Conveniently located opposite the Mentone Train Station and surrounded by beautiful, sandy beaches, Bayside’s best colourists and top stylists are ready to give you the most luscious locks. Of course, that’s not all we do – we’re also true poets for hair, creating stunning looks that express your inner beauty and effortless style.
The best piece of advice I’ve been given is to live in the moment. It gives me a sense of balance and peace. As a master colourist, certified educator, mentor, national award-winning hairdresser, and manager of rokk ebony Mentone – plus a mum of two energetic kids, I hold onto that mantra. Coffee and chocolate also help! If I had a superpower it would be to cure the sick and replace sadness with joy and positivity.
I believe that focus flows where energy goes and for the past 18 years, I’ve put my heart and soul into hair! I’ve worked for Australia and New Zealand Fashion Week and won numerous awards along the way. I’m always inspired to see the pure passion in up-and-coming hairdressers and I love sharing my experience with them. My fave holiday destination is Seseh, Bali for its beautiful beaches, friendly locals, temples and yoga retreats.
If I told you my superhero is Elsa from Frozen would you believe me? A mum of an energetic 3.5-year-old, I need to bring “the magic” and that applies to rokk ebony too. From a young age I knew my purpose was to be a hairdresser and make people feel good. A multi-award winner, FAME team member & creative leader, I’m grateful I get to do what I love. I believe that you are your only limit… so go for it!
With 11 years’ hairdressing experience across the UK and Australia, I would say I have many career highlights to be proud of: Finalist in TrendVision, HBIA and American Crew and working backstage at Melbourne Fashion Week. My clients inspire me all the time and I love meeting new people and making them feel amazing. Football is one of my other passions…. Soccer, that is! And I’m fortunate to coach two young teams of aspiring socceroos in my spare time.
“I love it!” Those three words spoken by clients along with a big smile give me the biggest burst of adrenaline and fuels my passion for what I do. As a qualified and experienced hairdresser, I’ve received several awards and participated in education and training programs. My two beautiful kids are my biggest inspiration. I watch them live life with innocence and without any worries and I try to live the way they think and feel.
With a Certificate III in Hairdressing, I’ve participated in Wella colour courses and advanced cutting courses and I love what I do. Seeing the happy faces of clients leaving our salon is super satisfying and rewarding. My fave holiday destination is New York because of its bright lights and shopping. My mum is my biggest inspiration; she’s hard working, patient and has helped me to be persistent and to believe in myself.
As a colourist, HBIA finalist, award-winning hairdresser and rokk ebony educator, the most inspiring part of my job is being able to ignite passion for colour in our young apprentices. I feel inspired by everyone I meet, and I believe that you should never give up on your goals because it’s so rewarding when you reach them. A massive fan of ‘staycations’ my place is my fave holiday destination and I love watching GOT.
The best advice I’ve been given is to “think big and be bold” and that’s the approach I bring to my work. With a Certificate III in Hairdressing, Diploma of Specialist Makeup, participation in Melbourne Fashion Week and other events, I love making people feel happy and confident about themselves.
I love advancing my technical skills and creativity, and since completing my Certificate III in Hairdressing, it’s been non-stop! I’ve won multiple awards in HBIA and Master Institute competitions, completed Kevin Murphy’s Session Stylist course and worked backstage at Melbourne Fashion Week! I love drawing inspiration from mood boards and turning these looks into exactly what my clients want. The most important thing I’ve learned is to treat people with respect and kindness; after all it doesn’t cost anything!
I love my career with rokk ebony and I’m so lucky to have such a supportive team of rokk stars around me. There’s no better feeling than taking care of my clients and making them look fabulous and sexy. It’s so rewarding knowing you did something to help turn someone’s day around. If I had a superpower, it would 100% be teleportation. Imagine being at home one minute and Hawaii the next. Aloha!
I’ve always believed life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. With a Certificate in Creative & Advanced Hairdressing, I’ve thrown myself in the deep end. I’ve participated in competitions, photoshoots and worked across magazines in the UK and Australia. But most of all, I’m passionate about lifting my clients’ moods by creating beautiful styles they just love.
Being part of the rokk ebony education team, mentoring and growing the next generation of hairdressers makes me so proud of what I do. From a Certificate III in Hairdressing to being an award-winning colourist. I believe that good days give you happiness, bad days give you experience and your worst days teach life lessons! My idea of a perfect day is any day with good food and good company!
I love bringing style and colour to my clients’ lives! I’m an all-rounder, qualified in make-up artistry and hairdressing. I feel honoured to have won first place for Style Irons at HBIA in my career so far. Balance is important, that’s why I love holidays to Barcelona, where I can bask in the food, architecture and sunshine. My biggest inspiration is Beyoncé for her strength, talent and for making lemonade out of life!
I’ve experienced amazing things working at rokk ebony. As well as learning from some of the most talented hairdressers in the industry, I’ve assisted with photo shoots for American Crew, Trendvision, HBIA and Headmasters competitions, and directed my own photoshoot for HBIA 2018! Take me to the Amalfi Coast in summer where the sun is perfect for tanning and the food is scrumptious and I’m super happy. My motto is simple: live, laugh and love life!
With a Certificate III in Hairdressing and winning multiple awards, the most inspiring part of my role is training the next generation of hairdressers. It’s lovely to share my passion with fresh faces who are so eager to learn. The best piece of advice I have been given is to celebrate your mistakes. After all, isn’t that how we all learn in the first place? My favourite holiday spot is NYC. I love the vibe and all the cool people you meet!
I was a salon owner in the 80s so you know I love big hair and bold styles! I love how happy a new hair style can make a client feel. I’m inspired by anyone with a strong work ethic. My current fave holiday place is Salina, Italy but I’d love to say “Aloha” under the tropical sun in Hawaii sometime soon. I believe if you love the life you live, you will live a life of love!
