Geared to the “under 21” set and contemporary in design, the space is a fusion of extreme sports and fashion. frank.studio junior offers haircuts, hair color, thermal hair straightening and styling as well as facials, waxing, manicures and pedicures for girls and boys. A teen dee-jay will spin tunes on Saturdays and Sundays, and junior is available for special events including runway birthday parties for girls, prom parties, mother/daughter and father/son specials. Exclusive services include the “Teen Acne” facial, specifically geared to teens/tweens with acne-prone skin; “Ultimate Rock Star” facial, which includes a junior facial, extractions and mask application, paraffin hand dip, and shoulder arm and foot massage; “Extreme Teen” facial (for 16 years and older), which includes a brow shaping; a Nail Bar featuring manicures, pedicures and a machine that does nail graffiti (daisies, sunsets, palm trees, photos from a digital camera, etc.); and temporary, wash-out hair color dyes in fun colors like pink, red and blue (they wash out in a couple of days).

Galasso’s line of shampoos, conditioners and styling products–named frank.studio “stuff”–focus on color or chemical-treated hair, and have been routinely featured in “Allure,” “Elle.” “Bazaar” and “W” and on Extra! and E! Television. The Red/Daily line, which includes a shampoo, conditioner and volumizer/anti-frizz styling product, is gentle enough for everyday use and scented with fresh green apples.

The Blue/Beach line features a treatment shampoo and conditioner, and innovative styling products that are scented with rich, just-off-the-beach coconut.
