The History of Dé-al Salon

Brothers Dean and Al Melchiorre envisioned an upscale suburban hair salon with a NYC vibe. In July of 1979, their vision was realized when they opened dé-al salon at 91 Middle Neck Road in Great Neck, NY on Long Island's Gold Coast. A two-story salon with a first-floor cutting/styling department and a second-floor color department. A modern salon where our Salon Coordinators, Stylists, Colorists and Associate staff focus on pampering and indulging every need of our clients. A salon whose highly skilled and talented staff would educate and train current and future generations of hair care professionals within. Dean, an award-winning hair cutter and Master Stylist, had keen intuition and a sharp eye for talent. Many of his most senior staff members have been with the company for decades. For 37 years, dé-al salon had been a staple of the Great Neck business community and the last word in hair fashion, but in November of 2016, it was time for an upgrade. We moved to a new space at 99 Middle Neck Road. Designed with a chic Urban Industrial aesthetic, the new modern space features high exposed ceilings, suspended linear lighting, exposed original brick, stainless steel stations and reclaimed wood cladding. Our new bright, open floor plan means the color and cutting/styling departments, now on the same floor function cohesively. We service and cater to clients from all over NY as well as NJ, CT and PA. Since 1979, dé-al salon has maintained its status as an enduring and recognized business and brand. And the legacy continues with the next generation. Olivia and Gail Melchiorre now lead the

dé-al salon team and are ready to grow the business and take it to the next level. Come grow with us.
