Benefit for Franklin and Mechanicville Community Centers on December 1
SARATOGA SPRINGS — When you are in the heart of Broadway, it’s a good idea to put your best foot forward for the window shoppers, impulse buyers and assorted cognoscenti.
With new ownership, attitude and style sense, Frank DeCrescenzo and his staff have redone The Broadway Salon, in an anchor position at 445 Broadway, from top to bottom and the result is stunning to see. A Brick wall is now more prominent, but that just the beginning. Fixtures, lighting and overall ambience are other categories that were transfixed.
The pictures go a long way to tell the tale, but the overall effect is, in a word, inviting. In fact, I invite you to invite yourself over for a visit.
“We’re a boutique salon with a select staff, and we wanted hand-selected elements in our décor,” DeCrescenzo said. He is also the owner of Salon Above, Inc., on the upper west side of Manhattan. A native of Mechanicville, he came upon this opportunity by happenstance while visiting family friends. He assumed ownership in June, and set to work, the result being the grand reopening celebration which is scheduled for Sunday, December 1.
When you are in the heart of Broadway, it’s a good idea to show how big your heart is.
In that spirit, the entire staff of Broadway Salon will be donating their time and income for the cause of benefitting both the Franklin Community Center and its companion center in Mechanicville.
All, repeat all, of the reduced to $25 that you will spend on a haircut that day (regular price ranges from $55-65) will be donated to those two organizations.
When you are in the heart of Broadway, it’s a good idea to endow your people as well as the facilities.
“We believe in training classes to constantly remain current with runway and other trends,” DeCrescenzo noted. “Right after the grand re-open here the staff will go down to New York City for a day.”
This investment in your staff is in keeping with the fact that DeCrescenzo is viewing his role as a mentor, noting that he wants to help manager Taryn Burgess and the stylists “develop a business together that they will be excited about and come to view as theirs. I’m excited about that prospect.”
Advance appointments for a December 1 haircut are recommended. Call (518) 583-1427.
