Michael Robert Salon & Spa
Roots This newly remodeled 15-station salon has an inviting vibe with a cream-and-brown color scheme and tons of natural light. Owner and stylist John Boggi started working there in 1976 (it was then Victor’s Salon) and took over in 1997, so his clientele list is multi-generational.
Highlights Curly-haired customers flock to Boggi because he is Ouidad-certified, which means and knows how to enhance the natural pattern of curly hair. Plus, he is expertly trained in Ouidad’s trademarked Carve & Slice haircut and curly-hair styling techniques. “Some of my clients drive over an hour for my Ouidad cuts,” he says.
Cutting Edge Need a textured bob? Boggi is your guy. “This is one of the more popular cuts being requested these days,” he says. “I start off giving a precision cut and then I soften it up by texturizing it.”
Color Code Boggi’s team is focused on the ombre trend right now. Colorists gloss the hair after they color it to create a multidimensional look.
Star Stylist/Colorist “Sabrina is very skilled at applying SoCap fusion hair extensions,” says Boggi. “Many of her clients have fine or thinning hair, so she helps them add volume with the exensions.”
Gloss New clients receive a 20-percent discount on all services. The salon also supports and donates to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation because Boggi’s grandson has type 1 diabetes.
Heads Up Boggi plans to add junior stylists to the team. “I want to add new talent because they will bring new ideas with them,” he says. He also plans to remodel the salon in the near future.
