Adam made history by becoming the first and only hairdresser from the ACT to win the prestigious Australian Hairdresser of the Year, a title recognising the most outstanding talent from the top echelon of hairdressing. Adam was also one of Australia’s top 10 hairdressers (named by Harper’s Bazaar), a title he has retained for more than a decade.
In 1987, Adam opened Next Hair in Braddon, which became Canberra’s most nationally awarded salon. Next Hair was the first Canberra salon to pick up Australian Colourist of the Year, a national title it held twice. Next Hair won up more than 65 awards throughout its 20 years and had its work published extensively, in respected industry and consumer magazines and online, in Australia and around the world.
More than three decades later, Adam opened Rare Hair in 2018 wanting to provide clients with a truly boutique salon experience.
Giving back to the industry and developing hairdressing as a genuine profession is Adam’s biggest priority outside of the salon—as a mentor, a trainer, an educator and a judge. He has professionally trained for Unite and Provana. He has also held high-profile training sessions at Hair Expo and for the Australian Hair Fashion Awards.
