Maurizio Contato

NO LIMITS TO OUR CREATIVITY

for over 25 years, our passion is growing, turning, better for you. Today Maurice and his staff have become an experience where creativity and professionalism meet..

Maurizio Contato was born in 1959 in Alessandria, Italy. His first experiment with the world of hairdressing was an attempt to color hair using liquid coffee. At 14, against the wishes of his parents, who wanted him to take a job in a bank, he decided to take a course at the local school of hairdressing. He had already earned the money to pay for the course from working as an assistant in a hairdressing salon. After just six months of the obligatory two-year apprenticeship, the school manager recognised Contato's talent and straight away hired him for his own salon. Today, the Creative Director of the Italian Group, Art Hair Studios, has three salons in Alessandria with around 20 employees.
