close formula

Bosley Professional Strength mourns the loss of one of its own, Denise Ottomanelli, Director of National Accounts, who passed unexpectedly in the early morning hours of November 4, 2015. Denise spent more than 16 years in the professional beauty industry and was an integral part of the Bosley Professional Strength team for the last three years. Prior to joining Bosley Pro, she also worked at Sexy Hair and L’ANZA.


“I was lucky enough to get to work with Denise at both Sexy Hair and Bosley Pro. She was a huge asset to us here at Bosley Pro and simply put, she was the “real deal,” shares Dev Rice, Director of Communications and Creative.  “Genuine, hard-working, always looking out for her customers and always smiling. Our hearts are heavy. She is, and will be, greatly missed by our team and by all of those who knew her.”


Denise had an incredible talent for building strong and lasting relationships with her customers and friends from across the industry. She was also a daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother, whose grandchildren were the light of her life. She will be deeply missed by her Bosley Pro family, by all of those who knew her and by all of those whose lives she touched. 


“I had the great privilege of working with Denise for over 15 years. She was so much more than just a colleague, we became the best of friends,” shares Margie Hill, Director of Business Development, Salon Innovations. “Denise was caring, devoted and genuine. Her legacy and passion for life will live on in the lives that she touched.” 


The family has requested that any donations in Denise’s memory be made to St. Judes. Please keep her family and friends in your prayers during this time.
