All of the stylists at Antonino Salon and Spa have been extensively trained in a blow-dry technique called “The French Blow-Dry”.

This unique styling technique uses round brushes of varying sizes. Stylists start at the top of the head and over-direct each section before gently lay it down in the opposite direction of how they want it to fall. After reaching the last section on each side, all of the above sections are brought down, resulting in beautiful cascading waves with a lot of body, softness and movement.

If you’ve ever wanted beautiful, “magazine cover” hair, then the French Blow Dry is for you.

Call us at 248-258-5990 or request an appointment today to reserve an appointment for your special evening on the town.

The French Blow-Dry; just another reason Antonino Salon is the best salon in town.

Inspiration From the Best
Vivienne MacKinder and Anthony Marsalese

Vivienne MacKinder and Anthony Marsalese

       “Hairdressing is a practice, you have to keep practicing throughout your entire career or you won’t succeed”: Words of wisdom from Nino Genna, Anthony Marsalese’s uncle, who recently retired from hairdressing after more than 70 years in the profession. Also words of advice that motivated Anthony to submerge himself in an intense five-day workshop last October.

       “Five on Five”, the intimate workshop taking place in the Hamptons is intended to take people out of their comfort zone and challenge them to new and creative techniques and teach leaders how to be effective mentors.

       Led by Vivienne Mackinder, one of the most highly respected international leaders in the hairdressing profession, the workshop only accepts five people to work side by side the award winning hairdresser for five days. When Anthony visited however, he got lucky, three people cancelled the week before; he only had to share the experience with Vivienne Mackinder and one other stylist.

“The education, inspiration and creativity that Vivienne shared has changed my life” says Anthony. “Her system of teaching is simple, yet it brings to a new level of understanding to the art of hairdressing”. Learning everything from technical razor cutting to creating a “perfectly, un-perfect up-do”, Anthony brought home a wealth of knowledge and inspiration.

       All of Antonino Salon’s stylists and assistants will soon be inspired too. Beginning January 2014, our entire staff will challenge themselves to Vivienne Mackinder’s “HairdesignerTV”, a new, innovative on-line education system, where they will be taught and inspired by Vivienne Mackinder herself. They will learn her techniques, practice them, submit them on-line and receive first hand advice from one of the hairdressing world’s most famous hairdresser.

We look forward to continue offering new creative ideas and techniques to all our guests and can’t wait to share them with you.
