Treated like family

To some, myself included, a hair appointment can be as dreadful as a dentist appointment. The apprehension we feel for hair appointments has most likely developed from a previous bad experience or two that we have had.

However, at Lucia’s...the Salon in Hudson, you will be able to not only trust your stylist, but you will actually enjoy the experience you receive.

When I asked owner Sally Zarlinga how she makes sure every guest at Lucia’s receives an excellent experience even after 18 years of service, she responded, “We treat our guests as if they’re our family and friends.”

From the time a guest steps in the front door, every aspect of Lucia’s reflects Zarlinga’s response. Not only are the employees friendly and accommodating like a family, but the chic yet cozy atmosphere created by wood flooring, gold mirrors and plush antique furniture also creates a welcoming environment.

“I have always tried to create culture in my salon, and we have a strong culture here built around love and serving others,” Zarlinga said. 

It is the love Zarlinga has for each guest that inspired her to open Lucia’s in December 2008. Since opening, Zarlinga’s business has flourished, and the salon now specializes in much more than styling, precision color and formal hair.

Lucia’s now also offers airbrush tanning and natural axxium gel lacquer manicures that allow color to stay for up to 21 days. For brides and prom-goers, Lucia's can be a one-stop beauty shop. 

By combining a personally and professionally trained staff (who attend workshops to remain at the height of fashion) with impeccable service, Lucia's creates experiences that are often far beyond guests' expectations.

“I love the instant gratification of making [our guests] feel unbelievable,” Zarlinga said.
