YOUR EDUCATION TEAM
Acclaimed for his exceptional ability to create truly seamless, lived-in hair colour, Michael comes from humble beginnings. His journey to ‘balayage guru’ (a nickname bestowed on him by VOGUE) has spanned over a decade and includes mentorships under many of Australia’s top colourists. He has nurtured a passion for education since day one, quickly growing into roles in leadership and training both at home and around the globe. In 2015, Michael headed up the colour team at a prestigious London salon where he frequently worked with top tier UK publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, VOGUE, Elle and Marie Claire, and a high profile clientele. Deciding to return to Australia in 2017 to focus on training, Michael has worked tirelessly since to make Edwards and Co. Education into the highly-acclaimed training program it is today.
Dane’s decade-long experience in the hairdressing industry began at the age of fourteen as a “tea and tidy girl”. After leaving school in year ten, his career began in earnest with an apprenticeship at a local salon. He was then introduced to the world of session styling, assisting at MBFWA and on editorial shoots. Fast forward seven jam-packed years and Dane is now an established presence at Edwards and Co. “In the time I have been with the company I’ve learnt more than I thought possible. I’ve moved states to open the new Brisbane salon, become an educator, and worked with the best; Jaye Edwards, Michael Kelly, Sheree Knoble and Emma Chen.”
Matthew’s hairdressing career began in central QLD, sweeping floors at the age of 15. He had a rocky start to his apprenticeship but soon happened upon Oscar Oscar salons in Brisbane where he worked for 16 years. Training with some of the industry’s leading hairstylists (including Oscar Cullinan) saw him become a cutting and styling specialist. Further education from Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon Academy and Schwarzkopf helped hone his skills which were on display in his capacities as a national educator for both Aveda and Redken. In these roles he travelled around Australia presenting at shows including Get Inspired, in front of 600+ hairdressers. He has also served as hair director of a multitude of MBFWA shows for brands like Ginger and Smart and Manning Cartell.
Rob, originally from the UK, found the hair industry after high school, going onto gain his qualification and attended countless courses & seminars throughout his career. Rob’s passion lays within the mechanics of hair and the technicality behind cutting, the understanding of shape and structure of a haircut. He is all about suitability and precision cutting, whether it’s a creative cut or an everyday wearable style, it will be tailored to the individual. Rob is our Senior Men’s Stylist and is lead Men’s Educator across the EdwardsAndCo brand. Rob is keen to elevate the men’s industry and passionate about sharing his skills and understanding of men’s hair cutting.
