Despite popular assumption, there is no person named “Amal Niccoli’,” but rather the salon’s name is a composite of the names of the two Somerville natives who first established the business back in 1985. The current owner, Lori Pino, has made the salon a staple of Somerville since its purchase in 1991 and its move to the heart of Ball Square in 1995. Since then, Amal Niccoli has taken pride in hiring and retaining Somerville residents as the majority of its staff, which characterizes its welcoming, friendly environment. Our top priority is our clients’ utmost satisfaction, and we continually seek ways to make your vision a reality. Since 1991, Amal Niccoli has consistently won several awards from the Somerville Times, Somerville News, and Somerville Journal for its outstanding service and quality. In addition, the salon was awarded Small Business of the Year from the Someville Chamber of Commerce in 2005.
