Originally from  Bari on the South East coast of Italy, Nicola moved to Manchester in November 1999.

He followed in the family tradition by training to become an hairdresser – he worked in the family salon from the age of 10 with his father.

Before his move to the UK, Nicola worked for a number of companies, big and small, all across Italy.  His bug for travel and adventure eventually brought him to England.  Nicola found a job at Nino Milano almost immediately and worked there for the previous owners until he took over the running of the salon himself in 2006.

Nicola enjoys cutting hair and looking after his customers but his favourite part of the job is training and advising his staff and colleagues, particularly about colours techniques.
