Why Tough Love?
Our founder, Lisa Cardillo, is known for her excellent skills, and for being “professionally honest” with her clients. She knows that clients really appreciate the honest feedback of an experienced beauty professional. This is the origin of our salon name and the origin of our “Straight Talk” core value. Tough Love is referring to the careful art of saying what needs to be said, in the spirit of doing what’s right, and educating clients about how to achieve and maintain their best look.
It’s all about doing what’s right for the LOVE of hair and beauty!
