Victor Picardo Hairstyling Group, the largest hairdressing chain in the Algarve, was due to open its first salon in Lisbon on December 7.
After 18 years in the Algarve, the brand is expanding to the capital and will also be transferring the Victor Picardo training academy to Lisbon.
A spokesman for Victor Picardo said: “The hairdressing academy has until now been based in the Algarve which made it less accessible to professionals from around the country. Now centred in Lisbon, training will be easily available to those from the north and centre of the country also.
”He added: “Our expectations for 2011 are very big with new salons, courses, collections, events and partnerships marking the New Year.”
The Lisbon salon is the 10th in the hairdressing chain with salons already established across the Algarve including in Faro, Carvoeiro, Lagos and Vale do Lobo.
