About - Salon Baby

SALON BABY MAGAZINE is part of the SALON BABY family, a creative business by renowned Australian hair stylist, Barney Gleeson. Along with the salon/studio and the e-store, SALON BABY MAGAZINE celebrates innovation and creativity in hair, beauty and fashion.

‘I created SALON BABY as a home for my work, interests and skill set. As a large part of my work is outside the salon, the business was devised to embrace all elements as a single idea; a business that blurred the lines between commercial and creative,’  explains Barney. ‘The magazine was the first and now the last piece of the puzzle.’

‘I wanted to share the stories and creative path of not only me, but the incredible talent around met to invite these creatives to share their passion and skills Salon Baby and the world,’ explains Barney. ‘We are only as strong as our team… and for most of my work the ‘team’ includes professionals from many creative fields. SALON BABY MAGAZINE is a celebration of them.’

The work is either created by SALON BABY HAIR or create for SALON BABY MAGAZINE. Creatives are invited to collaborate to produce work for the magazine, with local artists invited to work within the studio to produce magazine content.
