Ele Antonacci

Born and raised in the South of  Brazil  to Brazilian/Italian  german gran-parents, our master colourist Ele grew up in a truly multicultural environment.


Her passion for hairdressing began 25 years ago when she was invited by her uncle to help him at his salon in Sao Paulo.. She then, decided to qualified as hairdresser at the most competitive hairdressing college in Brasil SENAC. Through her training she perfected every technique of hair styling and colouring, which has always helped her develop a loyal clientele.

At the age of only 24 Ele opened her first salon in Brazil.  After ten years of success she wanted a new challenge. 

Hungry to expand her experience and express more of her creativity she moved to London in early 2009.  Ele trained at Vidal Sassoon Academy, Wella and L'Oreal training centers to refine her skills and worked at some of London's top hair salons.


In 2016 Ele moved to Manchester and started Antonacci Hair Salon. 


On 2019 Antonacci Salon won the prestigious National Hair & Beauty Fedration Awards -  UK' Best Independent Hair Salon.


Being a self confessed perfectionist Ele has always strived to go once step further and is continually inspired to reinvent herself in order to create something new.

Her attention to detail is exceptional and together with her technical excellence ensures her clients not only look but feel amazing.

‘Every client is unique. Which is why I start every treatment with an in depth and detailed consultation. This enables me to understand what my client really wants. I can then advise on important issues like skin tone, face shape, image & lifestyle. I believe in listening first, then using my expertise to create an individual style that will transform my client's look to make them feel like the best version of themselves.’
