Denis Perani managed to launch an impressive career over the last fifteen years. He made a name for himself as a hairdresser and stylist internationally and acts as a brand ambassador for serval companies within the hair and beauty scene. But there is one thing that never changed:
"Hair is my passion"
This motto sticks with the hairstylist since he first touched hair scissors.
But what a lot of people may not be aware of – Perani didn’t choose his job voluntarily in the beginning:
"I always wanted to become a hairdresser, but I never really had the guts to do so"
Unbeknownst to him, a friend set up an interview at a popular hair salon in Salzburg and just a few hours later Perani was accepted into an apprenticeship and the chance for an excellent education and his start as an international and award-winning hairstylist.
