Meet The Team
Meet our experienced team at Samantha Jones Hair Co.
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.
Coral-Lee – Salon Manager
Coral-Lee joined the team at SjHCo in December 2018. Starting in the industry at 14 years old as a school-based apprentice, Coral loves everything about hairdressing – the big colour corrections and transformations, and just seeing our guests leave the Salon looking beautiful and happy!
A true foodie who loves both cooking and eating, other leisure pursuits include taking her dogs for a walk, enjoying time with family, decorating her new home, and getting away camping when there is time!
This dynamic lady is an experienced Salon Manager who is leading the team to great things and is inspiring in every way!
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.
Kimberley – Senior Stylist
Kimberley joined the SjHCo team in August 2018, after moving down from the Sunshine Coast. Kimberley got into hairdressing because she loves making people feel good and confident about themselves and likes to think of hair as her canvas.
Being able to create something that comes from her guest’s imagination and having the ability to express that for others to see and admire is her passion. Kimberley loves all colour work, but especially gorgeous blondes, as well as creating soft elegant styles.
Following quite a few stylists on Instagram, Kimberley is always looking for new and improved hairdressing methods!
A country girl at heart, horses have always been a huge part of her life – she learnt to ride before she could walk. In her spare time, Kimberley loves spending time at her parent’s property.
Lisa – Senior Stylist
Lisa joined the team at SjHCo in October 2018. She is a passionate stylist who has been in the hairdressing industry forever! (i.e. 30+ years).
An avid cricket and Adelaide Crows fan, her favourites styles are the classics, plus colour work and short hair – especially bobs. Lisa likes to add a special little bit of love to every style she creates.
Seeking inspiration from Carla Bond, Guy Tang, Toni and Guy and her fellow team; when Lisa is not in Salon working her magic, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, and cooking up an Italian feast. Other passions include wine (think bubbles!), the beach, day trips, gardening, markets, and finding old furniture treasures to transform.
Favourite colours – yellow, black, and white.
Favourite food – Italian
If you have been in Salon you have heard Lisa’s laugh, as she is always laughing!

With a passion for hairdressing and personal development, Kirra loves all aspects of hairdressing, especially colour work – drawing inspiration both from her mentors and Toni & Guy.
Kirra is constantly amazed by how much better people feel with a beautiful fresh cut or colour, and how it instantly makes them happy.
Kirra enjoys creating that feeling for our guests in the salon. When not at SjHCo, Kirra works in hair retail and enjoys taking time out with family as well as making memories with her daughter.
