Stylist, colourist and wedding specialist, Elise Idiens completed her apprenticeship in Canberra before venturing to Europe where she further honed her skills with the distinguished Ikon Hair Design in Cork, Ireland.

Once home in Australia she furthered her skills as a colourist at the International award winning Mahogany Hairdressing, Potts Point, Sydney. After extensive training she then spent four years alongside two times Australian hairdresser of the year Brad Ngata.

During Elise's four years at Brad Ngata Hair Direction she became salon manager at Brad's prestigious 'IVY' salon. And built on her already extensive knowledge on editorial and wedding styling techniques.

November 2013 Elise joined the humble team at Cleveland's salon and cafe´. Here she was able to further develop her mens cutting/styling and excelled in her services of providing bridal hair services on location nationally and internationally.

Currently Elise works on a community based project of a POP UP hair salon in rural, remote Australia. The objective of a POP UP is to evoke creativity, assist in relief of mental illness and offer rural hairdressers an opportunity of further education.
