Rolando Cevallos's beauty career began with makeup, but after mastering the art—and working his way up to become the creative director of Chanel—he decided to segue into hair. Rolando perfected his techniques as a top stylist in numerous New York salons before opening Paris Salon. He is constantly looking for new ways to elevate his craft, and, through frequent trainings and lots of hard work and positive energy, encourages his staff to do the same. Together, they perform designer haircuts, color, and makeup applications in the chic salon space.
Master stylist Steven Melito knows that style continually evolves?so he supports his team at Sivana Salon by encouraging continued eduction and creative development. The stylists apply this up-to-date know-how with an array of mane taming services for men, women, and children, from haircuts and blowouts to glazed coloring and weave extensions. To accentuate revamped looks, the salon's aestheticians can apply airbrush makeup to lift unwanted fuzz with waxing treatments.
Live music and a duo of fireplaces create a cozy ambience inside Restaurant Five Five 2, an eatery named for its address on North Country Road in St. James. Chef prepares small-plate tapas such as the PEI mussels steamed in lobster broth and salmon tartare served on crisp wontons with spicy mayo, more substantial entrees such as New York Strip Steak or Linguini Pescatore, along with sliders that a New York Times reviewer praised as "the best sliders I?ve ever had, made with Angus beef, cooked precisely to order (medium-rare) and running with juices." That same review described the desserts such as the cr?me br?l?e, as "perfect: thick, cold and satiny." Five Five 2 was also voted one of the best restaurants of 2013 by Newsday.
