Roots Nick Trombetta describes Salon Maffei’s new location as “modern meets Art Deco.” The salon (which is housed in a building that was built in 1940) boasts 23-foot-high ceilings, a cathedral-style chandelier, and the staff of 21 dresses entirely in black, creating a sleek (and chic) ambience.
Highlights Trombetta specializes in bringing clients’ natural or intended hair color back to where they wanted it with color correction.
Cutting Edge “Since hairstyles are trending toward longer and bigger looks, I maximize movement and volume by texturizing on dry hair,” says Trombetta.
Color Code Trombetta helped create a unique hair-color painting technique he refers to as “bali-lights,” which combines color-weaving, color-painting, and ombre effects.
Star Stylist/Colorist “We have an intense artistic team of stylists and colorists," says Trombetta. "Their willingness to learn, to participate, and to share is incredible. They keep me on my toes!"
Gloss Complimentary consultations are provided for all hair services. The salon also works (in a private setting) with clients who have experienced hair loss due to cancer to reclaim their look and self-confidence by helping them choose wig styles that best suit their face shape and their coloring.
Heads Up The salon just added a service called “eyebrow microblading,” a new tattoo technique that fills out brows or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs.
