Inspiring stories from the women of the Apotecari salon family, to connect and empower women this International Women’s Day.
FOLLOWING IN HER FOOTSTEPS WITH YVONNE OF BRUSH AND CO
There’s no female role model like that of a mother. Yvonne of @brush_and_co inspired by her mother, forged her path in the hair industry after being inspired by her mother’s work as a stylist throughout the 80s and 90s. With 28 years in the industry, Yvonne’s passion lies in helping other women love their hair, with one of her proudest moments being when a client after years of trying to straighten her curly hair, turned to Yvonne to say “You taught me to love my own hair”.
If you’re in need of a stylist who cares for your hair, visit Yvonne at Brush + Co in Preston, Melbourne.

INSPIRED BY OTHER WOMEN WITH FAYE REDFERN OF HER ON OXFORD
An ambitious and daring female, Faye bravely opened her salon, HER on Oxford, during the pandemic. A nod to #FemaleEmpowerment and #WomenSupportingWomen, the salon’s name was inspired by her clients who would often talk about being inspired by other women and wanting to reference other hairstyles and looks. As an ode to inspiring women as individuals, Her on Oxford captures what their lifestyle is all about, their natural hair texture and colour, and focuses on enhancing that, rather than covering it up.
If you’re in need of a Perth-based stylist, visit Faye at HER on Oxford in Mount Hawthorn.

A message from Morgan: “Go out there and get what you want, you don’t need anyone to help you if you are willing to hustle and sacrifice the world is yours. Stay true to yourself always. Happiness is not a permanent state, wholeness is!”
