Flowers and plants give us the inspiration and energy to carry out our work. Every day in our salon, we create the most perfect mix of these precious elements for our clients, revitalising their hair thanks to our “ConLeMani” method.
“ConLeMani” is our philosophy, a mental attitude favouring nature and eco-sustainability on our planet; a set of pure elements, with which we completely replace traditional, chemical cosmetics.
The atmosphere in the salon takes us back to our primordial state, no plastic, no synthetic chemicals, just a respectful and pure environment, created and desired through listening to nature.
When you enter a forest or look at the sea or sky and everything around you seems to smell of joy, this is what Organic Italian Hairdressing stands for, not just a simple hair salon.
