Billie Jean Murphy
Owner & Creative Director
Great with: Colour, curls, more curls, banter and creative styling
Owner & Creative Director

23 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 in Dublin, via London, and now Melbourne, Billie Jean came from humble beginnings learning the tricks of the trade in her hometown. Cutting her teeth—and the hair of the beautiful and bougy—at the infamous Charles Worthington Salon in the UK, Billie mastered the art of colour, cutting, styling and everything in between. X years later, she skipped the pond set up a brick and mortar salon of her own, Billie Jean Hair.

Cutting with intuition and a generous splash of natural flare, 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, after all.

Principal Stylist/Colourist

We only work with the best, and sometimes that means sourcing our staff from the far corners of the globe. Coming from the cool and breezy Northern Ireland, Claire has come into Australia’s salon scene red hot with over 10 years experience.

Formerly a hairdressing teacher, it’s only natural that Claire’s expertise is cut above the rest! With a progressive focus on colour, she’s an essential player to the BJH team, and to anyone who wants their balayage or colour change looking better than they ever thought it could.

Principal Stylist

Son of a gun … well, son of an award-winning hairdresser, at least. Max’s career began almost before he spoke his first words (which are rumoured to be “short back and sides”).

Born in France, trained in London and today residing in Melbourne, Max’s professional heritage means he’s across what’s trending locally and abroad. He’s our in house barber and all ‘round charmer, but he’s certainly not limited to cutting men’s. Book in with Max if you’re after a stylist with meticulous attention to detail and a unique outlook on our trade.

Services include: Ladies short hair, Styling, taper fades and impromptu French lessons.
