Our Team

The Beauty of Our Team's Approach

What drives the DiGrigoli team? Passion. Our stylists love what they do and it shows in the way our clients look and feel when they leave.

Unlike salons that simply rent out booth space, we function as a team. If your personal stylist is ever unavailable, you can feel comfortable trusting any one of our other stylists to provide you with the cut, color and high level of service you have come to expect at DiGrigoli Salon.

Book a Stylist

 

Assistant:

Not quite ready to take on clients of their own, our assistants give shampoos and apply products for other stylists, while picking up valuable skills from observing the more experienced members of the team.

Junior:

These stylists are beginning to build their clientele and their confidence about working independently. They are capable of doing haircuts and coloring for men and women and creating their own color formulations under the watchful eye of one of our Master or Elite stylists.

Senior:

Our Senior Stylists have achieved a high level of artistic ability and have developed great consultation skills. Their competencies in cutting and coloring means they are able to work independently, backed up if and when they need to be by Master and Elite stylists.

Master:

The next level up in experience, these stylists have mastered the techniques and developed the artistic ability to create their own cuts, colors and make-up. They have a developed knowledge of the balance and weight of the hair, and an understanding of bone structure. Ready to provide a transformation or full make-over, they are knowledgeable in the art and science of cosmetology.

Elite:

The top-of-the-line designers on our artistic team, Elite Stylists have a tremendous amount of experience dealing with any and every aspect of the hair industry. With superlative cutting and coloring skills, they never miss the opportunity to mentor others and teach junior stylists new techniques for dressing hair. Elite Stylists are capable of taking someone from long to medium to short hair, not to mention experts at color correction.

The Artist:

The Artist is the highest level of stylist at DiGrigoli Salon. These stylists have extensive experience in all areas of cutting, color, hair treatments, updos, and more, and have mastered these techniques over the course of many years. Due to the demand for their services and their large clientele, they are always booked solid (so make your appointment in advance!) They also understand that learning never stops and they continue to advance their education, their knowledge of current trends/techniques, and are keenly aware of changes in the cosmetology industry. And their work? Well the name says it all – it’s art!
