Born in Calabria, Italy, Donna was raised in Chappaqua.For more than thirty years, she has brought a lifelong passion for style and beauty to her work. She was inspired and mentored by a Manhattan-based stylist who established one of the first hair salons in Chappaqua (then housed in the same building where Citibank and Pizza Station now sit). With experience and inspiration under her belt, she dared to combine her entrepreneurial spirit and creative dreams and set up her own business with partners. The salon moved to its current location in 1994..
Donna is direct and honest: she enjoys meeting new people and tends to form long-lasting relationships with clients, sometimes spanning generations in the same families. Even clients who move to other areas of the county and other states seem to return!
Not one to follow a cookie-cutter approach, she is a patient listener who aims to help clients define their own sense of style. This derives from a careful understanding of each client’s type of hair, the individual’s desired look, and the latest products, techniques and industry trends.
