Andrea's Organic Hair Studio & Day Spa
At Andrea's Organic Hair Studio & Day Spa, it's not unusual to see a client with dozens of magazine pages clipped into her hair. The stylists haven't gone crazy—it's just one of owner Andrea Sorrenti's ways of preserving the environment, since recycled magazines work as well as foils for highlights and avoid excess waste. This dedication to to the Earth is present in everything the salon does, from carrying cruelty-free, vegan Onesta haircare formulas bottled in 100% post-consumer recycled packaging to donating hair clippings to Matter Of Trust to soak up oil spills.
Of course, this avoidance of all things harsh and chemical-laden extends to the beauty services, as well. Experienced stylists, some of whom have trained under Andrea herself, craft face-flattering haircuts, imbue vibrant hues and highlights with Organic Color Systems and All-Nutrient Organics color formulas, and smooth unwieldy locks with organic True Keratin treatments. Nail services rely on natural, formaldehyde-free polishes from Zoya and Qtica, along with standalone pedicure bowls that guard against the spread of fungus, bacteria, and stale dance moves. In private rooms, therapists ease tension and center minds with with energy work and therapeutic, trigger-point, and myofascial-release massage, and skin experts purify complexions with Eminence organic skin care.
