Luca has lived and breathed hairdressing since he was a 14 year old boy. He was compelled to cut and style his mum’s hair in the kitchen after watching her work as a hairdresser herself. He joined a salon as a young apprentice and 24 years later he has opened his own salon called Kitch inspired from those early days in that kitchen!
Although Luca hasn’t yet made a name for himself in front of the camera his hair styles, cuts and colours and styling sessions for celebrities certainly have; including working with Kylie’s dancing team, Stacey Dooley, Jessie J, Alexandra Burk, Anastasia, Louise Redknapp, Michelle Visage, Emily Atack and numerous other stars from Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing on Ice, Celebrity Juice and Eurovision. He has also styled editorially for Vogue and ASOS and TV series The Masked singer, This Time Next Year, This Morning, Saturday Night Takeaway plus events such as The Alternative Hair Show, Creative Head, Enigma, Cheshire Bride, DV8. He was nominated for best hairstyling for Aesthetica short film awards.
He has headed a team at London Fashion Week for Gomez Garcia and for 19 years has been in demand as a session stylist creating looks for photoshoots and fashion shows. He has also created looks for music videos for talent such as The Kooks, Kylie Minogue, Laura MVula, Lucy Rose and Espa.
Luca has carved an impressive career designing and teaching Modern Bride courses for bride-styling-wannabes; sharing his advanced knowledge of techniques and hints/tips for the bride based on 5 looks that can be adapted and tweaked to the individuals’ needs. He also runs a course mentoring photographers giving them first hand advice to help create their vision in a photoshoot.
He is very confident when talking about hair styling and is able to create the perfect look under the gaze of a crowded room. He taught NVQ hairdressing for 5 years and also freelanced at top London film and fashion university Delemar academy teaching hair up and styling.
You may notice a soft Manchester accent when he chats which is from his many years living in Manchester and you’ll certainly detect a Welsh accent having been born there. He loves to encourage fun self-expression with a luxury edge.
The new salon, Kitch Hair is a 1950s kitchen inspired space. Luca and his partner Scott enjoy styling for all genders and the salon is known as a neutral safe space.
Kitch is not a traditional barbers which excludes women and the LGBT community nor are they another soulless salon.
At KITCH they aim to offer the highest standards alongside a unique salon experience, with the comfort and relaxed feeling of having your hair done at home in the kitchen with friends. At Kitch, your hair knows no gender. They treat everyone as equals by providing a price list based on hair length, time and products not gender.
