Ivy has been working in the hairdressing industry for over 20 years. In 2001 she moved to the UK where she was Style Director at Toni & Guy. Ivy found that a hair salon was not the best environment for brides to have their hair done on their wedding day and that many salon hairdressers were not trained in putting hair up. For many people with busy lifestyles or for mums with young children going to a hair salon was not convenient.
She decided that she could instead bring professional salon services to the comfort of her clients’ and brides’ homes or chosen venues, and in 2005 founded Hair On the Move UK, a successful mobile hairdressing service specialising in wedding hair. Hair On the Move has put hair up for thousands of happy brides and won several awards over the years including Best Regional Wedding Hairdresser.
After moving to Australia in 2012 Ivy set up Hair by Ivy, a mobile hairstyling and wedding hair service. Ivy’s goal is to replicate her successful UK business in Australia and use her vast and extensive experience in bridal and wedding hair to provide an exceptional level of service to Western Australia’s brides to be.
