Master Hairstylist Frank Marasco Transforms the World, One Woman at a Time

Frank Marasco Makes Over Ordinary Women -- Not Professional Models -- in His Spring 2009 Hair Collection

SUDBURY, ON--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - Off Regent Street in Sudbury is a place where fairy tales come true, with a little help from Frank Marasco and his team of talented hairstylists at A Touch of Class Salon. A long-time member of Intercoiffure America/Canada (ICA), award-winning stylist, and accomplished photographer, Marasco specializes in transforming his clients from ordinary to extraordinary women.

"I love women," says Marasco, "and I find it incredibly fulfilling to help, shall we say, a young bride experience her full feminine potential for one of the most important days of her life. I'm like a sculptor. I look at the raw material, and I see shape and texture and movement. This is what I bring out in the salon."

Marasco frequently demonstrates his make-over artistry on television. He is internationally recognized for his exceptional hair designs, which balance creativity, simplicity and femininity. He is a former ICA Board member, a long-time member of the ICA Creative Team, and has been recognized for his contributions to the industry by Intercoiffure Mondial in Paris.

In addition to serving as ICA's official photographer, Marasco specializes in shooting hair collections and runway events. He photographed the launch of Wella's TrendVision collection in Portugal in 2008. Marasco has introduced his own line of hair products, available through Jean Julien Ltée. His salon, A Touch of Class, was recognized by Salon magazine for "Best Architectural Design" in 2001. Located at 208 Loach's Road, Sudbury, A Touch of Class is an authorized Wella retailer.
