This month I have been… as proud as can be! Rokstarand I have been nailing it in the crazy world of hairdressing industry awards! Spanning business, creative and educational categories, I am so pumped that we have made the finals in absolutely everything we entered!

In the business focussed Australian Hair Industry Awards we have made the finals for… (drum roll please)

  • In Salon Training, which reflects all of the hard work that my team and I put in before and after hours to be the very best we can be
  • Business Director of the Year – as it suggests, this awards a successful business owner who is making waves in the industry (I think that’s me!)
  • Queensland State Salon of the Year – this category is about my whole team and how we pull together to create a place that you all want to keep coming back to time and again

In addition, I made the finals of the Australian FAME Team, which is a year-long programme of knock-out opportunities to be mentored by industry legends both in Australia and in the UK and to appear on stage at hair exhibitions in Sydney and London. I recently went to Sydney where I had to complete three unseen hair styling and haircut challenges, in addition to presenting a model live on stage and answer some questions posed by some of the biggest names in the Australian hair industry. Nervous? Just a little bit!

Finally I have made the final six in Queensland Hairdresser of the Year at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards, one of our industry’s premier photographic and creative awards competitions. My collection called ‘Existential’ is one of only six in Queensland to be chosen to make the finals amongst some amazing company and many of my friends – needless to say I am BEYOND excited!


The AHIA awards are announced in Brisbane on 26 March while FAME and AHFA are announced on 2 April in Sydney, so stay tuned and keep it all crossed for me!!!!!
