Meet the Team
For the past decade, Natalie has successfully managed and grown Wink! to the amazing hair destination, it is today. We’ve always stood out by focusing on ways to improve our clients’ lives through better service, innovation and value.
While Natalie credits her dynamic team for the amazing work walking out the doors, she believes a successful salon needs to be offering much more. “Clients are now so much savvier when it comes to making decisions about their hair. They’re happy to pay good money but the service and atmosphere are just as important as the hair. This requires a competent manager to oversee staff, ensure customer satisfaction and to drive the creative direction of the business”. And it’s a role Natalie was seemingly born to play!

His strong technical abilities & interpersonal skills make him one of the best in the industry, and it is this reputation that has cemented Wink! as one of the best salons in Sydney.

Anna fell in love with hairdressing 20 years ago, cultivating her amazing technical skills under the guidance of one of Singapore’s most prestigious and iconic salons. From here, Anna’s career took her to the UK, Stockholm and Sydney, styling the tresses of television personalities and presenters, as well as magazine work.
Anna credits her success to strong fundamentals in both colouring and hair cutting, but more so the customisation of her work. It doesn’t matter how amazing my colour or haircut is if it’s not on the right person. “Understanding the importance of aesthetics ensures that my work will complement my client’s facial features, face shape, bone structure, complexion, and their personal style”. Having relocated to Sydney permanently in 2007, Anna has bought her focus back into the salon, channelling her passion and knowledge of all things hair to her lucky clientele.
