Heading Out Hair’s Chantelle Rozic
What do you love most about Hairdressing?
I love this industry for its diversity. One moment you could be in the salon blow drying, and the next day you can be on location for a campaign shoot. It’s amazing how the world of hair is forever changing!
Who has been the driving force behind your career to date?
This is an interesting question as there have been many driving forces in my career so far. My bosses at Heading Out GPO along with staff members, especially Kieran Harris and my Heading Out educators, have pushed me and have always been there when I need them. Being able to work along side Caterina Di Biase at Hair Expo this year has made me want to work harder and strive to be the best hairdresser I can possibly be. I also draw inspiration from Brad Ngata and Benni Tognini – their work is absolutely breath-taking.
How does it feel to be apart of a multi-award winning team?
Being apart of the Heading Out family is amazing. There are so many talented people in our company and it has made me want to give back to the industry what I’ve gotten out of it. I’m extremely lucky to have this family to work with. I think at such an early stage in my career it’s important to have that support and drive behind me.
What do you love about the current hair trends?
I’m loving the splash of colour going on in this seasons trends, especially red!
What’s your must have hair product?
L’Oreal Professionnel Texture Expert Fresh Dust is my best friend. It’s great as a dry shampoo or even if you’re feeling a little flat, spray this baby in and you’ve got volume.
What is it that you love about session styling?
I have been blessed at such an early stage in my career to have had the chance to work on many projects with stylists from Heading Out outside of the salon. Session styling allows me to use my creativity to bring something beautiful to life. Every single job is different and exciting. Being able to work with new people from different industries and all being able to picture the end result is such a gratifying feeling.
