Meet The Team
Meet our experienced team at Samantha Jones Hair Company
Jonathan – General Manager
A former professional photographer who moved on to managing nightclubs and restaurants, Jonathan has always loved fashion, food, and music, and this love of creative work combined with his extensive hospitality background is reflected in the care and attention that he brings into the Salon every day. Jonathan has owned SjHCo since January 2018 and has fallen in love with the industry.
He is inspired by seeing the results that the team can achieve when they transform a guest’s hair, and by helping people to achieve their goals both personally and professionally.
Any spare time is spent with family, and Jonathan loves nothing more than the simple pleasures – blue jeans and boots, good food and wine, and time outdoors.
Sarah – Senior Stylist / Operations Manager
Sarah is one of our amazing Senior Stylists as well as our Operations Manager and has been a part of the team since 2016. She has been in the hair industry FOREVER because she loves being able to make people feel better and more confident in themselves. She also treasures the relationships she builds with her guests – they become a part of her family!
Sarah’s specialities include cutting (loves short hair and bobs), and foiling – she has a slight obsession with foil! She seeks inspiration from Papas & Pace Advanced Hairdressing.
Her favourite colour changes depending on her mood, and in her spare time she enjoys camping and spending time at the beach with her family, as well and running and anything else involving fitness.
Abby – Senior Stylist
I’m sure many of you have seen Abby’s smiley face around the Salon now, she has been a part of the SjHCo team since November 2017. Abby is one of our Senior Stylists and has been in the industry since 2103. Hairdressing has always been one of Abby’s biggest passions, and she especially enjoys foiling, cutting, blow waves and balayage.
Abby’s favourite colour is light blue and in her spare time she enjoys camping, going to cute cafes, and catching up with her siblings.
Kasey – Senior Stylist
Kasey started with us in March 2018 after relocating from Hope Island on the Gold Coast. She has been in the hair industry for over 15 years and is incredibly talented – we are so lucky to have her join us!
Kasey began her journey in hairdressing when she was only young. After always styling, playing, and practising with her own hair, she made the decision she wanted to recreate that for other people.
She believes you can’t have a great style without a complimentary colour so she equally enjoys both colouring and cutting. Her favourite colouring technique at the moment is balayage & contouring!
Her inspiration comes from the works of Sheree Knobel, Natalie Anne, Rebecca Taylor, and Guy Tang.
In her spare time Kasey is a bit of a self-confessed health nut. She has recently also qualified as a personal trainer on top of her hairdressing skills. She finds that maintaining a healthy lifestyle made other areas in life easier to manage and deal with, so she loves being able to pass that on to others.
Tahlia – Senior Stylist
Tahlia has been a part of the SjHCo team since November 2017. She has been in the hair industry for almost 7 years and is loving every second of it!
Tahlia specialises in foiling, braiding, and upstyling. Her favourite colour is pink and in her free time she loves playing Oztag and being outdoors.
Demi – Emerging Stylist
Demi has been at Samantha Jones Hair Company since November 2015 and has been working in the industry since 2013. She is currently in the final stages of her apprenticeship and is super excited to be a fully qualified Stylist by the end of 2018!
Demi’s favourite aspect of hairdressing is colour and long hair styling. She draws inspiration from the works of Natalie Anne and Not Another Salon.
In her spare time Demi loves getting her nose stuck into a good book, going to the beach and spending time with her family.
Tiff – Emerging Stylist
Tiffany-Jayne (Tiff) started her apprenticeship with SjHCo in June 2016, and this is her first role in the industry.
Tiff loves braiding, styling, and customer care. She enjoys seeing when a guest does a big change with their hair and playing her role in making that happen.
Her favourite colour is yellow (just check her car!) and in her spare time Tiff enjoys nothing more than taking her dog to the beach and spending time with family and friends.
Ashleigh – Salon Coordinator Number 1
Ash is our super-efficient Salon Coordinator! Her role involves taking care of our guests, scheduling appointments and events, marketing, and supporting our Stylists. She also takes care of our various online pages and groups. She has been a part of the team since August 2017.
Ash’s favourite part of working at SjHCo is seeing the transformations that happen in salon as well as engaging with our guests every day!
Her favourite colour is red and in her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going to the beach, cooking, and renovating her house.
Zoe – Salon Coordinator Number 2
Zoe joined the team at SjHCo early in 2018as our casual Salon Coordinator, and covers for Ash on the front desk, juggling this role with parenting for her two gorgeous little ones.
Having been in the industry for over 10 years, Zoe is a fully qualified Senior Stylist, which comes in handy on many occasions!
Zoe originally became a hairdresser purely because she always wanted to, so she made it happen.
Making people happy is something Zoe loves. Her favourite colour is purple, and in what little spare time she has Zoe enjoys taking in a show, grabbing a nap, and spending time with family.
