Nikki Findlay

I started out in the hairdressing industry when I was 16 years old in a small salon in Aberdeen, Scotland. After I qualified, I went to work for Toni and Guy, first in Scotland and then in St. Kilda, Melbourne. I Graduated to Style Director with Toni & Guy which opened the door to session styling where I worked on Melbourne fashion week styling hair for Gucci and other iconic fashion designers.

Chelsey Harris

For the past 18 years, I have operated my own business in Far North Queensland, CK Hair Mobile hairdressing & Makeup. I work as a colour specialist and cater to many different clients. My career highlights so far would be having the pleasure of looking after several Australian celebrities including Christine Anu.

Chani Burns

To me, nothing is more rewarding than seeing a stylist grow in their skills and knowledge and witness the love and passion they have for their work. Love what you do! I know that sounds simple and cliche but if you are passionate about what you do then success naturally flows from that. Hairdressing isn’t just a job, it is a passion.

I am excited to take you on  this journey with Demi international to include fun and education and prove you can succeed in taking your dreams anywhere even to the other side of the world

Jenny Kelly

I have had my own businesses for the last 20 years, I’m currently running my 5th salon. I started as an apprentice and I absolutely love training my apprentices, bringing out their best qualities and inspiring them to do better. I’m looking forward to bringing my passion for training in a classroom environment.

 

Tina Donaldson

I have worked with celebrities, been published in Cosmo Bride and won an International award for my work at Elizabeth Arden and had my own business focusing on brides, with a holistic approach.

I am a life-long learner. I absolutely enjoy learning new information and skills. I look forward to passing on my experience to all the students coming to train with me at Demi International.

Rachel Holmes

I began a Hairdressing and Beauty course when I was 15 years old, I ended up getting a tea and tidy job which led me into the pathway of my apprenticeship in hairdressing of over 30 years now. I’m extremely passionate about colour, I feel like if it moves it should be coloured so needless to say my little dog has had some colour experiences from me, not sure if he liked them. I’m excited about fulfilling your training needs and hope to bring a little vibrance into the classroom.

Tania Owens

While enjoying my 25+ years in the hairdressing industry as a Senior Stylist/Salon Manager, my passion has always been to inspire mentor and educate the next upcoming stylists. My experience is always evolving as I work in a busy salon, which allows me to remain current and up to date with all exciting hairdressing skills, techniques and education.
