Welcome our newest team member, Nicholas Carbonaro

We are pleased to announce that Master Stylist, Nicholas (Nick) Lawson Carbonaro, originally from Sunnyside, Queens has joined our styling team! Nick graduated from Ithaca College in 2002 and is excited to return to Ithaca as one of our expert hair stylists. Nick’s styling inspirations are born from his many years exploring theatre and fine arts in NYC. His past work experience includes Madame Tussaud’s NYC, Broadway (Xanadu), Opera, RSC, Ouidad (curly hair specialist), drybar (the perfect blowout), Hangar Theatre, Kitchen Theatre, and Off Broadway.

SPECIAL OFFER: If you book a cut or color appointment with Nick by August 8 (appointment to be scheduled for anytime in the month of August) you will receive 20% off that service. *Cannot be used with other offers or sales.

We aren’t one to gossip, but… Nick’s recent client said,

“It’s amazing that after 10 years in NYC I had to come to Ithaca to find someone who “gets” my hair. Nick has helped me make the most of my curls; he’s part stylist, part teacher. When Nick cuts and styles my hair I feel at my best and I have the tools to maintain my look between appointments. I would follow Nick anywhere.” ~Stacey Lehman


I opened Transformations Hair and Body 20 years ago with a goal to serve our guests by creating a sublime experience that would exceed their expectations and to create a team that shared my dream. I believe I’ve achieved that goal. I am in awe everyday when I see my team creating and going beyond our guest’s expectation of their vision of how they wanted to look and feel. When I asked each of my team why they wanted to be in this profession, each of them said because they wanted to make people feel and look great!
