Meet JessIE the 'Champ'

So we found her at the Cheese Cake Shop... yup we did... all we heard for the first six months was "at the Cheese Cake Shop we..." That was driving Queen Bee nuts because she hates Cheese cake lol! But we all love 'lil-Jess' so we hung in there.

Besides the endless cake stories there was a little something that made this young lady stand out very early on - those hands OMG - those hands can 'do hair'.

'Old' hairdressers know talented digits when they see them and all of the 'mature' brains-trust in the House of Chumba could see the talent just oozing from those little fingers. IF only we could just shut her up about baking cakes we'd all be just fine!

Well the little baker did snap out of desert land and has now stormed onto the Big Hair stage by:

a) ruling the roost on the Chapel St salon floor and organising the Genius Colleen

b) winning the title of the AHFA Australia Best Apprentice Hairdresser 2019

No one's mentioned Cheese Cake since btw - good riddens to that.


We sometimes use the label 'true blood' - this refers to staff that are have trained from a first year apprentice to fully qualified with us all the way. Jessica is a 'true blood - and doesn't it show!

We can't wait to see her develop even further in her career.


Get to Know



Years Hairdressing?

Hairdressing 2 years & Chumba 2 years


Complete the sentence “I want my clients to..." 

I want my clients to love their hair when they leave my chair and take away all the knowledge they need to love their hair at home.


What do you love about hairdressing?

What I love about hairdressing is the creativity and especially at chumba, no two days are the same. Every client who walks through the door is different and unique so we’re always doing something new.


Just for fun...

A: "Yellow is the colour of the sun, the colour of warmth and happiness. It’s the sand between your toes on a warm day at the beach."


Q:Whats your favourite colour skittle?

A: "FUN FACT they are all the same flavour. The fragrances are different which tricks our brain into thinking they’re different flavours. But the green ones are still the best." many doughnuts can you consume in one sittng?

A: "Probably like 6… but it depends on the doughnut."


Q: What was the last gift you gave someone?

A: "I gave my Mum all the Turkish delights out of my box of favourites. She loves them, I hate them, it’s a win-win."


Q: if you could be a super hero what would your super poers be?

A: "To physically materialise anything I can think of... like 6 doughnuts🙂"
