Hair, there, and everywhere

Choices for hair care in the Spa City are ever-expanding, it seems.
The Strand Hair Studio set up shop in the Granite Palace (358 Broadway) on Memorial Day.
Co-owners Kristen Mann and Kevin Barrows (the former owner of Hair Creations on Phila Street) grew up together in Saratoga Springs and Florida. Both of them have been doing hair for more than 20 years.
Mann and Barrows, along with hair extension specialist Keri Tanner, all trained at Bumble & Bumble at the Bumble University in Manhattan.
The four-chair salon's services include cuts, styling, coloring and hair extensions with natural hair. Mann said they're sticking to what they're good at, which is doing hair, rather than offering an extended menu of beautifying services.
“Staying focused on one thing that you’re good at,” is key to a successful salon, she said.
One customer having his hair done Tuesday described The Strand’s atmosphere as a “mixture of trés chic with palm beach fusion ... bringing sexy back.”
I'm not entirely sure what that means but ... find out more by calling 581-1800.
The Web site, saratogastrand.com, is under construction.

Another recently opened salon is Above and Beyond Hair and Makeup Studio LLC at 6 Franklin Square.
Olenka Ciolko and her crew (Kristen Stroebel, Amy Waters-Federico and Joanna Romanzo) provide a huge menu of services for nails, hair and makeup. They specialize in prom, wedding and special occasion 'dos and makeup. And, they'll make you feel right at home when you walk into their cozy reception room.
