About Frank Basile
On the 19th January 2014 Frank Basile celebrated 38 years in the hair industry!
In 1976 Frank began his apprenticeship as a barber in a small shop in Floreat Forum known as "Eric and Luigi's Barber Shop".
1985 was a huge year for Frank when he married Rose who not only became his wife but also long term partner. Together they bought their first home and took over the barbershop that Frank had grown to love and so started Frank Basile Hair Stylist.
The year 2001 was the beginning of a new era for Frank and Rose as Floreat Forum was undergoing major renovations and they made a bold decision that would rock their whole world.
Frank Basile Hair Stylist moved out of the Forum to Birkdale Street, Floreat and Frank's first unisex salon was launched and so began "Frank Basile For Hair".
Frank's Floreat salon (Head Office) is very unique, as barbering is where Frank began and is his forte so the salon has a Men's Barber section with 4 full time male barbers.
Frank's boys have an abundance of experience and can cater from a child's first cut to the elderly gentleman. They are constantly kept up to date with all the latest styles and products and can recommend any treatments, colours and products you may require.
On the other side of the salon there is our unisex team led by multi award winning stylist Matt Basile.
The Floreat salon are known as 'the wild ones' because they are loud and love to break the rules but are also an incredible, talented team who can work with anything from problem hair to creating an amazing new look for you.
In 2006 Frank and Rose purchased their Kingsley salon, led by multi award winning Sabina and her partner in crime Samantha.
The Kingsley multi award winning team are known as 'the dream team' because they make the impossible happen!
In 2008 Frank and Rose purchased the Applecross salon led by multi award winning Deborah and her amazing team who complete the Frank Basile family.
The Frank Basile team are always kept in touch with the latest colour training and recently extended their Balayage knowledge with new techniques, also advanced cutting trading classes and ball / bridal hair classes. Frank Basile also have our own Japanese hair straightening specialist multi award winner Tony Basile who retrains every year to keep up to date with the latest products and technique.
