Billie Jean Murphy
Owner & Creative Director
Great with: Blondes, colour correction, curls and creative cutting
Owner & Creative Director

The Fairy Godmother of colour, curls, creative colour and banter.

26 years in the industry doesn’t lie, and it only takes one session with Billie to realise that. Razor sharp like the scissors in hand, the BJH boss knows how to make her customers look stunning and feel incredible through her distinct and inimitable skills in the salon.
Born and bred in Dublin before making her way to London and now Melbourne, Billie Jean comes from humble beginnings, learning the tricks of the trade in her hometown. Cutting her teeth—and the hair of the beautiful and bougie—at the infamous Charles Worthington Salon in the UK, Billie mastered the magic of colour, cutting, styling and everything in between. 15 years later, she skipped the pond and set up a brickand-mortar salon of her own, Billie Jean Hair. Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!

Cutting with intuition and a generous splash of natural flair, it’s at Billie Jean Hair where our salon sovereign has truly been able to express her creative capabilities as a hairdresser – it’s why her customers keep coming back years after their first booking. Her ability to work miracles and magic on all hair types, makes it easy to believe Billie Jean is equipped with a wand – not scissors!

Formerly a hairdressing teacher, it’s only natural that Claire’s expertise is a cut above the rest!
