A trend currently being noticed is that blondes are covering their summer highlights. They are yearning for darker roots in the cold fall and winter weather. One model changed from blonde balayage back to darker roots. Many women are simply seeking a change that will accommodate the emotional feeling that sometimes accompany the passing of summer. Darker hair can accentuate your eyes, and may also spark a sense of new pleasure as you embark upon a new season. A gradual, subtle change in color can be addressed Be aware that a sudden, drastic change may not be what you have in mind. Initially, a subtle difference in color would be your best choice, until the desired application is achieved. The colorists at Fabio Scalia Salons in New York specialize in providing the color that is tailored to your liking and will guide you in that direction. So, scheduling a consultation for changing hair to darker roots for colder weather is a vital step that you might want to take. Darker hair seems to be in demand for colder weather Many colorists have observed that their clients are turning away from summer highlights, and changing their hair to darker roots for the colder weather. One reason might be that by the end of the summer season your hair may be bleached out and no longer compliment your complexion. Instead of radiating light (like when on a beach or walking in a park), lighter strands of hair seem to consume light, whereas dark hair tends to bring out luster, glow, and volume in the fall and winter seasons.

Is your hair turning gray? You can help with the transition in numerous subtle ways. It can be an exciting adventure to experiment with many procedures to see what is best suited to your personality and appearance. Just imagine the freedom that is derived from knowing that you may never have to dye your hair again to be attractive! There is a medley of choices that's all the rage which can easily blend in with your natural hair color. We asked our colorists for their best advice and this is what they suggested: “The changeover to gray hair color could be a tough challenge, especially if your hair is long. If a client has dark hair, adding lowlights would be a good option to consider for an easier transition. You would add your base color into the gray hair, so to break the line of demarcation between regrowth and colored hair. A client who is naturally light could stop doing a base color and just do highlights to transition. The process of becoming gray is individual and cannot be the same for all. Therefore, I highly recommend all clients to come in for a consultation. As hair turns gray when we get older, the texture also changes. Embracing not only your grays, but also the new texture, will require looking for a new hairstyle and changing your choice of products”. – Lucio Galano, Color Director, Soho Here are just a few of the most trendy ideas to get you started: Highlights is a process that gradually makes the transition easy so that the changes will not stand out like a “sore thumb.” Mixed Ash Gray Highlights add many hues, like deep brown lowlights, silver, and ash gray. Such a combination is stunning. Lowlights will gently help you ease into the transition. Gray Brown Layered Cut. See how effortlessly the hues blend in to smoothly make the transition and emerge with an attractive, dramatic combination. Gray Blonde Hair. Blending light golden blonde with ash gray hues is one of the most artful techniques that transforms your hair into a style worth admiring. Chunky Silver Highlights is as alluring as it sounds. You will turn heads with this extraordinary explosion of highlights and shadow roots.

Fabio Scalia is thrilled to welcome Veigas to our SoHo salon team. Veigas is an incredibly talented hair stylist that has been working in the hair industry for the last ten years. I sat down with her to chat a little bit about all things hair. “As a hair stylist you must not only understand what your client wants, but in order to deliver that you must first gain a clear view of their lifestyle, personality, attitudes, interests, the way they carry themselves. These are all the things I like to find out before creating a look for someone.”  For Veigas, being a good listener is a requisite to become a successful hair stylist. She agrees, "the consultation is the most vital part of the hair salon visit." It is during consultation that she is able to delve into the world of the client. Her determination and drive is fueled by inspiration. Her own professional experiences have taught her that education feeds inspiration. Thus, Veigas is a strong believer in the power of constant education. She emphasizes that remaining ahead of the curve and on top of trends is what sets apart the top hairstylists from the rest. Veigas is available for bookings in the Fabio Scalia SoHo salon. Located at 311 W Broadway New York, NY To book an appointment call 212-343-0523 or click here to book online. 

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.

Photograph by Tāne Coffin for Byrdie.com  We see them on the runways, streets and beaches – the scarf has never felt more right in time. Thanks to this fashionable trend, your low bun, classic ponytail or any other hairstyle will come out even prettier. In other words, it’s the perfect addition to complete your look this summer. “The hair scarf trend has been adapted by a lot of designers, including Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Fendi. As hairdressers in New York City, staying up to date with trends is our top priority. The scarf can not only be used as an accessory, but also as a tool to help women vary their hairstyles. For instance, if you want to move hair away from the face, you can use it as a headband. Another way to use it could be to camouflage outgrowth if you haven’t done your color in a while.” – Fabio Scalia Besides being a stylish accessory, the scarf also has many benefits on the hair’s health. It protects it from humidity, getting dehydrated, and also from UV radiation. As top hairdressers in New York City, we want your hair to look fabulous not only when you leave the salon, but also in between your appointments. Most people think that achieving a great scarf updo is hard and time consuming. Guess what? It doesn't have to be like that at all.

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!

Miranda Kerr for Red Magazine As spring is approaching, there are plenty of reasons to update your look. The shift in seasons pretty much always brings with it a new hair color trend and as one of the best hair salons in New York City, staying up to date with the latest trends, techniques and color is our top priority. So we decided to ask our colorists Giulia Farella and Patrick Prinzo the question we all want the answer to: Which is the best hair color for a trendy spring look?   “Spring is all about embracing the natural look and it should for sure be one that is easy to maintain. Therefore, face-framing highlights are a great option. They’re quick, they refresh the color and give it new life all in one session. Generally speaking, at springtime blondes wants to go blonder, while brunettes and redheads tend to stay the same as the sun will lighten up the strands anyways. I always recommend my clients to invest in a good hair treatment to keep the hair healthy and shiny through warmer seasons.”   – Patrick Prinzo, Colorist Soho “After a long winter, clients tend to go brighter and funkier with their hair color. In other words, people want a fresh and new look. If my client isn’t quite ready to part with his or her winter hues, I would suggest adding a few highlights to slightly brighten up the look and create more dimension. As a colorist, I always have the final result in mind and a color that may look great on one client, might not fit another one. Trends come and go, but a great style could last forever. My advice would be to consult with your colorist to find a color that fits your skin tone, haircut and style in general.” – Giulia Farella, Colorist Brooklyn Heights Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.
