Riccardo Maggiore has been a top hair stylist in New York City for over 20 years. He has had beautiful hair salons in midtown for over 17 years.
Born and raised in Catania, Sicily, Riccardo Maggiore began styling hair at the early age of fourteen. At fifteen, he moved north to Milan in pursuit of a career in the high-profile fashion industry. Training in Milan's most fashionable salons by day, and attending the prestigious Centro Style Moda School by night, Riccardo honed his craft and quickly gained a steady client list and a reputation as a skilled young artist.
Noted for his precise, versatile haircuts and fashion-forward styling, Riccardo was soon invited to style at various fashion shows, including Laura Biagiotti, Missoni, and Armani. Over the next few years, Riccardo became a styling instructor, won a number of awards, and worked with industry legends including Vidal Sassoon, Louis Longueras, and Aldo Coppola. During this time, Riccardo was encouraged to bring his talent to America.
Once in New York, Riccardo quickly established himself as a top hair stylist and worked at some of the most prestigious hair salons in midtown Manhattan. Again, his ingenuity led to runway jobs for Escada, Bill Blass, and Geoffrey Beene, as well as advertising and editorial work. In 1995, after years of dedication, creativity, and superior styling, Riccardo opened his own Manhattan hair salon.
Believing that individuals' looks should compliment their lifestyle, Riccardo spends time with each client to understand their daily lives and styling needs. Riccardo also takes into consideration his clients' physical attributes and thus tailors his styles to accentuate their inherent beauty.
In addition to acting as owner and hair artist at the Riccardo Maggiore Salon, Riccardo has offered his time and services in various philanthropic ventures, including the American Cancer Society, A Wish and a Smile fundraiser for St. Jude's Hospital, The Food Bank, and The Leukemia Society.
