The meaning behind Piccola

The name Piccola comes from the Italian language meaning mini or small in size.  When the salon first formed we started in the smallest room available in the building.  Today Piccola occupies multiple different rooms.  Our current space is about 5 times bigger than what we started in.  Even though we have grown out of our "mini" room the name still sticks.

Piccola Salon hit 5 years old in February 2018.  We would never be here without our AMAZING clients.  Many thanks to you all!!
