Rossano Ferretti Celebrity Hair stylist of the month.

Monte Carlo’s Resident Celebrity Stylist -  Silvia Lanari

Silvia, you are incredibly well known in Italy as one of the most talented sought after hairdressers and I know you have looked after the hair for many top celebrities and famous people there. Now you have moved to this superb new salon in the Hotel de Paris in Monaco and are looking after a new range of clients and celebrities. If you don’t mind, I’m sure our readers would love to know a little more about you.

When did you first discover your passion for hair?

Actually it was when I was a little girl and I used to play with my Barbie dolls! I always loved to make different hairstyles and try to re-create what I saw in magazines and on television and then when I went for my first haircut I fell in love with the idea of being a hairdresser.

What inspires you and why?

I am inspired by everything I see around me, in magazines and social media and daily life and especially by my wonderful clients! I love to find and create something beautiful and special out of the ordinary and usual.

What has been your favourite time working with Rossano Ferretti?

I have worked with Rossano Ferretti for 11 years and until recently was working in our world famous Parma salon where I have had so many amazing experiences but recently I think it was travelling to Abu Dhabi to look after the hair of some of the royal family and now starting to work in Monte Carlo, which is an amazing adventure.

Which are your favourite restaurants?

My favourite restaurant in Parma is ‘I due Platani’ and here in Monaco is ‘Maya Bay’ which serves great Thai and Japanese fusion food.

What is your favourite product from the Rossano Ferretti Parma line?

Actually I have so many but the two I use the most are ‘Intenso Serum’ because of the amazing results I achieve with it but also, selfishly, because it has an amazing hand feel and smells gorgeous! And the ‘Prodigio’ range again they feel and smell amazing but the results I get with these products are far superior than any other products I have worked with in my career.

What is your favourite holiday destination?

I love Formentera and of course the Maldives. Rossano has an amazing salon in the Maldives so perhaps I will get a chance to take a working holiday there one day!!

If you were stranded on a desert island what are the three things you would take with you?

Mmm Well it would have to be my hair dryer and diffuser (I just hope there is electricity! Ha ha) and of course my Parfum and a Camera, so I can keep a record of my adventures.

I know you have looked after many famous celebrities and I also understand for their privacy you never discuss your clients but if you could pick someone famous to work with, who’s hair you haven’t styled, who would it be?

I love the hair of Penelope Cruz, Julia Roberts, Kate Blanchett and Natalie Portman and I am sure I could do something amazing with their hair but I think if I have to choose one it would be Bradley Cooper but not necessarily because of his hair!

Thank you Silvia so much for your time.

Silvia is in high demand by her clientele but if you would like a consultation with her, in the new Rossano Ferretti Salon in the beautiful Hotel de Paris in Montecarlo then why not make an appointment.
