Wander into Warren for a Seamless Salon Experience
Carol Fiorilli knows hair. The owner of Fiorilli Hair Design in Warren has been working with clients for forty years and has proudly owned her own salon since 2005. Having moved from one side of Warren to the other this past January, her modern and sleek salon has a welcoming feel, which draws customers in. In collaboration with her husband, Joe, they redesigned their new space which gives Fiorilli Hair Design an updated vibe.
Being a hairdresser, she always had a vision to do hair and also be the owner of her own salon. “I always wanted to go into hair and attend beauty school,” she says, “my life is this industry and it’s my passion!” Her stylists attend REDKEN conferences in Las Vegas each year in addition to taking educational workshops in New York City. She’s had a lot of the same seasoned stylists for years and are very well rounded with their services. “You need to stick to what you know, “says Fiorilli. Being REDKEN-elite, the salon is also loyal to the Pureology line of products and credits their Cezanne smoothing service as a popular one for clients. “It’s formaldehyde free and without chemicals, which our more health-conscience clients like,” says Ellen Walsh, a salon employee.
Fridays and Saturdays are the busiest days and with prom and wedding season approaching, they are seeing requests roll in for updo’s and makeup appointments. Sundays they are open by appointment only, which works out rather well for bridal parties gearing up to get glam for nearby weddings at Fiddlers Elbow Country Club or the Ryland Inn.
Fiorilli sees local customers and ones that come from all over who have remained loyal over the years. “People travel; they don’t like leaving their hairdresser,” she says with a laugh, but it’s the honest truth. “I have a customer who has been coming here for 36 years and when I told her I was taking some time off to have a surgery, she said, ‘Does this mean you won’t be able to do my hair?’ ” Fiorilli knows the nights, weekends, and long hours on your feet are not for everyone, but she enjoys getting to be a part of someone’s life. “People will always need to get their hair done,” she says, “And I was born to be a hairdresser.”
