My name is Ruxandra Vasilescu. I am a professional with sharp cultural intelligence who graduated from City University of New York-Brooklyn College and I am a licensed cosmetologist.
My career spans over two decades in the beauty industry. I concentrate on specialty services such as hair color enhancements and color transformations, gray hair transitions, balayage, high impact blonding, as well as keratin smoothing treatments without formaldehyde and hair texture creation.
In 2014, the Cezanne hair brand launched a safe hair-smoothing keratin treatment. Based on its properties, Cezanne became my go-to frizz reducing, texture repair treatment.
No matter what the trend of the moment is, one thing is sure: your hair is my medium.
When I am not coloring hair, I grow things, write snippets of code, help business owners establish their presence in the digital space, flip stranded horseshoe crabs from Long Island beaches, and rescue birds from all sorts of troubles.
Hello to all our lovely patrons,
We hope this message finds you well. There has been a lot of bad news in the pandemic, including the recent closure of our beautiful oasis, Le Panache Loft. We warmly thank you for your business and your loyalty, whether we saw you there or elsewhere.
But here’s some good news! After numerous client requests, we are now offering color, cuts, and treatments in the beautiful outdoors. Yes, I have opened my backyard in Williamsburg temporarily for specific services; please reach out to me for details. Even more exciting, Kimberly and I are now making home visits if you have an outdoor space or a spacious room with good air circulation.
We will wear masks, and we ask that you do the same. If indoors, we also ask that only one person is in the room with Kimberly or me. I’m sure you understand. We want our clients to be healthy and beautiful!
We also ask that you be flexible. When necessary, you will need to wash your hair yourself to prepare it for the Cezanne hair smoothing treatment, or another service. Also, if you are new to us, we’ll ask you to send a few pictures of your hair in advance.
So, that’s our exciting news! We can’t wait to see you again! Please text me to book your appointment.
I couldn’t recommend Le Panache Loft more. Ruxandra is an absolute genius with color – especially for Platinum Blondes – she’s the best there is! My hair has never had such a beautiful, cool hue (no brass!), and retained so much moisture and health. She knows everything about the chemicals of color. Run, don’t walk, to see her for color, and Nathalie for cut!
Absolutely loved this place. First of all the salon is amazing and the owner is absolutely fantastic. But even more Ruxandra who does my hair is so great. I have been following her now for couple of years as she knows what she is doing, she does amazing colors, has tons of ideas and great technique and on top of it, she goes above and beyond to please you, make sure you leave the salon 100% happy. She is fantastic and I really cannot say enough good thing about her. Every time I see her is an absolute pleasure and I am always happy with my hair color/balayage whenever its done. Thank you Ruxandra!!
