Abagale M. DiGiacomo
specializes in Color
Hi! My name is Abagale DiGiacomo and I am a Cosmetologist and Salon Manager at Rejuvenate Salon and Spa. I am the daughter of Annette Garbes (Massage Therapist and Salon Owner).
A little bit about myself:
I went to high school at Dunkerton Community Schools, and for college I went to Capri Cosmetology School in Waterloo, Iowa. I have done various amounts of volunteer work around the community. I have worked in one other salon before working here at Rejuvenate Salon and Spa. I am a mother to a beautiful baby girl and handsome little boy. My husband and I live here in Waterloo!
My mission as a hairstylist is to make you feel better about yourself when you leave, than from the time you first sat in my chair. I wanted a career that I can help make people feel beautiful inside and out without having to make you go through lots of pain to get there. I love seeing all of my clients reactions to their service that they receive and tell me how much it helped them. That is the best form of payment I could ever ask for. My clients are my number one priority, and if their not happy, then I will take as much time as it takes to make them happy about their service.
Our Salon Mission:
My mission for the salon is to keep everything organic and pure as possible. I have learned over my time being in the salon that more and more people want things that help their hair but with out those harsh chemicals. So, I went on a hunt to find the most organic hair color and many other salon service chemicals and tried to find the most organic products I could find. Now, the products I use in the salon are All Nutrient and Simply Organic. Oway Hcolor is the worlds first biodynamic, free-trade, professional only hair color. It is a cream based color that is ammonia free, paraben free, gluten free, safe for vegans and never tested on animals. The products contain ingredients that were grown on the family’s 100 year old organic farm in Bologna, Italy. Now that I have used these products, I never, ever want to switch back to any other hair color I had used before. These products smell and work amazing. All Nutrient is just as great and they have same background as Simply Organic. Having both of theses lines in our salon helps give you the client more options to chose from to find that perfect fit for your hairs needs!
