“The key to a great hairstyle is a great Hair Stylist.”

With over 30 years of respected and award winning experience as a certified Master Colourist, Stylist and Educator for the beauty industry, Rob Pizzuti is described as “a genius of colour corrections” by Toronto Life Magazine. We are thrilled to welcome Rob and his loyal and exclusive clientele to Hair Artisans.

In 2001, after splitting his time between working as a Colourist in Toronto and on 5th Avenue in New York City, Rob settled in Toronto and opened EXIT Salon, REDKEN’s first Canadian flagship salon. For 10 years, EXIT Salon was regularly visited by everyone from hip young professionals to industry powerhouses and was voted one of the city’s 10 best salons by Toronto FASHION for all 10 years in a row. During this time, Rob worked on many prestigious events including the Miss Universe Pageant, Fashion Week, the Bell Celebrity Gala and Fashion Cares. Rob has shot covers for and has appeared in many print articles for publications such as Hello Canada, Elle Canada, Flare, Canadian Living and Chatelaine and has been featured in numerous TV spots including MuchMusic, MTV, Restaurant Makeover and CTV’s eTalk. His most recent highlight was acting as the Director of Backstage/Hair & Make-up at Toronto’s first ever men’s fashion week – TOM* (2014). Aside from personally bringing in the two biggest name presenting sponsors, Davines Italia and Audi Canada. Rob was in charge of recruiting and leading the 45 hair and 23 makeup artists as well as coordinating the 22 leading men’s designers’ runway looks.

As adept as Rob is at running a team backstage, Rob is just as comfortable on stage presenting in front of live audiences. Rob was one of 10 Educators on the L’Oreal International Artistic Team and travelled across North America launching and teaching professionals on how to use new products, often presenting on-stage to crowds as large as 500 or more. Rob has embraced the power of social media and continues to build his online presence. Posting his impressive make-overs and colour corrections has garnered him over 75 thousand Instagram followers and Beauty Editors have Rob’s number on speed dial as he continues to be a source for the latest trends for online magazines and bloggers. Two recent articles featuring Rob can be found here and here.

Rob is an award-winning colourist placing 1st and 3rd in Sebastian’s North American Color Competition out of 8,000 entries from professionals across North America. Subsequent accolades include Canadian Colourist of the Year (Canadian Hairdresser Awards), Ontario Hairstylist of the Year (Contessa Awards), Gold Medal Champion (L’Oreal Colour Trophy Ontario) and Makeover Artist of the Year (Colourist, North American Hairstyling Awards), Davines Top 10 Colorists (Canadian Colorist Search) plus many others.

Rob is a native of Windsor, Ontario and is the youngest of three sons of a large tight-knit Italian family of which he has 57 first cousins and 11 nieces and nephews. He holds a Business degree and has been a Certified Hair Stylist for over 25 years. Rob regularly travels all over the United States on behalf of a new luxury hair-care product called Pai-Shau. He provides teaching and product consultation for this hot new beauty product company. He is proud to say he was chosen as one of its first team members to bring their amazing products to the masses.

Rob’s motto – Everyone has a beauty that can be mesmerizing; it’s our job to highlight it.

Custom “Blonde” Professional hair brush

We’re all sad to see the summer coming to an end but cheer up, our custom Regincos Blonde brushes, imported from Spain, are now on sale for 30% off or FREE when you buy any 4 regular size products! They wont stop the winter from coming (Game of Thrones reference fully intended) but they will make your hair shiny, smooth and soft. We have medium, large and extra large. Please ask one of our stylists for the best size for your style.

Made with natural boar bristles reinforced with white nylon they are gentle on the hair with good grab for root lift but glide gently through hair, boosting shine with each stroke. The lightweight cork handle makes blow-drying a breeze.
