A Year In Reflection

It's been a year of milestones-I'm another year older, the salon had its first birthday, and:
  1. We got published in Magazines (Instyle, Womens Health, Marie Claire, Oyster, Madison, Empower and a few more)
  2. Winner of best salon in Sydney voted by readers.
  3. Finalist for the city of Sydney business awards.
  4. Nominated by the Lord Mayor for a Sustainability Award.
  5. We directed hair shows for O&M and Nina Maya.
  6. We worked on Sydney, and Melbourne fashion weeks, doing such labels as Gorman, Ginger and Smart, Finetti, White Suede, Antipodean, Camilla Frank, Nicholas Molli and many more!
  7. Hair for the Sony Foundation ball, Chambord Shine Awards.
  8. The Seafolly launch for their new collection( one of my personal favs)
  9. We were chosen by Vodafone and Kahdo to be a sponsored driver!
  10. I starred in Adverts for O&M and Vodafone they are coming out next year (scary, no really scary)
  11. We also directed a show and commercial for Pushplay jeans.
Wow! What a year, and I'm sure there are things I have forgotten. 2008 has been a great year. The team has grown, our client base has grown. I am so happy with life here at the English, and its really down to the team around me, from my family, to the girls at work and my friends. To everybody who has supported us this year THANK YOU . Next year will be bigger, better and more fun. We came, we saw and we conquered!

Movie In The Salon

So we had an Australian Movie , shooting some scenes in the salon. It was amazing to watch, these actors turning it on. It was a lot of fun, i got to do the hair and gave the actor who was playing a hairdresser a few tips. Think he camped it up a little bit, or maybe im camp?

Lights, Camara, Action

I have just finished shooting a vodafone advert ,no im not giving up my day job, and im not expecting any job offers. I'm lucky enough to be given a car from Vodafone, and to be asked to be in one of their commercials is really cool. We filmed most of it here in the salon, and some of me driving. So super cool advertising for Stevie English Hair.
This monday we have an Australian feature film been filmed in the salon, only a few sceens but should be fun and interesting. And again some good advertising for us here at the English.

The Party Season

Christmas draws closer, the weather warms right up, and people in Sydney are partying! We at the English have had another great week, and today is our first ever Sunday trading.
Christmas party is on a roll, and tonight is the night. Im sorry if anyone see's any of us tonight, you might get sense out of some of us, but you might not! We have had a wonderful year and the we are going to let down our hair.

The Original Team

kirsty with long hair, and some Pirate! It has been agreat beginning!


The first year is the hardest, thats what everybody has said. We started with Kirsty and myself, now there is eight.
The party was a success, hairdressers love a party and the crew here are happy to party, so if their were no guests we would have fun, but as 150 to 200 people turned up over the course of the evening, a lot of fun was had. Im sure there was some sore heads after some cheap champagne and lots of Pimms. Im not putting any really messy photos, of which i have quite alot. To all of those that came out thank you. To everybody that has suppoerted Stevie English Hair over the last year thank you.
