Mentor Week Ramsey Sayah BernardiBeautyBlog.com

I met Fabio about 14 years ago, around the same time I started the first salon. At that time, in my career, I was struggling to make ends meet and having staffing issues. I was really at a low point and starting to lose my passion.

Fabio is always happy, he has such a positive outlook on life and a real passion for the profession/industry. He taught me that achieving success isn’t just about haircuts – it’s about building relationships with people too, especially with your staff. He had such an infectious personality, it made me want to do the same thing. He made being a Stylist fun again. It inspired me to follow his philosophy in my salon.

  The Texture Team

I have the honor of working along side some very passionate, caring and extremely talented Stylists and staff. I have learned so much from them – they inspire me to be a better Stylist and leader. They make me proud and I want to make them proud too.

My team’s belief in me and their loyalty have helped build our business and the Texture brand to what it is today. I say “our” because we did it together. I don’t know if I can ever pay them back for that. They are more than just co-workers to me – they are my family.
