OSCAR OSCAR'S SECRET TO STAYING A CUT ABOVE
Written on the 6 June 2016 by Laura Daquino
IN THE business of luxury and looking good, Oscar Oscar might be considered a natural fit to jump on the social media bandwagon.
Growing up on a farm in the countryside, Irish-born Cullinan never dreamed of entering the hairdressing industry as a young boy.
It wasn't until he moved to Australia on a holiday visa and fell in love with Brisbane that hairdressing became an option.
"It's a little bit like buying a second-hand Gucci bag or a fake Gucci bag in Thailand - people identify true quality, they want the real deal and they are prepared to pay for it."
Cullinan says out of 3000 clients per week, he probably receives feedback from two or three which is 'rarely technical and more about the meetings of the minds between hairdresser and customer'.
"We train, mentor, coach and develop staff to the end point. If you cut the mustard, it's a bit like working for a luxury car brand - you don't want to leave and take a job with Toyota."
