LAKE GEORGE - Having recently moved her salon to 2741 Route 9, Tina Cacckello of Tina's Hair Affair is now looking forward to expanding her services and clientele, she said.
"Now that we're in a more spacious setting and relaxing atmosphere, I'm hoping to grow the salon with talented seasoned stylists," she said.
Tina's new location, about one-eighth of a mile north of Lake George Village, is located in the former Mama Nette's grocery building. The structure has been totally renovated, and offers more space inside as well as ample parking for customers - a welcome change from her former spot on Montcalm Street.
Cacckello said the new space offers a perfect setting for the expansion of her services, which now includes Keratin treatments which give hair remarkably smooth and supple texture, she said. Certified in the Keratin technique, Cacckello has recently taught other stylists in the treatment as they participated in an international beauty show in Providence, R.I. She also travels to New York City at regular intervals to learn the latest hair trends and bring this knowledge back to the North Country, she said.
"I have a passion for hair and cannot imagine having any other career," she said. "Also, I love coming to work and meeting new people."
New customers are always welcome to visit her new salon. All are welcome to stop in and discuss the new trends and treatments, she said.
As a licensed beautician for more than 21 years, Cacckello is trained in creating hair extensions - in natural shades as well as fashion colors. She is certified as a Redken colorist and is a former Redken educator.
Cacckello takes pride in maintaining a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere in her salon as well as offering high quality, skilled services at affordable prices.
In addition to a full range of hair-care and styling services, Tina's Hair Affair offers spa manicures and pedicures, hot stone pedicures, body wraps, body scrubs, waxing, facials and massages, Cacckello said.
"I want my clients to look and feel spectacular from head to toe," she said.
Massage therapist Joyce Azur has joined the salon, which now offers 15 different massages due to Azur's many years of professional experience.
Carolyn deStratis is also a vital part of Tina's Hair Affair and specializes in soothing, relaxing facials as well Reiki therapy, Cacckello said.
"If you have never visited our salon, I look forward to meeting you and if you haven't been here in a while, come see what is new," she said.
Years ago, Cacckello moved to the Lake George to operate the Sagamore Resort's salon.
Owning her own salon for five years, Cacckello said she is looking to recruit more stylists who share her passion for people and hairstyles - those who enjoy working in a professional, fun, relaxing atmosphere.
