5 minutes with Susie Dimov from Kundalini Hair.


How long have you been in the hairdressing industry and where did you start your career?
I started my career in Canberra and have been hairdressing for 27 years.

Tell us about your salon.
I love my salon and my team. We wanted to create a place where people could come and relax while introducing a new level of service to the Canberra public. We believe we’ve achieved this – the feedback from clients is overwhelmingly wonderful. Patrons return again and again because they know they’ll receive a consistent, international standard from our talented and dedicated team.

With everyone being so busy these days, so pushed for time, we wanted the clients experience with us to be as relaxed as a possible. We created a basin room which is our “quiet space” – a space where staff and clients don’t talk and clients can lie back, relax and take a deep breath to meditate. I’ve tried to recreate the salon experience that I would expect if I was a client.

What is your vision behind styling and cutting?
I always offer clients my interpretation of what’s currently fashionable and what’s going to suit them rather than going with a trend and sticking it on everyone (that drives me crazy).

What is your favourite O&M product from the range?
I love Rootalicious! When I’m looking for volume and bounce it’s always at the top of my list.

What’s the best thing about your job?
I love the diversity of my job. I feel blessed that I get to work in so many different areas of hairdressing and my business and spend most weeks doing a combination of mentoring the staff, working with clients, marketing, researching new brands and the list goes on. I’ve just started K-Store which is a gift store within the salon – so I’m always looking for new and exciting brands to bring to Canberra. Life is good!

Accolades:
At Kundalini we were finalists for Best New Salon in 2006 and in the early days when I had Next hair I won the prestigious Hair expo marketing of the year award in 1998 and I was also a finalist in the Telstra business awards.

Thinking of changing things up a little this year? We talk to master colourist Stevie Corthine, owner of Stevie English Hair, about his hair predictions for 2014.

What styles will be trending in 2014?
I think we are going to see a return of the seventies – big, sexy and carefree. These hairstyles are easy to dress up for a night out or look casually laid back for everyday.

What colours will be trending in 2014?
I love all colours and at Stevie English Hair we want to make people look the best so we make sure to chose colours that suit them. On trend colours this year will be golds and oranges to keep with the pastel theme as of late the pastels becoming far softer and muted.

What cuts will be trending this year?
We’ll be seeing more of the long bob this year, or ‘lob’ as they’re more affectionately known.

5 minutes with Eugene Ong from Urbanhair.


How long have you been in the hairdressing industry and where did you start your career?
I’ve been working in the hairdressing industry since 1978 and trained at the Alan International School and Jingled Hairdressing School in London. After working at various salons in London I moved to Australia for a while before returning to Singapore in 1989.

Tell us about your salon.
Since 1989, Urbanhair has been positioned as a trendy, upmarket and lifestyle orientated unconventional salon that focuses on quality services using premium products for people who appreciate a quality lifestyle.

What’s the best thing about your job?
Being able to do what I love.

What is your favourite O&M product from the range?
Surf Bomb Sea Salt Spray and Know Knott Conditioning Detangler because they give a matt finish and a tangle free result.
