Hamish is Available for hair cutappointments Monday to Saturday.
At the age of 17, Hamish was sure he wanted to be a hairdresser and was eager to learn from the best. He began his apprenticeship as a barber spending his early years refining men’s cutting techniques and learning the importance of attention to detail. Soon looking for more scope, Hamish decided to develop his skills further and move into ladies haircutting and styling which is when he joined Stelios Papas salon in Brisbane.
“At the time, Stelios was the only man to work for. He had produced some of Australia’s finest hairdressers and I knew if I wanted to be the best, I had to be part of his team.”
After completing his apprenticeship, and knowing that cutting and styling was his passion, Hamish moved to London, the home of hairdressing technique and foundation, where he worked in a leading Mayfair salon, mahogany hairdressing. During Hamish’s time in London he was able to ground his hairdressing technique which he is constantly developing to create up to date and wearable hair fashion for his consumers. Hamish has since developed a strong reputation with his consumers and hairdressers alike passing on his knowledge through educational workshops for the hairdressing industry and the team at PEOPLE Hairdressing.
in 2004 hamish launched mahogany hairdressing in sydney, australia. following from the success of mahogany and carrying the momentum forward, in 2009 Hamish rebranded and initiated the PEOPLE Hairdressing brand, with an ethos around a simple philosophy of individualised, contemporary and wearable hair fashions. Hamish’s down-to-earth nature meant he has attracted and built a team of highly-skilled hairdressers with similar personalities who made PEOPLE Hairdressing synonymous with great hair and real customer service.
in 2015, hamish began working for paul gerrard as director where he works alongside an amazing team of celebrated international stylists and technicians.
