How did you end up in this line of work?
I started cutting and styling friends hair as a teenager. I always had an interest in hair styling.
What you most like most about your work?
I love people and I love to socialize.
What makes your business unique?
Because Sergi's had been in business for 73 years we have some customers who are in their 90's. They’ve been coming to Sergi's since they we're young boys! I have two employees, Louis Bisceglia, who has worked at Sergi's for 22 years, and Jim Daly, who started one month after I bought the business 5 years ago. Once you come to Sergi's, you never leave!
What's a typical day like for you?
We open every day at 8 a.m. We don’t take appointments so we never know what’s ahead of us. Some days can be slow and some are very busy but it seems to work out at the end of the week. Fridays and Saturdays are our busiest days.
What do you like most about Dedham Square?
Dedham Square is very quaint! It has a lot of unique shops and businesses.
