Kevin Bodenham - Moyo Salon Owner

Kevin Bodenham
Salon Owner

In 1999 and after a successful 16 year career in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Salon owner Kevin Bodenham decided to realize 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 (

Donato Stano - Moyo's Creative Director

Donato Stano
Creative Director

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. He has been with us for over four years and was promoted to be the creative director in June 2021.

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.

Philip Akerlind
Senior Stylist

Philip has been with us for over four years! He has been a pleasure to spend time with, and every single one of his clients only have lovely things to say.

In addition to a natural talent for hairdressing Philip has trained with some of the best known Irish hairdressers and London with Aveda He is passionate about all things creative and is a genuinely happy and caring person. He is extremely popular with both staff and guests and his calm and unhurried consultations and services make guests feel (and he does!) like he really cares about them and their hair.

The following 5* review from a guest, Katie sums up what this lovely young man is all about – Kevin and Philip were both excellent! I’ve never felt so relaxed and welcome in a hairdressers. It was my first time in the salon and I’ll 100% be going back as there was a great dialogue and they both really listened to what I wanted for my hair. I had a cut and the damage repair treatment and my hair is like new and feels so healthy! 🙂

We are truly delighted to have Philip back as a valued member of the Moyo Team and we look forward to great things from this talented young man.

Greg Malinowski
Senior Stylist

Greg joined us in September 2021 as a senior stylist His journey to becoming the talented hairstylist that he is, is quite an interesting one. 10 years ago Greg quit art university and decided to become a hairdresser because he “wanted to learn how to make people happy with hairstyles”.  He started learning from being an assistant and helping with basic services, while also going through several years of hairdressing courses. After several years, Greg mastered the art of hairdressing and making clients feel amazing.
