1979, saw two brothers (Antonio & Pietro) from Naples, Italy, set up what is known today, Hairavanti - unisex hair & beauty salon; a well established salon in keighley.
The name 'Hairavanti' was created by one of their very own clients. 'Avanti' meaning ' forward' in Italian, translates the name of the salon as 'Hair forward'.
The pair championed new hair styles and won several competitions for their talent throughout the years and became pioneers in the hair industry. In their young entrepreneurial days they opened Hairavanti salons in Bingley and Frizinghall but two decades later reduced the number of salons to the original one, Hairavanti Keighley. In 2005, the Risidi Brothers gave their salon a complete makeover and expanded Hairavanti into 2 buildings, providing a modern atmosphere for their clients.
Pietro has now retired from hairdressing , while Antonio (affectionately known as Nino) continues his hard work with the help of his daughter.
Stefania and Antonio, with the help of their talented team, create the Hairavanti in which you see today.
