Using Aveda products, we offer stress-relieving hand and head massages with our hairdressing to give you the most relaxing experience possible in a hair salon.
First and foremost, Lino is a hands-on hairstylist. One of the aspects he enjoys most about working in his own salon is the chance to develop new styles for clients specifically to suit them, their everyday needs and lifestyles. With hairdressing in his blood, Lino started his career in a top London salon and then moved to Bishops Stortford where his reputation rapidly grew. Since he had the opportunity to realise his dream of opening his own salon in Stansted, he hasn't looked back. Needless to say he has earned the loyalty of numerous clients who can't put a value on his attention to detail, many coming from beyond the local area. Lino has also been recognised recently for his outstanding commitment to staff training, winning a prestigious national award for his salon.
