Barber tools are not toys. But even as a child, Dennis Marquez couldn’t resist playing with his father's set of barber tools in the attic, as he told Wellington the Magazine in 2008. This early admiration led Dennis to train at many prestigious hair schools including Vidal Sassoon in London. More than 35 years ago, Dennis and his wife, Kristina, opened the first Pizzazz Hair Design. The venture succeeded: their business has grown to include five separate salons, many of which have gained praise from NBC 5. Each salon’s stylists, armed with Redken and GKhair products, consult with men, women, teens, and children before revamping their manes with cuts, foil highlights, and hair-smoothing treatments. At the adjoining spas in three of the five salons, technicians paint nails with OPI polishes and cleanse skin with botanical-based Pevonia products.
To stay up to date on current hair trends, each salon's beauticians attend continuing-education courses and dissolve fashion magazines older than three months in jars of barbicide. The Pizzazz team also gives back to the community by donating a portion of salon proceeds to the Adopt-A-Family organization.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are the only 100% Vegan, animal cruelty free, 7-free, and fume free salon in Sarasota and surrounding areas. We only use vegan and 7-free polishes.
We also use Bio Seaweed Gel Polish, this is a chip free "two week manicure".
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After working at a local, popular, large "all natural, fume free nail salon" I found that most clients were missing the personal attention by their technician.
Other clients were on their cell phones, babies were crying, etc. I was so booked that it felt like an assembly line and impersonal.
What do you love most about your job?
My clients! This may sound cliche' but I am so fortunate to have the most amazing clients!
I enjoy watching you smile and relax... if only for an hour or so.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Tears! Sometimes my clients are going through hard times and they need someone to talk to. I get the best hugs!
Another client posted on Instagram and said I was the "Best nail tech, hands down, in Sarasota!"
That's why my clients are awesome!
