WELCOME TO THE KD HAIR FAMILY ... LETS TALK ABOUT OUR STORY & FAMILY SO FAR..
kd hair was established in late 2014 and is rapidly becoming one of the Penrith area’s most sought after and recognised hair studios (if we do say so ourselves).
kd hair was initially established as a mobile hairdressing service, followed by a home based business. Within a month, we outgrew our home premises which resulted in our relocation to the new studio premises in Castlereagh Street, Penrith. After just 4 months in this space, the studio was expanded into a space 3 times its original size, reopening its doors in June 2015 with a bigger and better salon experience exclusively designed by Kaydee (the Salon Owner) herself.. This all happened in less than 6 months of opening!
The kd hair salon is a little ‘hidden gem’ providing a highly recommended and requested hairdressing service. We pride ourselves on being recognised for our flawless and up to date colour techniques as well as our highly demanded styling services whilst continuing our excellent customer service and creating a salon atmosphere that is fun, uplifting and enjoyable (and REAL).
kd hair provides a unique salon experience, where you can relax knowing your hair is in the hands of one of the industries fastest growing hair experts.
In late 2015, kd hair was selected as a finalist for the local business awards in the "New Business" Category and was featured as a winner of a Small Biz Grant for new businesses which enabled us to make the transition to digital in 2016.
In February 2016, kd hair welcomed our first ever full time stylist Nikki to the team, who has over 10 years experience in the industry and an abundance of knowledge and passion for hair! We then welcomed our second stylist Georgia who we have just fallen in love with! Kaydee, Nikki and Georgia compliment each other and their hairdressing skills perfectly, which creates an incomparable service and hairdressing team.
If your hair is in need of a little tender loving care, contact us today and become a member of our kd hair family.
MEET OUR TEAM
KAYDEE GOSPER - OWNER - AKA BOSS LADY
Kaydee completed her 4 year hairdressing apprenticeship whilst working at The Groomsmen Hair Studio in Penrith Westfields where she began building her loyal client base for over six years. She studied at Kingswood TAFE and graduated with credits and distinctions in all hairdressing fields and subjects which is a true testament to her talent.
She then completed a Certificate III in Micro Business Operations to learn the ropes of becoming a successful business woman as well as undertaking various hair styling workshops with a number of industry professionals including celebrity stylist Natalie Ann.
Kaydee is a perfectionist which is mirrored in the high quality and flawless work she produces. She is recognised for her soft, textured looks and natural, sun kissed balayage, plus the perfect blonde.
Outside of kd hair, Kaydee loves travelling, loves her family and fiance and is obsessed with her dogs PUG & PABLO.
She has a very thoughtful, caring, loving, calm and fun nature, which is portrayed in her relaxed, easy going and ‘real’ salon atmosphere. Plus, her employees say she's a pretty cool boss too.
NIKKI KEARNS - SENIOR STYLIST - AKA MERLOT
Nikki joined the kd hair team in early 2016 and we have loved her ever since.
She has been a hairdresser for over 10 years, not including her spell as child hairdresser (her Nan was her only client and she DID NOT BLOWDRY LIKE SHE CAN NOW).
Her favourite thing to do as a hairdresser is colouring, and she also specialises in haircuts (men and women) and does a perfect blow dry every time.
She has a bubbly, outgoing and friendly personality which makes Nikki the perfect addition to the kd hair Studio.
Outside of the studio, you'll find Nikki is even more outgoing and enjoys a glass of Merlot on a weekend.
GEORGIA MITCHELL - STYLIST - AKA GORGEOUS
Georgia is the newest member of the kd hair team, joining us in late 2017.
Her profile is coming soon, we just keep forgetting to write it, but trust us, you'll love her!
EMMA GOSPER - BIZ MANAGER & MAKEUP ARTIST - AKA KAYDEES SISTER
Emma is our behind the scenes 'half' team member who takes care of all the nitty gritty of kd hair!
She doesn't contribute to any of our awesome hair (although she always suggests she can) but she does run the business end of things around here.
She's also our resident makeup artist (AKA 'MUA') on Saturday's so you'll probably only see her in the salon on weekends (sometimes picking up after us and washing our colour bowls) but she's always in the background doing things like keeping our books and developing this awesome website.
Outside of work, you'll see her doing more work, and lounging with her pups at home whilst she works. & eats. & works.
WANNA WORK WITH US?
We don't blame you...
We'll be honest, we aren't looking for anyone right this minute, but, send your resume and portfolio of your work (especially blondes + styling) to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch if we think you might be a good fit for our kd hair fam.
