LOOKING YOUR BEST: “We are first and foremost caregivers for our customers. We specialize in hair services — styling, cuts, and color. In addition, we offer a plethora of experiences in a welcoming atmosphere. It’s a social experience too, and we want people to enjoy their time with us,” says Studio ONE60 co-owner and manager Deborah Salvato.

Helping customers to look their best is the mission of Studio ONE60, the new salon at 160 Witherspoon Street. Opened last May, it specializes in hair services, and also offers manicures, pedicures, facial waxing, and makeup applications.
“Our salon is intended to provide high quality hair and nail service as well as regularly scheduled social events such as wine tastings, art shows, and music,” points out co-owner and manager Deborah Salvato. “We offer a special atmosphere, with an emphasis on socialization. After all they have been through with COVID, people want to come together for a relaxed social experience. We can combine that with our professional services.”
In the cosmetology business for 30 years, Salvato has been licensed in all services, and has been associated with many salons in the area. When the opportunity to open her own salon came along, she did not hesitate. She and co-owner Laurent Mialhe gathered a staff of five professional stylists with extensive experience, and found the Witherspoon Street location.
An executive in the beauty industry, originally from France, Mialhe moved to Princeton 22 years ago, and looks forward to this new opportunity. more
