Argento Hairdressing

Enjoy the laid back friendliness of the countryside with the top hairdressing skills of the city.

They might be tucked out of the way in a little backwater in a teeny tiny Somerset village but Argento Hairdressing are totally in the swim of things where your crowning glory is concerned.

Janine Biss and husband Jason Marino ran salons in Bristol before setting up in a converted barn in the tiny village of Barton St David, between Shepton Mallet and Somerton.

Janine started her career as an apprentice in Somerset before travelling around world as a stylist and graduating from the prestigious GHD Graduate Styling programme, and is now a L’Oreal Colour Specialist training other hairdressers around the UK. Every year she’s part of the team that works on the models’ hair at the internationally renowned London Fashion Week. You might see her work on the front cover of a magazine. Jason took a photography degree before turning to hairdressing, so he’s got an amazing eye.  Superb Senior Stylist Jen Andrews trained at Frontline in Wells and keeps skills up to date with L’Oreal and top hair salons in London and Scotland.

Outward not inward looking, they never stop learning. So expect new trends, cutting edge techniques and the latest products from the eco-friendly, plant-based Aveda and natural-no-nasties Italian Davines ranges. Did I mention that Jason is half Italian?

Come for colour (natch) – a natural looking balayage perhaps? Come for silky smooth hair – their anti-frizz system lasts up to 5 months. Come for a top quality cut or re-style. You’ll leave looking gorgeous.
