Originally from Italy, Antonio’s hairdressing career began in England where, at only 16, he landed a job as apprentice to Raymond Bessone. Bessone, known as Mr. Teasy Weasy, was internationally renowned; he trained Vidal Sassoon, was the first hairdresser to have his own television show, and set forth the concept of dying hair bright bold colors (pink! green!). Antonio studied intently there for four years before setting up his own shop in Cambridge, England. Life and an enterprising spirit led Antonio to the states and, in 2013, he opened the now-acclaimed Antonio Salon. A healthy work-life balance, inherent in his European roots, would define the culture of his Seattle shop. He envisioned a bright, modern space that clients would love to visit as much as his team would love to work in. Antonio cultivates a happy, creative environment where he can see clients - meticulous cuts are his forte - as well as use his 30 years of experience to mentor apprentices.
Brooke honed her technical cutting skills as a graduate of Vidal Sassoon Academy and then by studying alongside Antonio. She is now a master of every cut, from textured pixies to sleek long layers. As our salon’s Director of Education, Brooke uses her valued expertise to develop a highlevel curriculum for apprentices and new hires. Brooke’s passion for hair and beauty was sparked by growing up in a household of five girls. She remains thankful to her sisters for always giving her someone to play hairdresser with.
