‘Genuine people’ attracted new family and business

HAIRDRESSER Teresa Flight visited Gympie a handful of times before moving to the region three years ago and deciding to stay.

"The people are so genuine," she said of her decision to settle down with husband Paul and their four children.

Mrs Flight runs her business, Studio 104 Hair Design, in Mary St's Cullinanes Plaza.

The hairdresser decided after three years of working in Gympie in the industry to go it alone in January of this year.

It has been a decision she has not regretted.

Joining Mrs Flight in wielding the scissors and leaving a trail of happy customers are employees Bec Cook and Louisa Wirata.

"I have employed two of Gympie's top stylists," she said of her staff.

"We have worked together in the past and between us we have many years of experience in hairdressing.

"We like to take the time and to give our clients that personalised service."

Mrs Flight said quality was her team's ambition.

"Making you and your hair beautiful is our commitment," she said.

Studio 104 Hair Design covers all aspects of hairdressing, from cutting to colouring, perming, eye lash tinting and eyebrow tinting and waxing.

Mrs Flight was trained in London and has 25 years experience in the field.

The big move to Australia was in 1993 to the Gold Coast where the family stayed for 13 years before returning to the United Kingdom.

A decision to then move back to Queensland came in 2008 with the family living in Hervey Bay before pulling up roots and moving south to Gympie.

Meanwhile, Ms Cook grew up in the Gympie area herself and attended James Nash State High School.

She started hairdressing in 2000, completing her training in Hervey Bay and Maryborough.

In 2004, Ms Cook returned to Gympie to continue hairdressing and had a small break when her son was born.

"I love doing colours and foils," she said.

"In my spare time, I decorate cakes for my family and friends as well as showing my horses on the weekends."

Louisa has also called Gympie home for many years and is married with children

She has a great knowledge of colours and is passionate about her job.
