Salon Fodera

It’s where the “Titans of Industry” talk and where the “Ladies who Lunch” linger. And it’s also a beauty haven for guests of its home inside the fabled St. Regis Hotel in Manhattan. Salon Fodera is a full service parlor in the lower lobby of the five-star hotel that has distinguished itself as classical yet modern, offering its clients the latest in hair design, color, cuts and beauty treatments. Led by Joe Ancona, the salon is a throwback to a more civilized era when clientele gathered for personal, customized treatments while sharing with Ancona and his design team thoughts on politics, sports and news of the day. Loyalists to the salon include News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch, investment guru Carl Icahn, talk show host Larry King and an assortment of leaders in media, politics and business.
