1st Anniversary — Ilda’s Salon and Spa

One year ago, Ilda Sampaio opened the quaintest, coolest and most comfortable salon right off of Main Street in Tarrytown – 11 Kaldenberg Place to be exact. Ilda’s Salon and Spa is housed in a small house that has all the charm of hardwood floors, a fireplace, light galore and welcoming appeal. The atmosphere is further enhanced by four hair stylists, one esthetician, two assistants and two receptionists, who all agree on one thing: “Everyone here gets along with everyone else and our customers are our family,” as per Ilda.

Ilda Sampaio has worked her way from an assistant in 1998, to a licensed hair stylist, on to a partner in another salon for ten years and finally to her very own salon since April 2015. When asked what means the most to her in her work she responded quickly and positively. “I like giving back to the community. We actually have a program where three or more clients can come in together for services and we will donate 10% of their bill to the non-profit organization of their choice. Last year we donated over $2200 to organizations helping others.”

That attention to helping others carries over to new clients as well, with a consultation offered to determine styling, coloring, treatments and make-up needs for the women the Salon serves. Classes are held on make-up application with a skilled esthetician, Sara Sampaio, who instructs on proper foundations to use and the contouring of makeup. “We can help women create a day look and an evening look,” Sara said. The classes are 1 to 1 ½ hours in length and all participants are contacted by the Salon for feedback and any further questions they might have.

Ilda’s Salon and Spa also serves a large number of men, children and entire families. “Last week I did the hair of a grandmother, her daughter and two granddaughters,” Ilda said. She also stated that her Salon is wheelchair accessible.
