Bonnie Rappel, a true artist and Master Hair Colorist, was Marlboro’s best-tressed secret until now. In this very tumultuous economy Bonnie’s Salon is flourishing. She purchased one of Marlboro’s most prestigious Historic Landmark Buildings and opened up the Salon of her dreams. The Parsonage at 34 North Main Street is now Bonnie Rappel Hair Artistry. “I fell in love with this building in 1994 while looking for a home in Marlboro. Through the years I had always envisioned myself creating and doing my craft in this wonderful space. In July 2008 I was lucky enough to purchase this property. I am truly living my dream. Life doesn’t get any better than this!”
Keeping with the warm beautiful flair of the building’s era, I decorated with an eclectic feel; warm inviting antiques and beautiful vintage pieces. An antique sideboard is the salon’s focal point used as a color bar where you get to see what has always been hidden in the back room- the formulation of your color. I work with my clients on a one-on-one level for a more personal feel from beginning to end, never passing them off to anyone else. I listen to your wants as well as your needs. Being a hair designer is not just what I do, it is who I am.
I was fortunate enough to be educated at a top school for hair design in NYC. I then landed an enviable position as a platform artist for the world famous Kenneth Salon in NYC. While at Kenneth Salon I went on to became a Master Hair Colorist, which is the highest level one can achieve in hair color expertise.
Having such strong beliefs in my craft means I will never compromise the integrity of the hair to achieve a desired result. Whether you want to be a sultry rich brunette, radiant gorgeous red head or one of my believable blondes, you can rest assured that your hair will always be in optimum condition. Nothing looks and feels as good as beautiful healthy hair. Everything I create is to enhance your individuality, created just for you with the finest most luxurious color and products in the world. With my European Concept Haircutting Technique, you get a cut designed especially for you! It doesn’t get any better than that!
I continue to serve as an Educator for the world-renowned hair color company Framesi, based in the fashion capital of the world, Milan, Italy. Being a part of the influence in hair trends stemming from Milan, I am able to bring these European trends immediately to my clients before they hit the U.S.
Keeping with the needs of the salon’s clientele, I am very excited to offer a full range of Spa Services, including Manicures, Pedicures, Waxing, Massage Therapy and Skin Care. Only the finest high-end luxurious products are used. No imitations ever! We match each individual client’s need with the appropriately designed product.
I have personally selected each professional that has joined my team. Each and every one has been extensively trained. They have incredible credentials and are committed to the art of their craft. At my Salon and Spa I would never settle for anything less!
My dream has always been to have a Salon like no other. A place that’s warm and inviting, where you are personally taken care of from beginning to end, where you are able to feel totally and completely at peace. A wonderful place to be pampered, feel relaxed and just get taken care of without a thought or care in the world. A place where you can just come and escape.
I invite you into my home away from home for an experience of a lifetime, one that you will never forget. An experience that you will look forward to time after time.
“If you can envision it, we can create it!”
