Roberto/Robert/Rob/Bob, whatever you want to call him - within reason.
Rob is the salon owner and style consultant. He has been part of the hairdressing world all his life with his family owning several successful salons throughout Berkshire. Rob himself has been cutting hair since 1995 and has been a salon owner since 2009. He is also an experienced educator, and has trained many excellent and successful hairdressers who are still in the industry today. Previously owning a large, busy and well known salon on Windsor high street, he wanted to do something a little different and so decided with his wife, Lucy, to open a much smaller and more relaxing, hygge inspired boutique salon in the quaint village of Sunninghill, Ascot.
Over the years Rob has built an exceptionally large clientele base; both male and female. His clients come from all over the world as well as the UK from which he has built many lasting friendships. Rob specialises in curly hair, short hair and mens haircuts. His strengths lie in precision hair cuts and loves nothing more than a challenge!
Lucy owns and runs the salon alongside her husband Rob. She is usually your first port of call at Figoli, managing all bookings. As well as looking after the business from behind the scenes she is a busy mum to two young children. Lucy has a passion for beauty and was previously trained in makeup by Bare Minerals. This grew her interest in natural and ethical beauty products which led her and Rob to choose to work with Philip Martins product range.
At the salon she focuses her time on hair extensions. London trained, she is now a hair extensions specialist. Over the last 10 years of wearing them herself, she has tried and tested various techniques and methods and understands the needs of the clients very well.
Lucy's eye for detail and style has come together to create the exceptional and unique style of the salon; put together with Rob's exceptional hair styling talents and years of experience they have created this unique family business together and welcome all clients, old and new to their beautiful space.
