Natural Beauty- Texture- Variation- Softness- And Shine

We Are Creating Great Hair In A Great Atmosphere!

Born during hurricane Donna, the Gale winds carried her to New York City in the early 1990's.  Apprenticing with the then "It" color guru Beth Minardi.

Taking what she learned on Madison Avenue to the relaxed, hip, chic environment of downtown- Donna was the colorist for Jason Croy Salon.  The roster read like a "who's who!?"

In 1997 Donna McNally opened her own boutique salon in the West Village, and after nearly twenty years on West Tenth Street she decided to grow further.  In 2016 she partnered with her daughter Ryan, opening La Cave Salon and Day Spa.

La Cave Salon offers the comfort and tranquillity unlike any other.  Located on Leroy Street; on the bend of the most beautiful block in   New York City, St. Luke's Place. We are truly proud to call this our  home.  Follow the red steps to our peaceful haven for a new hair style, a shellac manicure, a glass of vino or a hot cup of joe!
