Transitions: is defined as a change or passage from one place, action, mood, topic to another. Transition best describes the process Transitions studio owner Carlo Turavani has been engaged in. Carlo has been a hair stylist since obtaining his license in 1980 and starting his own salon in 1984, Salon 244. Carlo's life changed when a close friend passed away in 1992 from cancer. He then began his transition from a hair stylist to understanding that beauty begins from the inside and that self confidence can be gained by the expression of that beauty on the outside. The journey Carlo has been on since 1994 has lead him to cross paths of some wonderful people, like a child from his home town who lost her hair from cancer. To the courageous women he has met at the St.Catharines General Hospital to the clients that he has served for over 20 years. In 1993 Carlo became certified as a cosmetic therapist. As a cosmetic therapist he works with women, men and children who have lost their hair.
