MEET TOM & JO

Tom

Born in NYC • First salon job was actually two – one on 57th St. and the other in the Five Towns. • The hairstylist I trained with on 57th St was one of the city’s top three at the time. He taught me how to be creative, that not everything had to be a formula • I’m most inspired by Italy, from ancient Rome to La Dolce Vita to now • “In this business, you always have to learn and I’m still learning” • Love TriBeCa’s artistic beginnings, its creative energy, the light, air and sky, the quiet • In my spare time I like to read, go to the theater, study Italian • Secret styling tip: listen to your clients • “A haircut is only perfect if the person wearing it feels good” • If I didn’t love cutting and styling hair, I’d be a therapist, real estate agent or architect • Always be honest, care for the people around you, and never lose your spiritual self

Jo

Born in NYC • First salon job was in SoHo in the late 1970s • Most inspired by the creative people I’ve met – painters, sculptors, designers – especially in those early years • Learned through my diverse range of clients how to communicate and get people to open up about what they want for themselves and their hair color • In my spare time I design jewelry, read non fiction and go antiquing • Secret color tip: “Try to enhance your natural color – apply highlights a shade or two from your natural color so you don’t have to repeat it in four weeks” • If I didn’t love the art of coloring, I’d design jewelry with colored stones • Sometimes in life you really do experience the kindness of strangers; since you can’t reciprocate with that person, you can repay them by passing it on to someone else
