Amid art studios and modern lofts sits The Factory Salon, located in downtown Fort Lauderdale Fat village. The Salon opened three years ago by the pioneering team of mother and daughter Carmela and Milan Petruzelli, and is one of the few remaining businesses running strong in the up and coming urban district. The 1,300 square foot, mid-century industrial space is filled with hair, fashion, art and extremely talented stylists. The Factory Salon has been so successful that it was recently voted as the Best Salon (and the only salon listed) in Fort Lauderdale by ELLE Magazine. Walking into the trendy salon you immediately sense a friendly, creative and laid back environment, instantly putting the customer at ease. Carmela has many years of experience and training in both business and the salon industry, leading her to manage and operate a national salon chain, as well as instructing hopeful stylists in color and hair design. Milan was a stylist in California for fifteen years, as well as a certified Bumble & educator, and came to South Florida to partner with mom in the creation of The Factory Salon. " I remember when I was a little girl I'd sweep the hair off the floor at my mom's shop," says Milan, whose excitement and personal style are almost contagious. Now they operate Fort Lauderdale most prestigious and elite salon together. The Factory Salon is staffed with enthusiastic and creative stylists with the combined experience of more than 30 years in the industry, all of whom love and live for hair, and believe style doesn't come with a high price tag. "All of us here at The Factory possess a mutual passion for hair styling and helping our clients look and feel great," says Milan, who is also a certified colorist for the premiere Italian Davines line of color. The Factory Salon's casual and quality vibe make it the only salon in the Fort Lauderdale region to consider when it comes to color, style, imagination and reasonable pricing. As Carmela says, "With all that said, welcome, and let's get to work!"
