Our Staff


I created this company ten years ago with the intent of providing my clients with the very best, from product to services. It’s my love and passion for hair and beauty that helps set my salon from others. My education in both the American Barber Institute and in the American Beauty Institute, as well as my training in NYC salons, provided me the necessary skills to give you exactly what it is that you're looking for. I make sure to employ a team of stylists that are always available to listen, offer advice, and to provide the very best services that Syosset has to offer. "

What Our Clients Say


I started coming here a little after Effie opened up. The salon looks great and the atmosphere is welcoming.
I asked Effie for his opinion of what type of hairstyle suits me and he delivered. His personnel are very friendly and always greet you with smiles.
Great location, great people, and most importantly great service.

I went to this hair salon for a color and cut and to get a wax. Very professional and knowledgeable staff. Nina did my color and hair cut – she definitely knows how to do hair. I love my new color and style. Bella did my waxing. She was gentle and professional. Will definitely recommend to my friends.

I accidentally walked into this place with my girlfriend, because we were invited to a friend’s wedding near by. What can I say… great experience, professional workers, and most importantly my girl was very happy that she looked like a million bucks. Love it.
