Joseph, John & Joey Scandizzo.
If you ask me, I think one of the most sensitive relationships a woman can potentially have (outside of her family & friends) is with her hairdresser. I for one in the past haven’t been the perfect client and have had my hair cut once or twice and never returned to a salon – without any explanation. Not even a discount can entice me back.
Having the right hairdresser is as good as finding the perfect LBD or the perfect pair of jeans – where the ultimate goal is the FAB factor. The 45-60 minutes spent in a salon could easily turn a sour mood into complete rejuvenation. I’m pleased to say that I have been going to the Joey Scandizzo Salon for about 7 years now. John Scandizzo is my mane man.
I could write an essay on why I’ve stuck to the salon for many years, but I promised to limit my word limit (!)) But allow me to make mention of the consistent customer service and the friendly approach. It’s also a hub of creativity.. The smiling and satisfied clients – it’s contagious. And there is a good reason why they have won numerous awards year after year.
I usually have my hair straight 99% of the time but John can convince me to go crazy and curly. I’m a different person as soon as I walk out of the salon, and I have a certain skip and bounce to my step.
Enough said. Bad hair day averted. Phew. Drum roll, here’s my interview with John.

If you weren’t in the industry, what would you be doing instead?
