About Tara Walker:
A pioneer in the art of dry haircutting, Sydney based hairdresser and owner of Mousey Browne salon: Tara Walker boasts a plethora of experience in the realms of haircutting and styling, having honed her craft in Australia and abroad.
Setting up shop in 2016, Tara’s goal for Mousey Browne (a thriving salon in the heart of Surry Hills) was to create a welcoming space in which clients could receive specialised service in a timeframe suiting their busy schedules.
“I wanted to create a salon where people can get an awesome haircut, in a short amount of time, and then get on with their day – looking good and feeling sharp,” shares Tara of the salon’s unique format and approach.
“No shampoo, no blow-dry. Just a high-quality haircut that you know how to handle and re-create. Plus a whiskey refreshment if the mood strikes. That’s it. These are the options at Mousey Browne,” she adds.
More than just a bonus for the time-poor, dry haircutting works with the hair’s natural fall and texture, making it the perfect technique for those with curly hair and beyond. The result? A well-crafted shape that’s easy for clients to recreate.
With a packed roster of male and female clients, Tara was in perfect steed to head up her own hairdressing education, having most recently launched the ‘Mousey Browne Method’ of Dry Haircutting for individuals and salons.
About Chrissy Zemura:
A renowned hairstylist, colourist and Educator: Chrissy Zemura is the woman behind change.org’s timely petition to mandate afro and textured hairdressing education as a compulsory part of Australia’s training curriculums.
Chrissy began her career in makeup before making the natural progression into hairdressing. Noticing a lack of textured hair training in Australia, Chrissy sought additional education and experience in her home country of Zimbabwe.
With an understanding of all hair types and textures, Chrissy prioritises her clients’ confidence above all else, incorporating their respective ideas with her own artistic eye to create effortless, manageable and natural hair looks.
