It's hard to believe its April already and after a busy January gutting and renovating my new premises then moving 8 years' worth of memories to our new position on Brunswick Street...the first 6 weeks have simply been a blur. The positive feedback from all our lovely clients has been so inspiring. I am happy to say that after a short settling in period, I feel so happy to of created a space that we feel proud to work in while providing a comfortable, professional, ambient space for all our gorgeous clients to enjoy as well.
If you've not seen our new space yet, feel free to pop in and say hi or book your next hair appointment so you can experience the new Aquae Sulis for yourself...We look forward to seeing you soon!

LARISSA: Helping my mum in her hair salon from about 5 years old (my little brother was a very willing participant, letting me set his hair, put makeup on him and shave his hairline off). I officially started an apprenticeship after I had finished studying business and marketing in 1993 aged 20.
NICK: I started hair when I was 18/19. My aim was never to work in a bad salon but somewhere I could advance my skills to be the best I could be. I'm still learning and that will never stop.
JENNI: At birth! Technically 1995 and I've never looked back, gaining experience over the last 21 years both within Australia and overseas.
LARISSA: A love a challenge, so to solve an issue a client has been having with their hair. I love to create an individual look for someone, giving back their confidence. I love making people feel special.
NICK: The most rewarding things for me are establishing a great clientele and creating amazing relationships.
JENNI: When I get to revitalize a client's look and they can enter the world feeling fabulous and like a "new" person.
LARISSA: Connecting with my clients and being a great listener. This way I can perfect the consultation and create their dream hair.
NICK: A great stylist is someone who is always looking at creating better techniques. Someone who can let go of the old and learn the new. If someone has been using the same techniques over a long period of time it becomes boring and they have nothing new to offer. If I can boast a bit here, over the last 18 months I have been to approx. 13 courses to advance and learn new skills. Sure, I don't use them all but I'm definitely a lot more skilled because of it.
JENNI: I'm a perfectionist and I think my attention to detail makes me a great stylist.
LARISSA: Awapuhi Wild Ginger Mirrorsmooth Primer by Paul Mitchell. If you have dry, frizzy and damaged hair, this product prepares the hair for anything you can throw at it. It leaves your hair feeling light, smooth and soft and goes on before any styling product.
NICK: For me, EVO Love Touch is my favourite as it makes the hair feel so silky soft with a beautiful natural, healthy feel. I use it everywhere I can for a super shiny, glamourous finish.
JENNI: I love EVO End Doctor. If you have split ends or rough textured hair, this product goes on and makes it feel like silk!
LARISSA: I haven't travelled much in the last 15 years so currently it's Hobart...Such a beautiful little city surrounded by my some of my favourite things...seafood, rolling hills and ocean.
NICK: A city is a city to me so I wouldn't say I had a favourite one but if I was to pick a city it would have to be Paris obviously, it's got everything I love from food to fashion. The fashion always strikes me with its individuality and it transports me to a fashion fantasy.
JENNI: I've been to many great cities in the world and it's difficult to choose just one...So I suppose I will be bias and say "Melbourne".
