Matibo’s Salon, “Where color is what we do best,” started its life Aug. 1, 2005. Matthew Deschenes, and his partner, Ibo Yilmaz, purchased the salon from Matthew’s father, Peter Deschenes, and renamed it Matibo’s, which is a combination of their first names. Previously the salon was in business for 30 years as The Baron Hair Design.
We always keep ourselves updated with continuing education. Matthew and Ibo regularly attend Premier Orlando, the biggest hair show in the U.S. Our stylists always take either in- salon or outside color and cutting classes. Our color line, Schwarzkopf, one of the best in the industry, offers us four in-salon classes a year.
Stop in and visit with the best hair and nail specialists in the area! You can get your questions answered, make your salon appointment, or pick up essential haircare products that you can use at home to look your best.
On March 30, 2010, we received a Small Business of the Year Award from the Greater Hudson Chamber of Commerce. New Hampshire Governor John Lynch was there to congratulate us.
