Carlo Cardinale

Salon Owner / Director

Director, leader and mentor Carlo is involved in all aspects of the salon life from creating beautiful hair to creating amazing coffee’s – seriously we’re not joking! Being Italian Carlo knows the difference between a good coffee and a great one!

Carlo is renowned for his highly skilled hair cutting skills, fantastic barbering artistry and keen eye for colouring – just to mention a few.

He can often be found globe trotting for Paul Mitchell educating other hair stylists around the world and bringing these skills back to the team here at Outcast hair.

Carlo’s ability to transform the way you look and feel , whether it be with a new style or a new colour is in our opinion well worth a visit whether you are a new guest or an existing guest to us.


When I was younger I actually trained to be a chef but it never felt exactly where I wanted to be and then one day hairdressing found me and I knew instantly that this is where I was supposed to be and what I would do.

I’m exceptionally passionate about what we do here at Outcast hair and I look forward to welcoming you to our salon. I’m so confident in our teams ability to deliver above and beyond that we offer complimentary consultations for all guests.

I’m constantly striving for excellence within the team and for our salon guests.

I believe in education and am constantly educating our team to take them to the next level.

Booking your hair with Carlo.

As you can well imagine Carlo is one of our most requested team members and therefore we can only recommend booking in advance.

Carlo is normally available Tuesday – Saturday in salon however please contact Beth for bookings as she will have his diary in her sights.

Victoria Panting – salon manager

Salon Manager

Meet Vicky – our salon manager.

Vicky joined Outcast in January 2004 and has worked her way steadily to the role of salon manager. Vicky manages the salon floor along side salon owner Carlo and looks after much of the teams education and development.

She also has an active role in education with Paul Mitchell alongside Carlo and gets to travel to some pretty amazing places with them sharing her love, passion and experience for the industry. All of which she aims to bring back and share with the team.

I’ve always loved the fashion industry and am constantly inspired by whats around me.

I genuinely love being busy on the salon floor and see it as a real honour when a guest decides to choose me as their hair stylist. I take my job very seriously and aim to give every guest 110% of my knowledge and experience so they get the best they possibly can from me.

I really enjoy being actively involved in the training and development of our team. Watching our team grow and become busy designers makes me super happy knowing I had a hand in it – although I can’t take all the credit for it as we have such a fab team who work so hard.

Being part of the Paul Mitchell education team gives me lots of confidence and new skills that I feel blessed to be able to share with you as my guest.

I look forward to seeing you soon.
