😍I have worked for esteem hair beauty spa just over seven year now, making it 16 years in total for my hairdressing career.
💗🤍My speciality lies within getting that gorgeous creamy blonde look for our blondies (being one myself!) and I absolutely love the transformation stages from start to finish – creating a whole new look and style for the clients!
💛 Martin and Allison have given me an incredible opportunity to work with likeminded creatives who are passionate about hair. The esteem salon is an innovative salon where learning and developing is highly encouraged, and we’re given the opportunities to learn new techniques & on-trend initiates. I have also been able to understand the business as a whole, including the benefits of social media and having an authentic online presence.
✨My favourite memory with the esteem salon includes competing in the L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards twice, alongside Allison, as well as having this opportunity to be part of L’Oreal ID Artist Programme which saw me working at Melbourne Fashion week, overseeing photoshoots and having the opportunity to be part of a photoshoot for Vogue Australia when the business turned 20 and Allison gave me the opportunity to help out!
