A journey that started on a rough sea was the beginning for the Petruccelli family. Those turbulent waters would reflect the environment for many years. The Petruccelli Group put down its roots in the 1950’s as hairstying and fashion became more demanding. The hairstylist had greater needs, and the Petruccelli family was among those stylists. Hairdressing gave enjoyment, work and life to the Petruccelli Group. After opening a number of salons, an idea began to grow. This idea was to work together to build a business that would bring more practical and innovative styles to the industry.
