Julius Michael Scarsdale Hair Salon opened just three weeks ago and has already generated a lot of buzz. We sent Jeanne Muchnick to investigate: “I was really impressed with the design of the salon,” she says, “especially the bathroom, which has one of the coolest waterfall sinks I’ve ever seen.” The 1,047-square-foot salon has flat-screen Google TVs (for watching while your hair dries); a gourmet coffee/cappuccino machine; and only sells Oribe, a high-end hair care line that uses chichi ingredients like mother of pearl and keratin, created by celebrity hair stylist Oribe Canales, Michael’s mentor and former boss.
“I wanted to create a totally new client atmosphere where our guests love hanging out,” says Michael, who specializes in color treatments, keratin straightening, and hair extensions—including the latest trends with feathers. All of his stylists have years of experience, including those who specialize in redheads and blondes.
