SIMON FARRELLY

cutting since 1994
“Being able to express myself as an individual through my work is such a privilege and shibui has enabled me to do just that. I believe that if the hair is cut with consideration for the natural texture then it shouldn’t require forced styling to achieve a result that works with ease every time. I love what we’re about, low fuss and understated beauty. Let it be!”

PARK BROWN

cutting since 1998
“I love to cut using my understanding of different hair types and textures for the best possible outcome for both the client and myself. It’s important and a joy for me to work with natural hair growth and texture to create a shape that accentuates the client’s needs and features.”

“I love being part of the shibui team. I am proud and consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to learn and develop my skills in this environment. Although I enjoy the challenge of any head of hair, I strive to work with the natural texture and consider myself a specialist with curly hair.”

LUCIA O'SULLIVAN

cutting since 2002
“After 11 years with Daniel Galvin in London I migrated to Australia with my husband, Jerry. At first I was unsure about the shibui approach but now several years on I see that my work has certainly benefitted and that our team’s devotion to the brand is what captures the interest of clients. As a cutter I remain flexible and allow new ideas to light me up. I am proud to be a custodian of a brand with such long and well established roots.”

BRENT BARBER

“With more than 20 years in the game including 10 in London, it’s great being back in Melbourne with shibui. I love the freedom that comes with the shibui culture, and am excited that my personal style motto ‘imperfection is perfection’ is understood and embraced.”
