CUTTERS

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.”

BRENT BARBER

cutting since 1993
“With nearly 30 years in the game, including 10 in one of London’s most awarded salons, it’s great being back in my native Melbourne with shibui. I love the freedom that comes with the shibui cutting culture, and am excited that my personal style motto ‘imperfection is perfection’ is understood and embraced.”

FRANCESCA COLLARD (FRANKIE)

cutting hair since 2005
“Originally from UK , 6 years ago I travelled solo and found home across the pond in Melbourne. Sadly my English accent is fading and turning more Aussie by the day, could be a good thing could be a bad thing. I’ve been working as a cutter at Shibui for over 4 years but all up been hairdressing for 15…… I love my job and the people I’m surrounded by, they make my job a joy and a pleasure. Working with such freedom to create, I thrive to give not only great visual detail and end result but mostly quality hair that is beautiful and easy to maintain at home, low-fuss shibui hair.”

ELISA DE GRANDIS

Working with hair since 2001
“Passionate about the craftsmanship of hair cutting, I am an accomplished hairstylist with over 20yrs of industry experience. I encourage my clients to embrace a natural way of wearing their hair by creating low maintenance styles that can be easily cared for at home. I’m also obsessed with wavy and curly hair.

I love people and hair, so working with hair is a pleasure and working at shibui epitomizes everything I love about hairdressing.”
