I’m Georgie Stuart and I’m the owner of the wonderful My Friend George. I’ve now been hairdressing for over a decade and love every day! Opening up my own salon was one of my dreams and also a big risk and fear of mine, but it has been the best thing I have ever done and every day I am thankful for my family and friends for pushing me to take the leap! I have the best team of fantastic hairdressers that I am so grateful for and we have such a fun time while being professional as well. Customer service is very important to me and I’m always there for all of my clients. Without them I wouldn’t be where I am right now. I enjoy learning new things about hair all the time, and giving myself a challenge is one of the best parts about hairdressing. I do everything in the salon including hair extensions and all types of colouring and cutting. I look forward to seeing you : )



My name is Ashlee Young and I’ve been hairdressing for over 10 years. I love working at My Friend George, everyday I wake up excited to go to work in such a fun quirky salon. I couldn’t ask for a better workplace, it’s a very friendly and cruisey environment. I enjoy doing all fields of hairdressing, men’s or ladies. I’m always happy to take on a challenge, no request is too big or small. I won the Victoria and Tasmania division of Schwarzkopf Photo Flash Hair Competition. I also placed in the top 5 in Australia in the Indola Junior Colour Competition and have had one of my haircuts published in the GQ American Crew 2011 men’s haircut book.
