Maria Teresa Sansalone
Maria Teresa’s passion for improving people’s style started a long time ago. She was 12 years old, when she first started working as an assistant in a salon near her home in Calabria. In 2005, she brought her talents to New York, where in her Upper East Side salon she continues to dazzle her clients with cuts, color, and styles that have won her a devoted following.
I have been a hairstylist for 27 years, but my life is also full of love for photography, art, and fashion.
I left Italy in search of a new experience and at the end New York made my dream come true.
The city with eternal energy and lights is a memory that will never abandon me.
This photo captures my work’s creativity.
ITALIANY is a project that represents the ongoing cultural interchange between the US and Italy.
Being an ambassador of Italian culture abroad is an honor, but also a lifelong challenge that makes one grow constantly.
