That strives to reconnect and restore
The self-dignity and acceptance of homeless people
By providing services and support

Murphy Gozzard Apprentices Take To The Stage

On the evening of the 14th July
The Murphy Gozzard flag flew proudly high
With 3 apprentices from our Paddington Hair Salon
Representing our hair community with Wild Life Education.

The sell out event was a collaborative affair
With four professional salons presenting their creativity and flair
Together delivering a night of unique experimentation
A casual evening of hair trend presentation.

Raynee, Eliza and Jackie too
We are oh-so proud of all three of you
You demonstrated onstage presence well beyond your years
And captivated your audience of hairdressing peers.

With your intricate hairstyles, you showed braiding dedication
And together on stage, you delivered an outstanding presentation.
We are so grateful that you are part of our crew
So congratulations and thank you for everything you do

And to Wild Life Hair, our inspirational host
We extend our gratitude and would like to make a toast
As hairdressing colleagues and dear friends too
Our industry wouldn't be the same without you.



Great Hair. Great Cause. And You Are Invited!

On Sunday 27th July, we are inviting you to join the Murphy Gozzard Hair Community in our fight to end slavery with the annual Style for Life Day, in association with HAGAR and ELEVEN Australia.

Now in its second year, the national Style for Life event will see Murphy Gozzard open its salon doors on a Sunday to snip and style as many customers as it can sit in its chairs, with ALL proceeds from the day donated to not-for profit organisation, Hagar.

Hagar is an international charity that works to restore the lives of women and children who have survived severe human rights abuse including rape, pedophilia and modern slavery. With housing and education centres in Cambodia, Afghanistan and Vietnam, Hagar provides specialist trauma counseling, intensive education programs and career training opportunities for people who would otherwise have had no chance of a future.

By booking your next hair appointment at Murphy Gozzard on Sunday 27th July, you will be making a difference to the lives of people in need by supporting the funding, training and economic empowerment of vulnerable women and young people affected by human rights abuse.

Last year, the 12 participating salons involved in Style for Life Day raised a combined total of $21,000 for Hagar, a figure that supported over 40 survivors through the esteemed Hagar-lead Career Pathways program in Cambodia, which includes intensive work readiness training, ‘on the job’ vocational training in the hairdressing industry, employment placement and two years of follow up case management.

Appointments are still available at Murphy Gozzard hair salon in Paddington for Style for Life Day, so call the salon now on (02) 9360 2189 to be part of this extra special day.

For those of you unable to join the Murphy Gozzard team on Style for Life Day, we will be announcing shortly additional ways in which you can help support this cause, so watch this space!



Hairdressing For The Homeless

With a genuine commitment to make a difference not only to the lives of our much-loved clients, but also to the lives of the often forgotten and misunderstood communities around us, we are very excited to announce our newly established collaboration with Sydney Homeless Connect, a non-for-profit volunteer organisation whose primary goal is to connect hundreds of volunteers and service providers with thousands of homeless people here in NSW.

This long-term partnership will kick off at the annual Sydney Homeless Connect event on Tuesday 3rd of June, at Sydney Town Hall, where members of the Murphy Gozzard team will be assisting in the provision of hairdressing services for up to 3,500 homeless attendees.

We look forward to sharing more information with you regarding our involvement with Sydney Homeless Connect soon. In the meantime, for further details on Sydney Homeless Connect, please visit www.sydneyhomelessconnect.com



New Wardrobe, New Hue

With the cooler weather and shorter days, 

Come wardrobe makeovers and new hair shades.

So blondes, brunettes and red heads too,

We invite you to experiment with a beautiful new hue.


From sweet caramels and silvery ash blondes,

To icy-toned brunettes and striking rose golds,

This season’s new palettes are second to none,

So come play with hair colour and remain bang on trend.




Hair Shine Time

Hair Shine Time

With autumn now upon us,
Your locks are crying out for care,
All that sun, sea and styling,
Plays havoc with your hair.

But fear not, for there is a solution,
To regaining that sought after shine,
Regardless of your hair type,
Colour, length or style.

The advice from Murphy Gozzard,
Paddington's award-winning hair salon,
Is to indulge your hair with a treatment,
And don't just stop at one.

We pamper our skin with facials,
And each have our daily routines,
To cleanse, tone and moisturise,
Applying tonics, potions and creams.

Your hair needs the same attention,
It craves nutrients to look healthy and shine,
So treat yourself to a hair masque,
For results in next to no time.

So when you are next in to see us,
Or passing by the salon,
Be sure to pick up a product,
The shine competition is on!

Whatever the creation you have in mind,
Come celebrate colour for a moment in time.

Celebrating our community and name!

Smiling faces within a hidden oasis.

Classical symphonic interpretations of popular music.

Intimate moments captured on lens.

Glasses raised to close family and friends.

Fig crostini with truffle honey and champagne.

Together celebrating our community and name.

Thank you to everyone who has supported our journey. We could not have done it without you xx
