Chats at the Basin
Did you know we turned 15?!
So, how did the Basin begin?
A chance meeting on an airplane in 1994, then the opportunity to work together teaching hairdressing at Sherman’s hairdressing academy in 1998 all lead to collaborating together in 2002 to start the Basin Haircutters.
What has been your biggest success?
To be completely honest the first success to our 15 years was finding the perfect fit as business partners. This set the foundation for everything else!
What’s the most surprising thing you’ve experienced over 15 years?
The Mandy & Steve partnership is a good base to build a great business, and would you believe we haven’t had one argument in all those years…!!!
What are you most proud of?
The Basin has been very fortunate to have many loyal clients and amazing staff come through the doors. We feel very proud of the team of people we have built past and present.
Why do you think the Basin has been so successful?
Probably because we still feel so passionate about developing young hairdressers and providing the best career support possible for the hairdressers that have been with us for years. If you didn’t think hairdressing was a career option – speak to Mel Macy who has now been with the Basin for 14 years!
What’s in the future for the Basin?
We are completely dedicated to continue to deliver exceptional hair services and products, along with education and training for the Hair Industry. We really look forward to the future and the exciting changes that come with moving forward.
Thank you all for sharing your world with us through your hair services and we sincerely thank those who have been there for the whole 15 year journey,
Here’s to coming of age next year!!
