Frank Marino
Owner/Colorist
FRANK ALWAYS KNEW HE NEEDED A CREATIVE OUTLET SO AFTER QUITTING HIS JOB AS AN AUTO MECHANIC HE SERENDIPITOUSLY FELL INTO THE HAIR WORLD. AND HERE HE HAS STAYED FOR 18 YEARS, FINALLY FEELING THAT HE FOUND HIS CALLING.

TRAINED AT THE VIDAL SASSOON ACADEMY IN SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA AND AT THE GOLDWELL ACADEMIES IN BALTIMORE, MARYLAND AND ROCKYHILL, CONNECTICUT, FRANK QUICKLY BECAME A COLOR GURU. SO MUCH SO THAT HE WAS GIVEN THE NICKNAME “THE TRASH MAN” DUE TO HIS ABILITY TO FIX EVEN THE WORST OF COLOR CATASTROPHES. FRANKS MAIN CONCERN IS THE INTEGRITY OF THE HAIR THEREFORE HE WILL NEVER DO ANYTHING TO YOUR TRESSES THAT WOULD BE DAMAGING. “SOMETIMES I HAVE TO GENTLY EXPLAIN TO A CLIENT WHY SHE CAN’T HAVE THE COLOR SHE WANTS BECAUSE THE PROCESS WILL DESTROY HER HAIR. THIS IS RARELY AN EASY THING TO HEAR WHEN YOUR HEART IS SET ON SOMETHING BUT AFTER I AM THROUGH EXPLAINING WHAT IS POSSIBLE THEY ARE VERY GRATEFUL THAT I TOOK THE TIME TO EXPLAIN IT. I PERSONALLY DON’T SEE THE POINT OF DOING A COLOR IF YOUR HAIR IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE STRAW.” “ONE OF MY GREATEST PLEASURES IS MAKING OTHERS FEEL GREAT ABOUT THEMSELVES, AND I FEEL THAT I AM GIVEN THIS OPPORTUNITY EVERYDAY WHEN I AM WITH MY CLIENTS. NOTHING TOUCHES MY HEART MORE THAN WHEN SOMEONE TELLS ME THAT WHAT I DID HAD A PROFOUND IMPACT ON THEIR SELF-ESTEEM. I AM SO BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO DO WHAT I LOVE.”
