With spring around the corner, our manes are in desperate need of a reboot. But improving the condition of your hair is many times easier said than done. Therefore, we have listed 3 detoxifying products to reset your hair and give it that extra shine and strength it needs. Milbon Scalp Treatment Whether your hair is dry and flat, your scalp oily, itchy or flaky, a Milbon scalp treatment is something we recommend all our clients to do. This will reset the scalp and help it replenish essential oils and moisture. In addition, the Japanese treatment increases natural shine as well as fullness and makes you leave the salon with hair you’ve only dreamt of before. While this treatment is done in-salon, we highly recommend boosting your strands with take-home masks as well. Oribe Clarifying Shampoo & Conditioner With volcanic ash powers this detoxifying mousse, which polishes away dirt, oil, and product buildup, your hair gets restored, with a new inner glow. Important to remember is that if you’ve recently had your color done, a clarifying shampoo & conditioner could make it fade quicker and we wouldn’t want that to happen! Label.m Diamond Dust Series Free from sulfates and parabens, the label.m Diamond Dust series comes in shampoo and conditioner, as well as a leave-in creme. It was developed to deliver ultimate nourishment while transforming your hair into beautiful, smooth and shiny hair.

On February 28, 1909, the first-ever National Women’s Day was celebrated in a way to honor women in the garment industry and to protest against the poor working conditions. In 1975, the United Nations (UN) officially marked March 8 an official holiday to celebrate and recognize the significance of women’s rights and world peace. It has been a day to empower all who identify as a woman, as well as addressing the political, social and economic challenges that have been faced throughout history. It is truly amazing to realize that only for 74 years - the UN signing an international agreement in 1945 to affirm principle in equalizing men and women - helping to create a continuous legacy of “internationally-agreed strategies, standards, programmes and goals to advance the status of women worldwide” (UN, 2019). And since, the progression of equality for all, and especially women, have and will continue to raise more questions and more strides in achieving that safe, powerful and equal world we all strive for in society. At Fabio Scalia Salon, we strive to cultivate a workplace culture that celebrates diversity, equality, and respect. As a place of comfort and supporting the health and beauty of all our wonderful clients, our salons are happy to celebrate this important holiday. Please join us this Friday and Saturday for special treats and complimentary mimosa in both the Brooklyn Heights and Soho salons, and let us together feel the dynamic of such a holiday in honoring women in our city and around the world.

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.

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.

Hair by Luis Miller It’s the shift in seasons and whether we like it or not, it has a huge impact on the condition of our hair. 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.

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
Courtesy of Calvin Klein Whether we like it or not, we’ve reached the end of summer. It’s the time of the year when fashionistas all over the world come together to observe new trends and inspirations. Fall is like new years for the hair and fashion week is the party that sets it off. But the end of summer is also when your hair is in the worst stage of the year. No need to freak out – we’re here to help you! It’s the end of August and your hair is probably dehydrated, frizzy and in desperate need of a haircut. Your hair has most likely been exposed to extreme UV-radiation that caused damage to your strands. Especially if you’ve spent the last couple of months swimming. You see, saltwater and chlorine work as dehydrating agents and in combination with the sun, it can cause some serious damage to your hair. A lot of people think that getting blonder during summer is a blessing, but what you have to realize is that the damage from the sun can be much more intense than a highlight service. In addition to this, your pH is probably out of balance and needs to be reset. So what can you do to reset your hair and get it back to being healthy again? First of all, a salon visit is usually in order so that we can reevaluate the condition of your hair before performing any type of service. In some cases, we have to trim the hair before we can go on with color – it all depends on the current condition of your mane. However, one thing almost all clients have in common after a hot and sunny summer is that they need to hydrate the strands. We recommend doing a deep conditioning treatment every month to rebuild the moisture and strength. Also, you would need to evaluate your product situation at home and might have to switch up a few things. It’s comparable to a diet: in order to see continued results you may need to make a few changes. So that being said, as fall is approaching follow these steps for beautiful and healthy hair: Schedule your consultation ↓ Reevaluate the condition of your hair ↓ Get rid off dead ends ↓ Step up your product game ↓ Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate Ready?
