Antica Barbieria Colla wishes to address not only private clients and the retail sector, but also all those Italian and foreign professional realities that share its values

“I do take care of hair, beard and skin first of all because I know them and I treat them according to their features and health condition, and often also according to client’s health condition and mood. A head, a face is the expression and also the perfect essence of a man’s life. So I get it,  understand it and process it based on my humble art, giving my client his perfect expression”.

(Franco Bompieri, Antica Babrieria “Colla” Ovvero della salute dei capelli, Feltrinelli, 1980)
