If you could live in one person’s hair for the day, who would it be and why?

Sienna Miller! From pixie to boho, she can wear it all – especially her latest, sexy-textured bob. Cool and carefree – I love it!


The one product you could never live without?

bhave Deep Intense Conditioning Masque. Whether I’ve spent a day at the beach or had a big morning at the gym, my hair remains frizz-free! My hair has truly never felt so healthy.


Why is it, do you think, that blondes have more fun?

We definitely do!
There’s something about a beautiful, bright shiny blonde that provides the wearer this great, inner-confidence. And now more than ever with the new Anaka Blonde Shampoo that brightens and tones simultaneously – I love it!


Your number one life/inspirational quote.

Love life and life loves you right back!


You’re on holidays right now, where are you and what do you have planned for the afternoon?

Just at home chilling out with plans for the beach this afternoon, followed by Pilates and Yoga.


What is your morning hair routine?

Thankfully, with the bhave masque, I don’t have to do much at all! In saying this, I do use a volume shampoo and conditioner then leave in cream.

As for styling, lately I’ve been drying my hair then pinning the fringe up so I get a textured look with longer lasting volume. Finished off with Sebastian Drynamic Dry Shampoo.


If you weren’t a hairdresser, what would you do for a living?

I would love to teach Pilates and Yoga! The more balance, strength and flexibility in your life the better.


True or False: All is fair in love and war.



Joel or Benji Madden?

Joel – he’s a family man, and he’s proud of it.


How do you hope each and every one of your clients feel when they leave the salon?

I hope they feel amazing, and importantly, love their hair not only when they leave the salon, but when they’re at home, between salon visits.
