Franco Cipriotti started this business in 1924. While running a successful barber school, visionary barber and stylist Franco Cipriotti saw the future in ladies hairdressing. He transformed his barber school, State Beauty, into a beauty culture school called Maison de Paris, which was the first cosmetology school in the state of New Jersey.
Anna Rizzieri, Franco’s daughter took over the school in 1965 and continued to help it grow and thrive. It grew so much that it outgrew the space. In the span of the three generations the school has moved from Market Street in Philadelphia and now resides in Voorhees Town Center, in Voorhees, New Jersey. Anna can be found at the school on occasion teaching finger waves and other styling techniques; she is very much a part of the business every day.
Her husband, Sal Rizzieri came to America from Italy in 1959. He lived with his aunt and uncle in Bristol, PA. At that time, Anna had an uncle that owned a salon across the street from Sal’s family. Sal was friendly with Anna’s uncle, who one day said that he needed to go to “his brother’s (Franco’s) school”. Anna and Sal met at the school, as she was his teacher. They dated, fell in love, and were married.
