O&M founder Jose Bryce Smith hosted an intimate lunch at the sun-drench Totti’s in Bondi to celebrate the O&M family of women entrepreneurs. Female hairdressers travelled from across the country to raise a glass to the end of another successful year and wish each other wellness for 2020. In attendance were salon owners such as Ash Croker from The Salon by Ash Croker, Carly Elliott-Steele from Elliot Steele Hair, and Susie Dimov from Kundalini Salon.

A large topic of conversation was women in business, and moreover, the lack of them. Only 22 per cent of companies hold female CEOs. On the other hand, 70 per cent of salons are owned by women, and Jose champions this fact.

“Women are the natural multi-taskers of the world and it’s so great to see more women opening businesses. We have so much to share with each other and I love learning from these ladies. It’s no accident that they are all successful, look fabulous, manage families and enjoy life and I feel honoured that I get the chance to find out how they live,” Jose said.
