Most women know that if your hair looks good, you look – and feel – good.
Leo Rubin, owner of R&L Salon & Spa in Whitestone also believes in this statement. He makes sure that his clients always look and feel their best.
“It gives you confidence,” he said.
With an emphasis on quality products and great customer service, Leo, who knows most of his clients by name, has 17 years of experience in the beauty industry.
Trained in Europe, Rubin comes from an educated background.
“I chose this profession to make people happy. When you are happy, you feel and look beautiful,” he said.
His wife Rose is his inspiration and his support system.
“She said I was an artist and encouraged me to open my own business,” beamed Rubin. “She always helps me.”
He relishes the one-on-one experience of working with clients and keeps up with the latest trends in the industry, such as the Keratin complex hair therapy.
“It doesn’t dry, burn or destroy the hair,” Rubin noted. “It keeps the hair healthy.”
No matter what language you speak, you’ll have someone to talk to at R&L, where the multi-cultural staff speaks English, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Greek, French and Chinese.
Rubin and his highly trained, licensed staff of international professionals use products such as Alfaparf, Scruples, AG, Redken and Wella. They also offer threading, body waxing, manicures, and pedicures.
Other services for your tresses include conditioning treatments, glossing, blowouts, high lights and low lights and, of course, cuts.
This friendly neighborhood salon offers monthly specials – Keratin complex starting at $149 (long hair extra), Wella or Redken colors $29.95 (long hair extra) and others.
