Bosley Professional Strength issued a press release today:

Denise Ottomanelli, Director of National Accounts at Bosley Professional Strength, unexpectedly passed away in the early morning hours of November 4, 2015. She spent over 16 years in professional beauty and was an integral part of the Bosley Pro team for over three years. Prior to joining Bosley Pro, she also worked at Sexy Hair and L’Anza. Denise had an incredible talent for building strong and lasting relationships with her customers and friends from across the industry. She was also a daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother, whose grandchildren were the light of her life. She is deeply missed by her Bosley Pro family, by all of those who knew her and by all of those whose lives she touched. If you would like to make a donation in Denise’s memory to St. Judes (, the family has suggested that this would be an ideal way to remember her. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

“I had the great privilege of working with Denise for over 15 years.  She was so much more than just a colleague, we became the best of friends!  Denise was caring, devoted and ever so genuine.  Her legacy and passion for life will live on in the lives that she touched.”  – Margie Hill, Director of Business Development, Salon Innovations

“I was lucky enough to get to work with Denise at both Sexy Hair and Bosley Pro. She was a huge asset to us here at Bosley Pro and simply put, she was the “real deal”.  Genuine, hard-working, always looking out for her customers and always smiling. Our hearts are heavy. She is, and will be, greatly missed by our team and by all of those who knew her.” - Dev Rice, Director of Communications and Creative.
