    Salon Director


    At 14 years old, I began my hair journey at Wolverhampton and worked my way up through in-salon training and colour courses. By 19, I became a Master Colour Expert with extra expertise in curly and textured hair. I honed my craft at Walsall, completing management training and love cooking, reading, and planning holidays. Christmas is my favorite, and my dog is even named after a character from Elf!

    Senior Stylist


    Siobhan has been part of the Francesco's family since she left school 11 years ago. She began her journey as an Apprentice, working her way to earn the title of Senior Stylist and our in-salon Trainer! Siobhan has taken part in various photo shoots that have featured in Creative Head Magazine, which is a massive achievement for any stylist! Being one of our Aura Smoothing Specialists, Siobhan has incredible knowledge in smoothing products and treatments so can advise on the best way to tame unruly hair!

    Senior Stylist


    I've had some incredible years transforming hair! I started as a Saturday stylist at 14 and trained with Francesco Hair Salon at 16. I was a proud Silver winner of UK Trend Vision 2016 and am a Wella Master Colour expert with a flair for creative styling. I have featured in competitions, Creative Head magazines and numerous photoshoots. I'm passionate about bringing your hair dreams to life, so let's get creative together! I'm also a Mum to a 4-year-old and our family adventures with 2 dogs keep life exciting!
