For co-owners Catherine Imbesi and Arlene Webber, Salon Ciseaux hasn’t just been a place to use their talents as master stylists: it’s also a place to share their passions with others. For Imbesi, that means showing off her strong work ethic, one she formed when opening her own salon and simultaneously finishing her college degree. Webber, on the other hand, uses her global experiences and people skills to make the salon a welcoming space for clients of different cultures. Together, the curly-haired owners tame tendrils in their certified Ouidad curly-hair-specialist salon and helm a team of stylists who craft new hairdos, remove unwanted hair, and meticulously groom nails. The duo has also shown off their hair skills on the runway, having been handpicked by designer Juan Carlos Obando to style his model’s hair during New York Fashion Week in 2008.
