Meet The Team


Frank is the owner of Aura Salon. His career began at The Capri institute and has expanded to include training at Wella Sebastian Studio for razor cutting and face shaping, The Goldwell Institute for advanced color training, Redken Symposium for color training, and Redken 5th Ave for advanced cutting and coloring techniques. His staff feels that his greatest asset to the team is his passion for teaching his employees and the pride he has for his staff. “Our team truly believes in growing together as one. What each of us learns at every training that we attend, we bring back to each other and build on it”. For Frank, the hair industry has always been in his blood and that shows in his passion and dedication to his work. “It wasn’t until later in my career that I learned that my great grandfather was a successful hairstylist in Italy. That made a lot of sense, because on the first day of hair school, I knew this the career for me. I have enjoyed every second of it and I am looking forward to an even brighter future”.
