Hair Artist Team
My passion is creating new designs on hair, it’s an amazing feeling knowing I’ve helped my clients achieve their hair goals. I am completely fascinated with colour and cutting, I go to work everyday excited as I know everyday is different in the fashion industry. I have been a hair artist for over 15 years now, and worked in Sydney salons, but I love the beachside work life balance I can achieve working with Fresh Salon.
I have been hairdressing for over 10 years. My specialty is blondes and I love a great finishing blowdry. I have spent alot of my time in city salons, but I love the laid back more personal approach that comes from creating hair in a local salon.
I am passionate about making my client feel great as they leave the salon. I love to connect with my clients and listen to your hair needs, achieving your goals on your hair journey. I have been a hair artist for over 15 years and spent over 5 years in Sydney salons but returned to my roots at Nelson Bay to raise a family. When I’m not hair dressing I love spending time with my family and a great cup of coffee.
I am a hair artist with over 10 years experience. Joining the Fresh team in 2016 I have elevated my skills and experience, working on photoshoots and attending post graduate training in practical and theory. I have completed advanced balyage, color correction, grey coverage and expert toning courses. I have completed a 4 day Sharon Blaine Session Styling Bootcamp.
“I have a strong passion for building relationships and trust with my clients. I will strive to make your day as beautiful as you have mine as we go through the journey of creating beautiful hair”
I have spent my first year of my apprenticeship attending training with both TAFE and the Revlon Professional Training Academy, as well as working along side the senior artists at Fresh 4 days a week. During this time I have also completed the Revlon Professional Color Pro course, advanced balyage workshops and expert zone toning training sessions.
Moving into my second year I feel confident in my color work, and love creating hair you will love.
I have dreamed of becoming a hair dresser, so starting my apprenticeship at Fresh mid 2017 was a dream come true. I enjoy intense training along side the senior hair artists at Fresh, I have also attended multiple workshops in both practical coloring skills and color theory, including Revlon Professional Master Colour Course. I have perfected my blowdrying skills and people love my extra long scalp massages. I am confident I can give you hair you will love.
Starting as a mature age apprentice I followed my passion in Hair. I love learning all about the colour science and use my perfectionism to the advantage of my clients. I have pride in everything I do and cannot wait to learn everything I can from the amazing seniors I am surrounded by at Fresh.
