HC Salon opened its doors in July 2016 in Turin, in Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, 9 and, thanks to the team’s commitment, the salon grew quickly. In December 2019 the salon took on a much bigger space in a second location, in Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, 32.
HC Salon did not limit itself to Turin and in July 2021 a new shop opened in downtown Florence. Even the pandemic could not stop the opening of yet another HC Salon in Monza, in November 2021. HC Salon represents a dream come true, a business that cannot be described in words, but must be experienced. When you step foot in one of these salons there is an overwhelming sense of positive energy. The determination of these young people to push their own limits and surpass their own expectations is palpable. They love their work and the big family they have created. They are fully aware that they are fully responsible for their own growth.
