The Hair Wharf opened at its current location in June 1976. John Gattucci had a vision to open a salon by the water when he stumbled upon Katonah and fell in love with this wonderful storybook town. Some years later, his wife Carol joined John in the salon. Although you will still see John and Carol working in the salon, the salon is presently managed and run by their daughter Jessica Morrison.
John grew up in an era of rock and roll and all things natural. His vision was one that would not impose glitz or pretension so upon entering the Hair Wharf, you’ll be greeted by feelings of warmth, laughter, and home. You will find on any given day fresh coffee and items homemade by clients and friends. Additionally, you will experience excellent quality hair styling, professionalism, and caring attention to make your look be something that you will not only love but know how to handle when you get home.
The salon uses only the best products with a range priced from low to high end. The staff although not related has a feeling of sisterhood and it is not uncommon for clients to be shared throughout the salon. Education is a big part of who we are and we go to classes, workshops and various academies for the latest training.
Your experience here will be one that we hope you share with your family and friends for years to come. You will be welcomed with warmth and become a part of this incredible salon that has stood the test of time. You will be the new generation, let us help you sculpt your own personal style that sets you apart from the rest.
“More than 20 years ago, I was first introduced to Carol and John Gattucci at what was a two-chair, warm and friendly salon called The Hair Wharf. I immediately felt at home. Now many years later, with a full staff of highly skilled stylists and expansion well beyond those two chairs, I still get that same warm, friendly feeling each and every time I arrive. Everyone greets you with a smile. They’re great listeners, which is truly a gift in their line of work. Their professionalism shines through consistently. They’re always on the cutting edge, keeping up with their own continuing education on the latest trends and products. I highly recommend The Hair Wharf to women and men, young and old. They truly care about their clientele and their community. Come see what the buzz is about! You too will love what you find there.”
