Bruno Oaikhinan is the CIO (Chief Inspiration Officer) Bruno’s Place Unisex Salon. He is a banker turned hairstylist. He worked in the Financial Institution for over 12 years and the last place he worked was Skye Bank where he was the head, Internal Communications Unit. He has a B.Sc. in Economics and also a Certified Brand Strategist from Orange Academy affiliated with CoolBrands, Amsterdam.
Building a successful career in the fashion industry has always been something Bruno longed for even as a child. Growing up, he remembers using a blade comb on his hair and years later how happy he would be whenever he accompanied his wife to the salon. He would watch with keen interest how they make the hairs and take down areas of improvement.
His passion and dedication has seen him taking giant strides and breaking new grounds. He decided to take the risk when he realised that despite the country’s economic climate, people, women most especially would always be ready to spend so much on their hair.
Today, Bruno Oaikhinan has become a force to reckon with in the fashion industry.
