For Perfect Hair Volume & BounceWe are quickly approaching the end of the year. Undoubtedly, everyone is gearing up for an unusual holiday season. For the most part, many of us will be holding very small and quiet gatherings, perhaps virtual celebrations will be in place this year. Either way, we still want to look our very best, and nothing says happy festive mood than beautiful revitalize voluminous hair. We turn to hair stylist Valerie Hyams for answers on how to achieve the perfect hair bounce this holiday season. In fact, as a Kérastase ambassador, Valerie showed us how the new Chronologiste line is the hair savior we’ve all been waiting for! Model: Samantha Kumiko Photographer: Riccardo Piazza “I absolutely love the new Chronologiste line. It is one of the most versatile hair care lines I've ever worked with. It is designed to revitalize the hair from scalp to ends. The results are mind blowing bounce, volume and gorgeous shine.” Valerie Hyams, Fabio Scalia Brooklyn HeightsChronologiste by KerastaseWhat makes this collection so special? “The ingredients used are what makes this line a game changer. In fact, Chronologiste is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, and Abyssine.” Can you explain in layman's terms? “Absolutely! Hyaluronic acid moisturizes and hydrates both the scalp and fiber. Next, vitamin E works as a protector from external aggressors. Finally, abyssine is the invigorating agent that regenerates the hair fiber and results in that bounce we all crave”What is your favorite product from the line? “Without a doubt the Pre-Cleanse Regenerant. Because of the charcoal, it purifies the scalp and removes all impurities. Admittedly, amazing hair cannot happen if you don’t pay proper attention to the scalp. It’s the root of everything!” Apply for thermal protection and complete frizz controlFinal ResultsModel: Samantha Kumiko Photographer: Riccardo Piazza Drop a comment below, and book your next appointment by clicking right here. 

In our last blog post we talked about what makes for a successful hair salon visit. A good salon visit leaves you feeling beautiful and reinvigorated. The hair diagnosis is the most crucial step of the salon consultation. Why is a hair diagnosis important? The whole idea behind a hair diagnosis is for the stylist to determine the best course of action to address the current issues you are experiencing with your hair and scalp. At Fabio Scalia salons, our aim is to provide a personalized hair care regimen that is unique to your hair concerns. Is hair diagnosis just another fancy word for a salon consultation? Good question! A hair diagnosis is much more thorough and comprehensive. During a diagnosis the hairdresser will take a closer look at your scalp and hair fiber.Furthermore, it lets the stylist determine what are the most appropriate and beneficial treatments for you, as well as the right products for you to use at home. Photos by Riccardo PiazzaThe Final ResultsHair Styling by Samantha Gradilone in our Brooklyn Heights salonPhoto by Riccardo PiazzaThink about this next time you visit the salon!

Have you ever wondered what designates a successful salon visit? For starters, a good hair stylist will always ask, 'how does the haircut make you feel?' A good hairdo should never feel overpowering or overwhelming. On the contrary, a good haircut makes you feel bold and empowered.In times of COVID, wherein mask wearing has become a prerequisite for stepping outside, the importance of the hairdo as an identifier has soared. We find many clients asking for a haircut that makes them recognizable, even while wearing a face mask. A great example is Anna Wintour and her iconic bob. The hair style has become not only a staple of her unique style but an instant identifier in a social context. "After months of lockdown, I find many of my clients are feeling much more daring and willing to try out new things when they visit the salon"Giuseppe Bicceri, Fabio Scalia SoHoA good hairdresser recognizes the subtle and unique traits in a client. They use these observations as the starting point to create a hairdo that not only looks good but most importantly that feels authentic to the person. Think about this next time you visit the salon!

Fabio Scalia is thrilled to welcome Veigas to our SoHo salon team. Veigas is an incredibly talented hair stylist that has been working in the hair industry for the last ten years. I sat down with her to chat a little bit about all things hair.“As a hair stylist you must not only understand what your client wants, but in order to deliver that you must first gain a clear view of their lifestyle, personality, attitudes, interests, the way they carry themselves. These are all the things I like to find out before creating a look for someone.” For Veigas, being a good listener is a requisite to become a successful hair stylist. She agrees, "the consultation is the most vital part of the hair salon visit."

Time to think about Super short, blunt bobs are one of the season’s hottest hair trends. And one that is destined to keep you relatively cooled and looking very cool. The Story Bobs have ruled the fashion world since their introduction in 1909 in France by Polish-born hairdresser, Antoine de Paris. Whether it’s an A-length, a shoulder grazing or a textured, choppy bob, the bob cut has been in style for over a century and we’re here in full support, now and forever. Why hairdressers love it Bobs are functional and versatile. Also they can be very customizable, depending on the person. When getting a blunt bob, the blunt angle leaves an elegant emphasis on the jawline with a strong, flattering and easiness in styling for the wearer. With simple products, like our Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray or for more fine hair, Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray, you can quickly create simple and perfect summer hair.

And if you aren’t sure what frame you may be categorized as or unsure of the cut - our stylists are here to be honest and comfortable with providing the realistic outcome to achieving this look.But, I mean, have you ever seen a bob on the street and didn’t immediately wish to book a haircut appointment?Book with us today and we promise you’re going to be obsessed with your new hair.

As the years flutter by even faster than the last and we are months away from approaching a new decade, we begin to wonder what trends are to eagerly await us in the coming future years, and what could stay with us for the end of times? The infamously rebel-ish hair style of the pixie has been to rise or fall stagnant within each year, but never falls off the radar of desirable do’s for women all over the world.And we absolutely love that it never fails to be an elegant, polished yet embracing an energetic bad girl look that we’re all secretly (or loudly saying) we want or at least to try at some point in our lives. Am I right, or am I so right?Though chopping all your locks off can be scary and trust us, we know, it can be scary for stylists, too. So, before you book that over-do haircut appointment with the spontaneous determination that this time will the moment you say goodbye to your mane - give yourself some time to really search what sort of pixie would best fit with not only facial framing, but you’re overall realistic lifestyle routines and style.And yes, there is a wide variety of different pixies to pick from!The Side-Swept Pixie                Tight Curl Pixie                        The All-off buzzed cutShaggy Pixie/Fringed Pixie     Super Short Pixie                     Short-Faux Bob Pixie Schedule your appointment with us today in SohoSchedule your appointment with us today in Brooklyn Heights

Maybe brown isn’t doing it just right, or you’re looking to spice up your blonde or black to something that matches the summer season. Whatever it may be, finding the right color isn’t always so easy. But luckily, after New York’s Spring/Summer Fashion Week last September, designers left us fully prepared for the next big trend for clothing and hair: bold, bright neon colors.From Kylie Jenner’s sleek highlighter green bob, Nicole Richie's lavender strand, Cardi B’s bright blue; neon hair is making a scene whether online or on the streets!Just like any hair color - you have to take into consideration which shades will best compliment your skin tone and facial features. Plus, you need to know what sort of hair care products you’ll need to maintain in order to keep the color healthy and vibrant.As our salons transition into the new color brand of L’oreal, we made sure to remain consistent in our abilities to provide constant up to date products and hair services to achieve beautiful, trendy hair for our clients.So, if you’re feeling dangerously curious on what neon green or maybe even adding a little blush of rose gold to your blonde hair and, yes, even to your brown; our colorists are here to get you there!A quick tip for those with darker hair: when considering going for a different color, especially shades like green, blue, pink or even a dusty rose gold, you will have to bleach the hair in order to achieve the bold, rich color. For those with already light or bleached blonde hair, you'll have no worries getting the desired neon color.
