Mary Brunetti's Bio

Mary’s renowned expertise earned her the prestigious North American Hairstylist of the Year Award, the first woman to receive the honor, and three Editor’s Choice Awards. She also helped to revise Milady’s Standard Textbook of Cosmetology, the textbook used in beauty schools nationwide. Mary has styled the hair for Hollywood A listers such as Eva Longoria, Carrie Underwood, Brooke Shields, Mariah Carey and Jackie Chan. Her hairstyles have graced the pages of such magazines as Elle, Town & Country, Mademoiselle, Vanity Fair and New York Magazine. Her ability to communicate to large audiences is evident at many of the industry’s largest trade shows as featured stylist, demonstrating new trends to loyal audiences of hairdressers nationwide.

In 2008 Mary applied her knowledge of hair structure and problem solving formulations to the equine world, her second passion. TailRx was born, solving a common problem in many horses, lack of mane and tail growth. Lucky Magazine, Marie Claire, and Nylon Magazines quickly broke the news that TailRx also worked on men and women with healthy hair growth issues. The Today Show’s Hoda and Kathie Lee raved about the benefits on the “favorite things” segment of their show. Jennifer Connolly and Renee Zellwegger are also devotees. Mary has now come full circle, uniting both of her passions, hair and horses. Currently, she still maintains a devoted clientele in her own salon located in the posh resort area of the Hamptons, where she lives with her husband, Michael. She is also the Director of Education at the world renowned Sally Hershberger salons in New York City. Mary is a dressage rider and competes at horse shows in New York and Wellington, Florida on her American Warmblood, Emma.
