Mario’s passion for the hair industry must be genetic; his mother was a hairdresser and her father was a barber. After completing his apprenticeship and working as a stylist in Melbourne, Mario returned to his home-town Adelaide in 2018.
"I love creating beautiful and fun hair, yet something that is easy to manage at home” says Mario. His aim is to create a personal style tailored to the client based off a collaborative discussion.
Mario describes himself as "the love child of Gianni Versace and Stevie Nicks". If you’re sitting in Mario’s chair you’ll find him a friendly guy always wanting to get to know people, understand their way of life and how that applies to their hair.
After a week in the salon, Mario is generally curled in a ball at home watching David Attenborough documentaries or cooking videos on YouTube while telling his partner 'I'm gonna make that tomorrow', knowing full well he has no intention to actually do so.
