Meet Our Staff

JamieJames Monaco – Fifteen years ago, I first sat behind the front desk of a hair salon. I immediately felt at home in this environment and realized this was the business for me. Soon, I went from managing front desks to managing hair salons. During my fifteen year career in the salon industry, I have managed some of the top hair salons in South Florida. As I continued perfecting my managing talents, I began to form a vision of what a perfect hair salon should be. This vision is now a reality with the opening of Salon Monaco in Boca Raton. Services to the clients at Salon Monaco will be unlike that of any other salon in South Florida. Unparalleled service, the center of my vision, will include a coffee bar, exotic teas, and other beverages of choice. The salon, which will provide hair color and cutting services, represents the personality behind me. I want my salon to be sophisticated with a hip and trendy edge. This atmosphere is represented in the sleek, clean lines of the salon and its color palette of chocolate brown and cool green. Enhancing the look are stainless steel appliances. Of course, more than just beverages and a second to none atmosphere are needed at a top rated hair salon and that is why I have assembled an expert team of stylist and colorist. With many years of combined experience, the team at Salon Monaco will leave you with a look to be envied. This team consists of master stylists and color educators. To stay abreast of current trends and techniques, my team attends various courses in hair cutting and coloring. Salon Monaco will carry the latest hair care products of Schwarzkopf, Goldwell, Sebastian, Morrocanoil, Neuma, an organic product line called Onesta and TIGI. We also carry an organic color line. In addition to servicing those of us who are fortunate enough to experience good health, Salon Monaco will offer wig trimming at no charge to cancer patients. My team and I welcome the privilege to serve you and meet all of your hair salon needs. This experience will be second to none, leaving you with the feeling of pride and well-being.
