Why do you love what you do?
My passion for the art and creativity of hair started when I was a little girl. After more than 40 years of being in this industry, my passion, drive, and thirst for knowledge is still as strong today as it was when I first started.

What is “beauty” to you?
Like a beautiful frame around a picture, hair is the beauty that frames the face.

What do you love about Salone Estetica?
Everything! The dedication I have for this industry has allowed me to provide ownership to my salon for over 40 years. I love learning and educating. I love the artistic challenges of my profession but also the everyday challenges of owning a business. I truly believe that the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I love to sing and my stage name is Sofia!

What is your favorite quote?
“You can’t feel good if you don’t look good.”
