I am the founder of Root 39 Salon & Spa, Inc. and an American Board of Certified Haircolorist. Being in the industry for more than 35 years, it is still new everyday. My passion grows and evolves with the opportunities presented at our salon and advising with the BOCES Cosmetology program. I still spend a considerable amount of time behind the chair with my guests, but enjoy supporting the stylists and staff in achieving their goals. Our internship program far exceeds NYS standards and is invaluable for any budding stylist. Please, be our guest.
