DEMI • Co-Owner
Demi started her hairdressing journey in Geelong back in 2009 and then spread her wings and spent 6 years working in Sydney and Melbourne before recently returning home to join forces with her sister, Phoenix. For the past 18 months she spent time in an Education and Sales Manager role for Victoria for leading industry driven brands including Oribe, R+Co, IGK, Smith & Cult and Pulp Riot working with 60 salons as well as David Jones and Sephora stores.
Demi loves healthy vibrant hair and gets excited over creating huge transformations for her clients. She was trained in creative colour under Australian Colourist of the Year, Stevie English and has had ongoing cutting training and mentoring from Australian Educator of the Year, Dario Cotroneo and Berwick Education. Stay tuned to what is soon to come at @demi.kindredhearts
PHOENIX • Co-Owner
Phoenix’s career began 7 years ago and she has since gained a loyal clientele who love her because of her attention to detail and personal touch. She doesn’t promote a set style of work, but aims to tailor each and every appointment to the client’s requests, (whether that be anything from a soft naturally enhanced look, to special effects and/or drag!)
Under her belt Phoenix holds a Certificate 4 in Makeup as well as a Diploma in Specialised Makeup Services. Prior to the commencement of her makeup career she spent 7 years in the pharmaceutical industry, building knowledge of health and skincare. During her time at M.A.C Cosmetics over a 3 year period she was certified to an advanced level and received ongoing training from Australia’s leading senior artists. She held a product specialist position within her team where she was able to mentor both colleagues and clientele.
In recent years she has ventured out into freelance work. This has given her the opportunity to incorporate more bridal work into her schedule, as well as editorial and photographic work which she has a passion for. Her forte is glamour makeups and personalised looks, and admits she will always jump at the opportunity for some colour play!
