Zenobia has been obsessed with hair for as long as she can remember. At 14, she got her first job in a small hairdresser’s salon in the UK as a shampoo girl, it was here that her passion for creating beautiful hair and providing a blissful service were ignited. 

As she grew, so did her love for hair, beauty, and people. While completing her Bachelor in Business Management and commencing her Masters of Social Work, Zenobia assisted in her Mother’s beauty salon offering hair styling and makeup services. After graduating university, she worked all over the UK in a corporate role, while also working with MAC Cosmetics and freelancing in bridal hair and makeup.

Zenobia always knew that one day her corporate career would underpin her drive to create a space that incorporated her passion for hair, beauty and ethical practices. 

Finally, a move to Melbourne in 2016 re-ignited her desire to work in salons, and she made the transition into the hairdressing industry. 

Gaia is the culmination of Zenobia’s love of people, planet, and creativity, it is the sanctuary that plays home to her deepest passions, and she welcomes you to join her and the Gaia team in nourishing hair, soul and earth.

Elephant – I like them but the test said Pantha

Bright pops of colour! Or an edgy short cut.

Being a free spirit, being able to express who I am but also to help my guests find their feet in their own journey of creativity.

I am a twin, and have a twin brother.

We’re about switching off, going inward, and doing something for yourself.
