Setsuko Hosomi started styling hair when she was 9 years old. Growing up in Japan, the Scarsdale business owner got a taste of hairdressing while practicing on her sisters.
She began her professional beauty career in Tokyo styling hair after she graduated from high school until she was 23. She then packed up and moved to New York City, continued her career in NYC salons and freelancing as a hair and makeup artist, doing fashions and special events.
She has lived in Westchester for the past two decades and worked in Westchester for over 19 years including working for Jean Claude Salon, a renowned Westchester county’s beauty destination, in Scarsdale which she took over when Jean Claude retired years ago.
The Palmer Avenue beauty salon now called “Setsuko at Jean Claude” has full-time staff who cater to adults and children hair and makeups.
