“When I moved to St. Louis from Boston, one of my biggest worries was who was going to do my hair (well…not BIGGEST, but a blondie needs a good hairdresser to keep her roots in check!)  I asked a friend with fabulous blonde hair where she got hers done, and she referred me to Rob.  Rob does an amazing job with my blonde highlights, and clearly knows his stuff – he’s been in the industry for years.  Not only have I loved my color from Rob, the haircuts he’s given me have been awesome as well.  He listens to what you want, while also will giving you the best recommendation for your hair. I would definitely recommend him, or any of his stylists (I’ve gone to a few others when Rob was unavailable and I was desperate for a highlight!).” – Lauren S. 

“From my very first experience in Robert’s chair, no one else has colored or cut my hair in the nine years since! As a creative type myself I can appreciate Robert’s ability to tap into the “shear” genius, consistently delivering a stunning style suited to my facial structure. Whether it’s a blowout for a professional headshot, weekday wear or hair/make-up for a photo shoot, Robert has defined a decade of looks that project precisely who I am at any given time. His ability to hone in on my moods in the chair is uncanny. When getting bangs and straightening service for the first time, his manner was firm and reassuring. The result is by far the best look I’ve ever had. He’s nothing short of amazing!” – Kelly S.

“Rob continues to impress me, year after year, after nearly a decade of being his client. His tireless passion for his profession reaches far beyond “the job”. His energy is contagious, and he is constantly learning (& teaching!) for his client’s beauty benefit. Personable, professional, accommodating and amazing~ What a gem! Keep up the outstanding work, Rob! “ – Tracy M.

“Over the eight or nine years that I have known Rob, his talent has only gotten bigger and better. While he is a master at styling and cutting, I personally believe that his expertise is in color. His Foiling technique is so refined and precise, it borderlines mathematical. I am quite picky about my hair and it is very important to me that it look just right. When I arrive at his chair, he is always full of energy and ready with knowledgeable suggestions. The peace of mind I have when I leave his Salon is priceless. He just gets it RIGHT! Every. Single.Time. In my opinion, Rob Govero is simply… the best there is.” – Jennifer K.

“3 years ago I started coming to Rob. I was tired of the same cut and color that every salon heard me say I wanted. Now, every time I come in from the first visit to my last, Rob takes into account my features, lifestyle, and trends to create a look that is right for me. I never walk out looking less than my best and his chair side manner is incredible. Always quick with a joke or much needed advice Rob is there, not only as a stylist, but as a friend. I can imagine going to anyone else!”  Jessica D.

“I have been a faithful client of Rob for the past 7 years. He never ceases to amaze me with his high energy, creative, and super personable personality. His knowledge in the salon industry is exceptional, always using the newest techniques and mastering them! Whenever he suggests something new, I don’t hesitate, I totally trust him. I look forward to my appointments, and always leave feeling great about myself. I only hope he doesn’t get too busy to fit me in! He is the best! “– Debbie R.

“I am pleased to share my experience with Rob! I’ve had the good fortune of being referred to Rob by a co-worker almost 20 years ago. Over the course of our experience together, I’ve observed his energy and passion for his profession and his family. He has shown great creativity and vision in pursuing opportunities to enhance his skills and product knowledge. Rob constantly thinks outside the box in his promotions and marketing, making himself an integral part of the local community. He has always been flexible and accommodating to my schedule which has earned my long time loyalty. Kudos to Rob!” – Michael S.

“I have been going to Rob for more than 10 years. I am always thrilled with the results I get with Rob.  He is one of the most talented hair stylist and colorist in St. Louis. I have referred many friends (and strangers) to Rob, and they have always been pleased with his work and remain clients of his today. I highly, highly recommend Rob to anyone! “–Dawn Eagan

“If you want to look and feel like a superstar you need to go to Robert Govero!  (Seriously, I had a colleague tell me I was like a movie star with all the great cuts and colors I’ve tried over the past year with Rob.)” – Jessica M.
