Of mixed Italian/Slovenian descent Lori grew up in Trieste, near Venice. Her training spanned both Italy and the UK before finally settling in London in 2004.

Her inspiration towards a hairdressing career grew from too many terrible childhood haircuts at her local hairdresser in Trieste. ‘I wanted to save people from so many bad hair days!’

In London, fashion initially motivated her towards hair styling for photo shoots but she moved away from the competitive catwalk world towards Shine’s relaxed, community focused salon. Lori enjoys the psychological challenge of hairdressing, firstly  listening and then most importantly, understanding clients wishes, fears and desires. Because of these skills she has a built a loyal following at the Stoke Newington Church Street branch.

Lori works for us a week a month to accommodate her busy clientele while spending the rest of her time back in Trieste so booking in advance is essential.
