Last weekend, here at Root Hair & Beauty we celebrated our second birthday, so we thought about interviewing Stefano, Root’s owner and director.
1 Where are you from originally?
I’m from Rome, Italy.
2 How did you get into cutting hair?
My entire family is into cutting hair 🙂 In fact, one of my favourite childhood memories is about running around my mom’s salon in Rome. My cousins and my brother also are hairdressers in Italy! I think we have it in our DNA!
3 Tell us about your career as a hairdresser.
I started in the industry when I was 16 years old but it was only after I attended the Tony & Guy and Vidal Sasson academies in London that I officially started my career. I worked in Barcelona and Sydney, but London always occupied a special place in my heart and I kept coming back here, especially Exmouth Market, where I’ve decided to open my own salon: Root Hair & Beauty.
4 Tell us moreaboutRoot Hair &Beauty. How did that come about?
Initially, for a few years, I was the manager of EXM salon right in these premises, but later on, I understood I wanted to run my own shop and the opportunity to buy it came along and I turned into what it is today: Root Hair & Beauty. 5 What would you say is the key to your success or what about your particular style made folks gravitate toward Root?
Some of our customers have been coming back here for years, even before it was called Root. Reading their super-positive reviews, I think that what attracts old and new customers is the attention we always give them. We always offer a tailored and honest advice to every single person who walks in our salon.
5 What’s yourfavouritepart ofyourjob?
You can call me crazy, but despite having cut hair to thousands of people, I still enjoy it very much! It’s what makes me feel alive and I love being able to help people to love themselves more. It’s like working on my karma and giving back to people, right? 7 What are the plans for the future of Root?
Obviously, we want to get better and better and I think we are on the right track to becoming the favourite hair and beauty salon in London!
Come to Root Hair & Beauty to meet Stefano and the rest of the team!
