Previously only available in Europe, the revolutionary hair treatment, “System Professional” has arrived in Michigan and has made it’s debut at Antonino Salon & Spa in downtown Birmingham.

“This treatment literally re-builds the hair from the inside and will leave your hair feeling reborn”, says Anthony Marsalese, owner of Antonino Salon & Spa, adding “System Professional believes each guest’s hair is as unique as their fingerprints, so each of their exclusive treatments begins with an individual “energycode; a code that can only be diagnosed by certified stylists”. Fortunately, all of the stylists at Antonino Salon have gone through an extensive training and are ready to help guests discover their very own energycode.

Antonino Salon and Spa first introduced “Mirror-Mirror”, an innovative and creative video last Summer. The video, designed by Anthony Marsalese and filmed by FYT Productions, features normal people getting ready for their day by prepping in the mirror. “The uniqueness of this video is the camera is the mirror”, says Anthony “and so far it’s a hit”. With hair by Anthony, Catherine Wallis and Laura Kubaki and makeup by Todd’s Room, the video has made a huge statement along Townsend Street, where it is played 24/7 on oversized television monitors in the salon’s windows.

On November 7, the hair design team of Anthony, Catherine and Monique Vanderkerkhof, the makeup team Todd Scogg and Raquel of Todd’s Room and clothing design by Lyudviga Shneyder of Lyudviga Couture Design, met to create Mirror-Mirror Two.

Following the same idea, this shoot still shows people getting ready in the mirror, but for a more “glamorous” evening out.

Look for the second video to appear soon but in the meantime, check out these behind the scene pictures.

Antonino Salon is constantly evolving by adding new designs to it’s interior and image. Last year it was the addition of a new waiting area and new styling stations. In 2014, it was a new welcome desk and retail center. This year it’s going to be the addition of a customized video promotion that will be played in a strategic place in the salon. “The exact location is a secret, but we promise it will be seen by everyone, be very entertaining and be sure to turn heads”, said Anthony Marsalese, owner of the busy, downtown Birmingham salon.

The video “Mirror Mirror” was shot by FYT Productions at their studio in downtown Pontiac on February 29, 2016. Antonino stylists, Janel, Catherine and Anthony styled the hair (assisted by Laura K.) and makeup was created by Todd Scogg, owner of Todd’s Room in downtown Birmingham.

Watch for the unique video in the coming months-you won’t want to miss it!

Antonino Salon is conveniently located at 191 Townsend in downtown Birmingham, Michigan across from The Townsend Hotel.

On February 21 & 22, 2016, Anthony Marsalese of Antonino Salon, along with other beauty industry leaders including Steve Izzo of Izzo Cutter Salons, Randy Dingus of The Barber Shop and Company and Toni Coleman of Primary Syn Hair Color joined forces to inspire, motivate and share their knowledge with hairdressers from around the country.

Along with motivational speeches, the two-day event focused on many elements of the hairdressing industry, including hair coloring (by two up and coming stylists, Jessica Monroe and Michael Gainer), men’s barbering, women’s hairdressing and alternative hair pieces for men and women with thinning hair.

“We hoped to make a difference in the lives of not only the brand new stylists, but also give something for the seasoned stylists to take home with them”, says Toni Coleman, president and founder of Primary Syn Hair Color and the promoter of the event. “Most hair color companies don’t provide advanced education and we feel it’s our duty to give back to our customers by making sure they have not only a quality product, but also the knowledge to make them the best they can be”, she continued.

Hair trends for 2015 have been short, long and for the first time in a long time, medium (the Lob).

“Although they are completely different looks, the common denominator in each of the three lengths has been ‘structured imperfection’, meaning each style has a precision haircut but is styled to look tousled and sexy”, says Anthony Marsalese of Antonino Salon in Birmingham, Michigan.

All of the stylists at Antonino Salon participate in on-going educational events where they continue to advance their education by staying on top of current trends, forecasting what’s to come and learning the new techniques to achieve those styles.
