Larissa began her career in hairdressing 25 years ago after spending her teenage years assisting in her mother's hair salon. After completing a business and marketing diploma Larissa then completed her apprenticeship and opened her first salon in Rowes Arcade, Brisbane. Specialising in bridal hair including 5 years of hairstyling for the Brisbane Bridal Show she then trained and qualified three apprentices and had the opportunity to educate fellow hairdressers in colouring and bridal hair for Wella Professional. After years of hard work, dedication, professional and personal growth, Larissa decided to step back for a short while and spend some precious time with her young son. In December 2007 Larissa purchased AquaeSulis Hair with her mother, now an accomplished hairdresser of 50 years by forming a joint venture until Ailsa's retirement in December 2015. Larissa moved the business around the corner to 890 Brunswick Street in 2016 and has continued her journey within the new premises with a small team of passionate hairdressers. Larissa is an accomplished hair stylist and colourist with a preference towards classic cutting and seamless, natural colouring techniques and is highly experienced in both Great Lengths single bonded and GL tape hair extensions. She enjoys the simple pleasures in life, family, international cuisine, music and health plus her two gorgeous poodles, Teddy & Rocky. With hair as her passion, embracing ongoing education through mentoring sessions, seminars and courses, Larissa will always do her best in providing the latest trends and high quality products to her clients.
Skye began and completed her apprenticeship at AquaeSulis under Larissa's guidance and has proven to have a meticulous eye for detail, wonderfully versatile, creative, efficient & loyal hairdresser with a passion towards formal & bridal hair, balayage/foiling & long hair cutting & styling. Skye continues to train & attend multiple colouring/ cutting courses throughout the year to upskill and provide on trend & classic techniques to her customers.
