Ever wondered who the faces are behind RNA?….

Ever wondered who the faces are behind rna?

  • Baz – Robs Hubby/Dad/Grandad/Mr fix-it/Jack-of-all-trades. Baz has spent many a night in the salon doing all the odd jobs that need doing! He has been our rock since it all began, 27 years ago.
  • Rob – Creator, Director, Wife, Mother and super-proud Grandma and overseer of the salon. Rob started RNA Studio when her daughter, Libbie was 3 years old and it’s been her third child ever since.
  • Libbie – Director/Social Media/Advertising/Marketing. Lib started working in the salon at the ripe age of just 18 months of age! In 2016 she was fortunate enough to buy into RNA Hair and is super excited to see where 2017 will lead. They have great plans!
  • Nathan – Creative Director/Trainer/Sydney Hairdresser/Finalists for men’s hairdresser of the year/Best Dad Ever. Nathan loves all things hair and Education. He educates with Lil Off The Top (Togninis) and has a huge year planned for RNA Hair in terms of education.
  • Oliver – Son/First Grandson/best thing since sliced bread. 1 year old and super cheeky.

The only one missing is Al. She is our tea and tidy/ballroom dancer extraordinaire. You may have seen her around. She always knows how to bring a smile to your face even on the worst of days.

We first opened our doors in 1990, then known as Rob & Angie’s Hair and Beauty. We have cared for our clients and always strived to make them feelconfident and beautiful on the inside as well as out. We are proud to say a lot of our clients have become good friends and some our extended family. We have watched some clients grow from kids and even have kids of their own. Since then we have grown, moved location, added a beauty salon moved again until finally amalgamating into one beautifully styled one stop shop for all your hair and beauty needs. But in all that time and over all the changes we have gone through one thing has remained constant, we are FAMILY OWNED and operated and LOCAL. RNA Hair Studio is directed by Rob who has been hairdressing for more than 35 years. She has given it her all and the salon’s have always been her 3rd child.

We are always looking for outside education and products to keep our salon and staff up to date in the latest in the hair and fashion world.
