During 2004-2013 I set-up and co-owned my former salon Escape Hair Sanctuary Ltd, whilst achieving NVQ Levels 2 and 3 in Hairdressing. Following this venture I moved on to working with KeraStraight demonstrating and training Stylists in London and Essex.
In 2014 I brought my new experiences and new talents back to my roots in Witham and welcomed all guests to my new eco-salon, Cabello Hair and Beauty (UK) Ltd. I am even lucky enough to bring 4 of my former Stylists along with me for the ride; Gemma, Sam, Jessica, Laura and our Assistant Emma.
Since opening, we have been improving the salon, adding new services, topping up our education and getting involved in some great community projects. I look forward to pushing forward with some fabulous new ideas for the future and can’t wait to show you. In the meantime, I would love to hear your feedback, to make sure we are delivering superior service, so please feel free to e-mail, Facebook message or tweet me at any time. You can even pop by for a chat or book in for a hair-cut/colour or KeraStraight treatment with me.
Gemma, PRINCIPAL Designer,

Gemma has been hairdressing for 11 years and has achieved NVQ Levels 1, 2 and 3. She has completed several courses; Hair-up with Patrick Cameron plus Redken Colour and AVEDA colour. She also took a leading role in the Paul Mitchell Colour Challenge.
Since opening in 2014, Gemma has been Cabello’s lead Colourist and has been focussing her talents on new colour techniques Ombré and Balayage. Gemma also has a great passion for micro and nano-ring hair extensions, and can transform any hair from a few partial extensions around the face to change your look – or a full head of long locks for a dramatic transformation – without the wait!
Gemma’s Occaison Hair talents are 2nd to none, as she is one of our experts in bridal hair too… and if that’s not enough she is also proficient in Shellac nails for hands or feet!
….so if you’re looking for a great up-do for a night out, some lengthy long locks, Shellac paint, hair colour change, style change or even just a trim, Gemma is the Stylist for you.

In 2005, she moved on to a Senior Stylist position with Kat at Escape Hair Sanctuary, as her lead Stylist and Educator where she remained for 8 years. – We thought it was about time she re-joined her team mates Kat, Gemma, Laura, Jessica and Emma.
Sam has attended many colour and advanced cutting courses, including L’Oréal Colour Keys, Redken Styling and Balayage July 2018 at AVEDA. In 2008 Sam passed her Assessors Award and spent many years training Stylists, and will continue to do so at Cabello – Sam will be hot on the tails of our New Talent and our Assistants to ensure they are trained to our extremely high standard of hairdressing and will be assessing and signing off their final cuts and colour services.
