Salvatore Anthony Hair Studio, located in one of Litchfield County’s prettiest villages (New Preston), opened for business in April. Acting as Litchfield County’s welcome wagon, we visited Sal for a little “getting to know you” session! We were also in need of a really good hair day for our J. Seitz & Co. fashion shoot, so things worked out perfectly.

Sal’s Aveda hair studio is elegant (cashmere drapes and leather clad shelves), modern, and comfortable. A handsome, huggable, and talented hair colorist/stylist – Sal divides his time between NYC (where he is a Master Stylist at the Scott J. Salon) and his studio in New Preston (find him there by appointment Thursday, Friday, and Saturday).

We yelled out our questions over the noise of the dryer…here’s what we think we heard… 😉

This post is for all the fine-haired women out there. And I mean, fine. Hair hangs like fluff around your face. You have to load your hair with product for it to maintain any kind of style. Hair doesn’t stay in a part, it falls wherever it wants, or, whichever way the wind blows it.

All my life I’ve wished for thick, swishy hair. I’m not even talking Pantene-ad thick, just a ponytail that’s thicker than the size of my pinky. See exhibits a, b, and c below.

When we met Scott Bond, celebrity hairstylist, I confided in him this longing of mine, telling him that he could give me the best cut and color of my life, but I’d still have super fine hair. Scott told me I could stop wishing and start believing because he was going to give me the thick hair of my dreams…

His name is Bond, Scott Bond…and he’s a celebrity hairstylist, living in Litchfield County on occasion – when he’s not jetting off to style hair in NY, LA, or London.

We drove to Goshen and knocked on his door one cold winter day not long ago, (we were invited, honest) and asked him to use his Edward Scissorhands on our mops.

Watch Scott in action, and check out the end results – we’ll call this episode of Unlocking Litchfield – “Lora and Bev get fancy new dos.”

Bev and Lora headed to the David Gavin Salon located in Kent town center, to learn the secrets to obtaining the perfect blow out. You know how it is; you leave the salon with hair so swishy you can’t believe it’s the same hair you walked in with. How do they do that? Well, we were determined to take notes and capture it on film so we can all get the same effect at home. Worth a shot right?! Here’s the top tips we picked up.
