Meet the Team

Expertise and attention at your service

An excellent staff is an essential part of the salon: their first goal is to understand your needs and give you the joy of a special beauty experience.

Fabio Alfano
founder

In the early ’90s, this career chose me, rather than the other way around.
It all began in a small town in southern Italy, Giffoni (the city of cinema), at my father’s salon from the age of 15, when I began learning things books could never teach me. Working with hair quickly became my passion: this quest to innovate and improve my craft led me to discoveries around Italy, where I acquired new skills. At age 19, I made a first stop in Florence for a few months, later moving to Bologna for 5 years.

London became my home in the new millennium, and the British hairdressing industry altered my perspective. I was able to join Toni&Guy and was assigned to their flagship Mayfair salon along with Toni, his brother Anthony and their amazing team, and later joined their academy as an educator.

In 2006, I had the “Tokyo calling”:  a job offer as a director for a Western hair salon. After spending 10 years there, which included hair events and working with some celebrities, I decided to continue living my dream and to achieve my goal of sharing my knowledge teaching others. Welcome to FA Hairdressing.

Shingo
Senior stylist

Hi, I’m Shingo from Hakodate, Hokkaido, in northern Japan.

After graduating from a beauty school in my hometown, I moved to a salon in Kamakura, near Tokyo.

However, my desire to acquire international hairdressing experience brought me to meet Fabio in Tokyo, in 2013. I then became his assistant, and then I followed Fabio with the opening of FA Hairdressing.

I consider myself fortunate that under the FA Education training I gained not just my cutting and color skills but an amazing life journey,  embracing the majority of Western clients to improve my English language skills.

My hairdressing lifestyle goes beyond just a job.



Aya
Stylist

My name is Aya and I’m from Tachikawa, in western Tokyo. Since a very young age, I discovered and fell in love with beauty, in particular hair styling.

After graduating beauty college, I joined a local salon, but, soon after, I discovered FA Hairdressing. I was thrilled for this opportunity and joined this amazing team as an apprentice in April 2019. Throughout the FA salon apprenticeship and the FA education training , I learned the art of international haircutting and color, such as its unique techniques and mindset, as well as gaining first-hand knowledge of the daily operations of a top-salon. 

Diligently and passionately working towards my goals, I am very excited to have graduated and passed all my assessments becoming a stylist from January 2022,  but under FA Education philosophy we never stop learning!!! 

I love the international and friendly atmosphere at FA Hairdressing, which has given me the opportunity to learn and greatly improve my English skills and meet some extraordinary people from around the world!

I’m looking forward to learning more each day and meeting you all at FA Salon!

Chi
Senior stylist

My name is Chi! I’m from Chiba where I grew up and trained to be a hairdresser in the early 90s. Since my early days as a stylist, I have never stopped loving my work!

At the beginning of this millennium, I took on a new challenge and moved to London to improve my craft and skills. I was lucky enough to work in a prestigious Knightsbridge salon for a decade and enjoyed this invaluable experience, working as one of their Senior Stylists, specialising in colour, cutting and styling.

In 2009, I moved back to Japan and joined an international hair salon in Tokyo where I met Fabio, who, at that time, was the manager. We spent a few years working together with an amazing team.

I then became a mom and slowed my work down to accommodate my new full-time duties.

In April 2022, I got the opportunity to join FA Salon and didn’t think twice before saying yes!

I’m so thrilled to be a part of this fantastic FA team, and can’t wait to meet all of you, for a hair journey to remember!

Yoshie
stylist

Hi, my name is Yoshie. I’m from Ishinomaki in Miyagi prefecture.

From a young age, being creative with hair has been my passion!
I pursued this dream and, in 2007, I graduated from a beauty school in Sendai, following a year at Shiseido Academy in Tokyo.

I developed my skills for four years in a hair salon in Saitama and my ever-growing passion for hairstyling brought me to join a Tokyo blow dry bar salon where I spent 6 years.

I loved to blow dry and style hair but discovering FA Salon in September 2022 made me realize that I could, and wanted, do much more with my career; with Fabio & team I have been given an amazing opportunity to learn English, improve my skills, FA education program and daily at salon, my skills made me confident to easy approach and communicate also with western type.

My journey at FA Salon, is not just learning haircut and color but is an exciting life experience!

Outside of work, hiking is one of my hobbies along with spending quality time with my family.

I’m looking forward to meeting you soon.
