How and why did you become a Hairdresser?

I started hairdressing when I was 17, after deciding that university was not for me. After I started my apprenticeship, I never wanted to stop. I love the client interaction and the creativity of being a colourist.

What is the most satisfying thing that you do in your work?

Building relationships with clients. I have known some of my Sydney clients for 8 years, and they have become great friends. We have a party in the salon every year to thank our clients and have a great time.

What would you say defines your approach to Hairdressing?

The O&M philosophy of ‘original thinking’ sums up my approach to hair. I believe that brilliant results can be achieved without damaging hair. And also, I seek to create beautiful, fashionable hair colours that are flattering to the client.

As a Hairdresser how can you empower the consumer?

By giving them advice, not opinions. I work with them to get a great result, and also to satisfy their requests. I talk about how to protect and maintain the condition of their hair, and give at-home styling advice.

Your top tip for finding your wellbeing!

Don’t take life too seriously- it is there to be enjoyed!

How do you balance family and work?

I work all weekend, so I have Monday and Tuesdays off, and these are family days. Also, the kids are often in the salon- everyone loves them. Running a business takes a lot of time, but I just make my spare time really productive. Also, we have great babysitters for nights out!

What is one spare time activity you most enjoy?

SURFING!! And going to watch the Sydney Swans play.

Who or what is your inspiration?

life is my inspiration, love it, live it ,laugh at it. You do all that and the rest sorts itself out.

Catch Steve at his Sydney Salon or on Twitter and say hello to rock star hair today!
