AVEDA Concept Salon


Owner, Patricia Hurst, has trained in England at the London Studios for hair and make-up as well as with Vidal Sassoon in California, and continually updates her technique through various Aveda classes and seminars in New York and Minneapolis. Pat has been in the hair styling business for over twenty-five years, and has had her own salon since 1986. Environmental issues are at the forefront of Pat’s own life and nothing goes to waste at Sparx.


She is passionately devoted to her business, and the manner in which it enables her to be more involved in animal rights and rescue efforts. Pat’s canine “daughter,” Whitney, is our hostess as well as baby sitter and helps provide a warm and loving atmosphere.


A Sparx experience revitalizes the senses and awakens the mind. Come in and taste our fresh Aveda comforting tea, while listening to soothing music. Our pure plant aromas will relax your body while enjoying our wide selection of services.


   "Aveda Concept Salons provide innovative services and offer extraordinary products created from organically grown plants and renewable resources-with out animal testing. Our aim is to improve quality of life with humane business, social and ecological practices that foster a healthier lifestyle and environment."

The Woman of Sparx

Cindy Zuna Working at Sparx as a junior stylist and makeup artist has given me the opportunity to follow the footsteps of the Aveda Institute and the teachings of Vidal Sassoon in the most exciting techniques and styling which are the hallmark of Sparx. I’m continuing my education with Aveda and enjoying the lovely community of Pleasantville.

Our staff makes a point of attending advanced Aveda seminars, as well as jewelry and accessories shows at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.
