  • Olwyn Frost
    Advanced Stylist

    Olwyn is Locks’ own Glinda the Good Witch of the North.  ‘Olly’, as we all know her,  crafts classically beautiful hair, with a combination of traditional sculpted finishes and contemporary techniques .. all softly dusted with her gentle personality. She is our principal Event Stylist for weddings, formals or any special celebrations.

    Olly  completed her apprenticeship at Locks Hair in the late nineties, has since run her own successful salon in Kiama, has freelanced as a Wedding and Make-up specialist, and has how now come full-circle to share her expertise with our team and our guests.

    While not at the salon, or mothering her two daughters, Olly leads a very active lifestyle, running in charitable fun-runs and competing in grueling half-marathons. Go Olly, Go!
