Paul Pecorella began his journey of beauty and fashion in Pachino, Sicily, where he was born and raised. Following his passion for hair design, he eventually travelled to Rome and Milan, studying the craft and cementing his aesthetic. Then, in the 1960s, opportunity carried him across the Atlantic to Yorkville, where he obtained the title of Master Cutter and opened his salon. Now, dedicated to inspiring young stylists with that same zeal for fashion, Paul and his staff train New Talent artists in sophisticated scissor choreography while showing Mother Nature respect through eco-friendly Aveda products and proper table etiquette.
The mane artists at Paul Pecorella Hair Salon & Spa specialize in upstyling and technical colour, and invigorate tresses with chic cuts, textured styles, and hydrating follicle treatments supplemented by the organic, conditioning plant oils of Aveda products. Like a megaphone made from a rolled-up rainbow, Paul Pecorella's salon announces its commitment to style with vibrant colour palettes that revolve around lime and mint to inspire stylists as they flourish their craft.
Second Skin Medspa, helmed by licensed medical aesthetician Rose Cruz, pampers and retouches skin while adhering to stringent safety and sanitation standards. Cruz draws on more than 14 years of experience of practicing medical aesthetics in Vancouver and Toronto to perform chemical peels, banish acne, and care for diabetic feet, a specialty she learned at the North American School of Podology. IPL laser hair removal leaves skin smooth, and fractional skin resurfacing and photofacials help to fade fine lines and restore a youthful appearance without requiring one to eat play-doh. The spa also treats nails with relaxing manicures and pedicures that promote foot health and include a soak in a sanitary pipeless tub.
In the waiting room, a grid of circular mirrors reflects teal and white decor as clients sink into a wide couch with pillows. During pedicures, guests can rest on a plush white couch, stretch an arm over an ebony side table, and inhale gentle aromas from a diffuser in the corner.

Before styling a new do for someone, Sebastian Scala takes note of the nuances of that person's skin tone and hair color. It's testament to the sense of detail he’s internalized in his process—he’s worked in the salon industry for more than a decade. He and his trained stylists mold manes with products by Redken, Goldwell, Davines, and Moroccanoil.
Sebastian's stylists stand before minimalistic stations with large borderless mirrors as they perform one of their many services, such as giving glowing highlights and luscious permanent waves to women. They also extend their salon services to men—they can trim beards or dye hair a rustic flannel plaid.
Within the taupe-hued surroundings of Fraiche Salon, comfy black styling chairs stare into wood-rimmed mirrors, in which client's reflections transform during a variety of salon services. Along with haircuts and styles, highlights add streaks of vibrant colour to 'dos, and hair-straightening treatments leave manes stronger, shinier, and with the strength and elasticity to deflect oncoming boomerangs. Additionally, facials and waxing refresh visages and skin, and a kaleidoscope of packages such as Girls’ Night Out, Working Girl De-Stress, and Me, Me, Me, Me blend several treatments into a single session.
