Salon Director and Owner
For over three decades Kym has immersed herself in her craft. She loves the way hairdressing is always evolving, changing and how trends come back again. Her passion is cutting and she has won several trophies in cutting and colouring competitions. She strives to stay relevant with all aspects of hairdressing, immersing herself in MBE, Hair Expo and is an active member of HABA.
Her greatest passion is the development of younger technicians, educating and training them in all aspects of hairdressing. Over the years Kym has helped many young apprentices to launch their careers as outstanding hairstylists.
Out of the salon, Kym is a keen hockey player with the Exes Hockey Club taking the field as a halfback. She’s also partial to a spot of glamping and can be found all across the South West, but her favourite spot is a secret not far from Augusta.
Since taking over Soho for Hair in 2009 she has loved the many friendships and relationships she has built with her clients and team.
Education: Goldwell Master Colourist
Jessie’s year 3 school report clearly defined her future career path with the comment ” Jessie needs to focus more on her school work than doing her friend’s hair”. Her passion for creativity, however, found other outlets in floristry and fashion design before returning to hairdressing at age 19, which she found by far the most fulfilling.
Jessie completed her apprenticeship training with the South West Institute of Technology and qualified as a senior stylist. In 2016 she joined the team at Soho for Hair, where she has had the opportunity to fulfil a dream working behind the scenes at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Sydney with labels like Camilla and Carla Zampatti styling models for the runway. She has also had the opportunity to participate in Goldwell Color Zoom competition in 2018 where she achieved a Top 10 finish in Australia and New Zealand. As the manager, she is also involved with the MBE program.
Out of the salon, she is quite the fitness enthusiast and adventurer. Sharing her weekends with her many furbabies and family and friends. She’s also a keen connoisseur of all types of food.
She is always seeking ways to articulate her creative vision through styling and colour and loves the feeling when making someone’s day saying “it’s the best thrill I can get”.

Starting her hairdressing career at age 6, Hayley was very disappointed to learn that Bratz dolls hair doesn’t grow back when you cut it. After finishing school Hayley completed a pre-apprenticeship with Southwest Institute of Technology, before commencing her apprenticeship with Soho for Hair and through Taylor Weir International School of Hairdressing and says “I have received the best training in Bunbury here at Soho with Kym”.
She has completed numerous cutting and colouring courses with Goldwell and well known national and internationally hairdressers. She looks forward each year to Hair Expo, which is Australia’s premier hairdressing event.
Her passion for hairdressing is in colour and loves the way it comes to life on her client’s hair.
Outside of the salon she enjoys the weekends, spending quality time at the beach with her partner and Nala (her blue heeler furbaby). She also enjoys good times with her friends and a good bottle of wine and cheese platter (although Nala misses out on the wine).

My passion for hairdressing is to create my client’s styles as they desire. Making my clients happy with their hair and feel great about themselves is very rewarding. I owned my own salon for 11 years and understand the importance of education and bettering our skills. On weekends I like to do Pilates, yoga and meditation. I love bike riding and enjoying my friends. I also love a glass of bubbles and hanging out with my family. My family is very special to me.

Styling gives me the opportunity to express and use my creative side. Being able to showcase my creative flare with clients is definitely one of my favourite aspects of being in this industry. On weekends I like to chill out, surround myself with friends and family and enjoy making memories. There’s never a weekend where going out to eat isn’t a thing.

My passion in hairdressing is braiding and hair-ups. Although my passion for hair came from my obsession with all thing’s beauty! I completed my diploma of beauty therapy in 2015 and have been hooked since. I enjoy makeup due to the way it makes people feel transformed. An elegant hair-up or a fun braid paired with a beautifully painted face is all a girl needs to change things up. On weekends I enjoy playing sport and adventuring with family and friends and making quality moments.
