Cre8 Salon & Spa Owner Sagorac Receives Arrojo Razor-Craft Certification
Marcy Sagorac, the founder and owner of Cre8 Salon & Spa in Cape Coral, is one of the first 14 stylists in the country to earn the prestigious Arrojo Razor-Craft certification for advanced razor skills, awarded to her in New York City by renown stylist and trainer Nick Arrojo.
Sagorac will have her name listed on the Arrojo Academy home page as one of the country’s finest razor technique specialists. Her picture is also featured on the page, in a group shot with the other certified stylists who graduated with Sagorac from a weeklong advanced razor seminar on June 20.
“We all worked really hard to earn this certification from Nick, and it’s a huge honor to be recognized by him for our skills,” said Sagorac. “I have been razor cutting for two years, but his class blew my mind about how much more I needed to learn. Now, I feel stronger with the razor than I ever have and I’m excited to bring New York styles to Cape Coral – those fresh new looks that are all over the city.”
Sagorac and several other stylists at Cre8 have been training with Arrojo at his New York City academy since 2009. Arrojo will visit the salon July 7th and 8th of this year to teach the entire team classic cut and razor techniques. As an Arrojo Ambassador salon, Cre8 is one of only three salons in Florida to partner with Arrojo and carry the Arrojo product line.
Sagorac said the straight-edge razor as a cutting tool has long suffered from a “bad rap” because of improper stylist training. Used correctly, she said, it is the optimum tool for creating swinging bangs and invisible layers.
“Using a razor has opened up a whole new world for me. With the scissor, your movements are limited. The razor allows you to have more freedom to create seamless diffused shapes, cuts that last longer and grow out better, and more options with styling.” Sagorac had the opportunity to demonstrate her razor skills before thousands of her professional peers recently at Premier Orlando, one of the nation’s largest beauty shows.
Established in 2006, Cre8 Salon & Spa is a full-service salon and day spa. It is one of only three Florida salons carrying the Nick Arrojo hair care product line, classifying it as an Arrojo Ambassador Salon, and owner Marcy Sagorac is Arrojo Razor-Craft Certified. Cre8 also is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for completing the most haircuts by a team in eight hours, a world record the salon set in November 2011 during a fundraiser for the Florida ALS Association. Cre8 is located at 814 SW Pine Island Road, #202 in Cape Coral, in the Fountain Shops on Pine Island Road and Skyline Boulevard. For more information call 239-458-2704 or visit www.cre8salon.com.
