General Info
Cofounders, Elena Solitario and Paul Pastore, opened Pilo Arts in 1978. Since its inception, Pilo Arts has been committed to customer service, quality work, a professional atmosphere and a successful staff. These goals are accomplished through constant awareness of customer needs, and the continuous education and training of staff members. Pilo Arts looks to the future, accepting all new challenges with enthusiasm. Extraordinary Client Relationships and Passionate Service are key to our success. 1985 Pilo started a training academy for cutting and coloring. Paul, a creative and talented artist, headed the training. His students became the new stars at Pilo, each becoming extremely successful. Today, 95% of the salon's colorists and stylists are comprised of students who graduated from Pilo's Masters Academy. 1986 Pilo ventured out to pioneer uncharted avenues by constructing a 3, 200 square foot Day Spa, whose posh and relaxing atmosphere was the first of its kind in Brooklyn. Further changes in the early 90's emphasized relaxation, and thus innovative services were introduced. 1998 The salon undergoes a $800, 000 facelift. The d cor reflects the coming of a new age, the millennium. It incorporated practical aspects of functionality, productivity, environmental awareness, and respect for the traditional marketing needs of glamour and elegance. A blend of Rome and the Orient, the salon incorporates earth tones, natural material, rice paper dividers, copper and steel workstations with light natural wood cabinetry and Bella Terra floors. It is truly gorgeous! 1999 Pilo Arts was granted admission into Intercoiffure, the nation's elite organization for salons. Membership into Intercoiffure is highly prized. Salons recognized by Intercoiffure bring artistry and style into the fashion world. 1999 Pilo Arts was granted admission into the International SPA Association ( ISPA ). To achieve member status, Pilo's Day Spa had to meet high standards of excellence in the Spa Industry and pledge to abide to the ISPA Code of Ethics. 1999 Pilo Arts was accepted into Salon Today 200 and recognized as one of the top 200 Salons in North America, not only for its growth but for the standards that it sets in the beauty industry. 1999 Pilo Arts is recognized for donating over $100, 000 in services a year to charitable organizations and civic groups.

I went to get a single process and they did a horrible job !! My hair was brown with reddish tint and my roots were coming out natural hair is light Goldish ash brown .. I asked them if they can get me light ash brown to blend with my roots they said they can do it.. anyway they claimed they used level 6 of ash brown and the result was : my hair CAME OUT too DARK almost a BLACK color !! They promised I would go lighter and I ended up with color way darker than when I walked into the salon !! I will never forgive this shity treatment !! And they even charged me extra claiming that they used color correction ! Screw that !



Horrible make up

The make up artist was awful she had no idea what she was doing she was so unprofessional. She was more concerned about showing her coworkers you tube videos then doing my make up.when my make up was done I looked like a clown. I told her I wanted it for a wedding because I was a bridesmaid. So y would she put do much color. I hade to get or redone as soon as I left. The owner was just as bad. She made many comments to me that I felt was inappropriate. Ido not recommend this place.

Brooklyn's Lovely Little Oasis

I have been going to this tranquil oasis for many years now, and it never fails to provide me with a pick-me-up. Not only is it THE place for relaxing aromatherapy massages and facials, it definitely has earned its ranking as one of the Top 5 Color Salons in New York State every year since 2007 -- a proud achievement and no small feat, considering Pilo Arts is competing with some of the world's trendiest Manhattan colorists! But most of all, I love the service. The management takes note of every guest and does their utmost to make each person feel special. Definitely worth a trip!

Mo is one of the best hairstylists

I have been going to Pilo Arts for many years and have always gotten great cuts and color. However, my regular stylist was absent due to pregnancy and I was given Mo as my colorist and stylist. He is GREAT. I got such a great haircut and the color is fabulous. I praise him highly for his talents and his ability to please his customers. Thanks Mo!!!!!

Pilo arts

After searching for several years, I have finally found a salon which provides me with all the necessary facilities and accommodations that I need when it comes to getting a decent haircut. Pilo arts provides a terrific ambience with warm and friendly staff members whose main function is to assist clients to feel comfortable and relaxed while having their hair styled by some of the best stylists on this planet. I was fortunate enough to reconnect with Danielle, a kind and talented hair stylist, who I had the pleasure of working on my hair for some time when she was at another salon. Clearly her ability has improved significantly, and I am thrilled to have found her at pilo arts in bay ridge brooklyn. I can highly recommend Danielle to anyone who wants a professional hair treatment from one of the best stylists in this City. For any female who wants to receive only the best will want Danielle for this purpose. Don't wait another moment. Get on over to pilo arts Salon quickly as possible....!!

Can't get enough of this salon!

Love coming to this place.
Always welcomed with a hot cup of coffee.

Always on time with my appointment.
Just a comfortable salon.

I had a mani pedi birthday party for my sister here.
They bent over backwards for us.

I cant wait to go back and treat myself.

