Today I met Colin, a fellow, former New Englander, for my two-step color process. Colin is very confident, experienced, and he's also a wonderful raconteur. We swapped some stories and watched the amazing blonde and brown effects settle in. Balayage is painted on with a brush, over the first stage single process color, and then lots of clear plastic wrap enfolds the cotton and color, as a protective heat shield. An open, revolving hair dryer does the rest. Later on, Mariabella styled and shaped my freshly replenished hair. A few days later I came by for a conditioning treatment, always a good idea after any color processing.

Alonso, Salon Ziba's Founder and President, from Colombia, is world-renowned for his fashionable clientele and unique hair treatments. Also available at Salon Ziba are nail treatments, private massage therapy, waxing, and more. Alonso is active in the New York media, participating often in galas, events, television interviews, magazine promotions, and charity events, as he strongly supports women's health organizations.

Salon Ziba also has a second location in Greenwich Village, on 6th Avenue at 12th Street, for downtown residents and for those who travel downtown for work. Both midtown and downtown salons feature special hair treatment and styling events, so check the Salon Ziba website regularly. Call Salon Ziba, and ask for Alonso or Olivier, or speak with any of the fine Salon Ziba staff, and tell them you saw them on You will be rubbing shoulders with fashion models, television personalities, actors, dancers, and producers!
