If you could tell your younger self what your future entails, would you believe it?
This sentiment runs true for friends and owners of Hair Body & Soul Leah Portelli, Michelle McCubbin and Pina Khalaf after celebrating 22 years in business.
The dedicated and glamourous ladies have created a salon where beauty has no expiration date.
Starting in the late 90s, the Camberwell salon has grown to employ over 15 hair technicians, make-up artists and massage therapists along with a thriving online store.
A secret to the salon’s success is its ability to retain and develop staff.
Flexible working hours, family-friendly approach to management and a great work culture means the trio have built a passionate and loyal team, which is a struggle in an industry where recruitment and retention are challenging.
Positivity breeds positivity, and Hair Body & Soul is a beacon for it. Its staff are happy and invested in the business, and it shows.
Leah, Michelle and Pina believe in ongoing education, high-quality products and genuine service where each client is treated as an individual. Their passion for the industry shines bright and each woman brings their unique skills to the table.
Leah has established a band of loyal followers who continue to return to the salon for her perfect cuts and colours. Her speciality is transforming customers with a striking new look.
Michelle continually pushes the salon forward as a powerful business engine. She has an infectious laugh and is passionate about the industry. This shows through her constant support of her clients and team.
Pina is the queen of dry cutting and in-house team training. She will always deliver an X-factor cut with a healthy dose of great humour.
Together they have a genuine love for what they do and that is ALWAYS good for the body and soul.
