Hi guys! I’m Crystal, owner of Salon Crystallia. I will give you a little background on the salon and me, as long as you promise to introduce yourself to me if we ever cross paths!
I grew up with the best group of neighborhood kids anyone could ask for in Hilton, New York. I am the oldest of two, with one stubborn little sister I love to death and typical overbearing Italian parents who would support anything I ever wanted to do in life. I have countless cousins I grew up extremely close with, and to this day, remain close to. I’m an auntie to many, a friend, sister, daughter, grandchild, dog-mom, girlfriend, and co-worker. I have been lucky to know so many amazing people throughout my life!
After I graduated from Hilton High School in 2001, I went on to beauty school at Shear Ego International School Of Hair Design, where I graduated in 2003. I also took classes at MCC and a small community college in Orlando, Florida, for Business Management & Marketing.
If you asked me when I was a little girl what my favorite color was and what I wanted to be when I grew up, the answer would have been purple and a hairdresser. I would do my friends’ little sister’s hair and my little sister’s friends’ hair for the eighth-grade night, prom ﹣ you name it.
In my early 20s, I became a cosmetologist working at a full-service salon and spa called Vibe. I provided hair & skin services for about two years.
I am not gonna lie; I wasn’t in love. I ended up moving to Florida, where my license didn’t transfer. I worked as a spray tanner and a bartender. After about a year, I came home just doing hair for friends and family and ended up working at a couple of local barbershops. I decided cutting men’s hair was my knack. I ended up turning a spare bedroom in my house off Winton Road into a cutting room. This was the “original” Salon Crystallia seven years ago. At this time, I had no intentions of ever owning a salon or expanding.
After about four years, I moved to the Bluffs in Webster, relocating, and slightly expanding Salon Crystallia. At this point, I was working in my basement, definitely more functional than the original! Although I was still the only person working, I had the opportunity to go back to school and expand my services. This was when I found my true passion in the industry: SKINCARE!
I planned to be a stay-at-home mom working part-time alongside Baby Capone, my Rottie. After about a year, things didn’t exactly go as planned. Capone and I moved out, but we still worked from that location for a little over a year. I also went back to bartending. Working from the Webster location wasn’t really working out, nor was bartending. On St. Patrick’s Day 2019, I was pushed over the edge… I told myself I would never surround myself with such miserable, mean, vindictive, horrible humans ever again in my life. I would rather be poor and happy.
May 5th, 2019, the current location of Salon Crystallia opened. In less than one year, I had built the dream team. I can’t say enough good things about my work family! Not only are each one of them beyond talented and passionate about their work, but they are also kind, genuine, amazing people. Not one day feels like work.
I owe this amazing year to YOU! We wouldn’t have anything. We wouldn’t have gotten through our first year and many years to come. We wouldn’t have our dream job without your love and support, our amazing clients, friends, family, neighbors, Brighton Chamber, Galvin Realty, our better halves, and the list goes on. I personally can’t thank you all enough.

Hydro Jelly Facial
The Hydro Jelly Facial is made from botanical algae and infused with electrolytes. Once solidified, the jelly creates a vacuum-like seal, forcing all the nutrients to penetrate the skin’s barrier, leaving the skin intensely hydrated.
BB Glow Facial
The best facial all around town! This facial includes micro-needling, dermablading, a carboxy mask, polypeptide infusion, deep pore cleansing, nano-needling, a collagen mask and a semi-permanent mineral based pigment infused into the skin. This lasts up to 7-9 months of medium coverage foundation.
Dermablade treatment allows your products to penetrate and work deeply by removing vellus hair (peach fuzz) and the epidermis layer of skin (dead skin), leaving your face feeling silky smooth.
Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. The best thing you can do for your skin to preserve its youth. This service triggers collagen production, improves skin’s elasticity, minimizes pores, evens the skin tone and diminishes fine lines.
