Kevin Bodenham – Salon Director
In 1999 and after a successful 16 year career in Logistics and Supply Chain Management Salon owner Kevin Bodenham decided to realise a lifelong ambition and switch to a career in Hair and Beauty. Two years of intensive technical training at a school of cosmetology in South Africa followed with a well rounded and practical but equally intensive training by Aveda,Vidal Sassoon and Toni and Guy, in Cape Town, Berlin, New York, London and Dublin.
In 2003 Kevin relocated to Dublin after spending a weekend in the city and started working at Whetstone, Aveda Concept Salon in Parliament Street, Temple Bar where he spent five very happy years.
In October 2008 Kevin opened his own Aveda Exclusive Salon, Moyo, in Charlotte Way, Dublin 2 which has gone from strength to strength.Kevin has a keen interest and belief in holistic health hence his affiliation with the Aveda brand (www.aveda.co.uk)
Aleem Mukhchi – Senior Stylist
In September 2014 our amazing young Senior Stylist, Aleem joined the Moyo family and soon established himself as a most valued and vital part of the team.
Aleem is a most dedicated hairdressing professional, with an eye for detail and a creative flair and style that belies his tender age.
Blessed with extremely good hairdressing taste Aleem is possessed of a quiet and confident disposition and he is dedicated to providing the best possible cut and colour experience for each and every guest. This attention to service excellence has resulted in him being one of the most sought after members of the Moyo team.
A keen interest in the bio-mechanics of hair, coupled with his continuous thirst for knowledge and training, means that Aleem is uniquely positioned to advise guests on all aspects of hair care and hair health thereby providing a truly holistic hairdressing service.
We are delighted that Aleem has chosen Moyo and we look forward to many years of happy hairdressing together .
Matty Backus – Senior Stylist
After a 7 year stretch as a stock trader, Matty will be the only person to have cut hair on the floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange.
He transitioned from his former career when he became an apprentice at a “Top 100 Chicago” Salon, serving 2 years as a colour and chemical apprentice. Great circumstances brought him back to his parents home in the suburbs where he worked as the colourist to a well-known celebrity stylist, who agreed to become a mentor in hair cutting. Matty was then further mentored by a former educator from Vidal Sassoon Chicago, and here he rounded off his initial 5 years of work and education in hair. Later, he would take on the responsibilities of Salon Manager and became a sought-after Senior Stylist.
In more recent years, Matty continued to hone his capabilities with continuing education. He has been a colour educator for two well-known lines and has had the pleasure of sharing his knowledge with others.
In 2016, Matty & his wife Stephanie chose to devise a plan of relocation to Dublin...and in January of 2017, they made the leap! Shortly after his arrival, Matty worked as a Senior Stylist at a reputable Dublin salon before accepting an offer to join the team at MOYO!
We are delighted to have this brilliant stylist join our team and we look forward to a long and mutually rewarding association.

Donato Stano – STYLIST
If art had a name it would be called Donato.
This multi-talented all rounder has creative artistry dripping from his very fingertips.
Although only 25 years old Donato already has a wealth of experience under his belt. After a solid and classical technical education Donato worked in various high-end Aveda salons in Rome where he impressed with his natural talent and sparkling personality.
A versatile stylist and colourist who is a much sought after balayage expert, Donato beat 300 other competitors to win a prestigious trophy for Editorial Styling in Bologna (see WHATS HOT section for more), his innovative creation was featured on the cover of ESTETICA Italy magazine the same year. In November 2017 Donato was invited to open the L’Oréal show at PalaLottomatica in Rome with a recreation of his winning design and where his work was very well received.
In September 2017 this talented artist moved to Dublin where Moyo was fortunate enough to engage him to complete our own talented team.
With his warm and engaging personality Donato has very quickly become a firm favourite with both staff and clients and is one of the most sought after members of the Moyo Team.
We are delighted to have Donato as part of the Moyo family and we hope to have the benefit of his talents for many years to come.
