BOSTON - Louis P. Terramagra, 81, died unexpectedly in his home, April 23, 2021, in Abbeville.

He was born February 26, 1940 in Boston, Massachusetts, son of Rose Terramagra.

Louis grew up with extended family in East Boston, and graduated from East Boston High School in 1958. Following graduation, he attended beauty school in Boston and studied in New York City under cosmetic entrepreneur Helena Rubinstein and world renowned hair stylist Michael Kazan. Louis was a talented and successful business owner. In addition to his loyal clientele, he was a hair stylist to many Hollywood stars and politicians. He opened his first salon experience, Renaissance, (later known as Terramagra), on Boston’s Newbury Street in 1965. His second salon, Terramagra, followed on Congress Street in Portsmouth N.H. in 1985. A lover of art and fashion, Louis strived to bring “The Best in Beauty” to all of his clients. His career spanned five decades offering the total image of balance and harmony to women and men. His unique eye for hair, makeup, clothing, jewelry, nails and accessories made a large impact on style and fashion and his clients adored him.

Louis loved spending the holidays with family and friends and enjoyed competitive game nights and entertaining. He traveled with friends, spending most of his time in Ireland, Italy, New York City and Florida. He also had a deep passion for horses. He was extensively involved in competitive horse showing, owning, training, boarding and riding and felt most at home on his farms. He spent a lot of his time between Hampton Falls, New Hampshire and Ocala, Florida. He also loved spending time with his most beloved dogs over the years.

Louis retired to South Carolina, where he enjoyed gardening in his yard and spending time with his rescue miniature schnauzer, Ginger. Louis will be deeply missed by everyone that knew him.

Louis is survived by many family and friends, including his cherished niece Lisa (Hutchinson) Sullivan and her husband Greg of South Carolina, many cousins in New England, and beloved godchildren.

At this time a remembrance will take place at a later date for a limited number of family and friends. Those who wish to remember Louis in a special way may make gifts in his memory to the EQUUS Foundation, https://www.equusfoundation.org/
