Cristiano arrived in London from his native Sardinia in 1997, where he became an apprentice and underwent both his college training and the Richard Ward in-salon training programme. He quickly developed a busy and loyal clientele which has continued to grow and now includes a host of high profile celebrities and European royalty.
His versatility and creativity in dressing hair, from glamorous red carpet looks to bridal hair, together with his cutting-edge ability to develop signature classic cuts have hastened his industry reputation as not only an integral part of the RW team, but a mover and shaker industry-wide when it comes to all things fashion and hair.
Working closely with L’Oreal’s Portfolio of Artistic Hairdressers, 2016 saw Cristiano taking on the prestigious role of Lead Stylist for Christopher Raeburn: Fashion in Motion at the V&A, and also saw him lead his team as a Guest Artist at the Grand Final of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy. 2017 shows no signs of slowing down; among shows, presentations and clients, Cristiano recently shot 14 international covers for Cosmopolitan with model-of-the-moment, Victoria’s Secret Angel Taylor Hill.
