“When you look your best, you feel your best.”
ABOUT Belinda Goodwin Hair and Makeup
To bring current trends and popular culture together through hair and makeup. Every face is different so working to enhance your best features is my ultimate goal. Whether it be your haircut, hair colour, keratin, hairstyle, or makeup…. walk out that door with a swagger. Life is so much easier when you feel put together.
SALON OR MOBILE:
I work 3-4 days in the salon in Darlinghurst and freelance the rest of the week, coming to you for event hair and makeup. This flexibility allows me to work around your schedule to take care of all your needs including working on a Sunday and Monday when most salons are closed and earlier or later time slots when life gets demanding. Although I am an easy 5 minute walk from Kings Cross Train station, If you are travelling in from further afar and need to park for longer periods, perhaps Sundays in the Darlinghurst will suit you best or my mobile service can save you time.
24 YEARS EXPERIENCE
After doing a four-year apprenticeship in Australia with national award winning hairdressers I took my career overseas for five years gaining valuable international experience working in London and Toronto, working backstage in London Fashion weeks and studying cutting, colouring at Vidal Sassons. On returning to Sydney, I joined Toni and Guy and worked my way up to be an Art Director, whilst doing makeup on the side with fashion shots, Album covers and weddings then launched my solo career in all aspects of hair and makeup for the last 10 years. I am a firm believer in continually investing my spare time into upskilling and staying on trend in the world of hairdressing and makeup, aligning with prestigious, high quality products and brands.
From the minute you book, to sitting in my chair, I aim to make your one to one boutique experience with me relaxed and professional. You are the most important person to me so if you wish to take a break from the hectic world and be pampered, or catch up on some work whilst getting your hair done, allow me to take charge of your locks to lipstick either in the salon or in your home. I am flexible with bookings and can work as early or late to accommodate your schedule whenever possible. I work mostly in the shop in Darlinghurst but have flexibility around the other days and to come to you too by request. Please note though, during these current times it is now recommended to book ahead as lastminute bookings may not comply with the Covid Safety measures (see more detail below).
Having a great love for our planet, and an awareness of climate change I choose whenever possible to work with sustainable brands and practices to protect ourselves, our environment and our animals. Kevin Murphy salon products have natural ingredients harvested from sustainable practices, no SLS, parabens, no testing on animals and the packaging is recycled from Ocean Waste Plastic. Nontoxic Cezanne Smoothing Keratin is also used, Colour Design (Italy) has no ammonia and is measured precisely to prevent wastage into our water systems. Any minimal chemical excess is safely disposed of and Aluminium foil, cardboard, glass and recycling is done on a daily basis.
COVID19 SAFETY PLAN:
Booking at least one day ahead is recommended where every client is screened and checked they are feeling well for their appointment, otherwise I am happy to reschedule until you feel better if any illness is experienced on the day of your service. 70% alcohol Hand Sanitiser is supplied and fresh clean face masks to be worn by myself and all clients where possible. I will also wear a shield when working face on. Client appointments are spaced out to allow for every workstation, chair, makeup brush, clip, comb scissor, clipper, straightening iron, basin to be vira-cleaned before and after each customer. Single use gowns and towels are used and fresh air in the workspace will be present as part of the Covid Safety plan to stay open and keep the community safe. If either of us feel the slightest symptom of a cold or flu on the day of your appointment, please let me know and let us reschedule. It is important to remain honest and flexible with each other during these times so your patience is appreciated. All names and numbers are kept for contact tracing purposes.
For over 20 years, I have worked for the best brands in the most fashionable locations including London, Toronto and Sydney. I’ve worked in salons such as Tommy Guns, Aveda and Toni & Guy. I’ve worked an Art Director and Educator at Toni & Guy for 6 years and I’ve also worked on London Fashion week and Fashion shows around Australia and also doing Hair and makeup for weddings and events.
I offer an upbeat, friendly service as part of the boutique salon experience - serving wine and including pampering head massages - to take care of my client's every need. My vision is to personalise the latest contemporary looks for my clients through careful consultations and attention to detail.
I've worked for the some of the top hairdressing names in the industry styling in London, Toronto & now I'm based in Sydney. I promise you wont be disappointed.
