First meeting as wide-eyed, shag-haired apprentices, the entrepreneurial pair gained valuable experience in the industry before going on to establish their Sydney-based salons VALONZ and SALON X, along with a growing education platform designed to support, inspire and nurture talent at every level.
Powered by an incredibly loyal and talented team of cutting and styling specialists, expert colour technicians and an experienced management team, The VALONZ Group has an unrivalled reputation as industry innovators dedicated to excellence. Our long-standing commitment to education is an important part of our DNA; we inspire and upskill our team with regular education, invaluable mentorship and access to editorial, runway and invaluable growth opportunities, working alongside Renya and some of the world’s leading hair stylists and brands, both locally and internationally. We give our team the flex to grow and further their expertise while still caring for their clients and upholding the VALONZ standard of personalised service.
