  Meet Mellisa Goodwin We met with model and actress Mellisa Goodwin to talk about hair color. Hair pigment changes in the hair are very common. However, we don't speak enough about how common it is for people in their twenties to experience these changes as well. Mellisa's started to notice some hair pigment changes in her hair a few months back. Understandably, the problem became worrisome and made her very anxious. The right way to tackle the problem If you start to notice pigment changes in your hair color, do not panic! It's very common and can have many different reasons behind it. One of the most common reasons is stress, autoimmune diseases or if you are vitamin deficient. We found a great article that explains the most common reasons here! Mellisa used box color dye in order to take care of the problem. This is the wrong way to approach the problem. You always want to go to a professional hair colorist. They are experts in understanding hair pigment changes and how the hair reacts to chemicals. Consult with them before you put anything in your hair. Box color did not give Mellisa the result that she had hoped for. Instead if left her with undesirable color bends in her hair. This is where our color specialist Giulia stepped in to make sure Mellisa would get the hair color she desired. The Process Giulia's first step in the process was to start by removing the pigment from her previous box color dye. Then, she did a single process color which takes care of the base color. After, Giulia followed with a balayage technique aimed at correcting the color bends imprinted by the box color dye. The balayage technique allowed Giulia to break the bends and blend everything nicely together. Finally, Giulia added a gloss to tone it all down and give it a nice shine!

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.

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! Utilizing the right stylist, products and supplements will keep your hair healthy and its appearance voluminous and shiny.

At Fabio Scalia salons, we like to stay current with the latest hair trends. We are committed to perfecting the way people style, wear and live with their hair. For this week's blog post, we turn our attention to the Spring/Summer 2020 collections from New York Fashion Week to spotlight the best new hair trends this season.   Fabio, tell us about your Fashion Week experience this year I had the privilege to join the Kérastase team at New York Fashion week this year. As expected it was very busy but also very inspiring. As an artistic director my creativity thrives in that type of environment. Could you give us a sneak peek of upcoming hair trends?  I observed lots of natural waves that mimicked the natural texture of the hair. My team and I, created many looks with face-framing waves with straight ends. The final look gives off a different feeling compared to the curls that we are used to seeing. In the past months, I've noticed hair accessories such as statement clips, scarves, and headbands are becoming a big hair trend. It's a great way to accent your beautiful hairdo. It also works as a statement piece. 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 adds another layer of movement and dimension to the overall look.  Got it! last question– what is the ‘must-have’ hair 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. In addition to this, the L’incroyable blowdry heat lotion as well as the L'incroyable crème, both by Kerastase are my must-haves. 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.

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.

Model: Valery Kaufman Benjamin Franklin once said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” Summer is just around the corner and whether you crave long beachy waves, a sunkissed balayage, or a short pixie cut, we want to make sure you achieve the look you long for, but in order to get there, you have some planning to do. At Fabio Scalia Salons, we want you to love living with your hair; taking the time to deliver personalized sessions that focus on the hair’s integrity and long-term growth. Meaning, if you are dark today and want to be blonde this summer, you have to plan for it and let’s be real – you won’t be able to lift the color of your hair up so many levels in one single sitting without damaging it. Therefore, it is important to consult with your colorist and stylist and design a plan of action. In addition to setting up a proper hair plan, you should know that maintaining your healthy mane during the spring and summer is no easy task: warmer and dryer climate has a huge impact on the condition of your hair. Just like our skin, our hair also gets sunburned. Most clients know the importance of using SPF during the summer season, but fewer people understand the importance of protecting your hair in the same way. Another way to protect your hair during the high heat and sun is to use accessories. A recent trend for this Spring/Summer we have seen is hair scarfs or wraps, and as hairdressers who value not only the appearance but the condition of hair, we applaud this stylish and effective trend with high recommendation. Summer is the perfect time to play with new styles: save the breakage and nurture your hair in a silk scarf, or even an elaborate hat? Last but not least, never underestimate the importance of a good hydration routine; hydrate, hydrate, hydrate should become this summer's mantra. As to booking consistent in-salon treatments once a month, to maintain the gorgeous locks you desire and to continue daily hair care routines with the right products advised by your trusty stylist.

Because a healthy scalp is the secret to healthy and gorgeous hair. Head Spa is quickly becoming a staple service at many high-end salons. Why? Because the treatment promotes a clean scalp free of buildup by combining scalp cleansing, a relaxing head massage as well as deep conditioning. At Fabio Scalia, we offer this luxurious treatment using Milbon’s Scalp Collection and this week we are very excited to tell you all about it. Milbon has been at the forefront of hair care innovation for years. And when it was time to develop a scalp line they conducted in-depth research that showed that indeed the scalp is the root of all common hair problems. But research also showed that a high percentage of women do nothing to address scalp problems. Thus, neglecting to take care of the scalp properly exacerbates common hair problems such as itchiness, dryness, oiliness, odor, and dandruff. The magic behind Milbon lies in the science of it. Research showed that a high ratio of fatty acids in the scalp sebum is an indicator of an unbalanced scalp. Excess fatty acids in sebum result in scalp that is smelly, sticky and itchy. Furthermore, fatty acids in sebum deter skin cell renewal and result in flaking and dryness.   Sounds familiar? No need to panic! A good head spa treatment will start off by removing the unwanted fatty acids clogging the follicles. For this detoxifying step, we use a purifying gel shampoo, formulated to attach to the fatty acid build up and lift it away from the scalp and hair. The shampoo is followed by a cleansing spa gel, infused with cooling menthol and aromatherapy scents, specially designed to provide deep cleaning and exfoliating of the scalp. By incorporating a deep head massage, the treatment will leave you feeling refreshed (and very relaxed!). Once the buildup has been lifted, the last steps focus on replenishing essential moisture and oil to the scalp. Milbon’s powerful hydrating treatment and leave-in scalp moisturizer serve to soothe, nourish, moisturize and protect the scalp. This head spa treatment offer clients the benefits of detoxifying the scalp, which in turn restores the natural volume and shine of the hair. In addition, the SSVR-Silk™ infused treatment alleviates common hair issues and the soothing head massage leaves your body and mind feeling relaxed and stimulated.
