Being the best is more than a title, it means walking the talk.

Antonino Salon and Spa takes pride in setting ourselves apart from the rest. With our constant commitment to excellent customer service and our continued desire to learn, we feel confident that we will always provide our guests with unforgettable experiences and the highest quality and most current hair and spa services.

It is because of that desire and commitment that we actually closed the salon for two days to host an in-salon educational event.

On November 13 & 14, 2017, all our stylists were successfully trained by one of Wella’s top Educators, Galin Hristov in an innovative hair-cutting system called Cut Craft. Galin, winner of numerous Wella awards,  successfully shared his passion, creativity, discipline and vast knowledge and experience from two continents with our stylists.

Cut Craft, designed by Wella, is a four-day event that stylists from around the world can attend in Chicago or New York. Anthony Marsalese, owner of Antonino Salon along with the salon’s two Education Directors, Cassie Karawan and Catherine Wallis attended the event in April, 2017. Upon returning, the trio immediately began the process of bringing the experience back home so all the stylists at the salon could be treated to the training.

With an intense two-day version, the seminar focused on the cause and effect of hair-cutting techniques and shapes. Everyone was taught how to achieve the absolute, most perfect looks for their guests, while discovering how to create infinite possibilities showcasing their talent.

By being educated on how to determine the best technique and shapes for their guests, everyone learned how to create with purpose by understanding how to back up their internal instincts with professional methods. Of course, all this while keeping their guests personal style in mind.

The Antonino family has members who just recently graduated beauty school to people with over thirty years of experience, but everyone worked together as a team and learned from one another” said Anthony, adding “this is only the beginning of what we expect to be a long relationship with Wella and Cut Craft”.

Hottest Hair trend-“the Lob

“The Lob (long bob) was a huge trend this summer and it continues to be the hot this Fall. “The beauty of this hairstyle is that with a minor adjustment, the hairstyle becomes customized and flatters all face shapes and hair texture”, says Anthony Marsalese, owner of Antonino Salon and Spa in Birmingham, Michigan.

All of the stylists at Antonino Salon have been trained in the most current haircuts and coloring techniques including the Lob.

A virtual tour of Antonino Salon and Spa, the best salon in Birmingham.

The first half of 2014 has been very exciting at Antonino Salon and Spa and the second half promises to bring even more excitement.

We began the year introducing our wildly popular Blow-Dry “Bundles“. Available in packages of four, eight, twelve and twenty, Blow dry bundles help our guests look and feel their best and save them money too.

We also raised the bar on advanced education requirements for our stylists. With training by the world’s finest hairdresser, Vivienne Mackinder, Antonino stylists completed their first semester; a challenging 17 week hands-on  course specializing in advanced hairdressing techniques. Next up? Another 17 weeks of advanced hair cutting techniques.

Antonino Salon and Spa also underwent a makeover. Six months of planning paid off when in two short days, the salon completely reinvented itself. Now, when guests first enter the salon, they are greeted immediately by one of our concierges at our new Welcome Center. We also created new retail, makeup and skin care centers, refaced our color bar, added new lighting and developed a new layout for our styling stations. You can see our new look by taking a virtual tour of the salon.

Watch for more events in the second half of 2014, including a new software system that will make your visit with us even better. Guests will be able to book appointments, shop and even check out from the comfort of their stylist’s station. You’ll also be able to shop our virtual store and book appointments on-line from anywhere in the world.

In the Fall of 2014, we plan on introducing “Club Antonino”. Members will enjoy many benefits, including complimentary blow-dries and treatments, discounts on hair and skin care products, special pricing on salon and spa services. plus many more monthly surprises.
