Textures. Isn’t that what great hair is all about?
Here at Textures Hair Studio owners Christine Adkins and Amy Gabarini strive to nurture and enhance the many textures of hair.
They describe themselves as “Kindred souls. Two crazy gals who do great hair.” Together their open and friendly manor combines with their love of the craft and their never-ending quest for excellence to guarantee you the “hair” experience you’ve been looking for.
Attending technical seminars on current color and cut trends, Christine and Amy believe that continuing education is one of the most important responsibilities they have in keeping their Studio a leader in their field. They are extensively trained in color and color correction through Goldwell Academy while their hair cutting skills are continually challenged through their involvement with the Paul Mitchell Systems.
Christine Adkins has a degree in Business Administration and is a former color educator. She entered the business at the age of seventeen and still maintains that same love of the business she had when she first started.
Amy Gabarini is an avid supporter of the arts (think Bette Middler) and has been a stylist for twenty-four years, managing a salon for the last ten.
Their combination of experience, skills and education along with their artistic vision and their love of hair design and care guarantees you with an exceptional experience you will want to have over and over again.
Christine and Amy jokingly refer to themselves as “characters building character” and they encourage their staff to be involved in career and morale building activities.
Whether it be Locks of Love, the Nassau County Adopt a Family Program or the annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, their belief is “Dreams do come True” and their commitment to these programs, and any others their staff presents to them, are met with their full-support and enthusiasm. “Giving it Back” is something that is, and will remain, part of their long and short-term planning for the Salon. Their most recent contribution was to A Matter of Trust, a project that wove hair into mats used to soak up the oil spill in the Gulf.
Being part of the community they work in is another important consideration for them. They support "being green” at any opportunity and offer shampoo and hair spray refills for a discount to reduce the use of plastics. Their short-term plans include showcasing local artists work in their Studio and to provide student discounted rates and hope to be able to promote beauty with a conscience.
