Former Warren resident Andrea DiMauro recently expressed, “When I lived in Warren I conveniently discovered Edina and she helped me to define a distinct personal and professional style. For the past four years I have traveled two hours to her salon because I find her to be an especially sensitive and intelligent stylist, and now I consider her a dear friend.” Woodbury resident Grace Aarons commented, “I have known Edina for a number of years and she is very special in fulfilling whatever her clients need.

At the 13 Church Street location, Cosmetique Salon features a very impressive line of naturally-organic skin and hair products. “My focus is on providing only high quality, all-natural products,” Psorn explained. “One of my favorite line is Yon-KaParis because 70% of Yon-Ka products are composed of more than 90% natural ingredients. Every Yon-Ka product is formulated with four botanical therapies of aromatherapy, herbal medicine, marine plant extracts and natural fruit acids to promote healthy cell turnover.
We also use and sell Pureology’s anti-aging hair care products which are all organic. Many people don’t realize it but their hair ages along with the skin. The aging process of hair is accelerated when treated with harsh chemicals and exposed to the sun.

They are proven to enrich skin with anti-aging benefits provided from marine and botanical ingredients,”

In addition to owner Edina Psorn, Cosmetique Salon is staffed by hair stylists Bonnie Lathrop of New Milford and Kristina Checchia of Brookfield. These two stylists specialize in hair care and nail services upon request, and they are both very popular with Cosmetique clients. “We have a very lively, welcoming atmosphere here,” stated Psorn. “We also have wonderful relationships with several of our neighbors in the Church Street vicinity including Louisia Amaral, owner of Ruth Chase Flowers who frequently brings flowers for our salon as a gift. The owners of Ameico Inc., purveyors of innovative 20th and 21st century original and contemporary products, Peter Kahane and Jeannette Purdy. They are all exceptionally wonderful neighbors.”
