Alessandro Employed

Alessandro Conforti’s training started in Rome in 1996 and continued in Milan where he had the opportunity to work within the fashion industry. He moved on to Barcelona where he found a completely different expression of fashion, and then finally in 2003 moved to London, the city of every imaginable style, and found his home!

After five years in London Alessandro came across a business that reflected his views on how a work environment should be. That was Shine holistic. He joined Shine management team and in 2009 was instrumental in the creation and opening of Shine on the Green which he now manages and co-owns with Carla Octigan.

‘For me, it’s not just a business to run, it’s the place I always dreamed of working in’.

He has hand chosen a great team at Newington Green and has expanded his passion for training the next generation of Shine stylists.

” Hairdressing is a fascinating world, that can lead you to explore many exciting situations trough your career, but only,….. if you are always ready for new challenges! And that’s why after 25 years…I still love what I do!”

Recently, Alessandro also had the great honour to be part of   the Hair&Makeup team in the latest episodes of:

  Dysney ” Star Wars” and   Marvel ” Black Widow “ .

Arranging your daughter’s wedding day make up and hair is a pleasure but also a pressure when she doesn’t live in the area. I use Shine for both hair and beauty so I got in touch with Sandro who arranged a trial day for my daughter. The two girls were great and very professional and ,y daughter was happy. On the big day they arrived on the dot and did a fantastic job she looked beautiful! Delighted Mum. Annie J

I have been a customer of Shine on the Green since it opened and cannot recommend it highly enough. Sandro and the team are both extremely professional and very accommodating, helping me through the never ending journey of colour changes and styles over the years. The salon is spotlessly clean and visiting there is a relaxing experience despite it always being busy. I have moved away from the area and make a special journey every few weeks as I have been unable to find another salon up to this standard. They are so good they even did my hair and some of my guests on my wedding day!!!
Thanks Claire.

I honestly cannot praise Sandro and his team enough! Sandro totally changed the way I look (and feel)!! I arrived with limp, heavy and boring flat hair and left with a wonderful haircut and an amazingly vibrant (though subtle) hair colour. Sandro's balayage technique is second to none and the quality of his work and attention to detail is outstanding. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sandro and the Shine team to those who want a truly outstanding service! Will definitely be back!!
Thanks Claudia.

I have been having my hair cut by Sandro at Shine for about the last 7 years and I love it. He's guided me from long hair to a zero on the sides. The atmosphere is always welcoming, friendly, relaxed and calm. You always come out feeling relaxed, refreshed and a whole lot sharper.
