in the early days of Hamish’s career, he began his apprenticeship as a barber, refining men’s cutting and clippering techniques, learning the importance of attention to detail.
searching for more scope, Hamish sought to develop his career and moved into the salon world, where he worked in Australia’s leading salons to complete his apprenticeship.
after winning the coveted Australian Apprentice of the Year award, Hamish felt the natural next step was to build an international standard.
he then moved to London where he re-trained as a specialist haircutter in Mayfair’s leading salon Mahogany Hairdressing.
during his time in London, Hamish had the privilege to develop a strong reputation as a haircutter and presented seminars at London Salon International and Royal Albert Hall.
being one of the only Mahogany trained Australians, Hamish was approached to take the brand to Sydney, where he opened the very first Mahogany in Potts Point. he quickly developed a strong reputation for his focus on real customer service, attracted a team of highly-skilled talents where they had collectively changed the face and reputation of the industry in Australia.
Hamish then became Hair Director for talents for the MTV Music Awards, Australian Idol, X-factor and The Voice and had the honour to tend to the tresses of celebrity talents across the music industry.
