Below is a copy or an article that was recently printed in the local paper.

Mount Column’s local, well established hairdressing salon, Rock Paper Scissors, has relocated into a newly built, spacious shop. Still located at the Mount Coolum shopping centre, at the base of the iconic Mountain we all love!

The shopping centre has undergone a face lift. Salon owner Tracy Dowell explains. This includes a brand new shop for my already well established hairdressing salon, which we have now moved into, located at the rear of the new arcade, behind the coffee shop.

It is an amazing location! The view of the mountain from our large salon windows is spectacular, extremely relaxing! I have owned Rock Paper Scissors at Mount Coolum for over seven years, so to still be here, in a fresh new shop is very exciting.

Myself, and my wonderful work mate, Donna Miller have worked together at Rock Paper Scissors from the start, and along with our new stylist, Katrina Richards, we have all had over twenty years, each, of extensive experience in the industry.

I feel extremely lucky to have such a hard working, experienced team, along with a very loyal clientele, which creates our rare and special working environment.

My team specialises in all all hairdressing services, including; Creative cutting and colouring, foiling, perming, blow-drying, chemical straightening, wedding/formal upstyling, and facial waxing/tinting.

We are stockists of professional hair care products by KEUNE and GHD. They have an extensive range of both, retail and colour products available at affordable prices.

We would love to invite you, new and existing clients, to pop in and have a look, speak to our friendly staff and make an appointment for a Great Hair Do!! Or call us on; 07 54465661
