About Us

Founded over 40 years ago by Michael and Carmella Arra and Michael’s brother Jack Arra, the first salon opened in Lyndhurst, Ohio and was an immediate success with the upscale east suburban clientele. With the talented and artistic leadership of the two brothers, the salon soon outgrew its location and expanded into the Eastgate Shopping Center in Mayfield Heights. The Chagrin Falls salon opened in the early 70’s with a Great Northern Mall salon in North Olmsted and then a salon in Hudson. Eventually, as the families grew, Michael Sr. and his sons consolidated into the now doubled-in-size Chagrin Falls Salon and Spa, and Carmella now owns her own permanant cosmetic makeup salon in Chagrin Falls, Jack Sr. moved his family business north to Lake County.

The Chagrin Falls Salon has been enormously successful and is now led very ably by Michael Jr. and his brother Jack Jr. Michael Jrs.’ wife Diana works along side the brothers and Michael and Diana’s daughter Michelle.

Michael and Jack have assembled a truly artistic, creative, knowledgeable and hard-working team of hair designers, massage therapists and estheticians capable of meeting a clients every need. The Arras hold continuing education classes on a regular basis, attend trade shows and ateliers throughout the year and last fall had two designers who attended FashionWeek in New York. They consistently bring the latest in trends and innovations to the salon, while staying attentive to the clients’ basic needs.
