Hairdressing study pays dividends for Stephanie

31 Jan 2017

Stephanie Osigli is not one to wait for opportunities to fall into her lap.

“Nothing in life is handed to you on a silver platter; you have to put yourself out there and create your opportunities,” says the energetic young hairdresser, who works six to seven days per week sharing her passion with her clients.

Stephanie recently completed her Certificate III in Hairdressing at Melbourne Polytechnic but was already working in a salon long before finishing her studies.

Now, during the week and on Saturday mornings she works in a salon, and the rest of her weekend is usually busy ensuring brides and their bridal parties look their sophisticated best for their big day.

“The wedding season is late September to May and I’m always really busy,” she says. “Most of my work comes from word of mouth, from salon clients or from wedding clients who refer me to their friends.”

Stephanie has embraced the power of social media to promote her wedding work, as her client base is generally people in their late 20s or early 30s who are equally comfortable with the medium.

“My Instagram page is a great tool, it is a fantastic way for my portfolio to reach potential clients regardless of where they are located. I can express my personality and clients can get a sense of security from seeing the actual results of my work.”
