Massimiliano Luca Comella
Massimiliano’s passion for hairdressing began in traditional family run barber shop in the heart of Palermo, Sicily.
Massimiliano’s love for the industry took him to London in 2000 where he trained at the TONI&GUY Academy, further cementing his love of fashion, hair, innovation and creativity. The world of hairdressing also took Massimiliano to Dubai where he soon became a top hairstylist, boasting an impressive celebrity clientele including Gerard Butler, Tom Ford and Louis Vuitton.
From the age 17 Andrius was hugely inspired by the hairdressing industry and this passion took him to the UK where he became a barber at his local TONI&GUY Salon. Training twice a week, Andrius’ passion grew and he soon developed his skills enabling him to get his diploma from the Central London Academy. Two years later Andrius moved to Dubai and met Massimiliano who shared his love of the industry. After further expanding his expertise in Dubai, Andrius established his own salon back in London. It was not until a later trip to Dubai in 2015 where himself and Massimiliano came up with the idea of owning their own luxury grooming range, and so BIG BOY was born!
