Eva Mrizaj takes over management of New York Hair Salon, keeps same staff


On Jan. 22, Eva Mrizaj took over management of the six-year-old New York Hair Salon from Victoria Roldan, who is planning to retire in about five years.

Roldan “still works here,” said Mrizaj. “Everything’s the same, the same staff and everything. She just wanted to slow down and slowly retire.”

Mrizaj has two years of hairstyling experience in Europe and 18 years in New York working at other salons, the Country Club in the Bronx and at clients’ homes during the pandemic. She said she had been looking for a place to start fresh when the opportunity with New York Hair Salon came along.

“I’ve lived here for the past seven years and I’ve gotten to know a lot of Pelham moms and clients and they became good friends and clients during Covid because I was doing their hair at home for a year or so,” said Mrizaj. “After everything opened up after Covid, they would come to my other salon, and now that they’re here, they’re all excited that I’m here. They love the space.”

According to Mrizaj, the salon attracts clients from Pelham, New Rochelle, Yonkers, Scarsdale and Eastchester.

“I have girls that come from everywhere,” said Mrizaj.

Mrizaj has been a Pelham mom for seven years and has been involved in Hutchinson and Prospect elementary schools.
