Where does the application go? Meet Zoe.

Zoe is our Director of Education & Resources and has loved working at Prema for 12 years. She works as a colourist in Bondi part-time and other days managing education and pathway opportunities, team support and recruitment. Zoe is also our resident astrologer.

“Prema is a collective group of individuals that work together as a family. When we have challenges, we work with each other to move forward and grow. We work hard and enjoy time out together as well. We just love what we do, we aim to stay grounded and down to earth and celebrate individuality and creativity. We will support you to find your own direction and aim to create opportunities for people who work hard within the salon but also in creating their own unique path with hair.

The first step is to email me your current CV and we can work together from there. I will email you to make contact and arrange a time to meet up. I’m keen to meet with anyone no matter what level of skill, from no experience but a passion for hair or those who have been hairdressing for a while and are looking to change their work environment. So really anyone who might be interested in working at Prema, I would love to chat about how we can work together.”

Why did you choose Prema? 

Looked at the website first, then liked the look of the salon. After standing outside watching the salon for 45 minutes I decided to go in. When I went into Prema Johnny was putting a ‘staff wanted’ sign on the front and I told him to take it down. Haha I gave him my CV and ran away. That afternoon they called me for an interview and I spoke to Franc. The main thing I remember about the interview is that Franc said, ‘while you work for myseIf, work for you. So what do you want from me in working at Prema?’ I told him what I wanted growth in the industry, to focus on styling more and eventually get into editorial styling.

Have they lived up to your expectation? 

Yes, I think it’s gone beyond my expectation because Prema has also changed as a company while I’ve worked here. Throughout the years that I’ve been here, there’s not been a year that I haven’t seen myself progress and be better than the year before.

What is the styling team like to work with?

Good, teamwork is probably the main focus. It’s about self-development as well as team development. No matter how good each person is they are always wanting to learn more.

We were out together the other night and a girl from another salon came up and asked if we all worked together. She said she was mesmerised watching us all together because we were having so much fun. She said at the end of the day in her salon everyone just leaves and no one hangs out together. I think we’re all friends as well as colleagues.

What would be your main reason to stay at Prema?

To see where we can grow to. It’s not just about me anymore in the 5 year plan, it’s about Prema as well and I’m intrigued to see where we will be in the future.

Meet Sarah-Jay

How long have you worked at Prema?

Just over a year.

Were you scared when you first started working at Prema?

Yes, I was intimidated, it’s scary coming from a smaller salon to Prema.

So why did you go to Prema?

I was wanting to change salons and find somewhere that I could get a good education. I am friends with Dale and we met up and he said I should apply there.

Have you been given education while you’ve been working there?

Yes, heaps. I was thrown straight into the Master Colourist Program and lots of other education from the people I work with. I feel like it’s made me a stronger hairdresser.

What is the colour team like to work with?

Hahaha I don’t know…crazy. Their helpful, I don’t know it’s like a family.

Mel – I liked her from the beginning because she was real and upfront

Katie – Is a little pocket rocket

Matt – He’s like my mentor, no matter how busy he is always free to help me

Billie – Fun to muck around with I like to tease her

Zoe – When I came here on my skills assessment I was freaking out, she calmed me down and she still does

That’s my little Bondi colour family.

Do you just do colour or do you do other services as well?

Yes, at Prema I colour all day and the occasional blow dry.

What would be your main reason to stay at Prema?

When I first started I was questioning if I made the right decision because I lost my confidence a bit. I had only ever been at the one salon before. But I stayed because I love the people I work with and I feel like I’ve got a lot more to learn here.

How do you feel at Prema now?

I love it. Except for the music sometimes lol… I feel like I’m finally in a rhythm here now and I’m excited to go up to the senior level soon.

Meet Jesse

How long have you worked at Prema?

5 months

What were you doing before Prema?

I was freelancing as a makeup artist and assisting on commercial editorial shoots with hair and makeup. Previously before that I was a pastry chef.

Do you go to Tafe?

My Tafe is in salon education that they offer at Prema. It’s great because you’re in the salon environment while your learning. It’s very hands on which is excellent because the hairdressing industry isn’t about book work, it’s about hair! There’s lots of time to learn and focus which is hard in a Tafe environment with so many people in the Tafe classes. There’s all different elements like colouring, cutting, styling and working one on one with your own clients.

What was your interview like before you started?

I felt very comfortable and relaxed when I came into the salon and I didn’t feel intimidated at all. I was welcomed and the questionnaire I had to fill out gave me time to feel prepared. I got to ask lots of questions about the salon environment and the industry. Zoe was very friendly and approachable, we had a great chat about where I wanted to go in my career and any concerns I had about being an older apprentice.

How old are you?

I’m 25.

What is the apprentice team like to work with?

Very friendly, humble and hardworking. We have a range of ages and levels of progression. We understand the true value of teamwork and supporting each others goals/dreams. The educators and salon managers take pride in supporting the apprentices if any challenges arise, personal and professional.

If someone told you they wanted to be an apprentice at Prema what would you say? Go for it!

This all sounds pretty perfect, did they tell you what to say in this interview? Hahaha no. When I first came for the interview they teamed me up with an apprentice called Elie and he showed me around the salon. So if your reading this and you’re going to come in for an interview I’d love to show you around the salon and answer any questions you might have.
