About

Ladies & Gents Hairdressing in Ipswich

Francesco Hair Salon, a popular family business, has been in St Matthews Street for over 22 years. It was established by Franco, who has been in the hairdressing business for well over 40 years in Ipswich, opening his first salon ‘Franco’s’ in Upper Orwell Street, Ipswich in 1979.

After running his first salon very successfully for almost 20 years, Franco then sold the salon and moved back to native Italy with his family. Here he opened a salon called ‘The Cutting Gallery’ in his hometown within the Campania region. Franco & his family lived in Italy for several years before eventually deciding to move back to Ipswich, which is when Francesco Hair Salon was born!

The salon has continued to grow over the last few years to one of the best known barbers & hairdressers in Ipswich and now all three of Franco’s sons, Giovanni, Ciro & Fabio have followed him into the trade.

We are best known in Ipswich for our exclusive gents barbering, male grooming and exceptional ladies hairdressing – and we are committed to giving a professional service to every client at all times.

The salon is registered with the National Hairdressers Federation (NHF) and all of our stylists are State Registered Hairdressers with The Hair Council. Franco has been awarded the Master Crafstman in hairdressing by the Hair Council.

For men we offer a full barbers service, including traditional cutting, precision cutting, fashion cutting, wet shaves, flat tops and (unfortunately) all of your typical barber shop banter! We are proud to have been Accredited by the British Barbers Association.

For ladies we offer a complete hairdressing service, where you will be looked after by one of our very experienced stylists in our luxury salon. We are passionate about your hair and love cutting-in the latest trends, love colour and technical work and also offer in wedding hair or prom hair packages for that big day.

Since 2007, Giovanni has also been able to offer a trichology service for clients with hair loss or scalp problems, as he is the only fully qualified trichologist in Suffolk. Giovanni has now moved his clinic – Ipswich Trichology – next door to the salon. For full information visit his website at www.ipswichtrichology.co.uk

We offer a gents walk-in service, while we recommend that ladies book an appointment by calling 01473 400034, but it is not always necessary.
