You haven’t washed your hair in the right way In order to receive a blow out that lasts for several days, your hair needs to be extremely clean. By that, we mean shampooing twice; the first time shampooing you are getting rid of any loose dirt and/or old product in which the shampoo will not produce much lather; the second time will produce much more lather because you are starting with a cleaner scalp. Keep in mind to massage your hair at the roots to give your scalp that extra boost it needs. You shower without a shower cap Showers are great, but moisture and humidity are not when you want to extend the life of your blowout. Tuck all of your hair into a terry cloth-lined shower cap (or any material cap should work) before showering and your blowout will stay preserved once you get out. You go to sleep with your hair down To prevent losing the volume you fought so badly for, put your hair upside down and gather your hair into a loose bun on top of your head before going to sleep. When you wake up the next day,  brush your hair gently and add some product to it, which reminds me- speaking of products. You are using the wrong products So you managed to achieve that amazing hairstyle you’ve always dreamt of. Now what? A good finishing spray with the right amount of texture will make your style look amazing for days. Styling should be easy and with the right hair products, with the right amount, and yes a little bit of dedicated time, you can get the results you wish for. You’re using the wrong brush If you’re looking for a voluminous, bouncy and glamorous look, a round brush should be your best pick. Today there are endless amounts of brushes, bristles, and materials that you left wondering what’s for what. Styling should not be at the expense of your scalp or your manes’ health. At Fabio Scalia Salon, we offer brushes of the highest quality from Italy created to help clients maintain the integrity of the hair while at the same time adding shine to the strands. These brushes also allow you to maintain your hair color better. Get yours in the salon today!

No backcombing, no weaving, just blowdrying. At Fabio Scalia Salons, the team always keeps its finger on the pulse of current trends and new techniques. Colorists often performing popular techniques of foil, balayage and all over, but today we are discussing a new and trending technique; highlighting the hair with only a board and a blow dryer. In today's blog post, Soho colorist Claudia DeCicco guides us through the process of getting the color you’ve always dreamt of. “The first step is to section the hair into five quadrants. From there I take sections, slice them and put the blow dryer to the strands to remove baby hairs. To make it easier, I clip the tiny hairs down and once my section is ready, I hold a paddle underneath it with the foil and simply brush on the color. I let the color process until the hair has lifted to the desired look and then simply rinse. Depending on the client’s hair, I would add a gloss and root smudge if necessary.” “Most people think that foils leave a brighter but also sometimes ‘stripy’ result and that’s why a lot of people are preferring balayage because they want a more sunkissed and natural looking outcome. However, with this new technique, you get the lift and brightness. In other words, you don’t have to choose between being bright enough and natural looking. In addition, it’s great if you want a long lasting result that looks amazing in between your visits to the salon.” – Claudia DeCicco   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.

There’s no better feeling than leaving the salon with new and fresh hair extensions. At Fabio Scalia Salon in New York City, we offer Great Lengths – the most luxurious extensions on the market, made from ethically sourced, fully traceable non-chemically treated human hair. Knowing how to take care of your new strands can be confusing but no need to panic! In this week’s blog post, our stylist Luis Miller explains how to take care of your extensions properly in between salon visits. Luis, in a previous blog post we’ve touched the topic of taking care of your extensions. What is your tip for clients who just had them done? Clients who have never had extensions before tend to have this idea that the upkeep of hair extensions is very hard and tedious work, however, that is far from true. What I tell all my new clients is that the key to maintaining beautiful extensions is brushing! You have to brush your hair extensions daily, twice a day if needed. Always brush your extensions when they are dry, section by section, with movements away from the bond. Before and after by Luis Miller What about products? Should you use specific ones for the extensions? I would suggest investing in a good quality paddle brush, other than that some dry shampoo or dry spray will take you a long way. Avoid using greasy products. Got it! How often are you supposed to wash your hair with them in? Continue washing your hair as you normally would. Two or three times a week is good, just remember not to apply direct heat to the bond when you are blow drying and styling your hair. Other than that just have fun with them.

  The holidays are here. This is without a doubt the most joyful time of the year, but it can also be the most stressful time. Trying to get everything in order before the end of the year leaves little to no time to find the perfect gift for your partner, friend, or parent. But no need to panic! The amazing team at Fabio Scalia break it down for you and offer you their input on the perfect gifts this season.   Fabio Scalia, artistic director: For me, styling shouldn’t be at the expense of your hair and scalp’s health. Therefore, I would recommend one of our Fabio Scalia brushes. By using tools like this, you can massage and add shine to the strands at the same time. I believe that this also allows you to maintain your hair color better. If you want a long-term result and healthy hair, a good brush is definitely a well worth the investment. I dare to say that our brushes get better with time. Claudia, colorist at SoHo: My favorite product is Oribe’s Glaze for Beautiful Color, the reason why I love this product for my clients is that it gives the same hair shine and sealing effect a clear gloss would at the salon. Let’s be real who doesn’t love how shiny their hair is after color! Lucio, color director at SoHo: Oribe’s Power Drops are game changers. They come in three options Damage Repair, Color Preservation & Hydration Anti-Pollution

