Clients come to experience her fantastic haircutting and colouring skills as well as her extension work./

Monica has a sharp technical eye for hairdressing,and says “I get motivated by the team I work with, they are the ones who inspire me. I love the feeling of pleasing the clients by trying my very best to deliver the best quality service." Monica has now a wealth of cutting knowledge and looks forward to delivering excellent cutting and colour services to her clients.

She has great passion, enthusiasm and experience to create a very personal style for all her clients. Suitability to the individuals’ lifestyle is a top priority.

Dianna joined the Team in August 2016 and has been in the industry for about 17 years now. Two things that are most rewarding to her are making people look and feel good about themselves.  She enjoys a good challenge whether it's a great haircut or a fabulous hair colour makeover.  

“The best compliment is someone else complimenting my work.”

She has the ability to find the delicate balance between fulfilling each client's individual styling desires while maintaining an open forum for self-expression.  She specializes in cutting and styling women, men and children's hair as well as colouring and perming.

Jess has been in the industry for eight years - because of growing up in Banyo, she is very excited to work in the community she calls home. She looks forward to seeing both familiar and new faces in her chair.


She has gained excellent experience in all areas of the salon and is a well rounded stylist who excels in cutting, colouring, and formal styling. Your relaxing visit with Jess will leave you looking your better than ever.
