We are proud to have a highly talented team at SouthBay Hair Studio + Spa. Here’s a little about us and what we do.
Adrienne Miceli Trask was born and lived her early years in NYC. Born into a Sicilian family, headed by Salvatore (Sal) Miceli and his beloved wife Jean (ne: Ippolitto). Jean and Sal were married in NYC in the 1930′s. Sal was an accomplished violinist and played with various local Symphonies. Together, Sal & Jean owed a number of beauty salons, Jean as a manicurist and Sal as a hairdresser. After working in a defense plant producing armaments during WWII, the Miceli’s welcomed into the world their two children Tina and Joseph. Their children often worked in the family’s beauty salon, creating the atmosphere that in the 60′s welcomed into the family Lisa Adrienne.
Adrienne grew up in the familie’s salon, at that time located in Flushing, NY. In 1979, Adrienne and her family relocated to Sarasota, FL. Sal, after the loss of his beloved wife, moved here and became a strolling violinist at various restaurants, including Cafe L’Europe on St. Armand’s Circle. Thus began Adrienne’s love of the Gulf Coast. After graduating from Riverview High School, and starting her family here in Florida, Adrienne’s life took her northward. But her heart was always here on the Gulf Coast and thus her and her family are back here in the greatest place to live in the world. Family has always been Adrienne’s focus and passion. This passion became a lifes purpose when tragically Adrienne’s Mom, Tina passed away from GBM a very virulent form of brain cancer. Since that time, Adrienne has volunteered at such places as Florida Cancer Specialist and become an advocate for brain cancer awareness and advocacy. Including testifying before the United State Congress. Adrienne and her family recently welcomed its first grandchild, when Adalai Ludwig, born to Adrienne’s daughter Amber, who came into the world on June 22 in Tampa, FL. A new generation has been born, to carry on the great works of Sal & Jean Miceli at SouthBay Hair Studio & Spa. BENVENUTO!!!
