Bangs are back and more versatile than ever! And that means there is a style that suits everyone, no matter your hair’s  length or texture. But, we know it can get confusing quickly when looking at all the different styles to choose from. We’re here to make it easier – simply check out these inspiration photos to show to your stylist at your next haircut appointment. Blunt This is the traditional and classic hairstyle that birthed the bang trend! Blunt bangs are an exciting way to spruce up a classic hairstyle, such as a short bob. You can even cut these bangs with some face framing layers if you have longer hair to give a doll appearance.  Wispy Wispy bangs are pretty much the straight-up opposite of traditional blunt bangs – and because they are less of an in-your-face statement, they are a great option if you’ve never had bangs before and are just looking to try them out. They’re on the longer and thinner side, so if you decide you don’t want to style the bangs one day, you can push them to the side and they will blend effortlessly with the rest of your hair because not as much of your hair is cut to form the bangs.  Curtain The show must go on, and the Curtain Bangs hairstyle, which made its debut in late 2021 is far from being washed up! This relaxed hairstyle is parted in the middle and then drapes your face as a way to naturally compliment it. The hair is shortest on the inner part towards your forehead, and waterfalls longer to blend into your natural hair length.  Baby Baby bangs originated in the alternative scene, but have made their way into mainstream culture because they are  flattering and easy to style. Not to mention, baby bangs are practical, because, hence the name, their short length prevents any blocking of  your eyesight like longer bangs may do. If you like edgier hairstyles and want to accentuate your eyes, baby bangs should definitely be on your agenda! Side Another classic bang style, that has been around for ages, is a side-swept bang. These bangs are longer pieces–created where you part your hair deep on the side that areparted to go across your forehead to the other side. The good news is that this haircut suits almost all hair lengths and textures, so you don’t have to worry about the logistics of it all (leave that to your hairstylist!).  Curly Curly hair is beautiful; why not accentuate it with having some curls in the front to frame your face? Chopping some wavy or curly bangs can often give the appearance of a shag, which is perfect because that ’80s laid-back look is all the rage!  Hopefully these inspirational images, along with a description of what each style of bangs looks like, will help you make an easier bangs choice the next time you’re in the salon. Our professional hairstylists at Fabio Scalia Salon will always take your face shape and personal style into consideration when cutting your bangs, so even though you have a point of reference from these images, it’s always a great idea to be open to having your own version of bangs to suit you the best.

  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!

Does your rinsing routine make a difference on your hair’s condition? Spoiler alert: it does! Truth is, rinsing your hair correctly can save your strands a lot of damage. In this week’s blog post, Fabio Scalia explains the importance of having a great routine. Fabio, why is rinsing your hair after a swim in the water so important? – Most people know that the sun is very damaging for the hair but fewer people know that chlorine and saltwater can be even worse. Saltwater and chlorine work as dehydrating agents and in combination with the sun, it can cause some serious damage to your hair. So if you can rinse it out immediately after you take a swim, it will make a significant difference on the health of your hair. Also, your color is more likely to last longer. In what ways does it affect your hair color? – Most people are aware that when salt is on your body, it tends to tan faster. Same goes with hair and saltwater. Therefore, it’s important to rinse your strands after a dip in the ocean if you want to maintain the color, shine and health of your hair. What else can be done to maintain the hair color? – If you want your hair color to last longer, I suggest you end every shower with a cold water rinse. Besides from being a very effective wake-up call, it’s a great way to give your mane that extra boost. It’s beneficial for your scalp as it improves blood circulation and it will make your hair shinier. Any final tips or tricks? – A beach trip is a perfect opportunity to apply product to the hair to give it that extra boost it needs during summer. So ideally, you would rinse your hair after a swim, apply deep conditioning product and let it sit throughout the day for best possible results.

Jennifer Aniston by Alexei Hay for Elle Magazine It used to be that when you reached a certain age you were destined for your mother's haircut. But is there such thing as an age appropriate haircut? In this week’s blog post, Fabio Scalia explains if the relation between the length of your hair and your age in number should matter. “I’m not a believer that women should shorten their hair to correspond with the number of birthdays they’ve celebrated. Your age shouldn’t be associated with the length of your hair. It’s more about your look and how you carry it. Sure, when you see a 50+ woman with hair down to her waist, all you see is probably very long hair. But it would also be very long on a young teenage girl. Instead of thinking whether your haircut is age appropriate or not, you should instead think if it’s look appropriate. Does your haircut go well with your facial features? With your personal style? With your career? There’s where I’d put my focus. A haircut is, however, a way to play with trends and a great style can make you feel up to date and current. As your hair ages, the texture, color and quality may change and those factors should be taken into consideration when cutting and coloring your hair. You can wear a beautiful dress, but if you feel uncomfortable with it, you will look ridiculous. Same goes with hair. That’s why my final suggestion is to consult with your stylist to come up with a style that will make you look and feel like the best version of yourself! Is your haircut appropriate for your look?

