Summer Hair with Toni & Guy Brisbane

posted by Teagan West January 30, 2017 0 comments

A couple of weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of joining the Toni & Guy Brisbane team for a hair transformation to get my locks in the mood for summer. I think it was probably the best haircut of my life!

Cheveux Design and Espresso … in Auchenflower

I recently stumbled on a fantastic little espresso bar in Auchenflower, delighted to find it tripled as a boutique hair salon and business consulting. Run by Brisbane sisters Carla and Nadine Thurgate; Cheveux Design and Espresso is set in a gorgeously renovated Queenslander finished to perfection with recycled hard wood timber.

The sisters and business partners took design inspiration from the country background and credit the final product to local Brisbane builder Jonny Nance from JNC Constructions, who also happens to be the girls’ cousin. It is easy to see that the girls value family and are keen to support local business.

The girls already have tremendous support from the locals as well, every day of the week you can see locals lounging on the brightly coloured deck chairs enjoying their coffee and conversation. The vibrant atmosphere of the crowd a testament to the business the girls have built in only a few short months.

Nadine has worked in the hairdressing industry for 15 years, most recently in the St Lucia and Taringa area and said she has been delighted with the support she has received from clients since opening last month.

Carla, a “corporate refugee” is trying her hand at a number of ventures including   running the espresso bar and a HR consultancy while also providing coaching and inspiration to women with her business ‘Frominsideout’ . The girls also provide a meeting and workshop room for other small businesses to use on a daily basis at Cheveux Design and Espresso.

The espresso bar is stocked with Allpress coffee, who just like Nadine and Carla, pride themselves on producing exceptional coffee all the way through from their farms to your cup.

The salon uses Kevin Murphy products, which are touted as ‘skincare for hair’, using only the highest quality natural ingredients.

So whether you need a caffeine hit, a hair pick-me-up or the business advice to set your path straight the girls at Cheveux Design and Espresso have got you covered!

Creative Couple Create One Of A Kind Salon!

posted by Danielle Lewis March 5, 2013 0 comments


They say you should never work with children, animals or someone you love…. but sometimes taking that leap of faith and defying the odds pays off in a BIG WAY!

Creatives Matt Stewart and Anna Patterson are a fairytale Brisbane couple. Over the last decade Anna has built a reputation in the local hair industry second to none. Specialising in blondes, many a stylish woman has left their hair in her hands, with stunning results. Matt on the other hand, a visual artist, works predominately in the realm of marketing, branding and design but with a fine arts side line.

Together the duo dreamed up the idea for a boutique hair salon right in the heart of Brisbane, that offered the ultimate client experience.

The White Gold Boutique sets itself apart from other offerings by reviving excellence in customer service as well as providing top of the range products and services put together by some of Brisbanes most experienced salon professionals.  All of that though is mere details, the design and elegant atmosphere that envelopes the White Gold Boutique is as unique as each customer is made to feel.  It’s old-world-meets-new Parisianesque charm promotes a leisurely environment where you’d be happy to wile away hours and leaving with a hot new do is merely a bonus!

What blew me away even more than the design of the salon was that every detail had been thought-up and constructed by the couple themselves, with a helping hand from their dads. And if you have seen an episode of The Block recently you’ll understand just how large a project it must have been. Of course Anna and Matt take it in their stride and divert any attention back to the reason behind their efforts… the client experience.

The salon itself is located in the chic Brisbane area of Teneriffe close to the likes of Dello Mano and some fabulous interior shops. A perfect location for a catch up with the stylist who will soon be BFF’s with the most stylish of the Brisbane population.
