Franco’s background in art and music has given him a creative flair when it comes to hair! Franco has been training and advancing his love for hair design his whole life - he won several competitions and trophies doing hair, and won B.C. hairdressing championships 3 years in a row! At just 17 years old Franco had the opportunity to work in some leading hair salons in Victoria through his hairdressing school and at the young age of 19 opened his very first salon named “Italian coiffeurs”. Franco would then travel to Italy and New York and further advance his training and went on to win several more trophies!
Franco has been in the hair business for 56 years and has run four salons in his time, eventually landing at the Red Mirror Salon alongside his wife Christel and daughter Marisa where they continue to build up their family business.
Franco's love for people and finding beauty in creating a look for them has been a lifelong journey and accomplishment. He's been growing our wonderful clientele for over 50 years!
