Is it the confidence boost that comes with a brand new ‘do? The chance to relax at the salon for an hour or two? The fresh feeling of healthy hair on your noggin? At Ene Salon in the East Village, it’s all of these things that add up to a great experience. On a quiet stretch of East 3rd Street, Nelson Barreto’s shop has called the East Village home since 1997. Inside his shop, guests are treated to an atmosphere that’s as serious about good hair as it is about good fun. Nelson and his crew keep things light, with laughs and laidback tunes, while crafting some high quality new ‘dos.
Since earning his stripes at the Olympus & Mercedes Benz fashion weeks in the US, UK and France, Nelson has gone on to become an internationally renowned stylist, brushing up the likes of Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and America’s Next Top Model’s Jaslene Gonzalez. In addition to creating new looks for singers, actors, Broadway productions and TV shows, Nelson has also appeared in flicks like “The Perfect You” (with Jennifer McCarthy) and “Slaves of New York” (with Bernadette Peters). But despite all these big names on his resume, the best thing about Ene is its humility. Anyone who swings into the salon’s chairs can leave feeling camera-ready. Mr. DeMille, come on down to the East Village. We’re ready for our closeup.
