The results are mind blowing bounce, volume and gorgeous shine.” Valerie Hyams, Fabio Scalia Brooklyn HeightsChronologiste by KerastaseWhat makes this collection so special? “The ingredients used are what makes this line a game changer. In fact, Chronologiste is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, and Abyssine.” Can you explain in layman's terms? “Absolutely! Hyaluronic acid moisturizes and hydrates both the scalp and fiber. Next, vitamin E works as a protector from external aggressors. Finally, abyssine is the invigorating agent that regenerates the hair fiber and results in that bounce we all crave”What is your favorite product from the line? “Without a doubt the Pre-Cleanse Regenerant. Because of the charcoal, it purifies the scalp and removes all impurities. Admittedly, amazing hair cannot happen if you don’t pay proper attention to the scalp.

In our last blog post we talked about what makes for a successful hair salon visit. A good salon visit leaves you feeling beautiful and reinvigorated. The hair diagnosis is the most crucial step of the salon consultation. Why is a hair diagnosis important? The whole idea behind a hair diagnosis is for the stylist to determine the best course of action to address the current issues you are experiencing with your hair and scalp. At Fabio Scalia salons, our aim is to provide a personalized hair care regimen that is unique to your hair concerns. Is hair diagnosis just another fancy word for a salon consultation? Good question! A hair diagnosis is much more thorough and comprehensive. During a diagnosis the hairdresser will take a closer look at your scalp and hair fiber.Furthermore, it lets the stylist determine what are the most appropriate and beneficial treatments for you, as well as the right products for you to use at home.

Have you ever wondered what designates a successful salon visit? For starters, a good hair stylist will always ask, 'how does the haircut make you feel?' A good hairdo should never feel overpowering or overwhelming. On the contrary, a good haircut makes you feel bold and empowered.In times of COVID, wherein mask wearing has become a prerequisite for stepping outside, the importance of the hairdo as an identifier has soared. We find many clients asking for a haircut that makes them recognizable, even while wearing a face mask. A great example is Anna Wintour and her iconic bob. The hair style has become not only a staple of her unique style but an instant identifier in a social context. "After months of lockdown, I find many of my clients are feeling much more daring and willing to try out new things when they visit the salon"Giuseppe Bicceri, Fabio Scalia SoHoA good hairdresser recognizes the subtle and unique traits in a client. They use these observations as the starting point to create a hairdo that not only looks good but most importantly that feels authentic to the person. Think about this next time you visit the salon!
