Q+A with Hermiz
Congratulations on your double-win at the Hair Expo Awards this year! Now you’ve had some time to reflect, what are your thoughts about winning Editor’s Choice as well as the VIC Hairdresser of the Year award (for the second year)?
The Editor’s Choice Award is still kind of a shock to me since it was announced last-minute on the awards night! It’s a privilege to win that. As for Victorian, now that’s amazing saying that it’s the second time in a row!
You’re opening your own salon soon – can you tell us a little bit more about the project?
Stay tuned! It’s literally around the corner from opening. It’s been a very long thought process, I’ve always wanted to have a Hermiz salon.
Why did you decide to open your own salon? Are there any challenges you’ve faced in the process?
I’ve always tried to build my brand in the industry in every aspect as much I could, so I thought that opening a salon would be a really good outcome. Something to call my own.
Aside from the exciting new salon chapter, what’s next for Hermiz?
There are heaps of projects in my head atm and I’m always looking to do something new. The essentials are always there, it’s my daily bread and butter, so I gotta keep them there.
