Memorial Day weekend is the first official marker that we have finally made it through NYC's brutal winter and are well on our way to fun in the sun. But before we get to all the BBQs and rooftop festivities us ladies need to make sure our locks are in tip top shape. From you curly girls to you color addicts, we put together a list of our favorite shampoos that will have you photo ready for the endless stream of Insta-shoots that seem to come standard with every holiday weekend.
WHO IS THIS COOL PEEP: ELEANOR HANDLEY Originally from Melbourne, Australia, I moved to NYC in 2005 after being accepted (and receiving a scholarship) into the MFA program at the New School for Drama in the West Village. Since graduating I've had the chance to perform all over the east coast, including premiering a Chuck Mee off-Broadway rendition of A Christmas Carol, opposite Austin Pendleton and Dominic Chianese (AKA Uncle Jnr from the Sopranos). Other favorite stage performances include Cresidda in the New York Times acclaimed production of Troilus and Cressida for the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival and most recently 'Maggie' in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at the The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival...(where I had the pleasure of meeting the illustrious CC). You may have also seen me on TV include Royal Pains and As the World Turns.

The Affordable Art Fair celebrates the idea that art is for everyone, offering original artwork priced from $100 - $10,000, with half of the work under $5,000. The Fair offers unique programming including a wide variety of artist and curator talks, panel discussions, kids’ activities and more.
