Saloon Salon’s diverse clientele ranges from experimenting teens to Manhattan beauty buffs drawn by the spot’s Redken “pilot salon” status. The space features polished-concrete floors, brick walls, fifteen chairs and a rear “color wall” stacked with bottles that resembles a well-stocked bar.Though stylists are adept at cuts and blowouts, the specialties are extensions and meticulous highlights, lowlights, and the occasional head of platinum or fuchsia.Colorists are extensively trained by both salon owner Frank Arcabascio and Redken (the only brand of products used). The staff finesses soft, flattering base-and-highlight jobs in one deft step, employing both brushed-on base color and foil strips.
Our goal is for each client to have beautiful, healthy hair by only using the highest quality products the industry has to offer. As a salon, we believe in offerning the best customer service while simultaneously furthering our education as the art of hair styling continues to grow and change.
