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.

It’s time to get real. We put our hair through a lot: color, sun, heat styling… the list can go on and on. We might be guilty of prematurely thinning our hair without even knowing it. At Fabio Scalia Salons, we focus on the hair’s integrity and long-term growth and we want your hair to live up to its full potential. Therefore, we’ve broken down 4 easy steps to follow for thick, healthy, breathtaking hair. TAKE SUPPLEMENTS It's not just genetics that have it out for your hair. Stress, diet and environmental toxins are all factors proven to compromise the health of your hair. Caring for your strands from the inside out is just as important as what products you’re using. At Fabio Scalia 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. CUT DOWN ON TENSION HEAT STYLING Want beautiful hair? Of course, you do! However, before your hair can be beautiful, it has to be healthy, so try to only use hot tools occasionally. You’ll thank yourself later! Not giving your hair a break from heat can speed up the thinning process and will leave your strands fine and flat in the long run. Also, hairstyles that are too tight will pull your hair at the roots and eventually cause breakage. INVEST IN A SCALP TREATMENT Give your hair some extra TLC, and treat yourself to a scalp treatment every now and then. At our Soho and Brooklyn Heights locations, we offer our clients top treatments from brands such as Oribe, Milbon and Phyto. These treatments penetrate the strands deeply, enhance your color and leave you with not only gorgeous, but also healthy hair. HAVE A HEALTHY AND BALANCED DIET In previous blog posts, we’ve talked of the importance of having a healthy and balanced diet for your hair. Make sure to fill up your kitchen with these nutrients to grow your healthiest hair ever.

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.

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!

Kate Moss for ELLE Argentina It's not hard to fall into the trap. You see one picture of Jane Birkin or Selena Gomez and you immediately think: It's time — I'm getting bangs! Bangs aren’t just an accessory, they are also something that should go well with your facial features, style and personality. Therefore, we recommend all our clients to think one more time before they do the chop. How do you know if it’s time for a cut and most importantly; which type of bangs should you go for? Cutting bangs may seem like a huge commitment, but it doesn’t have to be like that. If you feel unsure, start off with longer ones to make the grow-out phase easier. You definitely want your bangs to be cutting-edge, and that’s why you need to take a few things into consideration. First of all, your facial features. The shape of your face, eyes, eyebrows, and hairline are just a few things that may affect the look of your bangs. A 60’s inspired fringe may be flattering for your face but not to someone else’s. Therefore we always recommend our clients to consult with a hairdresser before cutting it off. Another thing to keep in mind is the hair type. If you have shorter hair, the gap between the bangs and the hair won’t be as dramatic. So if you’re not happy with your style, it’s easier to blend it back in again. If you have hair on the finer or thinner side, bangs may require taking a lot of hair from the back of your head and that might affect the layering of your style. Last, but definitely not least, your bangs have to go well with your lifestyle. Having great bangs is like having a good purse. A classic Chanel looks good with every outfit, but a Bottega Veneta might not be for everyone. Cutting bangs takes a couple of minutes, but months to grow out. Even though this can be a drastic change in your looks, always remember that hair grows back. It’s not a tattoo. Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.

You visit the hair salon for a haircut, but just weeks after your appointment you notice that your ends don’t look good – they are split in two again. Most likely this happened because the scissors your hairdresser used were of lower quality and not well maintained. As a result, your ends were broken instead of properly cut. As one of the best salons in New York City, we personalize sessions that focus on the hair’s integrity and long-term growth. So how can you know if your service is cutting-edge? Don’t worry – we have you covered! Fabio, why are scissors important for a great haircut? – Scissors are important because they allow me, as a hairdresser, to give my clients a haircut with precision. They have to be extremely sharp to achieve the results that we want. My passion for the craftsmanship is what drives me daily and my goal is to provide you with a service that leaves you loving the hair you were born with.Is it true that you don't use clippers for men's cut? – I really try not to unless it’s a skin fade style. With scissors, I can control the technique in a way that a clipper can’t. Do scissors affect the health of hair? – Yes, absolutely. If the hair splits sooner than usual, your hairdresser has probably used the wrong pair of scissors. If you cut your hair with cheap or poorly maintained scissors, you don’t cut the hair – you break the hair. Personally, they are my most important tools and I wouldn’t allow anybody to cut with my scissors. If someone does, I can feel it. It’s comparable to when someone drives your car and moves your seat – it’s not the same.Where do your scissors come from? – I only use Japanese scissors. They are made from the same metal and technique as a samurai sword. In other words, they’re pretty sharp. Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.
