Kylie, Andrea, Cherie and Tamara welcome you to the new salon
Anyone who regularly frequents Hair by Kylie, knows they will walk out grinning, not just from the quality hairdressing – but the quips and laughs around the mirrors and basins. Kylie Betteridge tells us about the move into her bright new premises, and assures us the experience will be even better.
What brought on the move for the salon?
A little while ago Andrew (who is a bus mechanic on Fraser Island for The Kingfisher Bay Resort and Village company), Jasmin (who is in year 9), Madison (year 5) and myself decided that we needed to separate my business from our private lives, by putting a little more space between home and the salon. So we set out on a mission – and here we are today at 36 Tingira Close.
What does the new salon have the old one didn’t?
The new salon boasts more comforts and space with a breezy outlook, but with the same atmosphere, thanks to my amazing workmates.
Tell us about your team….
Andrea started with me quite a few years ago to help me out as a “tea and tidy” (not what we really called her) and she has now progressed to a fantastic trades person in the hairdressing industry.
Cherie joined us as an adult apprentice just over a year ago, and is fulfilling her passion to become a Hairdresser and is well on her way to adapting to a new occupation.
I give both Andrea and Cherie credit, as adults it is not easy to make the decision to study again, juggling training etc. around families and other work commitments, but they prove it’s possible (and hopefully it inspires others to do what makes them happy or make occupational changes) and it all adds to the zaniness of our working environment.
Plus I’d like to welcome Tamara to our team as salon Nail Technician – specialising in gel and acrylic nails, manicures and pedicures.
What do you pride yourselves on?
We pride ourselves on being a team, and providing all who visit our salon a welcoming and uplifting experience – whether it be for a hair or beauty service or even just a cuppa and a laugh if you’re feeling flat, and that you leave our presence with a smile on your face.
When did you move to the area and why?
All I can say is that I’m very happy Andrew and I left Woombye to travel around Australia 17 years ago. We popped into Rainbow Beach and have been here ever since….. we call it our “Rainbow Rut” and love it.
Hair By Kylie is now located at 36 Tingira Close, Rainbow Beach and is open Mondays to Thursdays, 9am to 2.30pm, with later hours available by appointment: 0427 702-110
