Meet the Team
Salon Director | Stylist | Spa Therapist
I first started working in the beauty industry in Sydney in the 80's as a beauty therapist and opened my first salon in 1986. In the early 90's I went back to study hairdressing and managed a full service salon since then, with a short break of having a spa / product focused business for 18months in Kareela. In 2018 we moved into our current premises, still within the Kareela shopping village, a unique concept boutique, with a focus on being a natural, organic & a toxic free salon fused with high tech anti ageing machinery
I love working with other creative minds, and at Shanga we have an amazingly talented, motivated & passionate team.
I am definitely very protective of our salon culture and work hard to preserve the level of teamwork and mutual respect my team fosters.
Spa Therapist | Brow Specialist
Being passionate about Skin Care I am excited about the organic & wellbeing aspects - in particular, the result driven products combined with hi-tech machines delivering amazing results.
As a holistic and organic salon, the introduction of Nutrition is a natural & good fit to our ethos. With so many health and skin issues coming up these days I was excited to begin my journey into gut health and how it relates to skin.
Spa Therapist | Brow Stylist
I have always had a heart for service and worked in the hospitality industry until finding my true calling in Beauty Therapy. I love pampering and spoiling our clients and am thrilled when they leave the spa feeling totally renewed.
I am somewhat brow obsessed, and pride myself on creating a beautiful lash and brow experience. I also really enjoy massage and spa body treatments. I love how those treatments make people feel.
Senior Stylist | Blonde Specialist
My husband & I moved our little family to Kirrawee in 2019. I have worked in Aveda salons here and abroad and love the opportunity to work with an Australian organic brand - O&M.
I love working with the Shanga Team and even with over 15 years of experience within the industry, its wonderful to work with like minded peers which allow my creativity to expand and grow.
I love all aspects of hairdressing - colour and cutting and specialise in balayage and upstyles
I am available on Fridays from 9 to 4
Make-up Artist | Emerging Hair Stylist
My absolute passion is makeup. I love working with make-up and showing people just how beautiful they are. Confidence is a powerful thing.
I Specialise in Event, Formal & Bridal makeup, and this year I had the opportunity to work at the Arias and fashion parades. I am furthering my skills and incorporating hairdressing which I’m due to complete in March 2020. I especially love doing the beautiful blow drys that compliment my makeups.
