Salon Azzurro started in April of 2006 by brothers, David and Joe Maccarone. It was their Italian immigrant parents who encouraged them to be in business together, doing what they love doing - HAIR. They started off as assistants in the Princeton area and soon developed clienteles of their own, going from shampoo boys (David at Peppi's Hair Design, Joe at La Jolie and later Vis' a Vis' in Princeton) to having an opportunity to buy Peppi's Hair Design from their father's best childhood friend (and next door neighbor) in Calabria, Italy - Joseph "Peppi" Panzitta. Azzurro, meaning blue in Italian, is a tribute to the Italian national soccer team they cheered for as children! Their parents helped both of them foster the dream to own their hair business together and to fulfill that dream. To them they say, "Thank You".
At Salon Azzurro we have truly embraced what our Italian upbringing has taught us- to show a caring and love for people that is recognized worldwide. Our belief and philosophy is that each individual client is warmly welcomed, exceptionally cared for and known personally as part of something larger, a family, that hosts you in our "home". As owners it is not only our philosophy but also an ideology our staff warmly embraces. They are an extended part of our family, which strongly influences our hiring and also helps to maintain a high standard of care and performance that is unparalleled in our business. Our clients' experience is what sets us apart and we invite you to sample it for yourself and discover what we can accomplish together!
