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.

First time in HairHub and went home very happy. Haven’t coloured my hair in 7 years and went to them and explained them that I just wanted a subtle highlight just an update to my boring and lifeless hair. They were spot on with the results. Ruzhi did an amazing job with colouring with the help of Paul‘s advice, and Maddie cut my hair beautifully. Can’t be any more satisfied. I will definitely come back. Thanks guys!

Always a fantastic experience when I visit HairHub salon.
Highly recommend this incredible team of professional, knowledgeable and very talented colourists, stylists, cutters and assistants for all your hair needs.
Their knowledge of hair care and styles that suit you is exceptional and they really take care of you and your hair.
I’ve been coming to HairHub for the last few years and my hair has never looked healthier and compliments are always flowing. Paul who does my hair is amazing and extremely experienced. He understands hair and always takes the time to teach you about hair care and maintenance so you can continue having healthy hair even after you walk out of the salon. He listens carefully to what you want and works with you to get the best possible result for you and your hair.
Everyone is friendly and always provide a great atmosphere and customer service.

Paul has been doing my hair since 2013 shortly after moving from QLD. I searched high and low for a good hair dresser, so it was only natural I followed him to Camberwell from the city store. Every time I see Paul, I leave the store feeling amazing. No matter the mood or stage in your life Paul can create a style that makes you look and feel fresh and classy. He takes so much care to listen and make a difference. I’ve never been disappointed with a visit in 8 years and I look forward to each and every visit. Paul’s work unknowingly unlocks that special feeling and gives me a renewed sense of ME! Best feeling ever!!

Fronted up with several photos of what I wanted as I needed a change. Paul was great. Sat with me and explained what would be good and if it would be doable. Every step was explained. I felt really comfortable moving ahead. End result was just as I imagined it. Paul also showed me how to get the same result at home in easy to follow steps. I was also treated to a great shampoo/wash and a relaxing head massage that just made my stress melt away. 10/10 for the cut and 10/10 for shampoo/massage.

I seem to regularly get random compliments from strangers about my hair. This didn’t happen until Paul started doing my colour!!! I’ve been going to Falcone for over twenty years and find the whole experience to be super professional and the staff friendly. Paul knows what I want and doesn’t try to deviate from that, although he will tweak things as he sees fit and I trust him in that regard. For me it is easy. I go in and say ‘the usual’ and the results are always amazing. Plus he is a lovely guy, so that helps!!

Paul has been cutting my hair for years & I have always been impressed with his attention to detail, never rushing, and a great result after the crucial post-cut first home wash!
Like the rest of the team, he always greets and treats me like an old friend – however busy the salon is.

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 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.
