Paolo - Director
Hunters Hill: Tue. Thu. Fri. Sat.
As a child my goal in life was to be one of three things, a racing car driver, a dentist or a hairdresser.
So, at the young age of 16 I began my hairdressing career and through my training I was fortunate enough to be taught and inspired by many amazing and talented individuals, who in their own right are renowned within the industry.
In 1982 I started as an apprentice at Jean Louis David in Bologna, Italy. From Bologna, I continued my apprenticeship with Zeo Baldi group in 1985. Seven of the salons were centred in Bologna, Reggio Emilia, Modena and Milano. With this valuable exposure, I ventured on as a hair stylist and participated in many international fashion shows which comprised of fashion houses like Fendi, Roberto Cavalli and Max Mara. I also became one of the official hair stylists for Miss Italy.
In the year of 2000, I came to Sydney for love and in 2003 I founded Milano Hair Studio alongside my wife and business partner Maria.
