Broni – Hair Dresser/Owner
Broni has been working with hair since she was a child. From the innocent childhood days of blowdrying her little brother’s hair in the family home to now a successful entrepreneur, owner and manager of the amazing Chameleon New Age Salon.
Broni has owned and managed Salons in Broadbeach/Surfers Paradise for the past 10 years, albeit at a much smaller scale than the Sanctuary she has now created in the heart of Surfers Paradise. Her training was under an Internationally renowned and awarded stylist. Broni prides herself in providing exemplary customer care with her VIP customers being with her for the past 10 years from her humble beginnings in Florida Gardens.
Broni was recently successfully nominated as the Luminart Colour Technician for Queensland. Travelling to Adelaide for further training and upon her return running training in other Salons on the Gold Coast. This placement earned from her substantial contribution to hair dressing, attention to detail, customer care and her ability to provide her customers exactly what they are looking for be it a cut and colour to the extreme end of brights and mermaid colours she is so well known for.
Broni started selling crystals two years ago in the shop in the Arcade. Six months later she imported a tonne of Salt Lamps, selling them all within a few months.
For many the roller coaster journey Broni has enjoyed would be incomprehensible. She believes that there are higher forces at work guiding her to do what she is doing including the journey into the new Sanctuary. In the Salon we all know that her father, who passed in April 2015 has been a significant Guiding Force from the very beginning with the new Salon.
Broni has been on a mission for the past two years and this gained momentum in recent months. She has an uncanny knack of knowing what is going on under the surface in any situation, compassion for humanity, absolute passion for her work and people generally.
Broni has developed a strong network in and around the Gold Coast and is well known for her soulful eyes, beautiful smile, integrity, kindness, compassion and friendly nature.
The energy of Chameleon New Age Salon is a testament to who Broni is – a hair appointment with Broni is never just about the hair it is a holistic experience and exciting adventure into creativity.
