Meet Our Team
Marcello trained to be a hairstylist in both Buenos Aires and Italy. His parents emigrated to Argentina, where he was born. As a teenager he apprenticed at the family’s hairdressing business. From a family full of stylists, he always knew what his career path would be. Besides his wife Teresa and daughters Maria and Michaela, his other passion is “futbol” (soccer). Stop by on a Saturday afternoon and you might find a game on the TV.
Ten years after graduating from college with a BFA , Maddy went to hairdressing school with no idea that it would become a career she loved. She was looking for something to supplement her income as a fine artist and found a creative outlet that suited her outgoing personality to a tee. At Salon Marcello, she combines her two loves as curator of the Art Gallery and hair stylist. Obsessive hobby: Argentine Tango.
Shay La Rouche
Having graduated college with a degree in childhood education, Shay soon realized her true passion to become a hairdresser. Born in Texas, she exudes southern charm. Although Shay moved to upstate NY with her husband and daughter, she is so dedicated to Salon Marcello that snow, sleet, rain or hail will not prevent her from being here.
Sal was born in Calabria, Italy. He came to the United States with his family at the age of 14. On a vacation to Italy, he met and fell in love with the lovely Francesca. After a long distance romance, they married and had two children. The family moved to Italy for a few years where Sal also worked as a stylist. Ultimately they missed the life in America and came back.
