With today's endless product options and techniques to choose from, it can be somewhat perplexing as to why it’s important to invest money in hair health. In order to save money in the long run and maintain beautiful, healthy hair for years to come, it’s key to invest in both the right stylist and the right products. At Fabio Scalia, we utilize proven techniques that will help bring your hair back to all its glory.  Your hair is complex Your hair is an important part of your overall image. Understanding the complex components of your hair is something an expert stylist can help you with. Everyone requires different products and styling techniques to maintain optimal health and appearance. No two individuals may be able to perform the same exact hair care routine. Drugstore brands or products with various harmful ingredients may not only be stripping the hair of vital nutrients; they can also cause long term damage by weakening the overall structure of the follicle. This causes hair growth to slow down, as well as dull hair and split ends to show up in its place. Especially during months where we experience colder temperatures. Extreme temperatures weaken the hair structure and lead to a dry, itchy scalp. It’s fundamental to use high-quality products that prevent breakage and keep your hair moisturized. Using the right products Simply using the same shampoo or conditioner as a friend or family member can actually be causing long term damage to your hair. According to the Journal for Investigative Dermatology, “Loss of luster, frizz, split ends, and other hair problems are particularly prevalent among people who repeatedly alter the natural style of their hair or among people with hair that is intrinsically weak” (Sinclair, 2007). Products like Kérastase offer a myriad of products that restore and protect your hair right down to the follicle. We offer products that are ideal for both renewing the look of your hair, as well as rebuilding its structure. Importantly, science notes that using certain hair products is fundamental to improving hair health.    Investing in the right tools In order to understand why spending a little extra cash from the start will help you save lots in the long run, it’s important to know what your hair is comprised of. Hair is made up of a protein called Keratin, also found in our nails and skin, according to L’Oreal Paris. The actual structure of the hair consists of a variety of complex structures, from the hair follicle to the blub, as well as the hair shaft, where your cells reproduce to create more hair (see this link for more info). According to Design Essentials, various hair tools and chemical processes can damage the cuticle layer of the hair. That’s why it’s crucial to invest in both the right stylist and the best products that are ideal for your hair type. Not all products are made with the best ingredients. Your diet, stress level, and various other factors also play a major role in hair growth and appearance. Additionally, taking a daily supplement, such as Nutrafol, sold at Fabio Scalia Salon, can restore hair growth and maintain hair wellness.   "Haircare can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be!

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, we 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 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?

Over the past months, our hair has put up with dehydrating agents such as the sun, chlorine and saltwater. This could have a huge effect on the condition of your hair and scalp and in the worst-case scenario lead to unnecessary hair thinning. There is a shift in season and with it comes a new hair routine. In this week’s blog post, we tell you how to bring your hair back to life.  Condition, condition, condition  If your hair is really dehydrated, we recommend doing 2-3 treatments that fulfill your needs and gives your hair the moisture it needs. In our New York City locations, we offer the very popular Milbon treatments as well as take-home masks from Oribe and Kérastse. Remember, breakage travel inside the cortex which leads us to tip #2. Get a trim  If you want a healthy and thick mane, the scissors are your best friend. Make sure to be consistent with your trims so your split ends won’t work their way up to your strands.  “Waiting too long between your appointments will cause split ends and breakage higher up on the strand. This will result in your stylist needing to give you a shorter style than if you get consistent trims,” says Fabio Scalia. Invest in Nutrafol  At Fabio Scalia, we focus on long-term growth and results. It’s important to have in mind that stress, diet and environmental toxins are all factors proven to compromise the health of your hair. At our salons, we offer our clients Nutrafol, a 100% drug-free supplement to prevent hair thinning. It’s perfect for those who find it hard to cover all vitamins needed for optimal nutrition in their daily diet.

At Fabio Scalia salon we’re committed to perfecting the way people style, wear and live with their hair. The Spring/Summer 2020 collections have been hitting the runways at Fashion Week worldwide and in today’s blog post, we are happy to give you a sneak peek at the season ahead.    Fabio, tell us about your Fashion Week experience this year I had the privilege to join the Kérastase team (more about this next week) at New York Fashion week which was, as always, very busy but yet inspiring.  Could you give us a sneak peek of coming trends?  I saw lots of natural waves mimicking the natural texture of the hair. We created many looks with face-framing waves with straight ends that give a different feeling compared to the curls that we are used to. In the past months, we’ve seen a huge trend in hair accessories such as statement clips, scarves, and headbands. This is a trend that I think we’ll see more of in the future.  How do you style your hair with accessories?  In my opinion, the hair itself is an accessory and adding little extra bling or a scarf could add another layer of movement and dimension to your look.  Got it! Now finally – Do you have any ‘must-haves’ products from fashion week?  One product that I cannot work without is the Kérastase V.I.P Volume in powder. It gives the hair immediate body, volume, and grip. Two additional products are the L’incroyable blowdry heat lotion as well as the crème. These products contain heat-sensitive micro wax technology that allows the hair to set and re-set styles easily. The products also have 450° thermo-protection, which is crucial in order to maintain the integrity of the hair.    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.

And one that is destined to keep you relatively cooled and looking very cool. Since 1909 when a Polish-born hairdresser, Antoine de Paris in France first created the haircut; bobs have ruled in the fashion world. 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. Bobs are functional and versatile, so when choosing the haircut, it can be very customizable. When getting a blunt bob, the bluntness 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 gorgeous wavy hair. The blunt bob can be great for oval, square or heart-shaped face frames, 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 saw 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!

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.
