The women who we admire from bygone eras all have strong personal image and great personal style.

There are many successful, glamourous and beautiful women doing their thang in this world, but lets take a look at 3 Modern Sirens who have a very strong public-image and a definite style that they showcase not only in what they do, but also in their signature hair and make up style….

I first fell in love with this style of make up a few years ago when I saw it in an editorial spread with make up and hair by Max May. The model’s hair was platinuum blonde, tied atop of her head in a rough texturised bun. Her stunning blue eyes popped out from the image, eyelids toned with beautiful muted browns and cheeks bronzed just enough to give her an overall healthy glow.
This look is currently experiencing a resurgence in the Australian fashion scene – just take a look at the August 2012 issue of Vogue with model Abbey Lee Kershaw gracing the cover, as well as the more extreme and classic version of the look showcased on the July 2012 cover with Delta Goodrem.

After a thorough consult on cut and colour he delivered outstanding results! Natural colour and a great cut that has been so easy to care for.
Two visits now and both were on point.
Thank you Scott!
I have never done a review on anything before in my life but I honestly cant rave enough about this salon. I had not gone to a hairdresser for almost two years because I was so attached to my long black hair. Even though its just hair and it will grow back, this was a big deal for me. Having the thought of it getting cut scared the heck out of me and the anxiety I would get if I had gone to a hairdresser that didn't give me the results I wanted.
After reading several reviews on here I was 100 percent certain that I was going to Lily's and my hair's destiny was going to be in Sam's magical hands haha. She had so many good reviews I just had to choose her!
From the moment I walked in I was welcomed, I showed Sam a few pictures of my desired look but was still uncertain what would look good for me. Sam had walked me through the whole process together, she was patient and gave me her honest opinions which I greatly appreciated. I felt so reassured that as a result I confidently agreed to have her cut off almost 4 inches of my hair!
Overall, I absolutely love my haircut I wouldn’t have it any other way plus I’ve received so many compliments! I’m confident rocking this new hair do and surprisingly to say, I can’t wait to cut my hair next here. You’ve definitely gained a regular customer. Thankyou Sam and the team you have made this experience unforgettable!
Sam has been amazing through the process of getting my hair back to health. Always giving me honest and caring advice.
I cannot thank her enough. I have confidence back!
You are a Rockstar Sam �
Came in feeling rather ordinary and walked out feeling nothing less than EXTRAordinary :)! Loved every minute from the great intro conversation to the lush head massage then to be seated with drinks and nibbles while you worked your magic topping it all off with a blow dry that lasted days lol!
WELL DONE and THANK YOU Christie Lee! Great space, fantastic talent!
Couldn't be happier! Thank you.
Love it xx :)
So here is what it comes down to; if you are looking for a place with a subtle yet modern ambience, fantastic customer service, and the best hair you will ever have, then you have found it.
Who knew having ones hair done could be an earthy and authentic experience?
This is a business which cares about their clientele without the need to be pretentious.
One of the most notable things about the salon, is its welcoming atmosphere and sense of spaciousness.
The staff are attentive, highly skilled, and able to listen.
Patricia worked miracles with my somewhat neglected and unkempt tresses.
Thank you so much for a great day.
