The Team

Antonio De Rose

I am an independent experienced senior stylist and have been in the hair business for over 33 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!

Absolutely fantastic salon with a wonderful atmosphere which makes you feel very comfortable as a customer. Antonio is a legend, providing great company, very friendly and funny and is just genuinely a lovely man. Brilliant haircuts every visit, getting exactly what I want and I always come out feeling better than ever. I look forward to every appointment and can't wait to return very soon. Would highly recommend!

It is now my favourite hairsalon. Antonio is great and always knows what hairstyle better suits you. Barbara made a perm for me last year - I had the most amazing curls which lasted more than I thought! Highly recommend 🙂

I have been having my hair cut and coloured by Antonio for 12 + years and I have looked for places nearer to where I live now but keep coming back! Friendly, professional and brilliant hair! Highly highly recommend.

A gem in Battersea Square! This is such a find! Barbara has done my hair now 3 or 4 times, highlights and colour, blowdries and cuts have all been perfect! She does the best blow dry in town and the colour is the best I've had in years. Also not those crazy London prices either....oh yes and being Italians the coffee is also the best!
