From an early interest in make-up and skincare as a teen, to owner of a holistic hair and beauty salon, my journey to bring Bodhi and Rose into fruition has been challenging, yet endlessly rewarding.
My interest in this field was sparked when my mother became a skincare and make-up consultant, I enjoyed being her ‘assistant’ with demonstrations and testing sample products. Little did I know this experience would be a catalyst for an amazing journey ahead!
In the following years I enrolled at an Adelaide college, becoming a qualified beauty therapist, and completing my hairdressing apprenticeship at an Adelaide Hills salon in 2009. In 2013, my love for the country saw a move back to the family farm in Galga, where my I continued my passion by creating a beautiful and nurturing, home based salon.
It was at this time, when I experienced some health issues and what felt like endless tests with no answers, that I began working with a natural health practitioner. Their advice gave an awareness of the effects of harmful chemicals, encouraging the reduction of chemical exposure within the home and working environments.
It was during the lengthy search for more natural alternative products, that I discovered professional organic hair colours by Natulique and the seed of Bodhi and Rose was planted.
With over 13 years of experience in the hair and beauty industry, I have become a passionate advocate for the use of organic, natural hair and beauty products in my salon. The reason why, is simply for the long-term health and well-being of every client, staff member and myself.
My journey has crossed paths with many people, including cancer survivors, with sensitivities to harmful chemicals who are in need of healthy alternatives in a supporting and professional environment. Considerable time is spent researching products and their ingredients, which are then personally tested before use in Bodhi and Rose, ensuring they are of the safest and highest quality available.
Bodhi and Rose Hair and Body Boutique aspires to make all clients feel pampered and beautiful using a holistic, organic approach. If you would like to know how you can achieve healthy hair and glowing skin without the use of harsh chemicals, make your appointment at Bodhi and Rose today and experience the difference.
