When Denise Forte Ghiglia left a corporate career to own her own business and pursue a love for fashion, she knew just who to enlist to help women look beautiful and fashion forward. Inside the salon, a team that includes nine stylists, a lash artist, an aesthetician, and a nutritionist meet all facial, hair-cutting, coloring, and extension needs. A wide selection of fashion-forward clothes are also available in the boutique.
A student of both anatomy and physiology, Mindy Neal boasts certificates in personal training, holistic health, and nutritional counseling in addition to massage therapy. Mindy draws upon her multi-faceted training to help clients overcome pain, tension, and stress. In addition to Swedish and deep-tissue massage, she also offers reflexology and craniosacral treatments, pregnancy massage, and sports massage for athletes who have incurred injuries while on the field or retrieving a lost frisbee from the neighbor's roof.
After studying nailcare and cosmetology, Jennifer Sparveri helped build a successful Paul Mitchell Focus salon with her mom. After nine months of training, she became a certified Paul Mitchell national educator and later joined the Paul Mitchell Platform team. Then she moved to Las Vegas to work for A Robert Cromeans Salon and train new Paul Mitchell national educators?an endeavor that won her the title of master associate in 2009.
Now she owns Jennifer Andre Salon and helms a team of stylists who offer services for men and women. Their wash house?a separate, candlelit area?soothes clients with relaxing shampoo sessions, and tranquil music. When she isn't at her salon, Jennifer travels to other salons and beauty schools to teach and encourage aspiring stylists. She also has experience with the famous manes of Rachel Hunter, Star Jones, Tarina Tarantino, and Kimberly Stewart.

Shortly after completing his studies at Sassoon Academy in London and plying the hairdresser's trade in Dublin, master stylist Robert Quinn made the move to Boston. He soon began styling for local TV personalities, including TV journalist Kathleen Sullivan and 60 Minutes reporter Lesley Stahl, and he frequently appeared on the morning talk show A.M. Boston to share makeover advice with viewers.
Now at his own full-service salon and spa in Scottsdale, Quinn leads a team of more than 40 stylists, nail techs, and aestheticians as they cater to each client's needs. The team works with trusted product lines including L'Oréal, Kérastase, Pureology, Bumble and bumble., Phytologie, Aquage, Moroccanoil, and Kevin.Murphy.
Thomas Dwight hones his scissors, blowdryer, and skills at Zoltons Salon and Day Spa, where he joins a staff known for its collective creativity. Indeed, Zoltons has a reputation for being at the forefront on trends and has been tapped numerous times by the media to share their tips, including this Fox 10 feature on summer hairdos. With 5,000 square feet of space and including 40 hair stations, there's plenty of room to let creativity loose. Thomas specializes in spicing up hairdos with cuts, coloring, and treatments. His fellow stylists and aestheticians offer everything from hair design services to vegan facials and permanent makeup, the latter a treatment that renders morning makeup routines as obsolete as coin-operated websites.
