Roots This Port Chester salon has a bright and cheery look with a turquoise, orange, and white color scheme. The main fixture, the blowout bar, is where clients can drink, watch movies, chat… oh, and get their hair styled.
Highlights Their special technique to achieve their signature perfect blowout involves setting sections in pins, which provides longevity and bounce.
Cutting Edge The salon is churning out a new style called the Invisible Layer Cut. “It gives the illusion of length because you don’t see where the hair has been cut – just movement,” says owner Stacy Sakellariou. “There are no obvious layers.”
Color Code Sakellariou and her team swear by the color-melting technique. “Color melting is a technique that blends balayage with the base color in the roots of the hair so you don’t have any harsh lines,” she says.
Star Stylist/Colorist “Unlike other blowout-concept salons, the whole team at Beauty Bar & Salon is also trained and educated in styling and coloring,” says Sakellariou. “It’s a total package here.”
Gloss Mondays with Sole Ryeders, a program held at the salon on the first Monday of every month, enables women undergoing cancer treatment to receive complimentary salon services and emotional support.
Heads Up Sakellariou plans to open a second salon by next year, but she hasn’t secured a location yet. She is also going to expand the salon’s on-location event business.
