Brendan Watson’s new salon Kave represents everything this talented hairdresser is about. It’s sophisticated, unique – and the attention to detail is second to none.

From the moment you walk in, it’s easy to see how much pride Brendan has taken in getting the salon absolutely perfect. Its modern look is extremely welcoming and the rustic theme just works.  The funky mirrors are one of my favorite features, along with a large flat screen showing Victoria’s Secret parades. For a relatively small space, the salon still feels very open and relaxed. The little waiting space is a nice touch.

Brendan Watson is a highly experienced hairdresser who has achieved something amazing for someone so young and if this salon is anything to go by, I’m sure he’ll be enjoying endless amounts of success for years to come.

Brendan Watson

Brendan has always a passion for Hairdressing starting at a young age, inspired by his Mother, who herself was a Hair Salon owner. Even knowing the hardship that came with the job she encouraged Brendan to pursue his passion and with that Brendan set himself the goal to be the very best he could and make a name for himself in this creative/high fashion industry, and succeeded he has.

Commencing his Hair Dressing apprenticeship in 2006 with Skatt Aveda Concept Claremont, Brendan developed his skills and talent. Within three months after completing his apprenticeship and winning 2008 Taylor Weir Apprentice Of The Year, Brendan was offered the position of Salon Manager at Skatt which allowed Brendan to develop the business skills required in the Hair Dressing industry. Skatt also opened up exposure to photo-shoots, runway shows allowing Brendan to gain invaluable skills and knowledge which would ultimately lead to the next path on his career journey.

After working with Skatt for 5 years Brendan was presented with the opportunity to venture out on his own and worked for himself at the Salon Sorossi Studio. After year n half it was time for Brendan to move into his own Salon.

After months of planning and designing Kave Studio evolved! A lot of hardwork and love went into building Kave Studio and now Brendan has a Salon he can call his own where his clientele can come feel comfortable and receive the professional and experienced service that Brendan Watson is known for.

Elysia Keane

Hairdressing was a career that I wanted to pursue directly after school, however, circumstances led me to initially follow a different path. I Attended Taylor Weir School of Hairdressing and became Runner-up Apprentice of the year at the start of 2016.

I have always had a hidden passion for the love of hair! It makes me very motivated to see the transformation, making people feel beautiful from the moment they walk out the door. I like to keep up to date with the latest hair colours, techniques and trends.

Glen Brophy
