about us

Nourish Hair & Body was born as a family business, between Head Stylist John Donadio and his wife Lydia Donadio, who is a Massage Therapist. John and Lydia are both very passionate about their professions, and have always had a very specific, client centered, holistic approach to what they do.  When the opportunity arose to combine their talents and create a space that embodied everything they loved; their shared aesthetic and their commitment to a high level of client care, they jumped at the chance.
Nourish is truly built on love, as well as John and Lydia's constant desire to remain well rounded and knowledgeable, in their professional and personal lives.  The level of service is just as important as the quality of work, which is why Nourish's motto is "Professional Staff, Personal Attention." The staff at Nourish strives to make every client feel comfortable, attended to and valued. Here at Nourish we hope your experience is more than the standard haircut, color work or massage.  Hair care and body work shouldn't be considered an errand or chore; they should be an opportunity to refresh and renew yourself. Our staff is ready for any challenge, and we are ready to meet any desire or goal you may have, so stop in to visit us today!

Our Team

John Donadio ~ Owner, Lead Stylist. Color speacialist. Geometric, Pixie, Bob design specialist.

Stacks Image 48

Nourish Hair & Body's Owner/Lead Stylist John Donadio was born into the business of hair. His mother's side of the family have all been very successful hair stylists, colorists and owners in the industry. This was the greatest influence on John's decision to enter the business. At 21, he graduated from the Northern Westchester School of Hair and Beauty. Upon graduating, he began his career at Saks 5th Avenue in White Plains.


Most recently, John has worked at Richard Scott Salon (Mt. Kisco) and Backstage Salon (Croton). These professional experiences and his loyal client base inspired him to take a big career step; opening a business that could embody his vision of an ideal salon. His desire for Nourish was to make an "artist's space" that was more intimate and personal. " I wanted a focused, learning atmosphere for myself and coworkers. Constantly evolving my techniques and sharing what i know with others is what keeps hairstyling fresh for me. As a musician, I 've drawn from many different styles to find my own sound. That's always my goal. My hair work runs parallel to my music as far as my creative process. Always working toward something... that's who I am."


John's goal when designing is focused on creating individual looks for his clientele. Natural looking color work and classic geometric haircutting is what he is best known for.

Lydia Donadio ~ Owner, Massage Therapist.

Stacks Image 70

Lydia’s path towards Massage Therapy began with previous career dissatisfaction and positive personal experiences with chiropractic, acupuncture and massage. Research into different schools led her to The Swedish Institute, one of the oldest and most highly ranked medical massage therapy programs in the country, located in Manhattan. After 1200 extensive in class hours of schooling, including classes in Anatomy, Physiology, Myology, Kinesiology, Neurology, Pathology, Swedish Massage, Shiatsu, Tui Na, Reflexology, Cranial Sacral, Lymphatic Drainage, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Therapy, Lydia graduated in 2009 with an Associates Degree in Medical Massage Therapy. Combined with a Bachelors Degree in Communications with a double minor in Visual Art and Human Development, Lydia was ready to begin working towards her goal of a owning a thriving, private practice.


Immediately after graduation, thanks to a fabulous recommendation from her clinic supervisor, a successful chiropractor in southern Westchester approached her with a job opportunity. For the next 2 ½ years Lydia worked with patients with every injury and malady, continued to perfect her approach to healing and established a loyal client base.


Within three years Lydia had a personal office in White Plains, where her practice continued to grow and become ever more diverse. Treating everyone from professional athletes, Olympic hopefuls, stroke survivors, people with serious back conditions, injuries and more, she has continued to hone her skills to heal and improve her clients’ daily life function. The chance to open a family business with her husband John seemed like the ideal next step in creating a space that embodied their shared aesthetic and desire for a level of care for their clients.

Staci Barton ~ Stylist. Colorist. Keratin treatment and updo specialist.

Stacks Image 260

Driven and dedicated from a young age, Staci has been on the fast track to a successful career in hair. She began her training and received her Cosmotogy License through the BOCES program in Yorktown while she was graduating Walter Panas High School.


Entering the salon world while still in high school as an assistant at The Cutting Edge in Yorktown, she quickly began to build a clientele when she graduated to stylist, thanks to her talent and professional manner.


