You may not be able to get a haircut or color service at Manhasset’s new Style Bar at 1689 Northern Boulevard, but you can get a fabulous blowout after being offered a glass of champagne or mimosa – afterall it is a bar pursey. Style Bar proprietor Rosemary Zollo is from Huntington Village where she noticed the trend for blowouts and decided to open up here in Manhasset. Once she spotted the location, she then placed an advertisment in Craig’s list from which many interested stylists inquired about job placement. “I’m willing to share clients with local salons, being we don’t offer cut and color,” said Zollo who hopes to become a friendly, local walk-in place for those wanting someone else to style their hair.
Style Bar is located adjacent to Flirt Salon in the very same shopping plaza. This new addition to Munsey Park Plaza since May has been doing very well – even if the summer months are a little slow for the neighborhood vacationers. It’s like a one-stop shop for beauty with the two salons right next door to one another. According to Zollo, more and more of these blow-out bars are popping up all over the place. However, her business is not only about blow-drying the hair, but she offers a “Royal Menu” that gives women an array of deep conditioning treatments, hair extensions, as well as package deals or memberships to choose from. Ladies can save on cost while booking or planning for several blow-outs for the month. They offer eleven different “Royal” styles which include the likes of Modern Kate, Classic Diana, Rebel Stephanie, or Sophisticated Caroline, as well as Soft Waves, Sleek & Smooth and more. There’s even a less pricey $25 blowout for little princesses 12 and under.
According to Zollo, women just like to go have their hair blown-out professionally because often the final product looks so much better than when they do it themselves. “Not all women get blowouts, but there are those that go every single week, like they do for their manicures,” added Zollo. Many women don’t even wash their hair anymore but come here 2-3 times a week for a wash and blowdry – it’s become that popular, she added.
The whole blowout process takes about half an hour. If a customer desires a curler, flat-iron, or a wand, she should plan to stay an extra 15 minutes. The longest appointment could last about 45 minutes, and what’s nice is that every additional tool is included in the $35 price per blow-out. The six staff stylists often cut or do color at another salon or privately. “The women I hired love doing the styling of the hair and don’t mind doing that alone at Style Bar,” Zollo confirmed.
Style Bar is conveniently open Sundays. Hours are Tuesday and Wednesday 8 a.m. – 7 p.m., Thursday and Friday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 10:00 a.m. – 5 p.m. Closed Mondays. For more information, please call 516-627-HAIR (4247) or visit www.royalstylebar.com.

It seems as though the real estate market is not the only thing hot in Manhasset. A number of new stores are popping up throughout the community making Manhasset the go-to location for business. On Plandome Road, facades are being renovated to add a fresh new look. The change is updating the appearance of the existing storefronts and causing the opening of new businesses. The exterior facade of Vincents Cleaners, Tony’s Shoe Repair and Manhasset Hair Stylists are brand new both front and back. The renovation beckons customers to come in to shop on a new trendy main street.
Last week a new tenant moved into the space that adorns the renovated new storefront called ivivva. ivivva is a new store from lululemon featuring clothing for young girls age 4 to 14. And the trend continues. Just this weekend, two new businesses, Adelina Boutique and Barrel Grapes, and new members of the Manhasset Chamber of Commerce opened their doors here. They held grand opening events on Friday and Saturday night.

The Indians' regular season came to a close recently, but not before the boys locked up several more post-season honors to complete a highly successful campaign that brought an undefeated season as well as Division and Conference Championships. Manhasset headed into the post-season with high aspirations and battled it out with rival Wantagh High School for two weekends in a row—at both the Class Country Championships and the State Qualification race—coming up just short on both occasions, but achieving many milestones along the way.
