Once Barbara finished rockin’ out to the 80s, she began her professional career at Henri Bendel. Working in New York City as assistant to Head Colorist Constance Hartnett and under the direction of Jean Louis David, she had the opportunity to learn and practice Balyage, (an alternative to foil and cap highlights,) and become a L’Oreal professional colorist. Barbara joined the team at John Sahag Salon in 1986 and went through intensive training in foiling and color weave techniques. During these years she continued to build a loyal clientele.
With many of her clients living in the tristate area, Barbara opened The Color Salon in 1987 in Scarsdale, Westchester County offering all aspects of professional hair color. Today The Color Salon is still frequented by clients who started with her in NYC.
Over the past 26 years The Color Salon continues to grow and she and her staff of colorists and stylists provide a relaxing environment with clients leaving feeling “Naturally Beautiful”.
