ABOUT US

WHAT WE DO

When Internationally award-winning celebrity colourist, hair extension queen, and Showpony educator, Jess Barrow created Gold Society, she envisioned a space where people would come together for not only banging hot hair but to be educated and inspired. Where clients could expect to be queens for a while in an unpretentious and super fun salon.

With over 20 years of experience in the industry – don’t start trying to guess her age – she is on a mission to morph the game. She has experienced the industry all over the globe, from Pairs and the UK to Russia, New York to Singapore and NZ. Picture a tribe of the best in the business… the cre’me de la cre’me, creating the latest in high fashion colour and style. That is her squad and they’re unstoppable.

With Jess being an exclusive Wella Color Expert, and Passionista, Gold Society has fast grown a reputation in both the industry and on the streets for Corrective colour work, poppin’ blondes, the incredible miracle weft extensions, which the team are the most experienced in the Shire for this incredibly undetectable service, and for transforming their clients hair into only what dreams are made of!

They are basically hair dream-weavers. But it’s not just about looks – It’s about doing right by the Earth. These babes are all about the sustainable stuff. Delivering only the best SUSTAINABLE products and education, you can feel confident that you will be strutting out of the salon with a new found confidence and a fab head of hair!
