Donna - Senior Stylist

Having gained experience as Senior Stylist in Brisbane, Cairns and the Gold Coast spanning 14 years, I have worked with all calibre of hairdressers, refining my cutting and colouring skills and techniques. I am motivated to learn and expand my knowledge in this wonderful craft from both local and international creative fashion influences and influencers alike. I look forward to meeting you in the salon soon.
Rachel - Apprentice

I started my hairdressing journey in early 2014 during my make -up course. I began creating hair and make- up looks for photoshoots, editorial work film and high fashion concepts and quickly discovered where my passion was leading. In February 2016 I started my apprenticeship with Neilson Gilmour and have never looked back. Since then I feel I’ve grown so much as a person and a stylist and cannot wait to see what the future holds
Karl Neilson - Salon Owner/Stylist 

A career spanning almost 27 years thus far, began in the UK. After completing my apprenticeship in Cardiff I returned to Brisbane, working in the city as a stylist and staff educator and working on fashion shows and editorial assignments. 

Neilson Gilmour started 17 years ago on the Harbour of Raby Bay. During this time I have had the opportunity to travel all over Australia, New Zealand and South Africa educating hairdressers for L'Oréal and Intercoiffure Mondial gaining accreditations such as ’LOreal Ambassador’ and Intercoiffure ‘Createur da mode’, from Paris.

Hairdressing in its many forms became a passion from the very start and has included a strong photographic element which enables the salon team to showcase their creativity through imagery to show not only an interpretation of current fashion trends but pushing the cutting edge.