We have seen them on celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Ciara – faux bangs have been making their rounds in celebrity circles over the past year. Yes, you read it right. You can absolutely fake your fringe these days and it’s perfect for those who want to try the style without having to chop their actual hair. In this week’s blog post, stylist Luis Miller guides you through the process of wearing faux bangs like a pro. First, you want to start off by smoothing out the hair and tying it up in a high ponytail. Depending on the density of your hair you may want to split the ponytail in two pieces and pull the front piece forward over your head to create faux bangs. You want to drape them over your forehead and fan them out in a triangular shape. Ideally, your hair should reach past your eyebrows. Next, you want to secure your bangs by pinning them down using bobby pins at the base of the ponytail. Section what is remaining of your ponytail in two pieces and twist them around to create your bun and hide the bobby pins.  Finally, you can go over your new faux bangs with a flat iron, smooth them out and give them a bend at the bottom to give them an enhanced natural feel. Add texture to the bangs by using a dry shampoo or texturizing spray. – Luis Miller 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.

The holiday season is just around the corner and with it comes the 3 F’s: Family, Food and Festivities. In busy times like this, easy and chic hairstyles come in handy. In this week’s blog post, Fabio Scalia explains how to get the perfect ponytail for the holidays. You might think that nailing a ponytail is easy but depending on how you do it, the results can vary a lot. The placement of the ponytail is a game changer for the outcome. Some people tend to love it high, others low and so on. According to Fabio, the first step is to determine the current state of your hair. Is it too soft? Does it need more texture? Or volume? Moving forward, Fabio suggests splitting the ponytail into two parts: one section from the ears to the top of the crown and the other one in the back. “I would start by ponytailing the back first with a grooming brush. To achieve the look you want, you need to tilt your hair so it falls in the direction as you wish to have your ponytail. Meaning, if you want it very high, you might have to flip your head over in order for gravity to make the process easier.” "If you want your look to be sleek, I recommend blow drying your hair in the direction as you want it. Sometimes our roots can be our worst enemy so to master this style, you might have to begin when the hair is wet." One common mistake lots of people are guilty of is putting too much hairspray. Try sticking to only use it to set your finished look. If you want your finish to be more “imperfect” you could add a dry texturizing spray and go in with your fingers to make it more “fuzzy.” You want to be able to master a ponytail. It is a chic, comfortable and perfect for a holiday party with family and friends.

Did you know that every two minutes a woman in the U.S is diagnosed with breast cancer? Over 40 000 American women and men die from breast cancer each year. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is dedicated to ending breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. Women with early-stage breast cancer now have a 99% chance of 5-year survival. At Fabio Scalia Salon, we are incredibly proud to support the battle against breast cancer. For the remaining days of October, we will host a raffle in our two locations. By purchasing a raffle ticket you will not only support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation efforts, but you also get a chance to win an amazing basket filled with goodies including our favorite hair products, generously provided by Label.m, Oribe, and Nutrafol. There are more than 3.5 million survivors in the U.S today and together we can make that number higher.   Together, we can be the end of breast cancer.

Our manes have put up with saltwater, the sun and other dehydrating agents over the past months. This could, in the worst case scenario, lead to hair loss. But no need to freak out – in this week’s blog post, we tell you how to prevent it! A lot of people tend to think that damage on the hair only exists at the ends, but that is not the case. The change in season is a stress which causes dysfunctions on the scalp and can, eventually, lead to hair loss. When it comes to temporary hair loss, the problem is that there is no quick replacement of hair in the follicle as usual. Therefore, we have periods over the year that our hair feels thinner. In those times it’s super important to have a healthy diet and fill up with vitamin c, d, e, and of course biotin. All of those power ingredients can be found in Nutrafol, a supplement available in our salons. In addition to filling up with healthy nutrients, you should also invest in a deep conditioning treatment now and then. How often? If your hair is really dehydrated, I’d recommend 2-3 treatments that fulfill your needs. In our New York City locations, we offer the very popular milbon treatments as well as take-home masks from Oribe and Label.m. Remember, breakage travel inside the cortex so make sure to get rid of the dead ends as well. One thing I cannot stress enough about is to use products for your specific hair type. How you take care of your strands in between your visits to the salon is so important and you want your results to last as long as possible. A Fabio Scalia Salon we’d be happy to prescribe you with products customized for you.   Schedule your consultation with us today in Soho Schedule your consultation with us today in Brooklyn Heights Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.

Image Source: Olivia Culpo  Khloe Kardashian, Olivia Culpo and Margot Robbie are three of many celebrities rocking the trendiest haircut of the season: the lob haircut. The name is a simple merge from the two words long & bob (whereas the length of the hair usually falls between your collarbone and your chin). In this week’s blog post, our Soho Stylist Nordia McIntosh guides you through the trendiest chop of the season. Like mentioned in our previous blog post “How To: Transition Your Hair From Summer to Fall”, we’ve reached the time for transformation. If you’re looking for an easy and manageable haircut the lob is for you. It’s not only a great way to achieve fullness and volume, but also a way to get rid of dry summer ends. Chopping off your lengths might seem like a bold change but the lob still feels very feminine which I believe is a reason to why it has become so popular. A lob can be curly, textured, sleek, beachy
