(Owner & Founder)

Influenced by a life full of travel and culture, the salon encompasses her love for fashion and beauty and is her stunning vision brought to life – all designed, styled and curated by Hardia herself.

A graduate of the prestigious Sassoon Academy, she has travelled the world not only helping men and women create their perfect style, but also taking in all of the sites and cultures that it has to offer. The Colour Palette salon is her tribute to all of the beautiful things she’s seen on around the world and is truly a gem in the heart of Berkshire. As well as her many talents in the hairdressing world, she is also an accomplished make up artist, stylist and interior designer.

She recognises talent after her extensive work in the industry and has endeavored to bring a team together of extensively trained, well know hair stylists, technicians and beauticians to give you that high end, luxury London experience without the lengthy travel or the hefty price tag that comes with it.

Add to this the unique lounge areas, perfect for those waiting companions or even people that just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all, prepare to experience the new hub on the high street, because trust us, once you join us you’re never going to want to leave.

(Creative Director)

Alessio fell in love with hairdressing at the age of just 15 and has continued to strive for perfection in his field ever since.

After studying and perfecting his craft in his picturesque hometown of Turin, Italy, he moved to London in 2001 to not only start to conquer the competitive market but to perfect the language too. In just four years, Alessio joined the world-renowned team at Sassoon after learning of the legendary hairdresser in his studies.

After working his way up in the salon, building a loyal client base and honing his skills during the intense qualifying process, in 2010 Alessio took his quality and passion to the Sasson London Academy where he became a cutting instructor, inspiring and directing other passionate people in the trade to become their best selves.

Flash forward to now and Alessio has been working as a distinguished Creative Director at the Sassoon Academy since 2016 where his stunning work has seen him travel the world, showcasing his talents at industry shows and seminars in countries such as Korea, Taiwan and India.

Alessio joins The Colour Palette team as Creative Director, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge and skill, the likes of which can be seen in iD Magazine, The Times Magazine and for celebrity clients such as Lily Allen.

I’ve got nearly 7 years experience in the Nail Industry, where I’ve had a successful business offering a mobile nail service. I’m CND trained, and have also done my CND Master Artist certification, so I’m trained to the highest level in CND Shellac.

I have also enjoyed experience as a Session Manicurist. I have worked at Paris and London Fashion Weeks, where I have been Team Lead. Some of my career achievements include ‘Pedicurist of the Year’ 2015 finalist, and ‘Mobile Nailist of the Year’ 2016 finalist, in the Scratch Stars Awards, and have competed internationally.

I’m very passionate about education, and have a real passion about the science behind nails. My knowledge of this, along with my creativity, and desire to tailor to individual needs, has earned me a loyal client base, providing beautiful nails that are natural and healthy, and that the client can easily maintain at home.

I adore making clients feel special, confident, and proud of their hands and nails. After all, we have to use and display them daily! Along with continued education, and keeping up with the latest innovations in the industry, I will always endeavour to be the best Nail Technician I can be.
