After 27 years in business, education icon Matters in Grey continues to jump from strength to strength, now renovating their renowned space and ushering in a new and dynamic phase for the business. The training organisation is built on a legacy of over six decades and three generations in hairdressing, with Anthony Gray now at the helm, education at the forefront and the renovation speaking to both its longevity and innovation in the industry.
“It was certainly time for a new look,” Anthony said about the renovation. “We undertook a complete renovation of the college that included meeting rooms, breakout and study spaces feeding two large training studios that support the barber and hairdresser education. The biggest wow factor is the new state-of-the-art salon and barber shop, with large street frontage to attract a vibrant and contemporary client base for the emerging apprentices and students at MIG to work with.”
“The team love coming to work every day in our new stylish, contemporary space that inspires our students, complete with the latest technology to support flexible learning,” he continued. “We also offer MIG as a community space that can be used by suppliers, educators and salons to hold events.”
The team hosted 100 guests including friends, VIPs and clients, with salon owners, suppliers, industry partners and even government representatives on the list for food and champagne to celebrate the new premises. Members of salons and brands such as Bach Hair, Ella & Jade, Horse Meat Disco, Indigo Cut and Colour, Jimmy Rods, Urban Chic, as well as suppliers Goldwell, Schwarzkopf Professional, Vita 5 and Sustainable Salons, were all there to support the brand.
“Our philosophy has always centred around the values of passion, commitment and ethics and we work had to create long-term relationships with our salon clients,” Anthony shared. “MIG Training is proud to deliver tailored apprenticeship training to 320 salons across Queensland and Tasmania. We currently train 490 apprentices and students and proudly graduated 110 hairdressers and barbers in the last 12 months. Many of our salon owners were trained by us as apprentices and now send their own staff to MIG for education. The college remodelling is just the next step in building an industry space and education provider the industry can be proud of.”
Matters in Grey is fuelled by a family legacy, a passion for the industry and devotion to philanthropy, innovation and education, which has catapulted them through almost three decades of successful business practices, and has opened the door for several decades more. Here’s to more success for the big-hearted business in the future.
