Had Giuseppe Vaccaro not undertaken a fortnight’s work experience in a local salon aged 15, his career could have taken a very different path: ‘My father was a gardener and I had the option of following in his footsteps. But after my work placement, I just fell in love with hairdressing – and my dad said my hands were more suited to hair work than horticulture!’

An apprenticeship in a Surrey salon followed and Giuseppe stayed with the company for three years. After this he moved to London to work in a Knightsbridge salon and learn all he could about the London scene and British hairdressing. Then, at the age of 22, his life changed when an opportunity arose to buy an existing salon in Staines-Upon-Thames. He joined forces with former colleague Lorenzo Mortellaro and together they realised the dream they had always discussed; Mova (an amalgamation of both surnames) opened its doors in 2002 and Giuseppe never looked back…

A self-confessed family-man driven by his ambition to make his loved-ones proud, Giuseppe believes that the secret to Mova’s success is its ability to evolve: ‘We never stand still as a company – we’re always keen to learn anything we can, whether it’s a new innovation we can introduce at the salon or a new technique we can bring to a client.’

    21 10 2020 Did not enjoy the music, needs reviewing. I arrived 10 mins late for my appointment with Gina very stressed having had a horrendous journey of 25 miles on the M25, in dreadful weather and an accident ahead of a notice of an accident on the overhead gantry. Within minutes, the atmosphere of calm and reassurance, In terms of safety re Covid measures and understanding of the weather conditions brought my blood pressure down. All personnel are working very hard under difficult circumstances.. You would never know anything was different to those wonderful pre pandemic times. The salon times have been extended so that all staff (who work in separate ‘bubbles’), work longer days without compromising the ability of their clients to book appointments of their choice and stylist/colourist , and /or sacrificing safe practice. As for the skill in sorting out some very unruly locks and correcting colour and cut, I’m very happy with the new me, despite the weather trying to undo all the skill!. PS it didn’t win. Re the question ‘Atmosphere’, the only reason I have rated a 2 to 3, is that the background music on my visit today was mostly rap or any other that I truly did not understand, or enjoy. What I want is a really lovely and therapeutic experience, this was not mine today.. I don’t suggest the Salon plays opera or classical music, all of which I enjoy, but for the clientele that I imagine need!, which is probably easy listening, and tansformation In a calm and recuperative environment it would be very welcome. PS I suggest you mix it up and look at the demographic of your clients, even do a survey?. Sara. Service:5 Value:5 Result:5 Cleanliness:5 Atmosphere:3
