Keiron (Kez)


I am co-owner of Unique PHD, Director of Salon Administration and Nicolas’ other half in life! For me this little salon, creative space and home for many, is a lifetime dream of wanting to own and manage my own business. Have the opportunity to be able to do this with your best friend is simply a dream come true!

I started my working life in retail and managed the nations busiest Kmart stores before joining the QAS. After seven years looking after the most vulnerable, I joined Brisbane City Council then Murrays Coaches. Since we opened the salon doors November 2015 I have been in the background working on the salon with the odd appearance here and there.

When the opportunity arose for Nicolas and I to run our little salon together we jumped at it! And here we are today. It is both our goal to be able to help others on their personal journeys in life and for Nicolas it’s through hair and creativity, for me it’s being able to listen and have a yarn! We feel very humbled to offer to you Unique PHD.
