WELCOME TO THE

Ana Molinari

Hairstylist / Colorist / Makeup Artist  

For the beauty aficionado, Ana Molinari is the epicenter of the Southeastern United States. The Peruvian­ born dynamo’s salon in Sarasota, Florida has become an essential stop on the itineraries of everyone from young trendy Hollywood actresses and world-weary executives to glamorous socialites on the go and hot surfer boys enroute to the sea. Ana is a master hair stylist and makeup artist with over thirty years’ experience and has worked with some of the best beauty professionals in the world. 

​Ana Molinari has nurtured an entrepreneurial spirit for business since moving to the United States in 1971, where she began her career training with Paul Mitchell. Prior to that, she studied at Helena Rubinstein Cosmetology School. She came into her own at Garfinkel’s Salon in Washington, D.C. before heading what turned out to be a caravan of top stylists to the less than funky wilds of Florida. Her maverick instincts proved right, and she was instrumental in shaping the state’s image as a film, modeling, and beauty hot­spot. 

Her Lemon avenue salon is in a brand new location, nestled in the heart of historically acclaimed downtown Sarasota. Her salon boasts an uncompromising team of stylists that specialize in all hair, skin, nails, and bodies. Also within Ana Molinari's salon is an ​eclectic boutique; a must stop shop offering the most exclusive looks.

  

In addition to styling countless magazine covers, her work has been seen on many famous actors, musicians, and models. She has been involved in music videos, television, and film. Including work on reality shows such as Breaking Amish and Siesta Key. You can also see her work in the film Great Expectations, the local ABC news anchors, and the Sarasota Film Festival. She has studied at Toni & Guy Advanced Cutting, Jingles Advanced Cutting, and L’Oreal Advanced Color School.  

 

She was awarded the Gold Scissor Award and the L’Oreal Color Award. In Florida, she is actively involved in the community where she sponsors charities and donates her time to those with major illnesses. Ever-evolving, Ana Molinari still continues to direct the world of beauty even after thirty years in the business. 

On Palm Avenue also sits Sarasota’s premier modeling and talent agency, Molinari Models and Talent. With a world-renowned photographer, a team of internationally trained makeup artists, and a manager who has been in the industry for decades, Molinari Models and Talent is the most elite agency in Sarasota and its surrounding communities. Providing, organizing, and instructing talent for nearly every major event in Sarasota, Ana Molinari and her staff are the ones to turn to for the best talent. 

Ana’s long-time love for all things vintage combined with her artistry, have also led her to design a line of custom hats. Styles range from sophisticated to swanky, preppy to chic, vintage glamour to nautical beach­side. Upon request, Ana can create any style hat desired. Her hats have been commissioned for a number of artistic, entertainment, and runway events.
