Founder & Master Stylist/Colorist
Meet Matthew. Avenue145 Founder and Master Stylist, Matt has been in the hair industry for over 20 years. Matthew came up from the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon on 5th Avenue when he was 21 years old, and he came with a vision. That vision was to open a salon in Westchester and was committed to building a team of like-minded talented professionals.
After eight years of working together, Matthew teamed up with fellow colleague, Christina Pestone, brought that vision to life, and opened Avenue145.
Matt is a master at his craft. With certifications in multiple brands of keratin treatments, his talent is undeniable. From Balayage and highlighting techniques, to on-trend haircuts and styling for men and women, Matthew understands that trends are continuously changing and staying up-to-date on new techniques is his responsibility to his clients; always bringing them the most current looks, leaving his chair looking and feeling good.
His positive energy is infectious. “Every day I wake up with a grateful heart no matter what, it’s just who I am. Through my personal experiences, I love to give back to anyone that crosses my path. In our industry, I believe that knowing what clients want, even when THEY don’t know what they want, is our job. From the second they walk into our salon to when they leave, a first-class experience is a must.”
“We have an incredible team of talented, passionate people and I assure you, your experience will be 5-star!”
