BRIERLEY Hill hair salon Capelli Hairdressing has celebrated 30 years in business.

Proud salon owner Flora Bianco has told how chuffed she is to have such a loyal customer base of male and female clients and to have mentored 25 apprentices and stylists over three decades.

Established in Dudley Road in 1994, the salon was inspired by courses at Toni & Guy Academy and continuous skill honing remains at the forefront of hairstyling.

Salon owner Flora Bianco said: “I started in 1994 and have had a very full career - also establishing hairdressing salons in Amblecote, Stourbridge and Droitwich too.

“We’ve mentored 25 apprentices and stylists - some have gone on to have their own business which I’m very proud of.

“As we celebrate this milestone, the team is more passionate than ever about creating stunning hair looks. Our journey has been incredible, building a loyal client base that feels like family.”

Brierley Hill and Wordsley South ward councillors Adam Davies and Wayne Little joined Flora and her team to celebrate the anniversary.

Cllr Davies said: “Businesses like Capelli are more than just a business, they’re part of our community and Flora is a fantastic example to anyone who is looking to setup their own local business.

“The team have earned themselves a loyal customer base by looking after their clients – young and old – for three decades. Capelli is a real asset to Brierley Hill and I wish the team every continuing success for the future.”

Cllr Little added: “It was great to join Flora, the team and some of their customers to mark this special milestone for what is a much-loved and longstanding local business.”
