Passion of Hair

I feel that being a hairdresser is akin to being born into a circus family from the view point that once Hairdressing is in your blood it is with you for life.

Those who become successful in this great industry are those who have a true passion for making others look and feel better about themselves. We may not always stay working in a salon as a hairdresser, there are a great deal of opportunities with theatre, film and TV, product companies, as educators and when travelling overseas the skills of Australian hairdressers are widely sort.
