After assisting and training for only one year, Kevin had a vision of becoming a top stylist. At 23, he opened his first salon in North Palm Beach where years later he was introduced to Edmund Soriero.
 
Working side by side with Eddie, he never imagined they would one day team up and open the hottest salon in PGA. Specializing in short cuts, color and styling, Kevin has remained one of the most sought after and popular hairdressers because of his consistency in customer satisfaction for beautiful and modern hair.
