CONGRATULATIONS KIRSTY ON YOUR NEW POSITION AS SWELL REPORT WRITER FOR TERM 3!
Thanks Marilla!

YOU ARE MORE THAN QUALIFIED FOR THE JOB AS A SWELL MAMA MEMBER SINCE 2009.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY NEW MEMBERS SHOULD EXPECT WHEN STARTING OUT WITH SWELL MAMAS?
A massive wave of friendship!
An instant connection with other likeminded people and the ocean.


WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE HAIRDRESSER EXTRAORDINAIRRE TO THE MAMAS, BUT MANY MAY NOT REALISE THAT BEFORE YOU MOVED DOWN UNDER YOU WERE ALSO HAIRDRESSER TO THE STARS! CAN YOU TELL US MORE??
Hmmm does rod Stewart count??
Stars shmars, it's all very well bragging about who's hair I've done, and it was so much fun at the time, but I'd rather be cutting hair from a caravan at kongwak market!! !


AND YOUR WORK IS ALSO UNIQUE BECAUSE YOU ARE ONE OF THE FEW HAIRDRESSERS IN SOUTH GIPPSLAND USING ONLY ORGANIC PRODUCTS. WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU ABOUT THAT?

On a serious note, it's not just what we put in our bodies that we need to pay attention to because what goes on goes in too. Not many people know this but hair Colour goes straight through your head into your blood and ends up in the stomach. When I realised this I knew it was time to change.

I could never go back knowing what I now know about chemical hair colours. It's about time more salons woke up and looked into it further. I challenge you to ask your hairdresser next time you get your hair done about what's in their Colours! I didn't know for 24 years. But having made the change I feel passionate that others should make themselves more aware.

YOU OBVIOUSLY ARE VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR WORK, AND YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT SURFING- WHAT ELSE EXCITES AND INSPIRES YOU?
I can't not mention my son Rex here! Every time I look at him I'm in awe at this person me and gene created and how he's growing in this world!
People inspire me. Nature inspires me. Self discovery inspires me.

I KNOW THAT YOU LOVE COOKING AND ENTERTAINING. IF YOU HAD A DINNER PARTY AND COULD INVITE ANY THREE GUESTS IN THE WORLD, WHO WOULD YOU HAVE?
Gangaji, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, my mum

WHY?
Gangaji taught me how to stop.
As a blind aboriginal man, he teaches me about music, culture, acceptance and love.
I would like my mum to know how much I love her.

WHAT ARE THREE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE LEARNED, THAT YOU NEVER WOULD HAVE KNOWN HAD YOUSTAYED IN LONDON?
How to truly love myself and others with all my heart. (a work in progress)
How to crochet.
And of course how to surf!

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY?

Life's a choice, make the right one! :)
