Our owner, Michael Giambra, began his career in 1983 at Ultissima Beauty Institute on Delaware Avenue in Kenmore. The school was conveniently located directly across the street from his family's salon, The Lemon Tree. Hairdressing is in his blood! Michael's father, Uncle, and brother are all hairdressers and Michael literally grew up in the salon. From an early age, his path was set.
While working at the family hair salon and being mentored by his father and brother, Michael was also always on a quest to gain knowledge from many of the industry's most talented and accomplished hairdressers.
In 1985, Michael began working with North American Hairdresser of the Year, Sam Brocato who owned the Brocato International Product Company and Lockworks Hair Salons in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
After completing the Brocato training program, Michael became the first National Educator for Brocato International giving him the opportunity to train and educate other hairdressers all over the country.
Making The World Beautiful, One Person at a Time!
Sam's influence in Michael's creative approach to hairdressing was pivotal at this point in his career. Once again, his path was set. In 1992, Michael headed to London, England to study with International Artistic Director and Owner of Toni & Guy, Anthony Mascolo (ever heard of TiGi?).
Anthony is one of the industry's most influential hairdressers to date, and Tigi is one of the largest product companies in the industry. The Toni & Guy Academy experience allowed Michael to bring an international flavor of hairdressing back to WNY.
1993 brought change as Michael branched out from the family business and joined Studio One in Williamsville, NY. After starting as a stylist for the company, he became creative director and manager of the Main Street Salon.
Through those years Michael trained many young stylists and molded them into fantastic hairdressers. As the business grew, a partnership was also established.
They went on to open 2 Hair schools, and 3 salons throughout the Western New York area. One of those salons just happens to be located at 8520 Transit Road. Sound Familiar?
As we know, in business, visions change and goals sometimes shift. After their 20 year partnership, it was decided that they would amicably part ways. It was decided that Michael would assume full ownership of the Transit Road Salon and continue his quest to create the salon of his dreams. It is an environment where the highest quality of customer service and state of the art styles and techniques are representative of the passion felt by Michael and the stylists that work there.
So as you can see, Michael has been at this Transit location all along! Once again, his path is set…..
We cordially invite you to stop in the salon anytime to meet Michael and the rest of our staff. Maybe you can be a part of the story that we continue to write! We Hope to see you soon!

In Buffalo on business for 2 weeks and desperately needed a color touch up. I travel often and at times, my hair needs a cut or coloring. It is nerve racking to go to a new salon in a different city.. I've had many horrible experiences in the past where my hair color would turn out too dark because of my hair texture, it absorbs the color too much.. so my regualr stylist provided me with information on the shade and mixing proportion to inform new stylist before they handle my hair.. I would explain and sure enough... my hair is too dark.. almost black and not the rich brown shade I asked for. I asked a business acquaintance at the local office where she gets her hair done because it looked great. She gave me the name of her salon which happened to be Michael the Salon. I called for an appointmenet with Michael. I found Michael and the staff very welcoming. Michael spent the time listening to my explanation, checked my hair texture, asked several questions.. he took the time to perform an in-depth consultation. .. I asked for a color, cut and styling. My hair turned absolutely FABULOUS!! Great color! Great cut! Thank you! Thank you! Now I am thinking about planning my future business travel to stop in Buffalo just to get my hair done!!
Awesome! Friendly! Worth the Service!
It was easy to schedule an appointment. Upon arriving, very little wait time. Friendly staff. However, after spending $100 on a simple t-bar highlight with NO haircut or style, I was completely disappointed. Later on that same day, my husband and friends didn't even realize I had anything done with my hair at all. Closer inspection showed that my regrowth still showed in most places. (Death in family 2 days later prevented me from having them "fix" the issue...however, it shouldn't have needed "fixing" in the first place!) I went elsewhere afterwards, spent less got more and WON'T go back to Michael again!
Before I comment on your review I want you to know I do not have you in my computer under Sawyer. Would you have used another name because I will check the file. A face frame hilite would be at most $50. Please let me know because I would really like to address this situation for you. --Michael
Suzanne does a great job in keeping my hair short and stylish. The friendly staff welcomes visitors with hot coffee to a newly decorated salon. Parking is no problem. Great location, great space and great staff!
