Winchester Star – WINCHESTER BUSINESS LEADER: Rosina DiBenedetto

When Rosina DiBenedetto went on maternity leave last year, many of her clients at Michael’s Hair Design on Main Street were worried she might retire.

Little did they know that when she returned she’d be the salon’s new owner.

“My clients are excited,” she said. “Now they’re telling me I can have all the children I want, because they know I’ll be back.”

DiBenedetto officially took over as owner on Nov. 1. She’s renaming the business Salon Rosina, and a new sign should be erected sometime in the next few weeks, she said.

The Reading resident, who began working at Michael’s six years ago, said she’d been thinking about opening her own salon for about two years but the timing was never right. But when she heard owner Michael Ferrante wanted to sell, she knew she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take over the space.

“He liked the idea, especially since he’s able to stay on and work here,” DiBenedetto said. “We spent a few months negotiating, and it worked.”

DiBenedetto spoke with the Star about her career and Salon Rosina’s future.
