Frank Barbosa
Developing the best formula for each client requires countless years of experience, exceptional talent, a good sense of chemistry and a keen ability to nuance every application. Frank Barbosa is clearly recognized as the master of these skills. His reputation is so strong that an impressive list of celebrities line up to have their hair painted (or in far too many cases, corrected) by him.

Frank Barbosa

Frank Barbosa got his start in the hair industry 17 years ago, while working in the trendy neighborhoods of Bucktown and Lincoln Park in Chicago. When he wasn’t at the salon, Frank was busy styling wigs and working on hair behind the scenes at the famed productions of Ragtime, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Sound of Music, Mama Mia and The Lion King, to name a few. Frank made a move to the east coast and brought his tress talents to Boston’s Salon Red located on Newbury Street, the city’s trendy locale for shopping, dining and people-watching. His next move brought him to Newport, RI, the popular summer haven, where he opened his own salon, Frank Antonio, on Bellevue Avenue, the premiere shopping area. At Frank Antonio, Frank continuously wows fashionistas with his styling techniques, catering to everyone from brides, to party-goers, to those visiting on a weekend escape. In addition to his work at Frank Antonio, for the past ten years, Frank has been busy styling stars on movie sets, prepping their hair for the big screen. He has been the hair department head for recent films such as Bride Wars, Tell-Tale, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Last Harbor, to name a few. He even has a cameo as a stylist to Anne Hathaway in Rachel Getting Married, for which he was the key hair stylist on set, as well as a cameo in Sex and the City 2, for which he was the hair department head and Sarah Jessica Parker’s mane man. With hair, Frank always loves a challenge and he says it gives him a natural high when he takes on each one. Although Frank has many loves, his true passion is working behind a salon chair.
