Meet our amazing staff at Salon IAOMO

 

Roberta 

Owner/ Master Certified Hair Stylist

Hi I am Roberta, one of the leaders of this amazing group of talented individuals. I graduated from Pittsburgh Beauty Academy (PBA) with my associate’s degree and was top student of my class.  I was an apprentice at a local salon for my manager’s license. I worked for a national Hair Replacement business and it changed my life.  I had an incredible mentor that was selfless in showing me everything he knew and encourage me to strive high.  After staying for 20 years, I left my position as director of styling where I traveled the world learning and helping people that were in need of hair enhancements, to open my own salon. The relationships I maintained over those 20 years with my clients propelled me to want to go on my own.  In 2008 Salon that’s when IAOMO was created.  It was a labor of love combining a conventional salon with an integrated hair replacement studio.  I wanted to give back what was selflessly given to me, to help stylist grow and create amazing careers.  In the beginning of 2020 I was honored to receive my Masters Certification in the Hair Replacement Industry by the American Hair Loss Council.  I am honored to be 1 of 30 people in the United States to work hard for this honor. I love what I do helping clients who are hair challenged.  I make 8 hairs look like 80.  I help build self-esteem and smiles thru their hair.  Nowadays, my love is to only work with hair replacement clients in need.

Hello, My Name is Maureen and I have been a hair stylist for 36 years.  I started in the hair replacement industry from the very beginning of my career and have never looked back. I work hard to keep up with current techniques and products that are part of the industry.  Continuing my education is something that is top of the list for me.  You can never stop learning new things.  I have been with Salon IAOMO from its start in 2008 and love interactions with my clients (they are an extended part of my family) and of course my co-worker family. I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.  My certifications are updated yearly.  A few of my favorite things about doing hair is hair extensions, hair replacements seeing the dramatic transformations and the pure joy on a client’s face when we are done.   It’s a very uplifting and challenging industry to be a part of I am ready to help anytime.
