Making someone feel amazing is what puts a smile on my face each and every time.

My Experience
  • I have a Certificate IV in Hairdressing and for 5 years I was a Redken Performing Artist (RPA) for the Redken Australian Artistic team, educating others in cutting and creative colour workshops nationally.
  • My expertise includes on-trend cuts, colouring, and styling.
  • I’ve won awards and been selected to cut, style, and art direct numerous shoots, backstage work, fashion shows, Fashion Weeks, etc.; however, what I love most is spending one-on-one time and building a bond with my guests and seeing the satisfaction they get from a salon visit. Making someone feel amazing is what puts a smile on my face each and every time.
My Passions
  • I love cutting and colour work, whether it be commercial or creative, and overseeing the daily running and management of the salon and being part of a fun, thriving team.
  • I enjoy a balance of both quiet time (in my own company), spending time with friends and family, health and fitness, and going on adventures. I love the beach and nature, travelling, travel photography, food, sights and culture, and of late, exploring my cooking and gardening skills (Iso life, LOL).
  • My favourite thing to do is staying in a boutique hotel, watching a magical sunset with a cocktail in hand whilst listening to great tunes and just watching the world go by. It really is just the best.

Paul and Gino (and the team at Hairhub) have looked after my hair for over 25 years. My kids as husband now come to HairHub. We couldn’t be happier or better looked after. They listen to our requests, are highly skilled and always a pleasure to talk with whilst they cut and style our hair.

I’m always reluctant to go to a hair salon because of my thin curly hair. Paul was so knowledgeable and showed me how to maintain and style my natural curls . I loved it! Thank you for the pleasant experience.

I have been going to the same hairdresser for 29 years and very happy, however, I moved to Hawthorn and needed a hairdresser. I was absolutely thrilled by everything Paul did; he coloured and cut my hair and talked me through everything. My hair looks and feels beautiful. Thank you Paul. I could not recommend any higher, he is brilliant.

I love how Paul cuts my hair! I’ve got thin straight hair but I don’t want blunt cuts that are often the choice for that kind of hair. Paul finely cuts and adds texture so it doesn’t look so flat.

A last minute cancellation meant an appointment became available for a wash and blow dry. The team were excellent and Paul provided a professional and friendly service. It made my day. I’ll definitely be booking again.

Thanks so much Paul.
I asked for cut and colour, and Paul consulted with me and was very thorough in what he was going to do.
I walked in after 4 months and walked out a new person.

I (and my many hairdressers) have always struggled to achieve fuss free, practical and professional haircut with my very thick and curly hair until my first session with HairHub! In 4+ years I have never looked back and no matter the length both the cut and colour are perfect. Soo grateful to have found this salon.

Always great! Paul has been styling my hair for about 8 years now and he has seen my hair though many changes (pregnancy, hair loss, greying…) and he has always adapted beautifully to my changing hair needs. The staff are all very friendly too, it’s a pleasure to visit the salon.

I enjoy getting my hair done at HairHub, it’s a lovely salon and everyone there is friendly and talented and really make you feel welcome. I get my hair done by Paul. If anybody knows hair, it’s Paul. He listens to what you want but gives good recommendations about what suits you best and the long term health of your hair. I highly recommend this salon as you’ll always walk away very pleased with the results. Thanks HH salon xo

As per usual, I was spoilt rotten by the members of the Camberwell salon. I love going there for a hair cut or a colour. They are just so professional and that makes it so special and relaxing.

Paul cuts and colours my hair now. He is friendly and very experienced at what he does. I always come away feeling a million dollars! I also have had my hair styled by Gino, Tina and Maria over the 15 years that I have been going there. I would recommend them to anyone who wants professional service!

After having my amazing hair cut with Gino I decided to complete the package and colour my hair with Paul.
Paul was brilliant. He discussed everything with me and totally understood the type of colour/coverage I was after.
This is THE BEST colour I have ever had and I’m really happy.
Falcone has the best team in every area of hairdressing.
Happy Chappy.

The HairHub Team have been cutting and styling my hair for close to 2 years now and their professionalism, skill, friendliness and care surpasses any salon I have ever attended. I always leave my weekly blow wave and regular cut and foils feeling great and frequently get compliments on my hair. Thank you to Paul, Kim, Mary and Ruzhi all of whom have styled my hair over my time as a HairHub customer and Yuka who has done a wonderful job with my son’s hair. To top off the experience, your hair washing stations are the best, most comfortable in the business. Missed you all through lockdown and so happy to be back. You have me as a loyal customer for good!
