About Us

Where it Started

Iris, a seasoned professional with over 30 years in the hairdressing industry, has nurtured her passion for both hairstyling and entrepreneurship, culminating in the creation of this exceptional salon.

Her journey began with training in Belgium, followed by a unique experience styling hair aboard cruise ships. Settling in the scenic south of England, she honed her skills at an extraordinary salon, working alongside some of the world’s top hairstylists.

This invaluable experience paved the way for Iris to embark on her entrepreneurial adventure. Taking a leap of faith, she founded her own salon, combining her talent and vision to offer exceptional hairstyling services. As life unfolded and her family grew, Iris sought the perfect environment for her daughter, leading her to choose Australia as their new home.

In Australia, Iris took on diverse roles in her salon journey, from
managing a home-based salon to a smaller boutique establishment and
now, a thriving large-scale salon with an exceptional team. The story is
still unfolding, and Iris is excited for the next chapter in her journey,
making her mark in the Australian hairdressing scene. Welcome to this
exciting phase of her incredible hairdressing adventure.

Fiona is amazing, makes me feel so at ease and takes such great care of me. She’s always happy to let me do a bit of work or have a chat - whatever I need from that time and I always come away looking and feeling great! She is such a professional and knows exactly what my hair needs to look it’s best after I’ve neglected it for so long. Can’t recommend Fiona more highly!

Beautiful colour by Helena. I needed to rush to another appointment and she was very understanding in getting me out on time. All the other staff were friendly and the salon had a good fit out with plenty of space between clients.

Staff are so welcoming and friendly, the products smell fabulous, Fiona really took her time to tame my neglected, rebellious mane and is clearly very talented. 5 star experience.
