She has been part of the business for 12 years and is one of the longest standing Stylists. Fifi has an incredible client base and her clients refuse to go to any other Stylist. When she was out of action for a few months her clients simply did not go to another Stylist.
Atillio, also known as Louis began his career more than 20 years ago. His family introduced him to the Industry at a young age. He wanted to experience other industries and studied Medical Technology. In the medical industry for a very short time, Louis, missed the wondrous world of Barbering. As he says, the Industry chose him, not him the Industry. After a fair stint in SA, he decided to expand his knowledge in Barbering and worked for Barbershop in London, Stockholm, Dublin and Istanbul. After being abroad for 10 years, he missed home and came back. Upon his return, he read about Frank’s Barber Club and decided to “ contact and instruct us to interview him”. We were blown away with his skills. Louis invites you to come and experience his Rocking Passion for Barbering.

Aston didn’t like the way Barbers used to cut his hair and as a kid he decided to take the matters into his own hands. It took a lot of “flops” and “Wacky” hair days but eventually he got it right and started cutting the boys in his school for R50. Aston is outstanding on Patterns and Hair Art and although he is the youngest team member, he has already build a significant client base.
He is a very gifted but grounded young man. He invites you to experience that “Wow” factor in his workstation.
