Keiley

Advanced Emerging Stylist, Barber trainee

Hello, I’m Keiley! 

I’ve been hair dressing for nearly four years now and I’m still loving every minute of it! My favourite part about coming to work is seeing all the lovely guests walk out feeling fabulous with their new colour and hair styles. I am always enjoying learning new things and techniques from all the girls and I cannot wait to learn more as my apprenticeship comes to an end! I can do some pretty awesome braids and up styles as they are my favourite things to do!

Tash

Stylist, Makeup Artist Barber

Hey I'm Tash, I've been hairdressing for over 6 years.  I'm a qualified barber, stylist and make-up artist. I love doing fashion colours anything a bit wild, lets face it, we all have that inner wild side wanting to come out even if its just a few foils with fashion colour. I love when a client walks out feeling amazing. I will sit with you and listen to your needs and wants, discuss what we need to do to get to the final result all while you feel relaxed, looked after and pampered. In my spare time, I'm with my family, I enjoy fishing, camping and working on cars. If your ready for freshen up or wanna step out of your comfort zone and take a walk on the wild side with colour and rock it, give us a call.

McKayla

Emerging Stylist

Hey guys, my name is McKayla and I have been hairdressing for 5 years. I started my apprenticeship back in 2017. After going from salon to salon, I have finally found my forever salon here at Cactus Hair. The one thing I love about hairdressing is seeing the clients absolutely in love with their hair. Outside of work, I have a 3 year old son named Oscar that I spend all my time with. You'll find me in the salon from Tuesday to Friday and every second Saturday.

Tahlika

Emerging Stylist

Hey! I’m Tahlika and I’m one of the apprentices at Cactus Hair! During my time at school I studied my Cert II, then left school to pursue my career in hairdressing, adoring every minute of it. I love making clients look and feel their best whether it’s with a fresh colour or style service or all the in-betweens! When I’m not at work you’ll catch me in the gym, sweating off the weekend shenanigans and preparing myself for a week of creativity and self expression for my clients. If you want to add some fun to your hair, ask for me!

Jess

Hey I’m Jess,

I’ve been hairdressing for over a year now and am one of the youngest on the team you’ll only really catch me at work on late nights or Saturday or a Monday as I’m still at school. My favourite thing about hairdressing is seeing the look on others faces when the walk out the door and meeting new people. In my free time I’m either trying to smash out tafe or with my horses. If your looking for a killer hair straighten come see me :)
