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.
Once they outgrew that space in the eighties, they wanted to move into the new up-and-coming town of Washington Township, and then the salon Mirage was born. Rizzieri Salon can be found now in the Virtua Health & Wellness Campus on Hurffville Cross Keys Road in Washington Township.
In the nineties, their son, Frank Rizzieri moved into a leadership role within the organization. He had been a part of the business since the moment he was born. It was second nature to him, and the passion ran deep in his veins.
It is because of that passion that Frank not only runs a very successful business enterprise, he also is a renowned editorial hairstylist and travels around the world, co founded a hair tool company called Rsession Pro Tools and is the Creative Director and spokesperson for a national hair extension company called VOMOR. Even though his different businesses have won many awards, he has won the most sought after hair award, known as NAHA which is the highest honor bestowed to a hairstylist in all of North America. Rizzieri has won it three times.
On his watch, Frank Rizzieri also won the Global Salon Business Award for Excellence in Business, which was awarded as one of the best run salon businesses in the world. The competition was judged by UCLA School of Management.
Frank is also deeply involved in the communities in which he services and is also a proud member of Board of Directors of the Virtua Foundation.
