These days, communication’s constant.
We live in a weirdly wonderful age of updating statuses and scrolling through tweets, where people are almost always sharing some version of themselves. Whether through signs, symbols, looks or language, it’s gloriously inescapable.
At Zucci, we understand the importance of communication. More importantly, we get that when you express yourself, you want to express exactly that. We know the way you look impacts upon the way you feel – that perfect colouring can make everything rosy, that great cut can grow confidence.
But we don’t just want to style you. We want to find your style. That’s why the Zucci experience is all about your personal input. We work with your wants and wishes, using a mixture of your thoughts and our techniques to find something that specifically caters to your personality. So that you can feel confident, the next time you share yourself with the world.
Zucci – Uniquely You
Rocco Petrucci opened the doors at Zucci Hairdressing’s Ivanhoe salon on the 1st of October 1984. Over 34 years later, Zucci Hairdressing has carved a distinctive path through Melbourne’s hairdressing landscape.
The Zucci brand was born from the desire to create a team of outstanding stylists and colourists.
A commitment to training, learning and personal development has become the epitome of the Zucci brand. It’s through this commitment that Zucci attracts unique and talented individuals – those seeking to go beyond, furthering their potential to be the best they can be.
The team at Zucci Hairdressing are committed to the vision of continually developing highly skilled and professional individuals. Injecting high quality hairdressers into Zucci Hairdressing, apprentices’ talents are nurtured and their skills developed through the Zucci Academy, where all training is undertaken.
Stylists and colourists across all levels are encouraged to engage in industry events and competitions, further developing their skills and knowledge, which are then passed on to every guest at every salon. The continual development and growth of the Zucci team ensure each guest experiences a supreme service and result.
Rocco Petrucci – Director and Founder
When I started hairdressing 38 years ago, I was inspired by the freedom of creativity I had every time I picked up a pair of scissors to start creating that new look. I love the multifaceted nature of hairdressing – we style, cut, colour, primp and prime – which affects not only the wider world of fashion and style, but an individual’s everyday life; a haircut can define a generation, and those looks are created by us. I am still as excited today, every time I step into the salon, as I was when I executed my first haircut over 3 decades ago.
Hairdressing has enabled me to travel the world, enriching my sphere of creativity through connection with like-minded people I have met and worked with. Every Zucci salon teems with the energy of creativity and the consideration of the experience of each guest.
We spend the whole day making people look and feel fabulous. How good is that?!
