A salon has opened on the Post Road in the Westfair Shopping Center across from Stop & Shop. Hair Innovations Design Team, 1779 Post Road East, was founded by owner Marlene Cox, who has 30 years of experience as a local master stylist and colorist and ongoing training at London's Vidal Sassoon Academy. Cox, from Trumbull, recently returned from training with European haircutter Tim Hartley, the academy's former international creative director, according to a salon news release

The salon's four other stylists -- Lynda Napoli, Erica Castagna, Marcie Ostensen and Krisztina Radvanyi-Godo -- were most recently at a Fairfield salon. Chung Huynh-Storch, Cox's business partner from Fairfield, who has a finance background, manages the salon and front desk.

The salon offers classic hair techniques and trendsetting designs such as all-natural straightening, texturizing, tinsel and feather extensions and multi-dimensional color. Haircut prices at the 1,100-square-foot shop with eight leather chairs start at $60, while color prices begin at $75, the release states.
