Cher Ney

Cher began her apprenticeship in Geelong in 1995, after completing an intensive 6 month delivery of Certificate III in Hairdressing at The Centre of Excellence. Once the practical components of her training were completed, Cher traveled to Sydney where, for 3 years, she continued expanding on her trade skills. In 2002 she returned to Victoria and commenced employment in Bendigo in salons located in Kangaroo Flat and central Bendigo.

In 2003 Cher began working at The Australian College of Hair Design & Beauty in Bendigo where she also undertook a Certificate IV in Workplace Training & Assessment. After three years of providing hairdressing & some beauty training to young people of regional Victoria, she left in 2006 to start a family.

Cher recommenced her hairdressing career in 2009 at Salon Inspired Hair & Beauty and in December 2010 purchased the business.

Brooke Hassell - Hairdresser

Beginning her hairdressing training within the VCAL program during Year 10 of her secondary education, Brooke has known from a young age what she wants to do as a career.

She joined the Salon Inspired team in October 2013 as a work experience student and once she completed Year 10 we welcomed her as a full-time apprentice. Brooke has shown a natural talent for hairdressing and worked quickly to perfect her skills and complete her training.

Since completing her apprenticeship with us she has welcomed a beautiful boy to her family and continues to be a joy to our Inspired family.

Tanya Tonzing - Hairdresser

With a career in hairdressing exceeding 25 years, Tanya is a well known face in Bendigo's hairdressing circles.

A specialist for our mature age clients, Tanya enjoys providing those services not provided by many modern salons, for example, perming & setting. She became an integral part of our Inspired team in May 2014 and continues to motivate and encourage all our staff to pursue a career with the same type of enthusiasm and passion.

More recently Salon Inspired has commenced providing services in aged care residences in Bendigo. Tanya can be found pampering our elderly treasures on those days she’s not in salon.

Rachael Kirby - Hairdresser

Rachael began her love affair with hair in 2006 when she took up a Cert 2 in Hairdressing as part of year 12….because she’d already completed enough 3/4 units!

She practiced her craft in Bendigo for a few years then had a brief career change into admin before having a bouncing baby boy. We are very fortunate to have lured Rachael into joining our team.

Since starting with us in 2018, this powerhouse has had even our Keune reps on their toes with her voracious appetite for further training! She is on a mission to become a Keune Grand Master of colour. Blonde, brunette, copper, red or even Chameleon, this gal has the wealth of knowledge to get you there.

Hollie Warren - Hairdresser

People don’t get much more Aussie than Hollie! This down to earth pocket rocket has been hairdressing ALL her life. She’s a well known figure about the hairdressing community with a career spanning over 25 years in the City of Greater Bendigo.

She’ll provide outstanding service in all aspects of hairdressing whilst asking after you, your family, extended family, friends, pets and even your neighbors!. How she knows all these people is mystifying!

A mum of two, she’s seen out and about Strathfieldsaye volunteering her time at St Francis of the Fields P.S., riding the bike tracks or waving merrily as she drives by!

Bradie Tierney - Hairdresser

This debonair fellow is the latest addition to our Inspired team. Starting his apprenticeship at the tender age of just 15, his career has led him down a few different roads of the hair and beauty industry before coming to spend his days with us.

Bradie is best recognized from his time working in Strathdale and prior to that, Eaglehawk, where he spent time as a part owner/operator of a hair and beauty salon. He’s also worked as a sales rep with our favorite colour company, Keune!

A strange and often unseen phenomena of hairdressers, Bradie enjoys PERMING!!! His skills are not strictly limited to curls though. Colour, cut bridal and style, he can work his magic on all.
