Our Happy Clients
My best friend (make up artist for weddings) recommended Penny for my sisters wedding in 2004, we all looked fabulous on the day and I have been having my hair done by Penny since then. I cant speak highly enough of her. I get compliments on my hair regularly (and at times when I have not been local I have tried other hairdressers and they just cant do what Penny does). Penny is an elite stylist with down to earth prices. She really knows what she is doing plus she has a gorgeous heart and treats all her clients like celebrities!
Simply an amazing hairdresser, stylist and person. Penny did my wedding 7 years ago and continues to colour and style my hair to this day. She has repaired my hair from previous hairdressers and my hair has never looked better. Penny gives wonderful advice that is personalised and is honest. She is up to date with the lastest styles and products. It is so hard to find a brilliant hairdresser who consistently gives you beautiful results and I am over the moon to say I have found that brilliant hairdresser ‘ Penny Martin’.
To Dearest Penny,
After knowing you as a friend and my hairdresser for over 15 years, I know what a true professional and great hairdresser you are but still on my wedding day you surprised me. I have always trusted your judgment and you have never let me down. I truly thank you for having the ability to read my mind and produce exactly what I envisaged. Many many thanks Pen.
Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did with my hair on my wedding day, I absolutely loved it, it was perfect. Everybody commented on how lovely it looked and asked who had done it! I still can’t believe how you can transform hair like that, it is a real talent that you have and you are a true professional. It was the best day of our lives. Thank you for all of you help, you are a lovely person and a true gem. I will recommend you to every bride i meet!
Couldn’t ask for a better service. I came to Penny’s by chance when I first moved to Sydney and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else! Hair is always amazing.
I have been going to Penny for over a year now, and couldn’t be happier with my experience. Nothing is too hard for Penny, and her warmth and beautiful personality will win you over before you sit in the the chair. Her hairdressing skills are exceptional, from cuts to colours to upstyles, and I have recommended her to anyone that is in need of a hairdresser.
Penny provides a great personalised service! She always listens to what you want in a hair cut or colour and suggesting things that will suit your face and colourings. Penny was also the hair dresser I chose for my wedding, she did a spectacular job myself, bridesmaids and mum. Thank you Pen!
There is just no one else like Penny. Her talent for hair is only surpassed by her warmth and energy that you feel the moment you are in her beautiful salon.
Penny has been my hairdresser for more than 6 years. For a trim, new style, colour, perm, or special occasion… It does not matter…. She is brilliant.
Before meeting Penny I found it hard to walk out of a salon happy with my hair. This is not the case with Penny, I have never been unhappy with my hair….. She listens and manages to execute exactly what I want.
I just cannot recommend Penny highly enough.
I first came to Penny recommended by a friend to have my hair done for my wedding. I can’t recommend her enough. Her professionalism, attention to detail go hand in hand with her beautiful and warm personality that makes you feel at ease as soon as you step into her salon. Since my wedding, I have come to her for my colour, style, everything, and nothing is ever too hard for Penny. I could not recommend her enough, no one is allowed to touch my hair apart from her from now on!
I have been seeing Penny for quite a number of years and would not know what I would do without her! A lovely person and very experienced!
I met Penny as my daughter hired her to do her hair for the wedding in 2012.
Since them, I have left my current hairdresser (who was quite good, and closer …but Penny was amazing.
She knew exactly which hair colour would suit me, and she always cuts my hair brilliantly. She also makes it a wonderful experience when coming to her salon, and the way she treats her customers quickly makes them become her friends.
She has a certain aura around her, portrays such calmness and she is a spiritual, kind soul.
I am so grateful to have met the beautiful Penny! She’s an incredible hairdresser with a heart of gold. She squeezed me in last minute and worked her magic on my hair.. My hair was in a terrible state after being bleached excessively so Penny corrected it and now I finally love my hair again!! Thank you so much Penny xx
Personal attention, and a whizz with colour. Every visit is a joy!
Penny styled my bridesmaid’s hair for my wedding. The styles were perfect, all slightly similar without being too uniform which was exactly what we all wanted. The style lasted all day, even through 40 degree heat and a lot of dancing! Penny is reasonably priced, super professional and made the whole experience very enjoyable.
From the moment I stepped into Penny’s salon, I knew I had met a true professional who cares!
