Metamorphosis – Independent salon established in 1992
Metamorphosis is an independent salon located at the very centre of Battersea Square.
The community around the square is fantastic and is a very popular place to eat, drink or meet friends, with a variety of bars and restaurants just next door. The whole square has a very friendly atmosphere, just as you’d expect in South London!
Temporary Lockdown Closure
Due to the lock down, we will be closed from 20th December for two weeks and until further notice on our website.
Please contact Antonio directly on: 07868 729371 with your queries.

I am an independent experienced senior stylist and have been in the hair business for over 35 years. I started hairdressing after spending several years studying medicine at Università di Roma (Rome University in Italy), where I am from. As much as I loved science and medicine, I decided to learn hairdressing and styling skills to become independent from my family, initially just as a hobby, but soon found myself fully qualified and learning at the very best hair salon in Rome. I was working with Sargassi Hairdressing Group and Mino Moretti Hair Salon in the heart of Rome, and it was there where I met the legendary Franco Scarpa, Artistic Director of Vidal Sassoon 1975/76.
In 1984, Franco suggested that I come to London - the fashion capital of the hair industry - to attend a Sassoon training course, and soon I decided London was my home! Today, London is still the capital of the hair trends and fashion world, and long may it continue. From 1986 to 1992, I worked for Cristopha, Crimpers and Alan International, but in 1992 decided to go solo, opening Metamorphosis in Battersea Square.
I love shaping hair, especially restyling, and complementing hairstyles with colour to emphasise the shapes and layers. I find the most excitement in bringing out of each client what I call the hidden look... the look just perfect for that particular client, the looks that distinguishes you from a crowd!
Even now, I am constantly learning and updating my techniques, and am still very much in love with my job!
