In the early 90’s Alfredo opened his doors to his first salon, Hair Mania. The decision to align with Aveda, the premium brand of the time made Hair Mania the first Aveda Lifestyle Salon & Spa in Chelsea.
As the business grew Alfredo found he was devoting more time to paperwork and less time to his clientele. After spending over a decade as Hair Mania, Alfredo made a bold decision to close the doors, downsize, and return to his true love, hair color. Alfredo Ray Salon was born.
Re-energized with a manageable sized business Alfredo was back in his creative environment until 2014. After 20+ years on West 25th Street, he now found his lease was coming to an end which left him only two options; retirement or relocating. Not nearly ready to retire, the search for a new location was underway. After 15 months and countless sites, renovations final began.
In June 2016, the original Alfredo Ray Salon closed its doors for the last time and Alfredo along with his core staff from Hair Mania began their next chapter.
