Being the owner of Salon Amici brings great pride to Lina Maffei. After many years of being around her families' hair salon located on the outskirts of Naples, Italy, Lina discovered her passion for the art of hair design at a very young age. Exposure to the high fashion industry of Naples and its relevance to the hair industry has given an "edge" to Lina's creations that has made her one of the area's leading stylists at this time. The constant demand for her work is proven time and time again by her very busy schedule and the clients anxiously waiting to be pampered. Her expertise in haircutting, coloring and styling are evident in the many smiles that are seen as they exit the salon. Lina is certified in Goldwell, Framesi, and Rusk colors. She also has certification in Keratin Straightening and Hair cutting in Rusk, Label M, and Alterna. Because of Lina's desire to be on top of the latest trends in hair fashion, she is constantly furthering her education in all areas of hair design. Lina has a love of "Updo" hair fashions and is in great demand for the "Bride to Be" and the Entire Wedding Party. She is available to go “on location” for such events.
