The Giambra family has operated Mr. Giuseppe’s Barber Shop on Beach 129 Street in Belle Harbor for over forty years. Proprietor Frank Giambra has now fulfilled his father’s long-time dream of taking over and renovating the space next door. It is now open for business as the area’s newest salon and day spa—Studio Gi!
Studio Gi has assembled a top-notch staff of professionals skilled in a wide range of salon and spa services for both women and men. Here’s a little bit about the staff and their backgrounds and specialties (left to right): Dara from Nelly’s; Beth from Pilo Arts; Helen from Strands; Bela from Magic Touch; Elana (with private customers throughout Cedarhurst and Belle Harbor); Amy (facials and microdermabrasion); Paula from Concept Elite; and the “camera-shy” massage specialist, Colleen.
Come to Studio Gi for a stylish haircut, the latest in hair color and keratin treatments, spa manicure/ pedicure, facials, threading, and waxing. Be sure to ask about the popular Brazilian hair removal method. Studio Gi can also provide you with several different varieties of massage therapy, from Swedish full body and deep tissue methods, to hot stone and sports massage. Just for guys, the spa also specializes in a full line of “manscaping” services, from microdermabrasion to manicure, pedicure and deep tissue massage—just what an active man might need to alleviate knotted muscles and relax the body! Or celebrate your special event with a spa party. Call Helen for details on creating your own spa package.
