Carmine Vozzolo – Co-Owner
Carmine began cutting hair in 1966. In 1975 he bought a barber shop in Hicksville, and gradually built it into a men’s and women’s salon.

After building a successful core of hairstylists, he began sharing his years of expertise not only with the Kimera team, but with other members of the industry, as a HairAmerica Educator for the National Cosmetology Association, and an Artistic Educator for Matrix.
In the salon, he divides his time catering to his loyal clientele, and working with the staff to expand and perfect their skills in cutting, coloring, and styling.
