REBECCA STRAIN

“People are unique – no two heads of hair are the same. When I figured out that individuality was the true beauty, I then began to accept the unique and work with the natural to achieve the best results for my clients.
Rather than over indulge with colour, my approach is to embrace natural depth adding personality to hair and using clever placement.”

LAURA BRAND

“The challenge I embrace is making a head of hair that is obviously over-coloured look more natural. I love how interesting & intricate creating beautiful blondes can be. It is the subtle contrasting details that make all the difference. I get a great deal of joy by simply being honest and straightforward, gaining trust & leaving my clients with a fresh insight to their own hair.”

LYNDA LEE LEWIS

We welcome LLL to the shibui colour team. With 20 years experience Lynda previously owned a salon in Sydney and was a Goldwell colour technician. She landed in Melbourne after a few years in London and managed to squeeze in a fine arts degree too!
“It has always been my dream to relocate to Melbourne and join the team that has always inspired me.”

JULIE LONDON

“I particularly love hair painting. Freehand painting is the kindest and most practical way to lighten, add texture and excite the eye. Painting compliments shibui’s ‘low fuss’ philosophy. Even just a tad of painting will go a long way, adding light and shade to most heads of hair.”

REJOICE PHIRI

“Experience has instilled in me the joy of simplicity and the beauty of minimalism. I care about the health of our clients hair and aspire to achieve a unique, low maintenance look with a touch of sophistication.”

JORDY BENNETT

colouring hair since 2006
“Like so many New Zealanders, Melbourne always had an appeal. After a 2 year stint in London I have now settled at shibui. I have always relished the diversity and innovation hairdressing offers but my passion has always been colour. At shibui I can specialize, something very few salons offer.”

YANON

colouring hair since 2006
“I decided to specialize in colour when I joined the Prema team in Sydney. Since then my skills have taken me to London and now shibui Melbourne. My classic foil work has always been a stronge asset for me and now I am enjoying adapting my work to the shibui brand. Incorporating foils with freehand painting offers versatility and change. ”
