A Cut Above Hair Studio is a Redken Elite Salon. That means the on-staff hairstylists, colorists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists not only boast years of practice, but they do their diligence to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques.

Over on the salon side, stylists provide designer cuts personalized to each client; they'll add color, give hair shape and volume, or straighten it to create a look that suits their client's individual features and lifestyle. Skincare services are just as personalized?during the custom spa facial, aestheticians employ warm towels, toners, moisturizers, and steam to wrestle out whatever blemishes are interfering with skin's natural radiance. Massages and body wraps round out the pampering services, offering respite from stresses such as work deadlines or trying to get your dog to eat your homework.

Francesca D'Ambrosio's first job in the beauty biz was answering phones at a salon and spa in Naperville. Once she earned her cosmetology license, she jetted to New York to work alongside prestigious stylists and make her way to the top from the bottom of the barrel. Fortunately, her first gig as a stylist was anything but at the bottom of the barrel—she started at the Bumble and bumble salon, one of the Big Apple's hubs for celebrities, fashion-industry elites, and globetrotting wigs. She stayed in New York for about a decade, shaping the famous hairs atop Fran Drescher, Mark Wahlberg, Joan Jett, and Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas.

When she relocated to Oswego, Francesca opened a salon of her own. Located on Main Street in the historic downtown area, the space has the simple sophistication that befits a transplanted New Yorker. The black-and-white scheme extends to the walls, where portraits of Audrey Hepburn and other style icons supervise haircuts, keratin treatments, and color services.

Regardless of a client's hair length, color, or texture, one of A Private Salon's staff members probably specializes in working with it. Jatuan Menzies focuses on extensions, braids, and weaves. Dwight Posey's fortes are African American barbering, haircutting, and chemical and thermal retexturizing treatments, whereas Michael Ryan prefers to color tresses and is trained in multiple La-Brasiliana application techniques. All the stylists, however, spend time listening to clients' hair needs and desires. That way, patrons' dos properly express their individuality, rather than that of the person photobombing their reflections from the styling chair.
