The Kiwi and Bull Team
Kiwi and Bull is the creation of two talented hairdressers – Daniel and Kris – bringing hair culture to Southport. If you are looking for the best when it comes to a Gold Coast colour specialist, you’ve come to right place.
Kiwi and Bull refers to the owners’ heritage, being from New Zealand and Spain. Not only does Daniel speak fluent Spanish, he also serves delicious Spanish tapas and wine to his guests. Kris bakes traditional New Zealand treats, which are very popular with New Zealand expats.
The owners boast over nine years’ industry experience, including working in Melbourne in elite salons such as Chapel Street and Swan Street Richmond.
Dan and Kris have twice been involved in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, where their raw talent and impeccable technique was discovered under the direction of Alex Perry. They have worked with celebrities and fashion stylists, creating styles that complemented the bone structure of each model. Now you can receive this celebrity treatment right here on the Gold Coast.
Their passion for hair is second to none; this is immediately apparent after encountering the Kiwi and Bull experience for the first time.
