Stylist Tools and  Education 

Rob Burgio is an award-winning Goldwell National Artist, Master Stylist and inventor of the Barracuda Comb Clip, a revolutionary patented hair sectioning tool designed to increase user control, speed & efficiency. Through his position at Goldwell, Rob fulfills his creative hunger and love of teaching by sharing the latest techniques and trends with new and established stylists across the country. He’s inspired by these interactions and cites mentorship and teamwork as his two favorite parts of the job. Rob’s energy is contagious, and coupled with his passion for the art of practical and creative cutting and strong finishing techniques, have led to several top honors for his work, including a 2022 Goldwell Creative Award U.S. Semifinalist as Creative Colorist of the Year and Creative Haircutter of the Year. The global competition celebrating the ultimate in editorial creativity will announce its winners in August 2022, who will go on to represent the country on a worldwide stage and recreate their entries in front of a live audience and international panel of judges.

He owns and manages the e-commerce business, where he sells his patented Barracuda clips, along with other salon industry accessories, as well as the YouTube channel AMPLIFY THE STYLIST and a Facebook page for online education. Rob’s recent success and recognition also include Goldwell’s US National Bronze winner for Goldwell’s Color Zoom 2019 and National Semifinalist in 2017 as well as serving as Artistic Hair and Makeup Director for Miss Buffalo in 2017 and 2019.

Additionally, Rob owns Tesoro Salon, a boutique hair studio in Buffalo, N.Y. that
specializes in precision and creative haircutting for women and men, along with modern, customized coloring for all styles and occasions. He is also a second generation hairdresser; Rob’s father is still a practicing stylist and Rob credits him with passing down his unwavering work ethic. An avid musician, Rob performs in both a rock and country music band. When he’s not on tour or traveling the country sharing hair trends and coloring techniques, you can find Rob reeling in his next big catch on Lake Erie, cheering at his sons’ baseball games, or chasing his young daughter – a future Olympian runner, for sure – around the house.
