Owner & Senior Stylist
Francine started Salon M in the summer of 2019. It was a lifelong dream to be able to lead an amazing team, doing what she loves: making people look and feel beautiful. During these last few years, our beautiful journey has taken us on a very exciting ride. Facing the challenges of a global pandemic, salon closures across the world, and a very complicated reopening, have made Francine and her team extremely resilient and grateful.
Francine is the proud Mother of two beautiful, grown children and wife to an amazing husband and business partner Anthony. She is obsessed with her chihuahuas, Gracie and Penny, and talks about their shenanigans to anyone who will listen. Family is everything to Francine and her team at Salon M is her pride and joy.
Francine specializes in all aspects of highlighting techniques and dimensional grey coverage. She has a close bond with her clients and goes above and beyond everyday to exceed their expectations. Salon M is her home away from home and the Salon M Family is her ultimate source of pride. Francine trains each stylist in cutting and color techniques to ensure consistent quality, no matter which chair you end up in.

Lexi always dreamed that being a hairdresser would be the coolest job around. When she was young, she imagined herself chatting, drinking coffee all day (yes, her obsession with coffee started years ago) and making people look and feel great. So, in 2014 she hit the ground running after graduating from cosmetology school. Lexi dove into intensive advanced education at the top industry institutions immediately.
Lexi is an Elite stylist that truly listens and cares about how her clients feel and look. Her technical skills are sharp and so is her sense of humor. She will keep you laughing with stories about her daughter, partner, and spoiled pup. Lexi is all about family and friends.
Lexi specializes in balayage, fashion colors and dimensional blonding. With Lexi you can go from short to long in the blink of an eye, with her skills in Coldhair fusion extensions by SoCap. As the senior member of our team Lexi is part of the in-house education program at Salon M and keeps the place running smoothly.
