A long way from the makeshift basement salon in his childhood home, Joe Martino has realized his passion for styling men’s and women’s hair as co-owner and creative director of the exclusive Orlo Salon in NYC’s Meatpacking District. He began his professional career at the age of 18 and started working backstage at New York Fashion Week at the age of 21. Working side-by-side for the past 12 years with legendary hair stylist Orlando Pita, Joe has uniquely mastered a trifecta of hairstyling, cutting, and coloring. Joe is NYC’s best kept secret, creating modern, effortless styles designed to enhance each client’s natural beauty. His work has been seen in Vogue, W, Allure, and T Magazine.
Celebrity clients include Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Carey Mulligan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Amal Clooney, Margot Robbie, and Danielle Steel. Fashion industry clients include Vogue’s Virginia Smith, Phyllis Posnick, and Camilla Nickerson; Glamour Magazine’s Cindi Leive; and celebrity stylists Kate Young and Lori Goldstein. Models include Cara Delevingne, Lindsey Wixson, Karen Elson, Lily Aldridge, Ginta Lapiņa, and Naomi Campell.
Joe Martino lives and works in New York City with his wife and two daughters, Safina and Sylvie.
