“Having worked as a stylist for almost 30 years, I can honestly say I still Love my job! Its no surprise to me that Hairdressing has routinely been voted one of the happiest jobs in the world due to its creativity and job satisfaction. I love that each client that sits in my chair presents a new challenge with their own unique requests.

Theres no greater pleasure than seeing someone leave our salon feeling better about themselves and their hair.
