The team at Marc Antoni Fleet Salon celebrates 20 years since they first opened. They are one of four salons within the Marc Antoni Group.
Since opening in 2002, the Marc Antoni Fleet Salon has gone from strength to strength. The brand has built a renowned salon team that have worked backstage and on stage at many industry events. They have won many industry awards and have established themselves as one of the leading salons within the area.
Running the salon as Fleet Salon Director is Marcus Giamattei, current Southern Hairdresser of the Year and a member of the Marc Antoni Artistic who continue to wave the flag of quality and excellence for the Marc Antoni Group and British hairdressing at events all over the UK, Europe and in China. Working alongside Marcus is Dan Spiller, who manages the Fleet salon and is a highly regarded colour specialist and is the JOICO Colour Ambassador for the UK, EU Ireland. Dan has also won a numerous number of awards over the years for his creativity skills including British Hairdressing Awards Newcomer of the Year in 2010, The Visionary Award in 2011 at The It list Awards and is also within the Marc Antoni Artistic Team that has won the British Hairdressing Awards Artistic Team of the Year category twice, in 2014 and 2018.
20th Anniversary Celebrations
The salon, like many others has seen challenges and changes since they opened in 2022. They have seen many changes within the industry and the way things work and, of course, the Covid 19 pandemic. They managed to ride the storm, bouncing back to bring the same energy to the salon as before. The team plan to celebrate their 20th Anniversary in style by planning 2002 themed days. They will serve a selection of refreshments to clients and the reveal of several additions to their shop front including an exclusive 20 year anniversary logo.
“Fleet wasn’t an easy place to crack but once the ball got rolling it was great,” says Marcus. “It took two years of really hard work to get people through the door but all of a sudden it felt like we turned a corner and we were so busy. Did we think we would be here 20 years? We’ve always gone into things thinking we will be successful and twenty years have gone by so quickly, the only reason I know we’ve been here so long is because when we started I had no white hair!.”
“I moved from the Bracknell salon to the Fleet salon to become Manager in 2012,” adds Dan. “This was a fantastic opportunity for me to grow within the company and I enjoyed the challenge it brought me within my career journey. I also loved the Fleet area and the sense of community it had, which made me further excited to join the team there.”
