Hair Studio One, a long-time local family-owned business, just celebrated 50 years in business. Hair Studio One was originally started by Dan Martuscello Sr. in 1967 on the corner of Grove and Liberty Streets in Amsterdam. Back then it was simply known as Danny’s. In 1987 Dan Jr. was hired to manage the Amsterdam location. Within five years the business, it began to flourish offering tanning services and an increased focus on women’s services.
In 1992, Dan Jr. took over his father’s salon in Rotterdam and under his management, the company continued to grow with Dan Jr. acquiring Granville, Saratoga, Glenville, Glenmont, Brunswick, and Queensbury locations. Today a third generation is involved in the family business. Dan Jr.’s son Lucas is following in his grandfather's footsteps, offering barbering services in their Amsterdam location.
Over the past 50 years, Hair Studio One has grown from a one-chair barbershop, to 7 area full-service salons, offering Goldwell coloring, waxing, tanning and styling for both men and women. Always adapting to changes in the industry, Hair Studio One will soon be offering full body waxing, as well as skincare and eyelash extensions.
