Our clients love our approach to hair. You will too.

I would just like to say a big thank you to Paul and the team at Manipulate Hair Studio! I got a cut yesterday and the experience was absolutely wonderful. Going to a new hair salon for the first time can be daunting, but Paul made me feel so comfortable and did an absolutely fabulous job with my hair. Thanks so much!

Paul is known for his technical approach to cutting and his precision cuts, while Giovanna’s signature light-handed technique and her intimate knowledge of colour are trademarks of the salon.

Over the past 25 years I've trained and worked with some of the most talented hairdressers in the world gaining experience from hair shows, fashion and editorial work. But what’s most satisfying for me is cutting and styling the hair of everyday people. I'm known for my precision cutting skills on all types of hair. I love hairdressing because it’s a dynamic and evolving industry and I love my relationship with my clients.




I learned my craft working in my family’s salons and at the award-winning Fasson Hair as well as gaining creative experience in editorial, film, and TV. Years of working with colour means I can take women on a journey to really embrace a colour that will work for them. I love fashion, the arts and music, but my passion is making people beautiful. I want women to love how they look and feel and if I have something to do with that, it’s the greatest reward I can ask for.
