Partners Cindi Galiher and Kathy Korab, owners of GLAZE Salon in Chatham, offer a one-stop beauty and retail experience that is aimed at meeting and exceeding everyone’s beauty needs and wants.
With 18 stylists under one beautiful 2500-sq-ft. roof, there is little chance you won’t be able to book a hairdresser when you need one.
Fully 85% of these stylists also boast more than two decades of experience and the knowledgeable, welcoming desk staff match new clients to the stylists who will best meet their particular needs.
The Salon Experience
Expertise is important as this New York style salon
offers, among many other things, the very popular Brazilian blowouts/keratin treatments and does a great deal of hair extension work using different types of hair extension products from LA. “Hair extensions are red hot right now and they can be very tricky,” Galiher says, “so you must have people who know what they are doing.” Popular extensions GLAZE provides include falls, halos, and layered halos.
Many of these extensions now feature the bayalage color highlights that are also very popular for hair—the blues, greens, and purples, and the silvery blonde highlights trending for Spring. Galiher notes, “Using extensions for color is a cool way to get the bayalage look without the need to dye your own hair.”
This emphasis on expertise—which also extends to the salon’s nail, eyebrow, lash, and waxing services—is why GLAZE prides itself on keeping their stylists and staff up to speed and recently welcomed a new nail technician with 30 years of experience. Galiher says, “We make sure all of our stylists have access to classes on the latest in cutting techniques and have access to information on new products and how to use them.”
The Retail Experience
Not only does the salon stay up on the best products, but it makes many available for clients as well. Luxury haircare lines you won’t find nearly anywhere else include ENJOY, Oribe and IIes Formula. A product line for men called 1812 includes shampoos, beard oils, pomades, and other beauty items. The salon also carries the Olaplex system that is designed to repair, strengthen, and protect hair and a full line of ancillary products for Brazilian blowouts.
But that’s just the beginning of the retail experience at GLAZE. Clients can browse products including the Save My Bag line of wipe clean neoprene cosmetic and toiletry bags; find Antica Farmacista candles and crystal diffusers; peruse Swarovski crystal accented apparel; choose Peepers reading glasses; check out CBD-based skincare products and gummies, and all while perhaps sipping a cappuccino or latte from the Nespresso bar during the day, or enjoying a glass of wine or a mimosa, that the salon provides clients while they wait on evenings and Saturdays. Clients are always invited to relax and enjoy.
And that may be what firmly sets this salon on top as clients rave about its warm and welcoming atmosphere. “People tell me how much they love it here, how professional and welcoming it is, and once they come in the first time, they come back,” says Galiher, “and that’s rewarding.” As a final bonus, GLAZE has its own parking lot with plenty of room for all—you won’t have to hunt to get your seat at this salon.
