At the Murphy Gozzard Hair Community, our commitment is to creating the ultimate hairdressing experience for our clients whilst providing a nurturing, fun and rewarding environment for our hair artisans.
For all great artisans, the traditions and skills that have been passed on from generation to generation are the backbone to their craft, each generation refining the skills and with new technologies, advancing the qualities and outcomes, yet staying true to the fundamental skills taught by one generation to another.
This concept is intrinsically woven into the DNA of the Murphy Gozzard Hair Community – a team of lifestyle artisans who continually explore the boundaries of their craft to create individual and tailored hairdressing, combining the life skills that have been passed down from generation to generation with the technical skills that have culminated through thousands of hours of training and development to deliver the highest quality hairdressing in a welcoming and auspicious environment.
The talented community of Paddington hairdressers at Murphy Gozzard are led by creative directors Brett Albury and Brett McKinnon, who are renowned for accolades achieved under the Suki Hairdressing banner including 2008 Hair Expo Salon Team of the Year Winner as well as 2012 and 2010 Hair Expo Salon Team of the Year Finalists and 2009 Hair Expo Colourist Of The Year Hair Judges Recognition. Most recently, Brett Albury was named NSW Hairdresser of the Year 2015 Finalist in the Australian Hair Fashion Awards, an achievement that is testament to his creative vision and technical prowess. Brett and Brett's extensive photographic work has also appeared in publications including Culture, The Journal, InStyle, Vogue, Marie Claire, Grazia, Oyster, Madison, Russh, Harpers Bazaar, Sunday Life and GQ.
