Lorenzo Mortellaro’s hairdressing career began reluctantly at the age of twelve: ‘I was a shy kid with no real interest in hair but my father convinced me to help out in his salon. By the end of my first day, I was hooked!’ His first haircut – on his best friend, aged fourteen – gained such a positive reaction from his school friends that Lorenzo knew hairdressing was his destiny!

Committed to hard work and determined to succeed, Lorenzo trained in London and moved quickly through the ranks of three different salons, resulting in the position of salon manager. Fuelled by passion and a desire to be the best in the business, in 2002, he teamed up with friend and former colleague Giuseppe Vaccaro to realise a long-held ambition by opening the first Mova salon.

With a keen interest in sport – from his beloved Thai boxing to Chelsea FC – Lorenzo believes that the key to happiness comes from ‘surrounding yourself with successful and positive people.’

    Salon Review by Darling Ascot

    I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit. I didn’t feel rushed in any way a complaint I would have if many places. The stylist was lovely he listened and then he did his magic. Perfect, clean and friendly staff and lady who washed my super thick hair did hurt me either. I would recommend and go back)

    Having been with the same small salon for nearly twenty years I was nervous about going somewhere new. However, the owner was so sweet l, recognising I was a new customer and showing me around. The staff are all so friendly and the salon is modern and very comfortable. There are so many treatments and services I was completely unaware and most of those suitable for my hair type were explained to me. I was extremely happy with my visit, will definitely return and was even given a gift when I paid. Top salon! :)

    Salon Review by Saliha
    I couldn't have my hair cut or treated by any other specialist. Greeted warmly by a kind receptionist, hair washed and treated with a massage and finished with a glamourous model look, i always walk out of Mova feeling like a super modal and have recommended the stylists to all my friends. The personal and professional attention i recieved here has kept me satisfied this last 15 years.

    Good morning, this email is a month late but I wanted to say a big thank you to you for giving me the chance of having my hair cut and styled by Giuseppe. I was very impressed with the whole package, as most hairdressers fall down in different areas. It's be a very long time since I came out of a hairdressers completely satisfied. So well done and hope your training others to be like him. Many thanks again. One very happy customer.

    It took only one visit to Mova for me to decide that's the only place I'll ever go to for all my hairdressing needs! The salon is so relaxing, stylish, clean and friendly, all staff are welcoming and pay great attention to you and your needs. Alice cuts my hair and always does a perfect job while being upbeat and friendly, but I'd be happy to trust any of the Mova hairdressers with my hair!

    Jenny at Staines is amazing. She has cut my hair for the past 8 years. I cannot trust anyone else, Jenny is extremely talented and very kind. She is also very accommodating with my busy schedule and always tries her best to help. By far the best at MOVA.

    21-10-16 Mova in Staines - 5 Church Street. Excellent stylists and very modern salon. I have been going to them since they opened and highly recommend them. They have late nights Tuesday and Thursday and are open on Saturdays. All prices are shown on their website including special offers. Val

    Salon Review by Agnieszka
    Mova is my favourite salon and I love every stylist there. I have been there 10 times or more and I always come back. Today Alex did my hair again. She is extremely thorough and really listens to what I want. Whenever I bring photos with me she copies the hairstyle exactly as on the picture! I don't know how they do it but they are the best salon I have ever been to.

    Salon Review by Monica Allen

    My new favourite place! I went to Mova on the recommendation of my husband and I’m so happy I did! I have mid length curly wavy thick hair with no shape. When I came in I had a little tour of the salon and handed over a drinks menu and was offered a drink as I sat down. I got my haircut with Charlotte the salon manager and what a great experience we had a Consultation about my hair how I would like it cut and styled and Charlotte suggested what would suit me. We went through the shampoo and conditioner they were going to use and why and it was the nicest smelling products ever! I got a nice head massage and back rub and got to put my feet up while they were washing my hair. As Charlotte was cutting my hair she went through what she was going to do and put me at ease as some other places just do what they want and not what you’ve asked for. I love my hair cut not only have I got shape and style and feels so much more light and i’ve had so many compliments on it and I can’t stop swishing my hair around. Would highly recommend! Thanks Charlotte and the Team!

    Very busy but handled very well. Sean was patient with me seeing as this was my 1st time in a saloon as I'm a full blown barber boy.

    I was so pleased with your Staff on Wednesday morning, and in particular Alex that I've left a Google review and on Facebook too. People deserve to be recognised for doing a great job. Alex was really patient with our wriggly little boy for his 1st birthday haircut. Definitely will go back and with our toddler too!

    amazing experience, salon was lovely
    Tara Downham-russell
    I came in on training day, had my hair done by giorgia. I am very nervous when having my hair cut by someone different, not only did she make me feel relaxed beforehand, I was very pleased with the result and the patience she had as I have very thick hair. I would definitely have her cut my hair again.
    Hayley Taylor
