Hairdressing for almost twenty years, Suzie McDonald is a Goldwell Master Stylist. Not one to sit on her heels, Suzie prides herself on keeping up-to-date with the latest techniques.
Suzie has studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London each year from 2015 to 2019 and trained at the Schorem Barber Academy in Rotterdam in 2019. Suzie also ensures that her team has access to quality hair education, providing opportunities to attend further training both in Australia and overseas.
Suzie’s commitment to excellence goes right back to her days as an apprentice at award-winning salon, Wild Life in Kirribilli. During her four-year apprenticeship, Suzie was a finalist each year in the Hair Expo Australia Apprentice of the Year awards. Suzie was also a FAME Team finalist, a prestigious nationwide competition for up-and-coming stylists run by the Fellowship Academy of Merit and Excellence.
Not only has Suzie shone amongst the bright lights of New York Fashion Week and Australian Fashion Week, but she also has developed a loyal following of clients over many years. In fact, this is what drives Suzie more than anything to continually excel, her long-term clients who keep coming back and become part of the gorgeous Sudu family.
Suzie is a firm believer in a positive work-life balance and when not in the salon you’re likely to find her having a laugh-filled hit of social tennis, engrossed in the latest Liane Moriarty novel, indulging in a large weak macadamia cappuccino, or hanging out with her divine toddler who is on track to be a dual champion in ball-throwing and raspberry-blowing.
Brighter than the Gorman prints she regularly rocks, Suzie is a hairdresser with a big heart who is not afraid to indulge in a little song and dance in the salon when the occasion requires.
