Curly Hair Secret
In an industry inundated with countless claims of turning ugly ducklings into swans, only to leave the consumer flat once they leave the salon – master stylist, Sam Brocato, believes that knowledge is the key to everyday beauty. “Hair truly can be emblematic of who we are – it is a representation of our personality and our life”, says Sam. “When a stylist can bring this out, it creates an instant connection with the client.” Creating a connection, is what has driven Sam since opening his first salon in 1976 (with three more following) and later, two Academies of Hairdressing in Baton Rouge. Sam has shared his vision and immense talent throughout the country and the globe, and has been honoured as “World Top Fashion Hairstylist,” by the World Hairdressing Congress in London, and as “Editorial Stylist of the Year,” at the North American Hairstyling Awards. In 2005, Sam has been chosen to receive NAHA’s prestigious “Lifetime Achievement Award”. Brocato products, are his vision of carrying hair care forward, into your homes.
