MARIO RUSSO

FOUNDER / STYLIST

71 PARK PLAZA

My journey into the world of hairstyling began at an early age, influenced by the artistry of design that surrounded me while growing up in Italy. However, it was during my teenage years in Boston that my passion truly took shape. Immersing myself in the vibrant punk music scene of the city was the ultimate spark that ignited my career as a hairstylist.

To refine my craft, I attended London’s esteemed Vidal Sassoon Academy. After London, I set my sights on Paris for an apprenticeship at the prestigious Harlow Salon, where I mastered the art of hairstyling techniques. Upon returning to Boston, I eagerly turned my dream into reality by founding my very first salon on Newbury Street. This marked the beginning of my incredible career in the world of hairstyling, a passion I’ve pursued ever since.

In the early 2000s, we expanded to a second location within the prestigious fashion retailer Louis Boston, seamlessly blending fashion and hairstyling. This partnership later evolved to the burgeoning Seaport neighborhood. Today, we have locations in the distinguished Heritage On The Garden in Back Bay and the vibrant Seaport district.
