Lorraine Carter - Owner of Streetwise Hair

I started my hairdressing career in 1983 in Keighley in West Yorkshire, England. Back then it was all about precision cutting, bobs and wedges, henna colouring and crimping-we have come a long way since then! I migrated to Australia and have lived in Queensland for 26 years. When arriving in Gympie, I first worked at Hair Review, before moving on to Hair Techniques by Jane, when Hair Review changed hands.

After all these years I still feel very passionate about the hairdressing industry. It's a great feeling being creative, meeting new people, and most of all, changing and transforming someone with a stunning new look. It's the kind of career that is fresh and welcoming-you never stop learning new techniques. I now live in Caloundra, but commute to Gympie most days (Gympie reminds me of Yorkshire and the town has been kind to me, I love the friendliness).

Streetwise Hair has grown from strength to strength-it has a new look and a great team. We have three staff members Kiara, Kelly and myself. Our team are passionate, young and vibrant-everything you want from your local Gympie hairdresser.

Kiara Pergallini - Senior Stylist & Blonde Specialist

Originally from South Australia, my family and I moved to Gympie for 8 years before relocating to the Gold Coast 4 years ago. I completed my hairdressing apprenticeship at Solo Hair on the Gold Coast, specialising in hair extensions (tape, micro beads and beaded sewn weft), colour/foiling, style cutting and men's hair. I have a passion for hair extensions, colour correction and blondes.

I also have certificates and experience in Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics (formal and wedding make-up), spray tanning, eyelash extensions and facial waxing. Come in and see me at Streetwise Hair for a new colour or style cut! I'm available from Tuesday to Saturday!

Kelly Sinn - Senior Stylist & All-Rounder

Hi I'm Kelly and I have been hair dressing for over 28 years. After completing my apprenticeship in Nambour I competed in State-wide hair dressing competitions to establish myself in the hair industry. After winning a number of awards for creative hair design I left Australia to own and manage a successful hair salon near Reading in the United Kingdom. In 2004, I came back to the country I love and returned to the hair salon that taught me success in hair artistry in Nambour. I consequently brought that salon and after 4 years my husband and I recently moved to the Gympie area and sold the salon. I now seek to utilize my abilities in all facets of hair artistry to help you to be the best version of yourself you can be. Whether it's an up-style, a perm, foils, colours or just a style cut, I aim to please.
