Remy Hair and Beauty
REMY the man:
Heralding from Sicily, Remy first exhibited his natural talents whilst being an apprentice with maestro Di Lucca, continued with Di Lucca in Milan, followed by moving to Carita in Paris. By the late ‘60s England began to emerge as the hair fashion capital, and so Remy knew that this is where he must go to further his career.
In the UK, Remy worked with companies Vidal Sassoon and Leonard before teaming up with 3 fellow hairdressers to open a beautiful salon; Capelli.
By the late ‘70s Remy began an association with the Mascolo Brothers by opening a new salon named “Remy, Toni & Guy” which although was very successful, a few years later Remy decided to follow his own path. Remy soon established himself as one of the most respected names in the industry with his work influencing many of the trends in hair fashion.
The “Remy Team” present these new techniques and styles by appearing on the world stages (Europe, USA, Japan and beyond) demonstrating their hair fashion collections in front of sold out venues. Remy was also honoured to take part in the World Hairdressing Congress, which took place at the Albert Hall.
Remy presented with the “Princess Carlotta Award” for his contribution to the industry, and holds the Freedom Of The City” granted for artistic contribution from the cities of Florence & Milan. These events and lectures showed a glimpse into these new techniques, and an outstanding example of this balance of Avante-Garde and the commercial style: EG …Razor Cut, which was re-launched with a new slant, resulting in free stokes that didn’t damage the hair.
Channel Cut, the Crest, the Pixie collections, Alternative Bob, Weave, in fact the list is endless, and help create the frame work on which many hairdressers across the world would later base their training. Remy opened more salons in Leicester, Nottingham and Duke Street, London.
Opened 2 hair education schools with Vidal Sassoon (London & Leicester) The industry recognised his achievements and was the first Italian to hold the coveted post of Artistic Director of Intercoiffure and twice winner at the British Hair Awards.
REMY the brand:
It was a sad day this summer when Remy passed away, but his legacy will continue and can never be forgotten. Remy’s dedicated, intense training regime, which must be completed before being allowed onto the salon floor, has been filtered down to the entire “Remy Team” to ensure the client the best standard of hair care in order to achieve an image which both expresses the client’s personality and flatters their appearance.
One-half of the new management duo, Director Sho Barber (yes, that is his real surname!), has worked under the close guidance of Remy for 17 years and has graced many international stages alongside Remy at his infamous hair seminars, thus cementing Sho’s knowledge of hair. Remy are also proud to announce two newly qualified stylists ready on the floor, Corey & Shannice, who have both trained under the nurturing guidance of Remy.
Clients will see a familiar face, Christiano Lanza, return to the salon on a regular basis. Christiano, who completed his apprenticeship with Remy before moving to Sassoon, and now provides educational seminars around the globe providing educational training using his unique talent in colour.
The other half of the new management team is Marc Fuccio (Remy’s son/ Director at Remy), who is now a regular face at the salon since taking over the general running of the salon.
Remy Hair & Beauty Salon can be found in the elegant conservation area of New Walk, where the Michael Collins design reflects the charm of its environment along the stunning tree lined Victorian promenade. Marc and the family would like to thank everyone for their continued support over these past few tough and gruelling months.
