SALON DIRECTOR/OWNER –
Teresa Gonzales: I first opened OPUS in 2005 with the idea to create a town salon with a village feel. With over 25 years of hairdressing experience, hair is definitely my passion and i strive on delivering such excellent experience for all clients. My forte is hair up and off the cuff re-styles, i love to create as i go, my best haircuts are born this way. I hope to one day own an academy so i can share my skills with the next generation of hair stylists.
SALON MANAGER –
Ashlee Kalla: I have now been part of OPUS for 11 years, where i have been trained and molded into the stylist i am today. You can usually find me foiling myself into my own little world (foiling queen) or creating sexy big bouncy blowdries for my clients. I love all aspects of hairdressing and attend many courses with the girls as possible to keep our skills up to date. I also enjoy training our apprentices and helping them build their confidence by passing on all my knowledge.
SENIOR STYLISTS –
Katie Woodhall: Having now being part of OPUS for 11 years also. Including my year out which i went travelling around Australia taking my scissors with me. I definately take my passion for hairdressing with me wherever i go, constantly looking at other peoples(often celebs) hairstyles and colours for inspiration. I LOVE working as a team and it certainly doesn’t get better than OPUS. We strive on giving our clients a warm friendly welcome and a visit they never forget.
Emma Irish: Being the newest stylist to the OPUS team, i really feel settled and welcomed into the family. Having done hair since leaving school it’s something i’ve always had a love for. Specialising in the Micro-Ring Extensions i feel i can bring something new to the salon and i’m really looking forward to meeting all clients and showing you all what i’m capable of.
Jade Ward: I am a young passionate graduate stylist for OPUS Artistic Hair Design. At just 21 years old i am a Level 3 stylist, a qualified barber and i also specialise in the Beauty-Works Tape Extensions. I really enjoy working with all of our team and since joining here i feel i have gained a lot of confidence and experience.
Carly Batty: I am the newest member to join Opus, and I am really looking forward to becoming part of the Opus family and showing them what I am capable of. I am bringing 12 years hairdressing along with my fun bubbly self. Hair has always been my passion since I was a little girl. I love foiling and short hair cuts are my favourite (where I get to be really creative!)
The thing I love the most is creating hair that makes my clients feel confident and happy, knowing they are happy makes me happy.
