When anyone talks about hairdressing in the North-West there is always one name that automatically springs to mind, that of ‘Pello Hairdressing’: Pello last weekend celebrated ten years in business in Letterkenny and the official opening of their new premises at Letterkenny Shoppng Centre having spent ten years at the Mountain Top. From its inception, the business has flourished and today holds the distinction of being the only salon in Donegal to stock the world renowned ‘Aveda products’.
Established by Patrick Gray and his wife Tina, the name ‘Pello’ has become a household one and their mission has always been to care for their clients by using the senses of smell and touch to create an environment of wellness.
Together with a first class team they have taken the art of hairdressing to a very different level. The Pello Pinktober Event in the Letterkenny Shopping Centre.

Having worked in Glasgow, Donegal, London, New York and Spain it is little wonder that clients travel from all over the county and indeed much further afield to avail of the attention to detail and professionalism that makes ‘Pello’ exceptional in every way. It has always been the belief of Patrick and Tina that everyone and indeed the planet we live in is treated with care and respect and this is very much evident in their salon. The eco friendly and organic theme is there in abundance throughout the salon from the bespoke furniture to the water system and the lighting with its calming natural glow. Their belief in inspiring and educating their co-workers to integrate wellness and beauty in their lives has culminated in a fantastic and professional team who believe true leadership is delivered with passion and by example.

His wealth of knowledge in the business that he had gained from working in different countries in the world left him in no doubt that Aveda Hair Colour was the best naturally derived products on the market. His research into the product saw him contact the Aveda team in London who visited his salon in Letterkenny. What the found left them in no doubt whatsoever that ‘Pello’ would become one of their exclusive salons in the country to stock and use their products. What Pello offers On arriving at the salon you are treated to relax with complimentary Sensory Rituals which include Comforting Tea Ritual: Stress-Relieving Hand Ritual: Stress- Relieving Neck and Indian head massage: Aroma sensory journey: Haircare consultation : skincare consultation and Pello’s Finishing Touch Make-up.

Photo Clive Wasson Walk in – No appointment necessary After having signed the contract to move to Unit 17 Letterkenny Shopping Centre , Patrick and Tina looked at the Centre in great detail and came to the conclusion that people come in get what the require and leave. The idea of providing something different for that customer in a ‘’no appointment’’ necessary environment was very much an option but the logistics of providing that service was somewhat of a concern. However, never allowing any obstacles to get in the way of progress, they found a way to overcome that and it has proved a real winner with customers. Monday opening is another win-win for guests who are interested in visiting this Aveda Exclusive Salon.

Looking to the Future with confidence Pello is an oasis of calm within the Shopping Centre while at the same time connecting cutting age design and creativity with the environment though the Aveda range of products. It really is ‘’Hair design with a conscience’’. Patrick, Tina and the team are looking to the future with great optimism and on this their 10th. anniversary and official opening at Letterkenny Shopping Centre they take this opportunity to thank their customers old and new for their tremendous support down the years.
