Shalom Maunga


One of the Valonz Group ‘homegrown’ talents, Shalom started her career in our esteemed Renya Xydis City salon. Being educated within our coveted education program, Shalom has developed her skill set to be one of our brightest and creative talents. Shalom has elevated her craft through sheer tenacity in learning & being taught by some of the industries leaders in cutting & colouring. Her colours are technically advanced and her cuts are fresh & ever-changing, her blow dries are “what women want” big, sexy and long lasting, which has gained her a solid and loyal clientele within the Valonz Group.

Rich brunettes, beautiful blondes & balayage accompanying messy long bobs or long layered haircuts is what I love creating – think textured natural beachy hair with rich & creamy colours. Maintaining the hair’s condition is one of my main priorities. To finish there is nothing I love more than a strong, sexy blow dry – making my clients step out of my chair feeing beautiful”

One to push boundaries she is constantly expanding her skills to keep abreast of trends and her passion is taking her clients expectations from good to great. Having worked as a head assistant to Master Stylist George Vasalaris & Editorial Stylist Travis Balcke in Salon X over the last three years, Shalom has been constantly learning and watching, fine-tuning her styling techniques.

I have worked with Shalom since she started with our team in 2016 at Renya Xydis City salon. Right from the start, it was evident that she had talent in hairdressing. A quiet achiever she has submerged herself in the craft, she gives her clients the very best of her skills and her work speaks for itself – simply beautifully executed, with clients walking away from her chair beaming. It has been a pleasure to educate Shalom and watch her develop into one of our company’s brightest stars” – Travis Balcke Editorial Stylist / Balmain Creative Director ANZ


Creatively she has limitless ideas & techniques that she shares with her existing & new clients that keep their looks on par with today’s latest trends both locally & internationally.
