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. Their vast knowledge and experience allows them to customize services that fit their clients style, life and personality. 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.

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?

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 health 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 wellness routine. In this week’s blog post, we tell you how to bring your hair back to life.  Condition, Condition, Condition  The key to hair wellness is proper conditioning. If your hair is really dehydrated, we recommend doing 2 to 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 Kérastase. Remember, breakage travels inside the cortex which leads us to tip #2. Get regular trims 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. For overall wellness: 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 wellness 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.

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. Versatility of style 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 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!

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.

  As hairstylists we understand better than anyone the problems our clients face during the hot months. As hair professionals it is our job to anticipate our client’s hair needs and prescribe the best solution. That’s why we’ve compiled a short list of the must-have hair products for the season. Whether it’s a normal day to work or a day out on the beach, we’ve got you covered! When Oribe introduced their new line of Power Drops, they changed the hair game for good. What makes the Power Drops so appealing is their lightweight essence. These highly concentrated serums are a perfect way to indulge your hair in rich hydration and deep conditioning without weighing down the hair. The Hydration and Anti-Pollution Power Drops provide powerful protection against free radicals in the environment. Free radicals can be found in the air as pollutants, responsible for compromising the natural integrity of your hair. This powerful solution contain hyaluronic acid which protects the hair from excessive drying by holding onto moisture and creating a barrier that shields the hair from oxidative stress. For our clients who color their hair, we recommend the Color Preservation Power Drops.  This powerful serum is specifically formulated to protect the color from fading and preserves color vibrancy. It delivers antioxidants and amino acids into the hair which shield it from harmful UV rays and radicals in the environment that deplete color.   Another new addition to the Oribe line is the Priming Lotion Leave-In Conditioning Detangler. This product is quickly becoming a fan favorite and a daily staple for clients with curly hair who are thirsty for all-day lasting hydration. This leave-in cream is formulated with a powerful butter complex, rich in vitamins, that repair, hydrate and prevent damage. Last but certainly not least, the undefeated summer essential: Oribe’s Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray. This finishing spray is the ultimate shield against humidity and frizz in any climate.
