Agim is the dynamic owner of the exclusive Agim Salon, located in Indian Wells, California. Twenty Two years in the hair care industry, Agim has successfully built the foundations of a hairdo empire overseeing his salon and racking up an impressive list of clients, but what’s more, in 1997 he launched fifth element®, a revolutionary hair care line that is available to local salons and loyal clientele.
Born in Detroit, Michigan, of Albanian descent, this third-generation style-maker was born with a knack for hair. “It’s in our blood,” he explains. “Hair has always interested me because I care to enhance a woman’s daily routine – and I love to see her confidence grow due to an amazing haircut.”
Schooled in the Dessange technique, the French technique of controlled cutting, Agim studies each client’s personality, lifestyle and facial structure to create the right look. He customizes each cut, while meticulously creating an edgy, yet proportionate style that compliments each client’s uniqueness, but also keeps a woman’s personal hairstyling skills in mind since Agim can’t always be on call for touch-ups. He prides himself on delivering an easily-styled, natural-looking hairdo with minimal structure.
Agim began his styling career at the José Eber Salon in 1989, gaining knowledge and skill from the man behind Farrah Fawcett’s feathered look. After absorbing a wealth of knowledge from this hairdo guru, he eventually moved onto the famed Frederick Fekkai Salon in New York City where he worked closely with Mr. Fekkai before breaking free from the corporate reigns to become a hair care entrepreneur.
This seasoned pro’s work has been seen on the head’s of the widest conceivable range of celebrities including Paula Abdul, Cindy Crawford and Al Gore. His confidence-enhancing ‘dos have been viewed on the pages of fashion magazines, the runways of Empirio Armani and even on an Oprah Winfrey Show makeover.
