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 more than 25 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.”

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.”

JOANNE TSAOUSIS

“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.”

EMILY OLSSON

hair since 2010
“I always strive to introduce options to my clients. I aim for them to leave shibui feeling confident with the outcome, and comfortable about how my hair cut will evolve over the coming weeks and months. Your hair should reflect who you are.”

JACOB WILLIAMS

cutting hair since 2014
“Starting out as an apprentice at shibui taught me how to tailor a haircut to each individual. Now that I have grown to become part of the cutting team, I love to use peoples natural hair texture as the base for all my work creating a style for them that works best with their natural hair and educating them on how to achieve the same results at home.”
