After completing his apprenticeship in Adelaide, Josh made the move to Sydney and has been working in the city’s eastern suburbs ever since.

With 15 years of salon experience – nine of those with the Paloma family – Courtney has rightly earned a reputation as a colour wizard. She gets her thrills doing colour that gives her guests major confidence, whether that’s big changes, seamless balayage, colour corrections, or working with her guest’s natural base to produce gorgeous, lived-in colour. When it comes to highlights, Courtney is what some might call obsessed (she prefers ‘meticulous’), and when not in salon, she can be found at fashion week, hair shows, or on photo shoots.

“You can never stop learning and growing in your profession, and I love teaching and inspiring the next generation to achieve their ambitions”

Style Director & Colour Specialist

After six years as a hairdresser in Ireland – where she scooped up a prestigious colour award - Danielle moved to Sydney for the beach, outdoor lifestyle, food and coffee. She also found her passion for beautiful blondes (it’s her way of coping with the fact that she’s not a natural blonde herself), dimensional colour, blunt cuts with loads of texture and gorgeous waves. Danielle loves chatting with her guests to hone in on what they’re really after, and they always leave the salon with plenty of useful at-home tips and tricks.

“Seeing a guest’s journey, from before their service to after, makes me so happy and really love my job."

Who knows cool, French-girl balayage better than an actual French girl? Laura’s hairdressing career started over a decade ago in Nice, which is where she learned her seamless, free hand balayage and natural highlighting technique.

“ Establishing a relationship with my guests that's built on trust, plus making them feel amazing, gives me the greatest satisfaction.”
