Talented both of them, there's no doubt about that.
When the hair academy awards got announced in Sydney on Monday 8th June, our team had a full freak out. To have been blessed to take home the Hair Expo trophy (and how good looking is our Bruce - yes the trophy has a name) for SALON BUSINESS OF THE YEAR, has left everyone speechless. Thankfully there was a bit of a walk up to the stage and Uros and Mojca managed to say some well deserved thank yous.
And we would here like to say THANK YOU again to our fabulous, hardworking and super talented team, our amazing loyal clients that we are blessed to have act as the best ambassadors for our salon and to the many companies we collaborate with to bring to our clients and to the hair industry something a little bit special. Thank you to one and all for all your amazing support !!
