Brisbane Campus

I take tremendous pride in inspiring young hairdressers. In the classroom, I love creating an environment that is inclusive to everyone. I get great joy from mentoring apprentices and helping them grow into capable and confident professionals.


Rachel Holmes

Ipswich Campuses

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.

Chani Burns

Sunshine Coast Campus

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.


Tulane Degura

I have been hairdressing for over thirty years and still love the industry.
In this time i have been able to diversify my hairdressing skills to many areas in the industry and be proactive in setting different goals and achieving them from managing salons, fashion weeks, hair expos, repping and in salon training.

This lead to education for me where i can put my experience and energy into training and guiding those new to the trade which was always my ultimate goal.

I am excited to share all the little tips and tricks to my students that i have been blessed to learn and experience along the way and i cant wait to help prepare all new to this amazing industry for the workplace.
