2012. Melbourne, Australia.
Kenny and the Sunshine Girls may be new, but Poppy and Dana have been freelance mobile hair and makeup artists for years. Settling into a bricks and mortar salon of our own has so far been a joy on many levels. Setting up and decorating with our vintage styling in our light-filled space caused much excitement for us, our clients and the North Melbourne neighbourhood.
Our philosophy behind the look and feel of our space is for it to be homely, welcoming, un-pretentious and a delight to visit. We like cups of tea, macramé hanging planters and our budgie, Kenny. It’s kind of like visiting your nana but you come out with fabulous hair.
As much as we love doing a simple haircut and catering for our clients everyday needs, the Sunshine Girls live for making you over for a special event, whether it be a 50’s themed party, wedding, band shots or your best friends 30th. We have loads of experience doing freelance fashion and commercial work and offer in-salon workshops for vintage makeup and hairstyling for you and your friends.
Here at Kenny we use, recommend and sell
For our bridal work go to Lady Day.
Poppy Liu is an award winning, creative hairstylist who is considered something of a hair-up “magician” in the industry. She considers hairdressing not only as work, but an incredibly fulfilling passion and hobby.
After aspiring to become a hairdresser from the age of 8, she began working in Brisbane in 2000 where she accumulated skills as colourist and stylist and also created looks for a television network. In 2005, Poppy moved to Melbourne and took a senior position at a renowned salon, where she never looked back.
In addition to her salon experience and work with Kenny and Lady Day, Poppy has also lent her styling skills to Melbourne Fashion Week and is consistently requested and recommended for her work on fashion shoots and industry events.
