I’ve been known for many things in this industry but one I’m most proud of is becoming the first salon owner in Australia to be awarded Australian Government approval to operate a Rent A Chair salon. True story!

While an accomplishment indeed, it did come at a price. Two years of my life, over $10,000 in legal and accounting fee’s, and $hit tone of frustration. But we made it. The first ever LEGAL Salon Rent A Chair system… Boom Shakalaka!

Other accomplishments stem the 25 odd years of being a mover and shaker in the Australian, Asian and American salon and beauty industry. Brag Sheet Warning! (This is your queue to zone out coz the braggin’s about to start).

Jokes aside I’m truly proud to be an award-winning hairstylist, platform artist, author, speaker, international session stylist, and creator of celebrity brand education platforms.

I’ve shared my message across three continents for leading companies such as Schwarzkopf, Redken, Wella, Kim Vo, Matrix and Goldwell.

My unique approach to business and personal brand creation led to the expansion of my business in multiple locations across Western Australia and Beijing, yep we’re talking the Beijing in China.

Although a feat in of itself, I’m still one of Australia’s most awarded hair stylists and entrepreneurs.

I’ve consumed a couple of Australian Stylist of the Year nominations and have also taken home a couple of golds for the prestigious Hair Expo Excellence in Salon Marketing and the Best New Salon Design. Not so shabby!

So welcome and if you’re going to join us on this Rent A Chair journey then I congratulate you on wanting to enjoy your time behind the chair and finally make some real cashamondo.
