Hairdressing and make up Services
We are passionate & creative hairdressers using quality products ensuring that you’ll love our hairdressing services. We operate on a mobile & freelance basis which is how you get great hair at affordable prices. We are as flexible as you need – we can come to you, or you can come us!
What is a Mobile Hairdresser?
On-the-go people might not have time to visit a hair salon, so they get the hairdresser to come to them. Some elderly, ill or handicapped people can’t get out to hair salons every four to six weeks for a trim and style, so mobile hairdressing provides another alternative. Hairdressing services delivered to the home are also favoured by many families that prefer to have the whole family’s hair needs handled at the same time. Some mobile hairdressers have portable basins for home colouring, however, mostly mobile hairdressing is for cuts and styling.
What is a freelance hairdresser?
A freelance hairdresser could refer to a mobile hairdresser, but also includes, self-employed hairdressers with home salons; that rent chairs in existing salons; or work for celebrities; on projects, shows, shoots and for other private events and businesses.
Ergonomic Hairdresser Training
We are committed to helping hairdressers train and retrain with ergonomics in mind. Like any trade, there are long term risks associated with dangers in the workplace. These can be from chemicals, slips and falls as well as debilitating disorders such as occupational overuse syndromes including arthritis and RSI. We provide training that protects business from sick days due to injury, helps keep hairdressers safe and doing what they’re passionate about for longer, and provides improved overall performance.

As a young hairdresser, I
- worked till I dropped
- strived to learn more and
Pushing myself so that I could:
- deliver better service to my clients and
- higher profits to my employers.
Now I have a long list of achievements, and a great reputation. The cost of this pursuit is aches and pains in every bone and muscle in my body. I want to share all that I have learned and help where I can .
I spent many a day dreaming up a list of tools that could make me even better at what I do, but I never had the time or the will to realise them. After 15 years of waiting for someone else to solve my problems and frightened that my career and passion for hair would be forced into early retirement like so many others, led me to start CJE Australia P/L (“CJE”) in 2014 – a joint venture bringing diverse talents together to deliver ergonomic tools & solutions in contradiction of perceptions of lower productivity, quality and service as well as decreasing profitability. My products will actually allow more creativity, improve productivity and help Salons earn more – all whilst reducing workplace Injury.