We’re welcoming the warmer season with open arms. But let’s be honest; Our hair couldn’t be less excited about the arrival of warmer temperatures. In this week’s blog post, Fabio Scalia covers the two hair products that are sure to become your summer saviors this year. “The first product I’d recommend all my clients to invest in for summer is the Leave-In Conditioner from label.m. It’s an aloe vera based product that smoothes and strengthens all hair types. It helps fighting frizz and hydrates the strands at the same time (in summer times hydration is key for a healthy mane.) You apply a small amount to freshly shampooed hair, and massage it towards the ends for added control. Comb through and style as desired. This is also a great product to bring to the beach as you can apply it right after a swim. Another summer savior is the Mystify Restyling Spray from Oribe which prolongs your style while protecting your strands at the same time. This hydrating spray reactivates yesterday’s products to restyle while nourishing, strengthening and shielding against thermal damage. It’s a great product to have in your purse to give your style a boost. It also works as a heat protector which makes it a must-have for warmer temperatures. “ – Fabio Scalia 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.

  Style by Giuseppe Bicceri for Fabio Scalia Salon The guest list has been secured, dress chosen and venue picked out. With wedding season waiting around the corner, you probably still have many decisions to make before the big day. At Fabio Scalia Salon, we want to help you decide on the final crowning detail of your look – yes, we’re talking about the hairstyle. From chignons to loose curls – brides have endless styling opportunities for the big day and picking only one can be hard. Therefore, we want to help you to be loyal to yourself and find your perfect match. “A wedding is such a big moment and a day many women have been dreaming about since they were little girls. It doesn't matter how many gowns, updos or make-up looks you’ve seen in the past – a wedding is highly personal and so should the look of the bride be. It’s important to always have the entire look in mind. I like to think about the bride as 100%, so if the dress is already 80%, you would have to go for a more simple hairdo to create a balance. “                                                                                                                         – Giuseppe Bicceri   We’re happy to introduce the series “A Dose of I Do” – a tool for all the brides-to-be to get inspired by and learn from. As hairdressers, we have to make sure that the bride looks good from the first look to the cake picture, and the 15 hours in between.   See the trailer here:   - Stay tuned on social media - Follow us on Instagram here Follow us on Facebook here  

Julianne Hough Dull skin and eyes are two side effects of picking the wrong hair color for your face. But finding your perfect match can be anything but easy. Truth is, it’s so much more than picking a trendy tone or a color that you like. It has to go well with your entire look and if it does – it will make your skin glow and your eyes stand out. In today's blog post, our colorist Giuseppe Bicceri explains the importance of picking the right color for your specific look… “It’s not only about what the client wants or what she likes, it has go well with her lifestyle. I want to ensure my clients that they will look good until their next appointment. Therefore, I usually start a consultation with the question: How often are you willing to come to fix your color? For instance, if a client is going away for a trip, I have to find a color that matches her skin tone, complexion and looks good every day until she comes in for her next visit. What usually happens in the summer is that the skin tone and lifestyle changes, so you can not do the same color for every season. A hair color is highly personal and will change for everyone. I believe that everyone can have red hair– you just have to find the perfect shade for you. As hairdressers, we customize our services to deliver personalized results and I love that about my job.” – Giuseppe Bicceri, Fabio Scalia Soho Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.

Vanessa Hudgens by Jeff Lipsky for Women's Health   Is there such thing as beauty sleep? Does your workout routine affect your strands? Can sleep deprivation cause hair loss? In this week’s blog post, Fabio reveals the healthy habits in our everyday life that have a huge impact on your hair and its health.   Rinse your hair with cold water Finishing every shower with an ice cold rinse doesn’t seem that compelling. But the benefits are great. By finishing your shower with a cold rinse, you close the pores, stimulate your blood circulation and reset the skin and scalp. Also, this will make your color last longer! Meditate on a daily basis Meditation is a natural medication proven to have relaxing effects on our bodies, and the scalp and hair are no exception. Excessive stress can lead to hair loss, dandruff and itchy and oily scalp. A daily practice of meditation can help to reset your stress levels. Make sure to get enough sleep Speaking of stress: sleep deprivation is a form of stress and by now we know that stress may have great effect on hair loss. As we are sleeping, the skin, scalp and hair regain their strength again. In other words – sleep allows all parts of our bodies to function better. Exercise on a regular basis When we exercise we also sweat. Through sweat, toxins and other waste substances get rinsed out from the skin’s pores, giving us fresh and glowy skin. Likewise, when we sweat from our scalp, it helps to unclog the hair follicles, which gives room for new hair to grow. However, excessive exercise can have the opposite effect as it’s a way of stressing your body. Control your diet In a previous blog post, we have talked about 10 nutrients that are beneficial for your hair. Your hair will benefit significantly from a balanced diet. However, if you find it difficult to cover all vitamins needed for optimal nutrition, adding Nutrafol, a 100% drug free dietary supplement, to your daily routine could make a huge difference. Get yours in the salon today! Massage your body (and scalp!) A body or foot massage increases blood circulation in our bodies. This allows the hair follicles to receive all of the oxygen, nutrients and minerals that they need to grow. When it comes to scalp massage, it’s important to be gentle. Too much or a too aggressive scalp massage stimulates the sebaceous glands and as a result, more sebum is produced. Instead, aim for gentle movements clockwise and counterclockwise – and no nails!
