TRAINED AT THE VIDAL SASSOON ACADEMY IN SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA AND AT THE GOLDWELL ACADEMIES IN BALTIMORE, MARYLAND AND ROCKYHILL, CONNECTICUT, FRANK QUICKLY BECAME A COLOR GURU.

FRANKS MAIN CONCERN IS THE INTEGRITY OF THE HAIR THEREFORE HE WILL NEVER DO ANYTHING TO YOUR TRESSES THAT WOULD BE DAMAGING. “SOMETIMES I HAVE TO GENTLY EXPLAIN TO A CLIENT WHY SHE CAN’T HAVE THE COLOR SHE WANTS BECAUSE THE PROCESS WILL DESTROY HER HAIR. THIS IS RARELY AN EASY THING TO HEAR WHEN YOUR HEART IS SET ON SOMETHING BUT AFTER I AM THROUGH EXPLAINING WHAT IS POSSIBLE THEY ARE VERY GRATEFUL THAT I TOOK THE TIME TO EXPLAIN IT. I PERSONALLY DON’T SEE THE POINT OF DOING A COLOR IF YOUR HAIR IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE STRAW.” “ONE OF MY GREATEST PLEASURES IS MAKING OTHERS FEEL GREAT ABOUT THEMSELVES, AND I FEEL THAT I AM GIVEN THIS OPPORTUNITY EVERYDAY WHEN I AM WITH MY CLIENTS. NOTHING TOUCHES MY HEART MORE THAN WHEN SOMEONE TELLS ME THAT WHAT I DID HAD A PROFOUND IMPACT ON THEIR SELF-ESTEEM. I AM SO BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO DO WHAT I LOVE.”

Although new to Salon Sora, Michael is a second generation Boca Raton hair colorist. With over 25 years of salon experience, he brings a unique blend of fashion, chemistry, and science to the team.
"I grew up around the local salons and was always fascinated by hair color chemicals and their ability to transform peoples appearances. I apprenticed under my father and gravitated towards the technical side of the business. We used to do a lot of corrections and we worked closely with the manufacturers testing products and techniques for implementing them." This lead into a career as a hair colorist that has had a close relationship with and is very much inspired by the companies whose color Michael uses.
Michael is also a published author in the hair coloring field. His instructional guide booklet, "Cosmetology: Haircolor" by
Product Club/Bar Charts publishing has sold over 10,000 copies and is currently being translated into Spanish. He has also written and illustrated education portfolios and instruction manuals, as a complement to teaching for major manufacturers including: Keratin Complex, Schwarzkopf, Wella, Burmax, Product Club, Logics, and Clairol.
"I think the most important thing is attending to detail. There are a lot of good hair colorists, and competition is one of the driving forces of our industry. I try to separate myself from the pack by really understanding the relationship between the chemicals I work with and the results they provide. This keeps the hair in the best shape possible and allows me flexibility in changing colors throughout the seasons, or when something new is desirable. The decision I make with each client is a major part of not only how they see themselves but also how the world sees them. I am humbled by that idea the same way today as I was the first time 25 years ago."
With 15 years under her belt as a colorist Jessica is quite capable of achieving your desired color results. Perhaps it’s her outgoing Mid-Western personality or the fact that she takes the time to explain the process and answer all questions that makes her clients immediately feel at ease.

Always one to improve her talents Jessica is no stranger to continuing education. Having studied with some of the finest and most respected colorists and color manufacturers in the hair color world; Amanda Galmiche, Sonya and Christopher Dove, and Teri Daughtry, as well as taking courses with Wella, Goldwell and Loreal is what has helped Jessica remain on the forefront of her professional path.
“I love what I do and I feel that my clients are my extended family. I will always strive to give them my very best. I feel so fortunate to work with my fellow artists at Salon Sora. It’s a beautiful and friendly atmosphere that my clients just love!"
Whether it’s a summer blonde or fashion color, bouncy blowout or precision cut, this third generation stylist has been gracing the salon world with her creative vibe. Kaelyn has shown her creative styles in magazines such as, Boca Delray Magazine and Boca Observer as well as performing at trade and hair shows along the eastern seaboard.
Being in the business for ten years has not dulled Kaelyns’ passion for what she does. “I love my clients for trusting my judgment and allowing me the freedom to be creative. And working in such a chic environment like Salon Sora helps me to give my clients the very best that they deserve.”
