Back in 1976, after working with hairdressing masters Helena Rubenstein and Etienne’s of London, I made it my goal to introduce London flair, Italian passion, cutting-edge techniques and the high-end salon concept to the suburbs of Surrey. My Cobham salon, Franco of Rome, was the forerunner of Academy Salons (est. 1999) and forged today’s client experience and company culture.
Academy Salons expanded in 2002 when I invited Salv to be my business partner to drive the company forward. I continue to work behind the chair, offering the same flair, creativity and passion to my clients, whilst sharing a wealth of experience with our growing team of stylists.
