When Tina Lelia opened her new hair salon business and joined forces with Joseph Haircutters on Plandome Road over a year ago, she came armed with over 37 years of prior experience in the hairdressing business. “I was looking forward to coming to Manhasset and I also knew that my staff and I would be a valuable asset to the shop,” she says. “It’s a great location too and I knew my existing clients would enjoy easy parking near my new salon.”
Tina said she provides excellent service and is very passionate about the treatment, coloring and styling of hair. “I have a solid reputation for earning the trust and confidence of my clients through my technical expertise and commitment to understanding my clients’ needs and preferences,” explains Tina. “My training and professional experiences have provided me the skills necessary to maintain an excellent level of service,” says Tina. She explained that her professional training was received at Queens Vocational High School and later at Chadwick’s International Coiffure and the Keratin Complex Hair Therapy Treatment Center.
Before she opened in Manhasset in February 2012 she had her own business, Salon Plus Inc., in New Hyde Park since 1988. Prior to that, she said she gained invaluable experience while working as a hairdresser at Christie’s in Bayside for five years.
Tina’s Salon provides services such as hair cutting, highlights, single process hair coloring, deep conditioning, body waves, and chemical straightening as well as blow dry styling. Also available are manicures, pedicures and waxing—“we can even take care of all cosmetic needs for special occasions.”
Important to her success, she believes, is that she keeps up-to-date with the latest trends and techniques and really enjoys attending industry events that give her an opportunity to meet other professionals to discuss these trends and techniques. “I also know that another key to my client satisfaction is my ability to carefully listen and interpret my clients’ requests.” Her skill in this area has been proven by repeat business as well as constant referrals.
Located at 425 Plandome Road in Manhasset, Tina’s Salon is open Wednesday-Friday. from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 8.30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Phone is (516) 365-5655.
Tina acknowledges, “appointments are appreciated, but we also love walk-ins.”
