Meet the Team

Hi, I'm Gennaro and I am the owner and senior stylist at A Touch of Class.

I've been here in Bridge Street, Leighton Buzzard now for over 14 years.

I did my training here in the UK and partly in Italy.

This has helped me combine design, style, and elegance, typically associated with all things Italian, and precision, technique and accuracy, typically associated with all things British. The best of both worlds!

I love my profession and always do the best I can to provide my customers with the best quality service and care. One of the things I love the most about my work is the fantastic people I get to meet.

I look forward to welcoming you into the salon to have a chat about your hair and creating the right look for you.

Allow me to add that ‘touch of class’ to your hair.


Hi, I'm Sam. I'm a stylist here at A Touch of Class and I've been hairdressing now for 8 years. I trained at Barnfield College and I have worked alongside Gennaro and the team for 5 years.

In my time working at the salon I have met a lovely and welcoming group of people from staff to clients. The salon is a very warm and welcoming environment and we are happy to offer a wide range of services.

Through working at the salon I have learnt more and more, from cutting old and new styles to colour techniques, ranging from conventional to organic colouring. I have also taken part in colour and hair-up courses, ideal for bridal and prom hair styles.

I'm a full time stylist and I'm always delighted to welcome old and new clients to the salon and to help you feel good about yourself.

Thank you to all my personal clients for their positive feedback.


I have been working in hair salons since I was 15 years old and have been with Gennaro for the past three years.

Having completed my training at Milton Keynes College I am fully qualified and am experienced and able to carry out all aspects of hairdressing for both men and women.

I love working at A Touch of Class where the atmosphere made by the team and the clients is one that is always upbeat and friendly but at the same time, professional.

Please pop-in to see us here; I'm sure you will be delighted with what you will find.


I've loved hairdressing since I started at school and I'm passionate about pursuing it as a career.

One of the reasons I most love hairdressing is how you can completely change someone's appearance and boost their self-confidence. I love the feeling you get when you can tell people love their new hairstyle. Meeting new people and getting to know them is a very enjoyable part of this job.

A Touch of Class has such a friendly atmosphere, and the number of regular clients proves this is a great salon with talented hairdressers. I am looking forward to furthering my career here, and becoming an amazing hairdresser.
