Pink Thing Of The Day: Pink Hair Color Ad on Storefront

Back in 2020, a Sally Beauty supply store moved into a brand new storefront on East 14th Street between B and C just in time for Covid to lock the city down. Talk about bad timing. Fortunately, and probably because it is part of a chain, the store reopened mid-summer and seems to be doing well ever since.

While I purchase the Pink Hair Dye I have used for decades online, it is reassuring to know that Sally Beauty also sells my color, and then some.

Pink Thing of The Day: Abandoned Pink Child’s Play Stroller

For reasons that are a mystery to me, the southeast corner of First Avenue and 14th Street has become a dumping ground for assorted household garbage just recently. It’s beyond disgusting. Come on people; have a little pride in your city and refrain from dumping your garbage on the sidewalk. Every apartment building in the city has assigned bins for refuse disposal. You don’t need to strew your shit on the corner of a busy intersection. Losers.

As an example though of something that was probably abandoned on the spot,  with little malice of forethought (though with a serious lack of personal responsibility), I recently noticed a discarded Play Stroller that was Pink enough to make make whip out my phone and document its sad demise. They could have at least tried to haul it to a trash bin.

The figurative work was informed by its 14th Street location which, for many, has come to serve as a delineation point between uptown and downtown.

Well, New York City really has it all, oh yeah. And by “all,” I’m including a Pop Up, or in this case Pup Up Grooming Salon, sponsored by Klarna. The Pup-Up — which was open from October 31st to November 2nd — allowed dog owners and their dogs to get matching makeovers together.

As part of its Spring/Summer 2019 line, Dior has partnered with artist KAWS (aka Brian Donnelly) to use a signature Dior Pink version of the iconic BFF figure in a variety of store promotions and campaigns. I spotted this guy — who is about 8-feet tall, suited up in a sharp Dior suit, with hands, shoes and head made from tufts of pink roses (which are actually paper facsimiles) — in the front window of the Dior shop at the corner of West 14th Street and 9th Avenue in NYC’s Meatpacking District.
