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.

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!

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." It is during consultation that she is able to delve into the world of the client.Her determination and drive is fueled by inspiration.

Finding the perfect hair color can be anything but easy. At Fabio Scalia salons we love a good hair transformation. Our stylists take pride in staying current, and continually expanding their craft.

Our goal is simple, to provide our clients with a personalized session that focuses on the integrity and long-term improvement of their hair. In other words, we want you to love living with your hair.Color Has the Power to Transform In today's blog post, Brooklyn Height's color expert Giulia Farella gives us a view into one of her client's recent hair transformation and the importance of choosing the right color:The magic starts during the consultation, this is where the client shares her expectations and past experiences with color. At this point, my job is to assess the current state of the hair. For this particular client the strand test confirmed her hair was virgin, which made the process a lot more easy for me. Emma wanted to transform to a medium brown base color that holds and overall natural look. My vision for her was to transform her very dark color into a very soft color. The right hue has the power to soften all of her features and bring out the best in her. Furthermore, I decide in the moment as the appointment moves along, what the necessary steps to achieve that goal. I paint subtle pieces and create my masterpiece. After the appointment is done, I suggest her to come back in 8 weeks to do a gloss. After the service, it is very important to direct clients to the right products to purchase to maintain the color, i.e shampoo, conditioner, conditioning mask.If you'd like to check out some other incredible transformations, check out Giulia's instagram.When you are ready to transform to the hair of your dreams, click here to book your appointment with Giulia today!

With colder temperatures approaching, it’s time to pull out your winter coats, cuddle up with pup on a cold night and prepare for the holidays. Colder weather is synonymous with drying of the skin on the face and body. But many forget that your hair and scalp can also suffer from freezing temperatures. According to the Oxford Online Pharmacy, dehydration from the cold weather and excessive indoor heat can cause brittle hair and a dry scalp, leading to long term damage. Additionally, wearing hats can place stress on hair strands. Thankfully, at Fabio Scalia Salon, your hair salon in Brooklyn Heights and Soho, we have three simple solutions to prevent negative side effects of cold temperatures on your hair. These easy steps can protect the hair and scalp, as well as provide vital nourishment right down to the root.    USE A HIGH-QUALITY HAIR MASQUE  Hair masque (mask) serve as one of the main defenses in combating breakage and split ends caused by cold temperatures. Their purpose is multifaceted, proven to protect and soften both the hair and scalp. At Fabio Scalia Salon, we offer both in-salon and at-home hair masque treatments that revitalize damaged hair and soften the scalp. Some of our hairstylists’ favorite masques (and ones we use on ourselves and clients every day) are from the Kérastase line, available at Fabio Scalia Salon. Kérastase offers a plethora of masques designed for a variety of hair types. The Masquintense Fine Hair Mask works wonders on those with finer hair, while the Masque Magistral is perfectly formulated for those with severely damaged hair. Notably, the Kerastase brand is a leader in providing the highest quality products with the most natural ingredients. The Aura Botanica line is paraben-free and 96 percent of the ingredients are all-natural. The Aura Botanica Baume Miracle (hair balm) nourishes both dry hair, as well as the skin, so it’s a no brainer!   USE HAIR OIL As if the Kerastase brand wasn’t already perfect, their hair oil conditioners are literally out of this world. Le Fondant Conditioner is an ultimate elixir designed for fine to normal hair, so nearly everyone can use it! Its benefits are numerous. Infused with marula, camellia and argan oils, it keeps your hair shiny, nourished and smooth. Le Fondant Conditioner, among other products, is available at Fabio Scalia Salon. Fabio recommends using Le Fondant as a pre-conditioner before jumping in the shower. Simply apply it to wet hair and let the conditioner sit for a few minutes before rinsing. Make sure to comb and distribute the conditioner evenly, as suggested by our expert hairstylists and the Kerastase team.   USE LESS HAIRSPRAY AND MOUSSE As noted earlier, hair can become damaged by excessive cold and heat. Unfortunately, some hair sprays and hair mousses may cause additional damage during colder weather. They can dry both the hair and scalp, leading to dull looking hair and even flaky skin on the scalp, according to Stuart Phillips Holistic Hairdressing. Fabio and our other expert hairstylists recommend using less hair spray and mousses during excessive cold. Kerastase and Oribe offer a wide variety of hair sprays and mousses that protect your hair and allow you to style it perfectly. You can find a wide range of hair sprays and mousses that won’t cause damage to your hair at Fabio Scalia Salon.    Schedule your appointment with us today in Soho Schedule your appointment with us today in Brooklyn Heights Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.

If you want healthy, full and shiny hair, your scalp needs to be free from unnecessary clogging and pollution. In last week’s blog post, our Fabio Scalia salon team talked about The Kérastase Products You Need and Why. In addition to the “must-have” products mentioned last week, Kérastase has developed a new essential in-salon service for healthy and clean manes. The “Fusio Scrub” deeply cleanses the hair and scalp from dirt, grease, and pollution. In other words, it’s your solution against lifeless lengths.  Depending on if your scalp is oily or dry and sensitive, your hairdresser will pick the scrub prescription for you. If you tend to get oily scalp quickly, you would go for the “Scrub Energisant. + recommended hair oil.” It is an energizing sea salt scrub that provides long-lasting results as it deeply cleanses the scalp from dirt and other impurities. If you tend to have a dry and sensitive scalp, then the “Scrub Apaisant” + recommended hair oil would be your pick. This one also cleanses the scalp on a deep level but in contrast to the previous mentioned, this one is relaxing with sweet orange peel with calming and hydrating effects.  The following steps in this in-salon service would be the fusio-dose treatment that will give your hair that extra boost it needs. This, followed by a primer to protect your hair. In order to maintain the long-lasting results, clients are recommended the take-home scrub and use it once a week.  Want a healthy and detoxified scalp?
