INGALISA VAN DEN BROEK
My mission is to work with my clients to bring out the best version of themselves, to increase their confidence and embrace their uniqueness. Whether it is for their wedding day, a corporate or fashion photoshoot, just a style cut and colour or beauty treatment, I get enormous satisfaction out of helping my clients create the look that is just perfect for them.
Thriving on excellence, I am constantly educating and training to keep up with current trends, techniques and products worldwide. This has led to my success over the last 13 years of being in business and I am one of the Gold Coast’s leading hairdressers and makeup artists.
My heart is for Women, especially young girls, discovering who they are and finding their self-worth and their most inner beauty and letting it radiate with confidence. I run a deportment and life skills course in schools which is tremendously beneficial, powerful and lifechanging for those who attend. I have been the stylist and mentor at the annual Gold Coast Versace Princess Dinner with over 500 girls. I often get called into high schools as a guest educator to teach and speak with them about makeup and the importance of self confidence. Let’s get together and so I can listen to your vision and let me help you embrace your uniqueness.
