Editorial / Commercial Stylist – Educator
Some people have that rock star style. You know, they are edgy, hip and you idolize them, but at the same time, they keep that sleek and mysterious vibe that is simply untouchable. We have a rock star hair stylist living right here in Downtown St. Pete, Albie Mulcahy, owner of VLVT Salon, located at 538 Central Avenue. Even for us adults, he is the type of person you want to be like “when you grow up.” Albie is a true Rock-n-Roller!
Born in Boston, Mulcahy has traveled to over 35 countries for over 35 years styling and educating hairdressers in the fashion industry. He has lived in all of the major fashion capitals of the world (such as London, Tokyo, NYC, and LA), worked his magic for high-end runway shows for Prime Ministers, was friends with the late Paul Mitchell, and has even been one of the few Americans to be featured at the prestigious Alternative Hair show in London, England. He currently continues to travel around the globe to fulfill his rich and famous clients’ styling needs. (He is just that good!)
As a self proclaimed Star Trek Nerd (Trekkie) Ann has in her 27 years as a hairdresser worked with and attended classes with some of the best known hairdressers in the industry. Graduating from Loraines Academy in St Petersburg in 1991 she has always had an obsession and Passion for the science and Technogy behind the products she uses which in turn helps her produce quality results .
Her color and finishing work for both Men and Women have always been focused on the health and integrity of the hair.
She also has a Love for Extension and Dreadlocks application and as you can see , Ann has a lot of fun in her personal life as well as work
Michele Pillucere is a native of St. Petersburg and has accomplished thirty three successful years in the hairdressing industry. 'Chelle', as her friends call her, excels in dry hair shaping, which is a very particular technique that she picked up many years ago from an artist she saw on stage at the IBS Show in Orlando. Upon returning home, she was determined to learn more about this artist and within a few days, she happened upon an article in the St Petersburg Times announcing "Albie Mulcahy", the artist on stage, had relocated to her hometown and opened a salon. What fate
Chelle's style is timeless and classic and she is inspired by Mid Century Modern design and British Mod fashion and music from the 1960's. This led her to study and take courses at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in New York and Miami. Today clients from all over, come to Chelle for her expertise in dry shaping which is paired with artfully placed color giving them a bespoke service that is a step above, everytime.

As a recent transplant artist from the Punk warehouse in Bushwick, Brooklyn we at VLVT love the Bohemian, Artistic, New York flair she brings to the salon.
When she isn't at the salon she is busy painting, drawing, sculpting, sewing, screen printing etc. Her recent project has been "darktarotclothing," drawing a slightly darker different version of tarot cards and printing them onto vintage clothes, tote bags, aprons, and patches mixing a floral Sunday dress with a patch of skeletons.
