I love teaching students how to be passionate about their work, be driven and committed to providing a quality service for their client. One of my keys to success; It’s not just about being a great hairdresser, it’s about getting to know your client and creating a connection that makes that client excited to visit you each time

 

Anita Kennedy

My career in hair began with an apprenticeship with Stefan, after graduating year 12. My time has been spent in my salon for the past 12 years. The most rewarding part of my career has been training apprentices, it is a labour of love for me. Always do what you love and have fun doing it. With commitment and determination, you can achieve anything and everything.