Penny provided an amazing Bridal Hair service at our home for my daughter’s wedding and made her special day just perfect. She brought a wonderful sense of calm day as she worked on everyone’s hair and had such a caring attitude which made us all feel so special. Her skill and timing was great as she worked with the make-up artist and the end result was stunning!
I have continued to visit Penny’s salon for my hairdressing needs and have always found the hours spent there so relaxing as we chat as she tends to my hair colour and cut. Penny has an in depth knowledge of special needs regarding sensitivity to products and has been able to advise me regarding my particular situation. She listens to exactly what I want and I am always 100% happy as I leave.
Penny even contacts me the next day to make sure I am happy with my colour – such incredible service and attitude that is not usually seen in this industry!
I wanted to get a keratin hair straightening treatment – I was given 2 hairdresser’s numbers in my area by the keratin supplier. I called the first hairdresser asking about the price and after asking me if my hair was long or short, I was given a quote. The second number I was given was Penny’s. I called her and aside from telling me what the cost would be (which was the same as the other hair dresser), she talked me through the entire process so I would understand exactly what the treatment entailed. Then she asked if I had time to drop into her salon so that she could see my hair and if need be, we could discuss other treatment options if the keratin wouldn’t be suitable for my hair.
I was very impressed with her product knowledge and professionalism during that phone conversation and after meeting with her, she continued to demonstrate her outstanding competence, service and professionalism. Penny did such a fabulous job then, that I have never looked back and for the last 7 years I have been privileged enough to have always had my colours, cuts and occasional keratin treatments done by the amazingly talented Penny.
I can positively say that I love my hair thanks to Penny!
I have been going to Penny for years and years.
Penny does amazing colour and cuts. Penny also is the perfect stylist for your wedding day.
I have been on many a bridal shoot with her for magazines and her work is perfect for your perfect day.
I love Penny. xx
I first met Pen when we were planning our wedding in 2010. From the first moment Pen made me feel completely at ease and I quickly learnt that she takes the time to make sure that you are completely happy. She takes the time to explain exactly what she is doing and why and how to keep your hair looking as great as it can until the next appointment.
Penny has done my hair for years. She has great advice on how to deal with my thinning and fine hair. Reading her book also helped me work out styles to suit, and tricks on what to do to help reduce my hair thinning. I can always text her to ask her opinion on hair care products and she gives feedback that really assists you in making informed choices. Highly recommend.
Penny is always cheerful and a great hairdresser. I have always loved building a relationship with my hairdresser, seeing it as a chance for a chat and a catch up (or a quiet time working if necessary) as well as getting my hair done. Penny always allows me to do what I want to do – while working magic on my hair. And, being a busy person, I combine my drive to my Penny’s with a trip to Ikea!
Penny has the touch of an angel. She pours herself into making you feel the best about yourself far beyond the physical services she offers. I fly all the way from Singapore to get my hair done by her and regret the one time I allowed someone else to get their hands on my hair. If you have the opportunity to easily drive to get your hair done by her – I must say – I am jealous!!
I have been a client of Penny’s since 1999. Every time I attend the salon I am made to feel welcomed and special. Penny is an excellent hair stylist and always puts the needs of her clients first.
Penny is a talented, sweet, generous and genuine hairdresser. She thinks about how a style will suit someone’s face, she works with annoying cowlicks and different quirks.
She considers the maintenance and colour to suit the individual and then she teaches you how to style! I could not be happier with Penny.
I have been looking for years since I moved to Canberra for someone as amazing as Penny. No one has ever come close. The care you have for your clients is beyond incredible. From free wifi, coffee, current magazines, snacks, massage chair, good tunes, great conversation and counselling skills. She now even tops it off with JP services.
Penny, you treated me better than family, I feel like a million dollars and you managed to cut my daughter’s hair so that her curls look incredible!
You were the highlight of my visit to Sydney. I can’t wait to come back again! Thanks so much x
Penny is the consummate professional. Perfect hair every time and she makes me look 10 years younger.
I’ve been sing Penny for 15 years, because she listens to what is needed, and I always leave her feeling and looking great! You can’t lose in trying her for colour, special events and good, well styled hair!
I was at Sam’s wedding and you did an amazing job with all the girls’ (and guys’) hair!!
Will definitely recommend you to any brides, and anyone who wants a great hair dresser!!!
