- Good for Teens
Saloon Salon’s diverse clientele ranges from experimenting teens to Manhattan beauty buffs drawn by the spot’s Redken “pilot salon” status. The space features polished-concrete floors, brick walls, fifteen chairs and a rear “color wall” stacked with bottles that resembles a well-stocked bar. Though stylists are adept at cuts and blowouts, the specialties are extensions and meticulous highlights, lowlights, and the occasional head of platinum or fuchsia. Colorists are extensively trained by both salon owner Frank Arcabascio and Redken (the only brand of products used). The staff finesses soft, flattering base-and-highlight jobs in one deft step, employing both brushed-on base color and foil strips.Locks of Love
Saloon participates in the Locks of Love program, a foundation that turns shorn tresses into hairpieces for children with cancer. Saloon cuts donors free of charge, as long as candidates meet the ten-and-a-half-inch minimum length.
