Ilena Conforti

Hello everyone! What an honor it is to express my creativity with my guests, at such an outstanding salon! Having been at Ruffolo's for over 13 years, has been an incredible journey. From 2001 to 2004, I was a receptionist. And it was in 2004, that I decided it was time for me to broaden my horizons in becoming a hairdresser! While attending Gateway Technical College, I apprenticed for just under a year, and soon after, developed a clientele of my own!
In 2009, I became Pureology certified. What that means, is I can recommend the very best hair care regimen for your specific hair type, educate you on how to take care of it, and PROMISE you longer lasting hair color! In fact, my 2 all time favorite products are Pureology's "Root Lift", for intense all over volume and lift at the scalp, and their strong hold hairspray, "Supreme Control".
In the Spring of 2010, I attended the Redken Exchange on 5th Avenue in New York City, which gave me the opportunity to learn some really awesome techniques and polished looks from some of Redken's most popular artists.
The latest addition to my career, has been sharing some of my talents with an asssociate of my own. This is my 4th year with an associate, and my goal is to help her grown into an absolutely phenomenal and confident hairstylist! I find it very rewarding to know that I can help her grow every day.
Being a part of the Ruffolo's team, is truly a blessing for me. I share the floor with some really amazing girls, and I look forward to making your experience here, one you will never forget.