When Staci came to Nourish, she had already been a stylist for two years. Here, she began as a junior stylist, developing her eye and perfecting her already impressive skill set with intensive color and classic geometric haircutting instruction by John. Consistent hard work and study has paid off. Staci is now a well rounded, full fledged stylist at Nourish. She is also our keratin and updo specialist (check our photo's for some of her gorgeous up-do's). Her color work with ombre and balyage techniques as well as fine weave foil work, is modern and refined.


Here at Nourish, learning, refining and evolving what we do as stylists and in our personal lives, is the norm. Staci's professional accomplishments embody what can be achieved by being driven to be great. At 21, this artist's knowledge and work is years ahead of the competition. She is a special talent and we are proud to call her part of our Nourish family.

Alissa Bennett ~ Licensed Esthetician, Skin care and waxing specialist.

Stacks Image 219

Alissa has been a licensed Esthetician since 2005, and a licensed Esthetics Instructor since 2009. In her practice, she sees a wide variety of clients ranging from individuals looking for relaxation to those in need of corrective treatment.  In addition to focusing on skin health and peels, she also specializes in brow design and all other hair removal.


Alissa was always interested in the beauty industry.  Before getting her Esthetics license, she received her Bachelor’s Degree from SUNY Oneonta in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing and her Associate’s Degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Fashion Merchandising Management.


She graduated from Capri Cosmetology Learning Center in Nanuet, NY and began working as an Esthetician at Angelface Day Spa in Yorktown Heights.  In 2009, she became an Esthetics Instructor at Capri Cosmetology in their new location in Newburgh NY. During that time, she also worked for American Laser Center doing laser hair removal and corrective laser facials in both their New City and White Plains locations. 


 After realizing how much she missed the individual focus, client interaction and hands on treatments she had enjoyed so much while working in spas, she went back to her roots, this time as Lead Esthetician at Facelogic Spa in Mount Kisco. Throughout the years, her main objectives for her practice have been centered on client care, product knowledge, and corrective treatments.


We are lucky to have such a knowledgeable and accomplished aesthetician join us at Nourish. Here, Alissa will individualize treatments, be it facials or waxing, for each client’s needs. Staying true to Nourish’s desire to provide only the best in quality for our clients, Alissa has carefully selected an organic and highly effective cosmeceudical product line, which works on the skin’s live tissue for gentle yet superior results.

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.

massage

Nourish offers a half hour session, focused on a specific area requested. This is a great way to try out our massage, or if you don't have an hour to devote, a great way to get specific work done to your problem area. This massage is still performed on a table, and will use both Swedish Massage techniques and acupressure point work. Some popular areas are the back and neck, legs and feet, or arms and neck. A great way to add a little pick me up to your day.

 

Nourish's Swedish Massage is a great way to reduce tension, improve health and help support your body's natural healing process. Swedish Massage uses a combination of long, sweeping strokes to warm the tissue and improve circulation, as well as deeper, specific work to break up adhesions ('knots'), realign muscle fibers and treat injuries such as tendonitis. Swedish massage can be very helpful in addressing TMJ and headache issues, improving athletic performance and increasing joint mobility and range of motion.  Our therapist loves when clients come to her with specific issues they want to address, and she will create a customized treatment plan based on the intake she does during your first session. Lydia uses a high quality, unscented lotion supplemented with Arnica extract, a natural plant derivative that reduces inflammation and speeds healing, as well as hot and cold therapies when needed. Book your session today! 

Shiatsu Massage is a form of acupressure, using the Twelve Meridian Five Element Theory found in acupuncture as well. Instead of needles, a client is treated using compression and specific point work along the meridians, along with stretching and joint mobilization.  The main goal of a Shiatsu session is to rebalance the energy of the body, known as Qi. When there is an imbalance in one or more meridian, it can affect the body in many manifestations. Physical pain, headaches, sleeplessness, food cravings, depression and anxiety are only some of the examples of imbalanced Qi. This treatment is very holistic, meaning it takes the whole person into account when determining a treatment plan.  Your therapist will ask you to come dressed comfortably to your appointment, as you remain dressed during your session. Your treatment will be performed on a mat on the floor. Your therapist can also perform a modified version on a table, if you have mobility issues and would be more comfortable getting on and off a table.  Get on the road to wellness with a Shiatsu session today!
