Our Team

We have a great team of senior stylists, all which were fully trained at Valentino’s. We pride ourselves in the fact that most of our trainees have stayed on with us and have helped form a consistent, friendly environment within the salon.

ADEM | Director-Senior Stylist

I’m the team leader at Valentino’s Hair Design and I lead by example.

I am humorous and love interacting with people. My wife Cilla and I own and operate Valentino’s. I have been in the industry for almost forty years and I’m still as passionate about hairdressing as when I started at sixteen years old.

My motto has always been – take the time and do it right.

This has stood me in good stead and would like to think that’s why my clients and my staff have all been extremely loyal to me.

I specialize in cutting and I love to see people happy and comfortable about themselves when they leave the salon.

I'm the newest member of Valentino's.  I'm looking forward to learning and extending my knowledge in the industry.  I look forward to seeing you at Valentino's.

CILLA | Director-Senior Stylist

My passion is hairdressing and has been since I was sixteen years old. I have more than thirty years experience in the industry, twenty-four of which have been with Valentino’s Hair Design.

Currently I’m working behind the scenes training our apprentices, managing the stock levels, ordering the products and ensuring we have the latest.

My husband Adem and I pride ourselves in the fact that all our current senior operators are all Valentino’s trained and have all stayed on with us which provides a stable, consistent base for our clients.

Our clients really enjoy coming in, knowing everyone really well and being part of the friendly welcoming environment we provide.

Glen, senior hair stylist

GLEN | Senior Stylist

I have been in the industry for almost thirty years.

I originally trained at Valentino’s Hair Design at the age of nineteen.  After completing my training I decided to spread my wings and widen my experiences for a few years and worked elsewhere. Now that i have returned, I love working back at Valentino’s, with Adem and the team.

I specialise in cutting, styling and colouring  and enjoy learning the latest techniques.   I am always enthusiastic and excited creating beautiful bridal hair-ups.

Tori, Hair Stylist at Valentino's

TORI | Senior Stylist

I completed my training at Valentino’s Hair Design and have worked here now, more than ten years.

I aspired to be a hairdresser from the age of 16 because I love working with people in a fun, exciting, ever changing industry, because I’m a fun loving and exciting kind of girl. Hairdressing lets me express my creative side.

I am passionate about and specialise in formal and wedding hair ups. I am also able to incorporate new season’s styles and fashions in my own cutting and colour work.

Adem is an inspiring team leader whom I have a great friendship with and we very much enjoy working together.

Hairdresser stylist Aimee

AIMEE | Advanced Stylist

I really enjoy and specialise in doing Rockabilly hair-styles.

I have been hair-dressing more than six years.  My interest and strengths in hairdressing would be cutting and styling.  For those women who love the Rockabilly styles, I’m YOUR girl.  I also love setting hair into glamourous, feminine fifties style hair-ups.

I am a modern girl who loves fashion and keeping up with today’s trends. I have always loved art and being artistic flows into my hairdressing.

Hair Stylist Rachael

RACHAEL | Advanced Stylist

I’ve been with Valentino’s now for more than four years. With a big smile, I greet my clients.

I specialise in cutting and colouring; balayage is my number one.

I’m one of the happy team members and I’m looking forward to taking care of you as a client at Valentino’s.

Hair dresser trainee Ruey

RUEY | Second Year Trainee

Prior to hairdressing, I had a great interest in art and design. I am a very talented artist and hairdressing is artistry that is why I believe I’m going to make a very good one.

I’m looking forward to learning and moving forward in my apprenticeship, with the help from the experienced staff I’m working with at Valentino’s.
