“Where Beauty Comes Naturally”
The Fiorio Beauty Academy was established to create a stylist that would possess the same vision and passion that is recognized with the Fiorio name. The Fiorio Beauty Academy is a learning institution, as well as a working salon. We have created an environment that allows the students to gain the talent, confidence, and knowledge they need to apply the current trends and looks of today’s demanding styles.
Our courses offer training and education for the novice to the experienced stylist. We teach the Fiorio cutting, colour and styling techniques. In addition, students are educated on the current trends and styles of the industry. This knowledge and awareness enables students to unleash their inner potential by sparking a creative passion for hair.

The FIORIO Philosophy
The FIORIO Philosophy is about styling hair that’s realistic and beautiful. Be it natural, sleek, or tousled and sexy, it’s always simple to wear, stunning to look at and easy to manage. With hair as an integral part of our personal identity, our goal at Fiorio is to create successful haircuts that work for the individual.
While it may take courage to change your image, reinventing your look keeps us interesting to others and ourselves. Hairstyling and colouring give you that opportunity to experiment with your hair, and at Fiorio you have the freedom to choose.
