I am truly woven from the same cloth as my mother; not only was she an awesome mom but she was also an amazing hair stylist. In honor of my mom, I dedicate the creation of RValentinoSalon to her. My mom-as you can see in the photo gallery (mom’s journey in life from graduating hair school to raising a family) was a true style maker in her own right. She was the “i” and the “t” in “it girl”. As a matter of fact, she did not take shit from anyone. Furthermore, My mom taught me that I can do anything in this life as long as I worked hard for it. Let alone, to not ever let anyone steal my joy or trample on the person she helped create inside of me. Mom was a true trail blazer that taught me to stay true to who I am. In the end, that has allowed me to become the best human being expressed through my art as a hair stylist.
