Tony DeMartile

Director/Founder

Over the years, I've come to realize that it's essential to find joy in the journey, as it's usually more fulfilling than the destination. 

An artist at heart, I was born curious and I'm continually seeking new forms of self-expression. I've always been a passionate person, diving head first into each and every venture that I pursue.  Some days, I find myself precisely where I envisioned I would be; other days, life's adventures bring me to an unexpected yet equally wonderful destination. It's all part of the process of self-realization.

Each day, I arrive behind the chair; it's a cumulation of my journey through the world of hairdressing and life as a whole. I find inspiration and muses in the mundane, the abstract, the familiar, the new and the extraordinary. 

One thing is always certain: I am an artist by nature. Each day, my work enables me to embrace my inner artist in an experience that's simply divine. It's a tremendous privilege to love what you do and to do what you love.

Testimonials:

Tony at Sole Salon is the Master of Color, Cut & Style!  He really has an eye for what will suit you, so if you can turn over the reins, let him do the color and cut that will make you totally happy!  I have gone to him for along time and he never disappoints.  The salon itself has a modern,
restful relaxed atmosphere.  There are plenty of Aveda Products and the staff is always helpful with any questions you might have.  Wonderful facials are also available.  Tony's great and the salon is a great escape!

It is not an exaggeration to say that Tony DeMartile's talent is truly transformational. He has been cutting and styling my hair for more than ten years and each year he just gets better and better. I am six months into experiencing straight, soft and silky hair after receiving two Keratin treatments. OMG! I love it! Normally, I have naturally curly, thick and multi-textured hair that if not maintained well through the right cut and product is a nightmare. Tony convinced me to try the Keratin treatment, and I am thrilled with it. I have received many, many compliments about my new look, and I swear I look ten years younger. What a blast to have a new look, and it is all because of Tony's genius. The salon never disappoints me--a great front desk staff who are always helpful and fun; luscious facials delivered by Carmen, and it is evident that the salon is extremely well managed by Guy, and that the owners love what they do. Love! Love! Love this place.

For years I was living with just a basic haircut before going to Tony about a year ago.  I was pleasantly surprised at the cut, and very happy about all the compliments I receive every time I go in.  Tony can just see what shape cut can make you look your best, and as someone that can't see that myself, I appreciate that!  

Stylist:  Tony -  He's excellent.  Great cut & color, great ideas.  Excellent  scalp massage after a busy work day! Entertaining!  ;-)

Salon:  Great retail front.  Always clean and modern.  Helpful staff - I'm a "I want this this and this" kind of person.  I don't like to browse.  The front staff quickly scurries and gets everything I need.  Great seating area to relax and read while you wait for your appointment, but I've never had to wait more than a few pages of my favorite gossip mag.  

Spa:  I've had a facial there and they're top notch.  Clean, quiet private room in the back of the salon away from all the noise up front.  Very thorough esthetician!  Highly recommended.  Carmen did a great job.  She asked if I had any questions or special requests and then went to work.  Not a lot of chatting.  Perfect for what I was looking for.  Very relaxing.

So, Tony has been in charge of my hair for 7 years now and it just keeps getting better and better.  This is the best salon I've ever been to and believe me, I've tried many in different parts of our world.   They provide a great, personal service and produce a lot of really great looking people.

I've been going to Sole for years now, and it is time I wrote a review for my favorite salon ever.  Since Tony started cutting my hair I've gotten so many compliments I've lost count.  He has also done many of my friends and colleagues, so I've seen how good he is with all types.  He finds the best expression for *your* hair, but it always looks natural and easy.  And the rest of the staff are wonderful and talented and adept at finding the best style for you.  They also offer facials, brow shaping, etc . etc., , and all done with those fabulous Aveda products.  You can probably tell, I love Sole Salon.
