Sydney’s Willomina salon and Kao Salon Division have joined forces, with the luxury salon and renowned product company forming an important partnership.

Willomina is owned by Chris and Kass Hunter and located in Woollahra, and is known as a specialist salon in both women’s and men’s styling for a clientele that includes media and influencers and is set in a raw industrial aesthetic. This salon brand will now be elevated with an offering of Goldwell colour and KMS styling products.

“We’re thrilled to have Willomina partner with Kao Salon Division. Chris Hunter has a clear vision for this salon and a great team around him. We look forward to being on the journey with Willomina as the salon continues its growth into the future,” said Justin Anderson, General Manager Kao Salon Division.

The partnership is pivotal to Willomina’s extreme creative colour focus, with Goldwell’s technology allowing them to create a myriad of fashion trends. The brand’s core Topchic and Colorance lines and patented technology of colour morphing and direct dye additives in @Pure Pigments offers new and significant colour opportunities to the salon.

“When we decided to look at all the colour brands on the market and what would suit WILLOMINA the best, Goldwell and KMS was a cut above the rest,” said Chris Hunter, Owner of Willomina. “The pure quality of the Goldwell colour range was more than enough to convince us to become a salon partner, but it just so happened we were aligning with KMS too. We have a very strong cutting and styling ethos at WILLOMINA and needed a range of products that would really highlight that.”

“The Kao Australia team are also a bunch of legends. Working with a big brand can sometimes be daunting, but they really treat you like an individual salon, not just another account.”

Chris will continue to innovate in salon and beyond, with a new education initiative titled CoMMMunity Events that features sessions from leading hairdressers around the country expressing their creativity in intimate education settings.

Big things are happening all around for this salon!
