More about Theo and his Services.

Hi, my name is Theo welcome to my page, it's nice to meet you.

I've been in the beauty industry for over 30 years and love, love, love what I do, some of the things I do really well;

  • Hair Color, as a master colorist color change, color correction and highlights are some of my favorite services to provide, my main objective is making sure the color you seek fits your color pallet, lifestyle, and color style.
  • Hair Cutting and Styling, hair sculpting is natural for me creating the right look for your facial shape so when you're at home doing your own hair, you too can achieve the salon look without breaking a sweat.
  • Hair Smoothing, working with many different types of hair mastering the right application, technique achieving a smooth result that can last up to five months.

We are a proud to be part of of the Keune Professional Team

My Services and Prices

Theo was fabulous! I needed a whole new style cut after trying to grow my hair out, and the guy came up with the goods. I felt really at ease and his ideas and his experience was evident right from the get go. I will be back and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great stylist
Happy Customer
Just wanted to pass on my thanks, I had a fantastic experience in your salon today. I haven't had my hair done in over 18 months, I was booked elsewhere yesterday and had to cancel because my daughter was sick. I was devastated, after so long, I was really looking forward to getting my hair done! When you fit me in today for a late appointment I was so happy and I'm even happier with the end result. Theo has done a fantastic job, he didn't cut any corners or rush the appointment, despite it being late, and I would go so far to say it's the best cut and colour I've ever had. Thanks a million

My Story

A long, long, time ago over 30 years also known as the beginning. 

A local boy, with a big dream, a desire for design, and an attitude that failure is not an option, raised in Forster / Tuncurry the son of Mr. and Mrs. Perry owners of Perry's Fruit Shop with whom developed a strong work ethic, a love of woodwork and what it means to do a hard days work.

One day sitting waiting for my turn to get my hair cut at "Cut Lose" barbers, still there today, the owner operates were in a discussion about bringing on an apprentice. Listening carefully I blurted "What about me?"

My criteria for that decision:

They were cool and they surfed.

I got the job, my dad said no, "You have to graduate high school first"

So I went to the library and look up everything there was to know about the hairdressing industry and set out to learn it all.

"If they can do it so can I"
