Albie Flores is living his dream at Acaj Salon in Maitland, FL., styling, coloring and extending hair and providing fabulous nail care and beauty services.
Providing the fastest and most beautiful blow dry and styling, Albie works his magic with curly hair, long hair, short hair, grey hair, extended, dyed, braided or any other hair type. It’s what makes him happy and it shows in his clients’ faces when they leave Acaj Salon.
“I wanted to have a cool vibe, laid back so that people feel really comfortable when they come here,” said Albie of Acaj Salon which was voted Best Hair Salon by Orlando Home & Leisure Magazine. “It’s not stuffy and that’s why people come back because they know they’re welcome. It’s fun in here.”
Albie makes his work look easy as he quickly gets customers in and out. There’s no wait like in many salons. He’s very aware of his clientele’s busy schedules and works his magic within an hour or two if there’s a cut, style and color.
Originally from Boca, Albie has put together a team that receives constant training to stay at the top of this competitive industry. Each team member at Acaj Salon receives a minimum of two years of training and education in the latest techniques, trends, and world-class customer service before they have the honor of being on the floor.
Staff Trained in the Latest Techniques
All staff members participate in quarterly education courses in the season’s latest trends; ensuring your stylist is up to date on the most current trends in beauty and fashion.
ACAJ Salon is departmentalized, meaning all service providers are specialized in their chosen field; cutting or
coloring. The team of stylist ( cutters and colorists) work together consulting and collaborating to ensure the best possible service.
Albie’s team includes nine-year veteran colorist Jenina who trained with Wella, Goldwell, L’Oreal, Clairol. Her expertise gives her the edge with color correction, high lift color and multi-dimensional highlighting.
Jenina specializes in corrective color.
“You know, when you do color at home and turn it red instead of blonde, or turn your hair grey instead of auburn,” Jenina said. “You do that and I can help you fix it and achieve the color you want.”
Jenifer is the salon nail technician with over six years of experience, she brings a keen eye and amazing attention to detail.
Albie and the Acaj team also provides styling to events outside the salon including weddings, parties, fashion shows, hair shows and events needing his skills on the road.
Albie styled The Marketing Square Mad Men-inspired photo shoot. He was given a photo of actress January Jones and asked to turn a curly-haired brunette into a fashionable housewife/ex-model of the ’60s. He did it and in less than an hour.
Be sure to plan ahead to get into Acaj Salon. Albie, Jenina and Jenifer stay booked and busy.
