Thomas Michael Constantino was born to James and Ida (Mastromateo) Constantino on July 6, 1957. He attended Westside High School and graduated in 1976. While in his last year of high school, he simultaneously started Cosmetology School in the evenings. The discovery of his true passion had finally been revealed. Following high school, Tom pursued his passion for hair at his father’s salon, James and Sons. Later, he furthered his career and met his friend and mentor, Tommy Coppi, who influenced his nickname “Tino,” that would start his legacy. He turned that name into a thriving business and brand, opening Salon Tino with his wife, Trish, in 1989.
Several years after opening Salon Tino, the salon was recognized by an industry trade publication, “American Salon”, as a top performing salon in the nation. He paved the way for countless stylists and inspired them with his passion for hair. He taught them to strive for excellence and represent the beauty industry with pride. He inspired, motivated and challenged his employees, making Salon Tino one of the top performing salons in Omaha for many years.
Tom had a deep passion for making people feel beautiful inside and out. If he wasn’t behind his chair, he was on the golf course, his bike, or traveling the world and making an impact on a different community. He loved to cook and bring his family together over Italian food. Tom had four beautiful children, Julian, Jarred, Mia and Isabella. He was a loving and caring father. His family was always the most important thing to him. He will always be remembered for his bright smile and the laughter that he brought to any room. He was a Legend and will be sorely missed by many.
