Glenn and MaryAnn Guerriero, owners of Brooklyn Attitude Hair and Body salon at 135 Ballston Ave., like to say they’ve put Saratoga Springs on the map for “health, history, horses and hair!”, and they’ve had 10 years here to perfect their art.
The Guerrieros offer haircuts, coloring, straightening, permanents, fashion updos, makeup consultations, bridal-party services and hair extensions. The salon uses CHI 100 percent ammonia-free hair color; 100 percent ammonia-free perms; and KeraStraight, a formaldehyde-/aldehyde-free semipermanent straightening, smoothing and hair-repair system.
Using their creativity, personality and commitment to education and innovation, they’ve put their salon on the map and built a loyal clientele. Brooklyn Attitude has won such awards as Best Hair Salon in Saratoga, one of the Best Beauty Salons in the U.S.A., and one of the Top Hot 100 Salons in America in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
“We are dedicated to our clients, our community and our profession,” said Glenn Guerriero.
Among other community projects, the salon has sponsored fund raisers for Hurricane Katrina victims; the Women's Shelters of Saratoga; and the Lend a Hand Program, which assists students with limited financial resources within the Saratoga school district.
Looking ahead into the next 10 years, the owners are considering opening a cosmetology school and starting a Brooklyn Attitude product line.
“We want to educate our clients about good healthy hair and give them long-lasting haircuts,” Glenn Guerriero said. “We want everyone to look better going out than they did coming in.”
