Chumba's Heart and Karma
Mr Amazing, Chris Gratton is a living legend in Melbourne Hairdressing and former Colour Trophy winner.
Simply Incredible in all skill sets, our 'Soulman' has zero weaknesses and unmatched strengths.
Really is absolutely our Best of the Best of the Best - he's ranked #1 Stylist in our company.
If you want the all-in-one Freaky Great Stylist just choose Chris.
Has a particular knack for keeping the 'King' sane (and alive too) by talking hyper surrealist concepts with him - so Guardian Angel duties are his for life.
We all love him without reservation and you will too if he gets his magic hands on you.
He shares his Powers a wee bit these days as he hits the road educating and inspiring our Industry with QueenB for BK Education.
He can also be found Earthing himself in his country retreat of Warragul.
The Pommy Puppet Master
Who pulls the strings that makes Chumba work? Debbie. Who kicks ass when ass kicking is required? Debbie. Who works more hours and harder than any other? Debbie. Who pounds the pavement with the Queen of Fun runs - Debbie. What the?
Interviewed and recruited over Facebook, this Super-Freak English import was brought to Australia with her entire family by the Keeley's to bring law and order to Chumba - and she did. Regarded by all of us without exception as the Most Valuable Player in the entire company.
Our Deb combines a formidable set of Hair skills with a penchant for Management second to none.
A 'Chumba for Lifer', the whole Chumba World revolves around 'the Deb'.
Has the Power and knows how to use it too.
Original Chumba 'Pure Blood'
At the beginning of time there were just a few of us. And the Keeley's obsessed over their small brood of soon to be super stylists - from that came the 'Pure Bloods' the group that were Chumba's first born. Rhi Plew was born to hairdressing at that time.
To say we're proud of the career this amazing lady has carved out is an understatement.
A leader from the start 'the Boss' quickly asserted herself and became a Salon Manager a long long time ago - and she still kicks the odd ass just for fun.
This walking history of Chumba possesses all of the skill and qualities that you'd expect from a hand trained 'Chumbatarian' - high craft, high creative and exceptional customer service skills.
Without a doubt one of our finest ever - you get the picture.