I just moved to Brooklyn from Manhattan to raise a family and was of course worried about finding a close to home salon.
My hair is hilighted and layered cut.
My neighbor said the only place to go is Pilo. So I took a chance and walked in to make the appointment.
Very pretty decor and some smiley faces.
I said to myself ""This is good"".
So I asked if they could take now. I lucked out.
Their colorist Don had a cancelation and took me rite away.
I wont bore u with the details. But after he did his magic with foils and some sort of low lites he escorted me over to a stylist named Nina.
The consultation was great and she did her magic with her scissors.
As she was finishing Don came over to check his work.
The haircut complimented the color and visa versa!
Before i left i booked a massage for my husband in their spa.
I highly recommend this place.

Keep Your Brooklyn Location

Shame on me. Tried Pilo long time ago and dissatisfied. Tried ago a few weeks ago and no change. Don, the para colorist was late and not fashionably late. He came in with his coffee and something to eat. Went to huddle in a corner with his goodies, got on his cell, looked at his watch at least 3x, then walked around the salon like he was on a runway. When he came over to my chair he said ""so what are we doing"". Don played the little game of a 2 second move the hair around and came out with a color. He slopped it on my roots in approximately 8 minutes. After the shampoo I never saw him again. Usually colorists check the color of their clients. Not Don, after all he's a master colorist. Whatever that means. Then came Anthony, the stylist. Gave him a picture and a verbal explanation. He couldn't get it right. As soon as I got home I washed and styled my hair. It came out the way it was in the pix I gave Anthonly. I then noticed that Mr. Master Colorist left some of my roots grey. I didn't bother to call Pilo since I would never go back again. I'll stick to New York City Salons and pay the price. So now you know why Pilo is in a borough and not in NYC. Sort of like food, those who go to Pilo eat Burger King, those who use top salons eat at Daniels.

I travel all the way to Brooklyn for Pilo

I live in New Jersey but travel for my hair appointments to Brooklyn for Jayne Chillo at Pilo. The environment is always welcoming, I've never not been offered multiple drinks or food while waiting for Jayne (which has never been long either). The salon is clean, comfortable, stylish, and always friendly. It is always a pleasure to go and relax at Pilo. I look forward to my trips there because I always feel pampered.

Jayne tried her first ombre treatment on me and I loved it! It was first done last March and has still stayed until now. I let Jayne suggest me what she thinks will be a good fit for my hair and color and after so long as her customer, I completely trust her skill and opinions. She has the ultimate ombre expertise! She is educated and trained with the best and even does shows to present her work and teach. Jayne has never steered me wrong with my hair.

My name is Julia and I am a creative stylist at Pilo arts. I have been working here for about 1 year and a half and I am so proud to tell people where I work. Despite what many may believe, Pilo's staff is very down to earth and welcoming. That is one of the many reasons why I love coming to work every day... Also because we are one of the top 5 color salons in the state of New York, and we are a part of the Intercoiffure Mondial !

I'm not going to sit here and bore you with stats about our salon but I am going to tell you this... Every client that walks through the door is greeted with open arms and a smile ... I love what I do and I feel every guest that I come in contact with I make sure we choose a style and/or color that suits not just their face and style but there personality and life style as well.

Hey! My name is Angelica. I am...

Hey! My name is Angelica. I am one of the lovely ladies behind the front desk. I have been working at Pilo for almost seven years.

I have had the pleasure of seeing the transitions of hairstyles through these years. . I absolutely love this field and think that Pilo offers the best and lateset services in the neighborhood.

Our stylists constantly attend classes to educate themselves with different techniques. Our front desk girls go out of their way to satisfy the client any way possible. We offer a calm, organized atmoshpere and want everybody to feel comfortable. We are a big happy family and include all of our clients in it. Make sure to ask about our great promotions!!!!



My name is Juliette, I am a fr...

My name is Juliette, I am a front desk receptionist at Pilo Arts and love every minute of it.

I pride myself as being understanding and accommodating to client needs. Pilo Arts is what it is today because of the experience you get when you are in the salon.

When clients call to make appointments, sometimes they don't even know what they want, but they have an idea of what they're trying to. I do my best to understand what you want and how you want it to apply the absolute best people of our staff to fit your individual needs.

The salon is a place of relaxation, friends and family. With such a strong and loving staff, clients have found a family within Pilo Arts and I have never had a position I love more. I am able to help clients get everything they want and more out of their time at Pilo Arts.

I see reviews of Pilo being over priced. You have to remember that when you choose Pilo Arts as your salon, your not just choosing a blow dryer and a chair. Pilo Arts is the city-like, up-scale, professional, relationship based salon of Bay Ridge where you are pampered, taken care of and "beautified".

I have never found more of a home in a salon as I have at Pilo Arts. Your front desk girls are your "salon agents" setting you up with everything you are looking for, reminding you of the amazing on-going promotions and your stylist is your professional, personal hair dresser that knows your hair, has a vision for your hair and knows how to handle it-- even when you dont.

Remember also that we have been consciously on-going with our promotions over this past year showing our clients that we are here for them. Our amazing promotions are endless. Just the other day I had a client telling me how much she appreciates my realism and help over the phone in setting her up with all of the appointments she needed. She has paid a large sum of money for her hair in the past and now with our promotions, I was able to save her a good amount and for that she was extremely grateful. There is no better feeling than hearing her tell me how happy she is with my help and the services she booked.

Pilo Arts is always, always innovating. Give us a call, sign-up for our e-mail promotions, or simply stop by to say hello and find out what new and exciting opportunities we are stirring up!
