Our Staff


Lucia-Master Stylist/Owner

As a young girl, I always knew what I wanted to be "when I grew up." Hair had always been my passion.

I graduated from Blaine Hair and Beauty School in May 1990, and began my career as a stylist at The Salon A Cut Above. Little did I know at that time, that 4 years later, that same salon would belong to my husband and myself.
I enjoyed being in a field where I could make people look and feel better about themselves. I can truly say that, " I love what I do."

Always striving to better myself and perfect my skills, ongoing education was key. I've trained extensively with Goldwell Haircolor, and also attended classes in hair-cutting, Paul Mitchell hair sculpting and styling, perming, skincare and make-up...And the Beauty Expo's are always a fun place to "be inspired" in. You could say that I'm knowledgeable in all aspects of the beauty industry, with my specialty being "hair."

After 25 years experience as a licensed cosmetologist, I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to make a difference in our community. We have wonderful staff, and are especially thankful for the long-term friendships that we've formed, with them, and with our clients, over the years.

Paul-Master Stylist/Colorist/Owner

Coming from generations of hairstylists. I can basically say that I grew up in the hair industry. My memories date far back, as a young child, apprenticing in my father's barber shop in Italy.

I moved to America when I was 8 years old. I graduated from Quincy Beauty Academy in 1990, and my wife and I took over The Salon A Cut Above in 1994. I continued my education with Framesi and Goldwell Haircolor. My expertise is in designer cuts and styles for men and women, and formulating color shades to compliment your features and your lifestyle. So, whether you are looking to make your own personal expression, or simply looking to cover grey, I can achieve whatever effect you are looking for with multi-dimentional foil techniques, one process color, or semi-permanent Colorance. And if you have had a "bad color experience", that's in need of repair, corrective color is my specialty.

We invite you to join us, in a warm and friendly atmosphere, and meet a group of very creative and unique Hairstylists, Skin and Nail specialists, Make-up Artists, and licensed Massage Therapists.
