team have garnered a sophisticated following ranging from downtown style-setters to Upper East Side socialites. Durif's passion for his craft is evident in the salon's details: luxe, comfortable surroundings and a synergy between stylist, colorist & makeup artist.
