For almost 30 years, Nick Trombetta has shared his passion and inspiration for precision artistry in great hair care color and designs with his clients, students and top rated hair care professionals.
A former national educator, platform artist and Artistic Director for IT&LY Hairfashion, Nick’s innovative techniques have been featured in international forums and magazines. In 2011, he was bestowed the honor of “Best Hair Colorist of Westchester County” by The Westchester Magazine, an award which gave voice to that which his clients, team and professional colleagues have known and sought his counsel.
Awards and accolades aside, Nick’s distinction is his innate ability to fuse a clients’ inner and outer beauty by earning their trust and confidence. By gaining an understanding of his clients, he can then unleash his knowledge and skill. It stands to reason that Nick’s clientele span women and men of all ages. This gift of character extends to those who have unfortunately lost their hair for medical or other reasons. Nick has opened a separate wing of the Salon privately and confidentially catering to those so affected.
Also known for his ability to reconstruct the hair coloring “disasters” achieved outside of his salon, Nick is gratified seeing the relief and happiness of a client who thought their hair was irreparably damaged.
Nick continually inspires creativity and shares cutting edge techniques to his already talented professional team. At the same time, he is constantly seeking opportunities to learn from his colleagues, team and clients, many of whom have become personal friends.
