Cofounders, Elena Solitario and Paul Pastore, opened Pilo Arts in 1978. Since its inception, Pilo Arts has been committed to customer service, quality work, a professional atmosphere and a successful staff. These goals are accomplished through constant awareness of customer needs, and the continuous education and training of staff members. Pilo Arts looks to the future, accepting all new challenges with enthusiasm. Extraordinary Client Relationships and Passionate Service are key to our success. 1985 Pilo started a training academy for cutting and coloring. Paul, a creative and talented artist, headed the training. His students became the new stars at Pilo, each becoming extremely successful. Today, 95% of the salon's colorists and stylists are comprised of students who graduated from Pilo's Masters Academy. 1986 Pilo ventured out to pioneer uncharted avenues by constructing a 3, 200 square foot Day Spa, whose posh and relaxing atmosphere was the first of its kind in Brooklyn. Further changes in the early 90's emphasized relaxation, and thus innovative services were introduced. 1998 The salon undergoes a $800, 000 facelift. The d cor reflects the coming of a new age, the millennium. It incorporated practical aspects of functionality, productivity, environmental awareness, and respect for the traditional marketing needs of glamour and elegance. A blend of Rome and the Orient, the salon incorporates earth tones, natural material, rice paper dividers, copper and steel workstations with light natural wood cabinetry and Bella Terra floors. It is truly gorgeous! 1999 Pilo Arts was granted admission into Intercoiffure, the nation's elite organization for salons. Membership into Intercoiffure is highly prized. Salons recognized by Intercoiffure bring artistry and style into the fashion world. 1999 Pilo Arts was granted admission into the International SPA Association ( ISPA ). To achieve member status, Pilo's Day Spa had to meet high standards of excellence in the Spa Industry and pledge to abide to the ISPA Code of Ethics. 1999 Pilo Arts was accepted into Salon Today 200 and recognized as one of the top 200 Salons in North America, not only for its growth but for the standards that it sets in the beauty industry. 1999 Pilo Arts is recognized for donating over $100, 000 in services a year to charitable organizations and civic groups.

I went to get a single process and they did a horrible job !! My hair was brown with reddish tint and my roots were coming out natural hair is light Goldish ash brown .. I asked them if they can get me light ash brown to blend with my roots they said they can do it.. anyway they claimed they used level 6 of ash brown and the result was : my hair CAME OUT too DARK almost a BLACK color !! They promised I would go lighter and I ended up with color way darker than when I walked into the salon !! I will never forgive this shity treatment !! And they even charged me extra claiming that they used color correction ! Screw that !

Horrible make up

The make up artist was awful she had no idea what she was doing she was so unprofessional. She was more concerned about showing her coworkers you tube videos then doing my make up.when my make up was done I looked like a clown. I told her I wanted it for a wedding because I was a bridesmaid. So y would she put do much color. I hade to get or redone as soon as I left. The owner was just as bad. She made many comments to me that I felt was inappropriate. Ido not recommend this place.

I'm not going to sit here and bore you with stats about our salon but I am going to tell you this... Every client that walks through the door is greeted with open arms and a smile ...

My name is Juliette, I am a front desk receptionist at Pilo Arts and love every minute of it.

I pride myself as being understanding and accommodating to client needs. Pilo Arts is what it is today because of the experience you get when you are in the salon.

When clients call to make appointments, sometimes they don't even know what they want, but they have an idea of what they're trying to. I do my best to understand what you want and how you want it to apply the absolute best people of our staff to fit your individual needs.

The salon is a place of relaxation, friends and family. With such a strong and loving staff, clients have found a family within Pilo Arts and I have never had a position I love more. I am able to help clients get everything they want and more out of their time at Pilo Arts.

I see reviews of Pilo being over priced. You have to remember that when you choose Pilo Arts as your salon, your not just choosing a blow dryer and a chair. Pilo Arts is the city-like, up-scale, professional, relationship based salon of Bay Ridge where you are pampered, taken care of and "beautified".

I have never found more of a home in a salon as I have at Pilo Arts. Your front desk girls are your "salon agents" setting you up with everything you are looking for, reminding you of the amazing on-going promotions and your stylist is your professional, personal hair dresser that knows your hair, has a vision for your hair and knows how to handle it-- even when you dont.

Remember also that we have been consciously on-going with our promotions over this past year showing our clients that we are here for them. Our amazing promotions are endless. Just the other day I had a client telling me how much she appreciates my realism and help over the phone in setting her up with all of the appointments she needed. She has paid a large sum of money for her hair in the past and now with our promotions, I was able to save her a good amount and for that she was extremely grateful. There is no better feeling than hearing her tell me how happy she is with my help and the services she booked.

Pilo Arts is always, always innovating. Give us a call, sign-up for our e-mail promotions, or simply stop by to say hello and find out what new and exciting opportunities we are stirring up!

I am a creative stylist at Pilo Arts, and consider myself fortunate to be working here. Each stylist here is a unique artist, and passionate about our craft. We attend education workshops, mastering and perfecting our skills, and learning the most current styles and techniques. I consider Pilo Arts to be my second family. I have worked here back in 1999 -2005, when I decided to pursue an education in film studies and writing. I have continued to use my skills in hair and makeup on sets throughout NYC, and have visited and done work for some prestigious salons throughout Manhattan, and I must say that not only does Pilo Arts do amazing work, but the environment is very warm and down to earth.

I recently came back to work at Pilo Arts, and I am so happy to be back,working in a professional environment, surrounded by artists who truly love what they are doing.

The staff always gives 100% satisfaction to all guest, a welcoming environment where you can get pampered and treated to relax and feel like you a brand new person by the time you leave. In these uneasy times who wouldn't want that.So there's my take on this topic I hope it helps. Hope to see you soon!!
