Since establishing the salon from 2000 I have a vast loyal clientele that I am humble to have. Clients have moved to other parts of the world from Australia and New Zealand to the U.S.A and Europe they still come here for me to manage there hair.
My strengths are Cutting and Blow-drying, Working with all types of hair from Straight & fine, to coarse, thick, curly middle eastern hair.
But don’t worry if you simply want a trim or if you want a complete restyle and change of look I can help advise you to achieve HAPPY HAIR.
Another big part of my skills, is the big world of COLOUR. I am LOREAL Colour trained and have a vast experience for the latest looks and trends such as Ombre, Balyage, Baby-lights, Micro-lights.
Or are you looking for a colour change from Home box dye disasters to a complete new colour and tone, I can best advise and show you what can be achieved.
Outside the salon I spend a lot of time with my beautiful wife who is a my world.
I also really enjoy keeping fit and hit the gym and you may even find me at the gym on the odd occasion at 3am.
I enjoy running but not quite marathon level yet. But above all I really appreciate each day and always have a positive attitude.
