Tony, co-owner of Altieri Brothers Salon in Toluca Lake, and his team of experienced hair dressers want to ensure that each customer who walks in the door of their salon receives the personalized attention he or she deserves.
“It’s not about what we want, it’s about what the customer wants,” say Denise, Roc, Paige, Ali, Lynn and Corinne, all experienced stylists at the Altieri studio. “When a customer walks in the door, we want to make sure they feel at home.”
That’s not very hard, considering the salon’s environment. The brightly lit, cozy space has big mirrors and windows. Trendy, soothing music plays in the background as hairdressers talk and laugh with customers and each other. They offer customers drinks, and even give advice on the best local eateries. They’re a family, Denise says, and customers can pick up on that feeling.
The salon offers a high caliber of hair dressing and stands out in the community. They are experts in all things hair-related, including color, cuts, blow outs, updo’s and men’s cuts. The salon also offers the Coppola Complex Keratin blowout, a protein based system that adds shine, eliminates frizz and cuts blow drying time in half.
The salon invites all new customers, including The Disney Studios, Warner Bros. and New York Film Academy students, to come in and try their special offers and variety of expertise. The salon even features a “late night” every Wednesday and Thursday to accommodate anyone who gets off work late and serves wine and cheese every Thursday.
Altieri Brothers Salon is located at 4400 W. Riverside Dr. in Burbank, attached to Cinema Secrets, which has been family owned and operated since 1985. The shop was founded by award-winning Hollywood makeup artist Maurice Stein and offers makeovers by professional Hollywood Makeup artists.
