Famed Queensland salon dynasty Zorba Hair and PC Hair Salons have made a big announcement to their over four-decade salon journey, partnering with the Kao Salon Division. The business is led by Peter Kotis and his daughters Anna and Kaliopi, becoming something of an institution in hair.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Zorba Hair and PC Hair Salons to Kao Salon Australia. Peter Kotis is one of our industry’s pioneers,” said Justin Anderson, General Manager Kao Salon Division Australia. “Zorba’s commitment to hairdressing excellence spans more than 41 years and with Peter’s daughters now heavily involved, the business will continue to grow into the future. We look forward to supporting Zorba Hair and PC Hair Salons both creatively and commercially in this next phase of their growth and business success.”
The business has stocked Goldwell and KMS products for close to 40 years, making the partnership a natural alliance. The team also said that the continued innovation and progression in these technologies is their biggest inspiration in their 41-year success story and their shared values with Kao Salon Division only adds to the synergy.
“I established the business always focusing on loyalty and care, the two philosophies that have made our business thrive for so many years. These are the same two attributes I see with Kao Salon Australia. A family that highlights loyalty and shines with care,” Peter said.
“We truly feel that the Kao Salon Division in Australia is an amazing representation of what a partnership should be. Our families align and we feel privileged to be a part of such a wonderful group of people and products.”
Top-tier products have always been core to the salon business, with a dual focus and success in both service and retail counted among the salon giant’s biggest achievements, making this product partnership all the more significant.
“Our true belief is that you can’t have great hair without great products,” Peter said. “We take great care in analysing the hair and prescribing the best personalised regime for each of our clients therefore giving them the best end result. Our retail consultants undergo as much training as our stylists to ensure their knowledge of all brands and their technologies is the best it can be.”
The family business stretches across Queensland, with Zorba Hair based in Westfield Carindale and two PC Hair Salons in Westfield Garden City and Westfield Chermside. The business was first established 1965, with PC Hair Salons added in 1999, and has made its mark on the industry with innovative approach to business and in-salon retail concepts.
“The secret to Zorba’s success has been constant innovation. From the first ‘His and Hers Salon’, to revolutionising the hairdressing industry by introducing multiple retail brand options into a hair salon, the creation of Hair TV and so many other ideas along the way,” the trio said. “Zorba has always been the constant in an ever-changing industry, always putting the care of the clients first. A true family unit, run by the family, staffed by beautiful stylists that have maintained the family unit, and visited by clients who have become family.”
Kaliopi and Anna now innovate in the business, with plans for the launch of their e-commerce store, Glam Box in 2021 adding to a legacy of bold ideas and building off their original PC brand online store business.
“We have some amazing things coming to our brands and can’t wait to share our newest member to our family Glam Box. Glam Box is our new online store launching later this year and will offer exciting new ways to retail online. We can’t wait to share it with everyone, the trio shared.
2021 is another major year for this industry stalwart. Congratulations on the new partnership.
