About Nicolo

It’s a family affair

In 1975, after dreaming of it since she was a little girl, Susan opened a salon along with her husband, Nicolo Desiderio.  Originally, Nicolo Salon had only three employees.  Their passion for people and making them look and feel beautiful helped their business grow.  Four children and a few years later, the salon was working at full capacity so they expanded.  From the beginning, Nicolo has always believed that customer satisfaction, innovation and stylist education are the main drivers of success.  Today, Nicolo Salon is still experiencing unsurpassed success implementing these core value


Education is a top priority

Susan, Nick,  and their staff are highly skilled artists believing in continued education.  They get inspiration from the many classes that they take part in every year.  That inspiration shows in a staff who want to perform at their very best for their guests.  The staff includes a Redken artist, a Redken Educator, Redken Certified Colorists, a Medical Esthetician and Guinot Specialists. Each Nicolo Inc. stylist brings his or her own talents to you and is committed to making each and every Nicolo client look and feel beautiful.

Staying on the cutting edge

Nicolo has been in business for almost 40 years and have always been on the cutting edge of the salon industry.  They are members of an exclusive group called S.W.A.P (Salons With A Purpose)  S.W.A.P. is an invitation only group comprised of 10 of the top salons in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  The group gathers to discuss industry trends, continued education and business practices.

Star Struck

You wouldn’t think that a salon in Melrose, Massachusetts would have many celebrity guests but you’d be surprised who we have come in contact with over the years.  Mel Gibson received one of our Guinot facials every week while he was filming in Boston.  We’ve also done Guinot facials for a certain famous soul singer.  And for you Sox fans, legendary Red Sox right fielder, Dwight “Dewey” Evans has been known to pop in on occasion.
