Bernadette Danielle Romano, owner and operator of A Traveling Salon has spent the last year creating a unique one of a kind business thats Bringing The Salon To You!
Bernadette's passion for hair and makeup started in middle school when she would dabble with hair color, makeup and updos on her friends and family. This continued all the way through college until in 2009 she attended and graduated Paul Mitchell the School. Since then she has worked in salons in Fairfield, Orange and Milford. In the summer of 2016 Bernadette's services started making their way into client's homes instead of the salon. Amidst an awkward hair washing experience in the kitchen sink; it was then the idea of a traveling salon came to mind. "If dog groomers can have a mobile salon, why cant I create one for my cleints!" And so the year long journey began..
