Winner of more than 10 âBest of Bostonâ awards, this successful owner of three salons (two in Boston, one in Vermont) shares his success story.
I WENT GREEN BECAUSE: It will protect the children of our future. We must make constant strides in our everyday lives to better the environment. HOW TO KEEP THE SALON GREEN: I serve coffee to my clients in glass cups; promotions and client appointment reminders are done via e-mail, not on paper; we use energy-efficient light bulbs; we recycle all product bottles.
MY LOOK RIGHT NOW: European preppyâtailored with a twist on classic styling.
MY FAVORITE PLACE TO SHOP: Louis Boston and Paul Smith.
WHAT I WEAR TO WORK: I usually wear dress slacks, a cotton button-down shirt and comfortable, stylish shoes such as Harryâs of London.
THE BEST HAIR LOOK I EVER DESIGNED: A deconstructed bob, where shag meets bob.
MY SALON IS SPECIAL BECAUSE: We are committed to exceeding in customer service along with a staff that is talented and expertly trained and skilled. MY FAVORITE PRODUCT: My Mario Russo Once A Day Spray because it works for all hair types and can be used in many different, unique waysâfrom styling to conditioning.
I AM INSPIRED BY: Contemporary artistsâmy current favorites are Sol LeWit, father of conceptualism, and Julian Opie.
THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE: When I arrived in the U.S.â we are blessed to be on this soil everyday.
I AM A HAIRDRESSER BECAUSE: I love working with people and fashion and this allows me to combine both.
