The Harley Davidson riding Chihuahua owner. The ex-metal worker turned award winning stylist and salon owner who became one of the most recognised names in the global hairdressing industry. Philip Barwick is no doubt one of a kind. Philip walks to work grateful he got that one break… the one that means he gets to express himself creatively everyday, whether it be on the salon floor, behind a fashion week runway or on the world hairdressing education stage. #hairdressingisfun
Incredibly proud of all his achievements at Muse, Roger, stylist, sometimes-colourist, CFO, COO, and general busybody is the brains behind the business. But when not at the salon Roger loves nothing more than stopping across the road and enjoying a chilled Sake paired with some delicious sashimi in his favorite Japanese restaurant, Toko… A far cry from the days he was spotted sporting a Mohican out in Surry Hills (but we’re not supposed to know that!).
When head colour technician Rachel isn’t colouring the heads of Sydney’s residents you might spot her at her favourite Surry Hills eatery Longrain, or down the front at a Gramatik’s gig. When she’s taking a break from her busy work calendar (as Rachel is an International Redken Colour Artist). Rachel loves to relax by reading her favourite fashion blogs and admiring the style of her favourite fashionista, Olivia Palermo.
Senior stylist and colourist Brenna Paterson is Muse’s resident Kiwi and skate board Princess who has already achieved the accolade of Goldwell Colour Zoom’s Top 10 in Australia and New Zealand. Yes! Brenna adores working on fashion runway shows has a passion for working on photo shoots, which deliver a strong, individual signature to her work within the salon.
A bright future beckons our big hearted Musette who loves her dog as much as her career.
Since leaving Finland in 2010, Timka has flourished as a hairstylist, working in renowned hair salons in the United States and Australia, and backstage in fashion shows, including New York Fashion Week and Sydney Fashion week. Timka has also styled hair for A-list celebrities at the Grammy’s and contestants on Channel 9’s talent show, The Voice. Timka is an energetic, hard-working individual, who looks for inspiration in and out of the salon. When she’s not behind the chair, she’s running through Sydney streets, observing street styles to stay up on the latest trends, and feels inspired by nature and urban environment.
Coordinator, counsellor and human vault… No one has more strings to their bow than the Muse salon lynchpin, Andrew. With his Muses cited as Edward Scissorhands and Robert Smith of The Cure… it’s no wonder that working in a hairdressing salon seems to have been his calling! He sculpts a mean Brow too.
Leakana has made the move from our front desk, to the salon floor, as our new superstar Apprentice. She loves meeting all of our clients and when she gets to witness a big transformation, you’ll find her buzzing around the salon all day. We can’t wait to see Leakana transfer the new skills she learns this year and watch her fly.
John, the best coffee maker in the biz and 2nd year apprentice, has made the move from sunny Brisvegas to the big smoke to join Team Muse. He’s a passionate young hairdresser who can confidently say he’s never had a bad hair day. Quite the feat! Loving his new local village of Surry Hills, when John’s not in the salon, you can spot him scouting out the next best burgers off Crown St. We know there’s a few to find!
