Meet the team
The team at Anthony Nitson Hair are young and vibrant individuals who are driven and passionate about what they do. Each member of the team pride themselves on competition work which have produced outstanding results. As participants in the L’Oreal Colour Trophy our team of dedicated stylists are able to achieve some of the fantastic looks that have deserved the title of “highly commended”. All images within the salon have been created by the team to display the high calibre of work by our team.
Our on-going training continues outside the salon with our team participating as session stylists of major fashion events such as L’Oreal Fashion Week and also the L’Oreal Education for Life Program which is globally recognised.
The team at Anthony Nitson Hair believes that hairdressing requires total dedication, varied skills and commitment. As fashion evolves, so does the team with a preference to create rather than to copy. Anthony Nitson Hair believes continued education is the key to delivering outstanding skills and service to their clients.
Chatting with the team, the question was raised ‘If you weren’t a hairdresser, what would you be?’. We also asked, ‘In a constantly evolving industry, how do you stay in front?’, this is what they had to say…
I love design. I would be an Architect. Continuous education keeps you at the forefront. Never stop learning. Interpret the latest in trends via the media and apply your own flair.
I would have been a beautician because there is no better feeling than getting pampered and making someone look and feel glamorous which is very rewarding. You can always find the latest trends on celebrities in magazines. Specific Hair Magazines are also a great inspiration.
Having already dabbled in Professional Ballroom Dancing, if I wasn’t hairdressing, that is where I would be. As a junior here, I follow the lead of Seniors in the Salon as well as keeping up with the latest celebrity hair and trends. ‘The Journal’ magazine is a great inspiration.
I would be a Firefighter! Foxtel is great to follow the latest trends with shows like Fashion Police and Tabitha’s Salon Handover. ‘The Journal’ magazine is a great resource and competition work is an excellent way to stay inspired.
It would be great to work with kids and be a Paediatrician. Regular in-salon and product training is a great way to stay in front as well as getting along to as many Hair Expo’s as I can.
I would love to be a Fiction Author/Illustrator. Social media plays a big part in remaining in the industry’s forefront, combined with ongoing training, hair expos and events. America is a big inspiration in pushing boundaries so I also follow leading American stylists.

Working with people is a real passion for me so being a Youth Worker or working with the elderly would be great. Keeping up with fashion trends across various media keeps me at the forefront as well as experimenting with new techniques and observing and learning from colleagues.
Property Development is where I would like to be if I wasn’t hairdressing. Following Hair and celebrity Instagram users is a great way to stay in front as well as regularly referencing Culture, Vogue and Elle magazines. Our in-salon courses and training are an excellent way to learn and implement new styles and techniques.
I would be a personal stylist to the stars. Instagram is where I get most of my inspiration to say at the industry’s forefront. I follow leading Sydney and Melbourne fashion bloggers as well as some Australian and International celebrities.
I would be a PE Teacher. This was something I looked at but Hairdressing won me over! I am very intuitive and love experimenting (lucky my clients do too). I get a lot of inspiration from the up and coming talent in salon as well as across a wide variety of media.
I would be a Fashion Designer. Following international celebrity hairdressers on Instagram keeps me at the industry’s forefront. I subscribe to ‘Culture’ magazine and I love hairdressing competitions to challenge skills and expertise.
