Located in the central suburb of Epsom at 144 Great South Road, Saba Salon is based on the ground floor of a late 1800s two-storey character villa. Once inside, the street noise fades away, and you’re greeted by welcoming staff, a calm atmosphere and a nice interior. In addition, the salon opens up to a lush garden courtyard with an abundance of natural light giving a wonderful outdoor perspective to help you relax.
Unusually for this industry, Brandon graduated with a degree in industrial engineering and had a career as a business analyst before he decided to explore his creative side and become a stylist. This balance of analysis and creativity means he has developed a unique problem-solving approach to hairdressing that allows him to design and style his clients’ hair to perfection. After working at one of Auckland’s top salons for almost 12 years, Brandon opened Saba Salon to bring the hairdressing experience back to being more about the customer, as opposed to the creative and artistic motivations of the industry. When not creating perfect hair, he can be found immersing himself in nature via his surfboard and motorcycle. He also has a penchant for making terrible dad jokes.
Jess is one of the brightest talents in the hair and fashion industry and has already built up an impressive portfolio of editorial work. Her work has featured in photo shoots online and in magazines such as Black, Remix, Fashion Journal and Italian Vogue. Her vision for on-trend fashion, ability to create seamless and beautiful colour work, as well as her unassuming and friendly nature means she has a bright future. In her spare time Jess can be found hanging with her Bijon-Shitzu Ollie and cutting shapes on the D-floor to electronic dance music.
Originally hailing out of Masterton, Conor is the epitome of everything that is positive about growing up in a small town. Intelligent, creative, passionate and with a good eye for fashion, he has all the traits that make an amazing hairdresser. It also helps that he is one of the nicest and most accommodating people you will meet. When not applying himself 110% at work he can be found doing hair on photo shoots, being an all-round social butterfly, and grooving (often by himself) to the latest pop song.
