    Client Transformations

    This month has been all about melting in our salon and channelling.  Ryan has just joined AB Pro Lab and has had 17years experience in the hair industry.

I love that idea for bridesmaids because I always say its best to do what suits them rather than all looking the same and it doesn’t frame or suit someone’s face which then might look bad in photos. I also had the pleasure of looking after Sam Neil for The Weekly at the Abc. What a lovely man.
