Studio Ash Hair is owned and operated by Philip Lagoinha and Tracy Dunne. After extensive experience hairdressing and managing salons in Brisbane, London and Ireland, Phillip and Tracy saw an opportunity to bring their expertise and creativity to the inner-city suburbs of Brisbane and opened Studio Ash Hair in 2008.
Between them they share years of experience in Hairdressing having worked as artistic directors and salon coordinators. Phillip also worked for eight years as a hairdressing educator.
They each specialise in all aspects of hairdressing including; creative cutting and colouring techniques, bridal styling, photo shoots, great lengths hair extensions and most importantly client consultation to create exactly the look and style that a client desires.
Client satisfaction is paramount at Studio Ash Hair. Consultations are in-depth and personal to each client’s lifestyle and preferences are taken into account. Studio Ash Hair offers an enjoyable, relaxed and professional environment for staff and clients alike.
Studio Ash Hair is conveniently located in the inner-city Brisbane suburb of Teneriffe, between New Farm and Fortitude Valley. Free undercover parking is also available.
One of my specialties is working with Great Lengths hair extensions. I have worked with them for more than ten years, and I believe that they are the best extensions to lengthen, thicken, and add colour or a feature to an existing style. My creative side, working with an enthusiastic team, and helping my clients with their hair needs is what really motivates me. Working on photo shoots and fashion parades for the past 25 years. Also teaching at Brisbane School of Hairdressing, opening a salon, and most of all, the feeling a stylist gets from happy clients are my greatest achievements. I get inspired from little things everyday, whether it be a magazine, something on TV, or from simply people watching at a local café.
I have been most fortunate to spend my career travelling and working with women in the art of hair sculpture. I am frequently asked “what’s in this season?” to which I invariably reply using the words of one very topical and inspiring woman, Hilary Clinton … “women are always being tested but ultimately each of us has to define who we are individually and then do our very best to grow into it”.
I feel most women reinvent themselves on a day to day and even an hour to hour basis. I like to offer advice to my clients on all trends be they current, classic or in vogue but most importantly individual needs are listened to and between us we arrive at your unique look specifically tailored to you.
