Amid the soothing cream- and mocha-hued palette of Montage Salon, stylists wield Paul Mitchell products as they brighten locks with highlights and single-process-color services. The talented staff also customizes facials with Dermalogica products and blends conditioning treatments to best match hair type. Inside private rooms, aestheticians shape eyebrows and remove unwanted hair with wax instead of a jet-engine-powered vacuum cleaner. The staff rounds out the pampering with Gelish manicures and paraffin dips.
After moving to Buffalo, Nece Bellomo found herself returning to a passion she had first discovered in her homeland of Brazil: styling hair. “I just like to make people happy, to make them beautiful,” she says, recounting how she embarked on a whirlwind of education with hair mavens from Paul Mitchell and Rusk. Seven years ago, after only six years working in other people's salons, a devoted clientele motivated Nece to open her own salon and spa.
Drawing on a sleek New York aesthetic for inspiration, Nece and her daughter—a Goldwell-educated stylist and coworker—decorated the space in blacks, whites, and silvers and hung mirrors with ornate scrollwork frames to reflect back their clients' masterful coiffures. Although Nece is drawn to modern styles and keeps abreast of the latest coloring techniques and trends, she and her team focus on shearing ’dos that suit their clients’ face shapes, preferences, and inspiration from their favorite Bjork album.
In addition to pampering tresses, the salon and spa also enhances nails with chip-resistant Gelish polish, lavishes feet with scrubs and pedicures, and waxes away unwanted body fuzz.
At New Trendz Salon, the team expertly preps hair for special events. Sometimes, they go about it by custom cutting and coloring manes, or curling locks up into elaborate bouffants. However, they can also go about it by waxing off unwanted stubble, a process they handle as painlessly as possible whether they're administering a Brazilian or a back wax. The team can also enhance faces with custom-blended makeup or European facials, which nourish skin more effectively than just holding an ice pack to your cheek.
