After being brought up in a salon family, LaSpina owner Joe LaSpina left the nest to run his own salon, HairWorks, which eventually branched into three locations. LaSpina's aesthetic skills grew leaps and bounds after a decade at HairWorks, leading him to work on the set of Newhart and eventually open his namesake salon and spa. Now LaSpina leads a staff of experienced salon and spa professionals who pamper and transform patrons with hair design, color enhancement, facials, and massages.
Inside the salon, haircuts and updos build new styles as color-enhancement and texturing services disguise strands in new shades and shapes. Stylists smother tresses in products from Redken, Paul Mitchell, American Crew, and Joe LaSpina's signature line. LaSpina also comes to the aid of clients dealing with hair loss due to illness, genetics, or blindfolded weed whacking, meticulously working with hairpieces and wigs to create a stylish look.
