Our Short Guide To Curly Hair Salons In Rome

Rome has no shortage of fine options for all manners of textured hair — from wavy, to curly, to afro, and everything in between.

It’s been noted that 12.5% of the population across Europe has naturally curly hair — in Italy that number creeps up to around 17%, slightly above the continental average.

Any curl girl (or boy) knows that your curls are only ever at their best when they’ve been touched by an expert, and the average salon will not do. Luckily, Rome has no shortage of fine options for all manners of textured hair — from wavy, to curly, to afro, and everything in between — all of which can be found listed below (in no particular order):

Founded in 2015 in Milan, I Love Riccio is arguably one of the more famous curly-only salons in the country. Founder Fulvio Tirrico has over 20 years of international experience, he also perfected the X-CURL cut method used in the five salons across the country (including in Catania and Turin), and created an exclusive salon range of hair products that can be bought online and in-store.

Capariccia

The studio was born from a lifelong mission of the founder, Armando Pace (the self-titled Sarto dei Tagli per Capelli Ricci, or Tailor of Cuts for Curly Hair), to create a space that caters to giving curls the respect they deserve. Here, they do dry cuts, hair coloring with curly-friendly products, a very unique Water Curly Routine hydration method, as well as other beauty services (including manicures/pedicures, epilation, and massage).

Proudly declared as the first dedicated spa for curly hair, Friccico is famous for the pre-treatment moisturising therapies made from organic extracts (including linseed, wheat germ, oat, and acacia powder) that infuse hydration and love into dry, tired curls. Expect to also find color and cut services available at the salon, and if you sign up for their newsletter on their website you get a free guide in Italian for maintaining your curls.

The newest salon on the list — having only opened in late 2021 — Claudia and her team at Lady Rich stick to the industry standard dry cut method and a wash n’ go using products that are organic and made in Italy.
