Personal Style: Mario Russo

Web Editor | July 10, 2011 | 7:08 PM

Winner of more than 10 “Best of Boston” 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 preppy—tailored 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 Harry’s 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 ways—from styling to conditioning.   
 
I AM INSPIRED BY: Contemporary artists—my current favorites are Sol LeWit, father of conceptualism, and Julian Opie.
 
THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE: When I arrived in the U.S.— 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.
