Mitch Bonaldi was born in Reno, Nevada, but it was in Lake Tahoe that his parents opened their salon. He eventually came around and he too became a hair stylist. Bonaldi realized it would take more than just money to have a fulfilling career-- he wanted to be passionate, creative and offer a service to people so that they can feel good about themselves. As a determined stylist, Bonaldi gets most excited about transformations, such as cutting off a foot of hair. In his aim to create beautiful hair and make clients feel confident, his style derives from the inherent sexy, yet casual look native to Californians.
