Rossano Ferretti — the master behind the beauty industry’s revolutionary “Method” haircut — has transformed the way the world sees hair. For Ferretti, hair care isn’t just his profession, it’s his lifelong passion. In fact, some would say that his love for hair runs in his blood.
Born in Italy, Ferretti grew up watching both his grandfather and mother style hair. After taking an interest in the profession, he enrolled in his first hairdressing course at 14. Now, more than four decades later, Ferretti has established an empire that stands at the forefront of the beauty industry. With more than 20 locations, his salons can be found in some of the most prominent locations around the world including Rome, Miami, Abu Dhabi, Paris, Dubai, and, of course, New York City.
HudsonMOD recently had the opportunity to meet Ferretti and experience his Manhattan-based salon. Residing on the 19th floor of the Fuller Building, the hair spa is outfitted with sleek black-and-white decor and provides stunning views of Madison Avenue.
While Ferretti’s salons offer numerous luxury hair care treatments such as single process coloring, highlights and blowouts, the greatest (and most notable) service is the iconic Method haircut.
The innovative technique, which was developed by Ferretti and his sister Lorenza, took years to formulate. Utilizing patented scissors, stylists (who are trained by Ferretti) cut to enhance the hair’s natural fall. The Method leaves guests with such a natural-looking, voluminous style that it’s often referred to as the “invisible” haircut.
If you don’t have the time to experience a Rossano Ferretti Hair Spa for yourself, don’t fret. You can still indulge in his ingenious treatments at home with products from his Rossano Ferretti Parma line. The collection features a variety of treatments including rejuvenating hair masks, shampoos and conditioners, protective spray, anti-frizz serums and mousse, just to name a few. Three products were recently added: the Vita rejuvenating shampoo and mask, and the Favoloso mousse that is made with no gas.
Just like the Method, Ferretti dedicated years to developing his haircare line, ensuring that it would infuse customers’ luscious locks with the most beneficial ingredients. Each product is cruelty-free and is formulated without sulphates, parabens, formaldehyde or SLS.
The packaging is equally as luxurious, mirroring the black-and-white aesthetic of his salons, and is stamped with the phrase, “Made in Italy for you, with love.” You can view and purchase the entire Rossano Ferretti Parma line on sephora.com.
