The New Place in Brisbane to Shop, Eat, Live and Be Seen…

Hey Tigers! Have you heard??

There’s whispers of new beginnings on the horizon and we wanted you to be the first to know!

It’s official!  Tigerlamb is opening another salon!

All great thanks to you!

Brisbane’s new epicentre of chic has arrived- and we are right in the middle of it baby!

Yep, we’re the new kids on the Brisbane  ‘King Street’ block and you’re in for a treat, baby…

This glittering 6-star green development is the new place to shop, eat, live and be seen.

It’s Super snazzy- and your very own Tigerlamb is so proud to be part of this!

Do you remember our humble beginnings?  Our cosy den, back in 2005, where we started snipping and splashing colour in Teneriffe. Since then, you have taken us on our journey, to where have grown in into the group of three gorgeous boutique salons that we are today.  Then when our New Farm Tigerlamb was born the Tigerlove grew.

The support we felt from you was overwhelming.

You gave us confidence in to venture down the river, to the glamorous Portside salon –  now with a team of incredibly passionate hairdressers who, like the other tigerteams, are seriously dedicated to you.


With your love and support, we really did want to be the best we possibly could.  And hey, that’s a never-ending journey.  But when we were recognised two years running as ‘Newcomer of the Year’ across Australia, (Australian Hair Industry Awards) we couldn’t have been happier.

Well, it didn’t stop there. After being featured in dozens of international publications, including a couple of super famous covers, we have been humbled by the numerous invites to work with the best – Fashion Weeks, Photoshoots, Parades, Events and Symposiums both in Australia all over the world.

We can’t get enough of this hair stuff!!

It’s all because of you
So, thank you for helping us be who we want to be – Happy Tigers, doing beautiful hair. We wouldn’t be here without you, and couldn’t love looking after you anymore than we do. We love our craft, our salons, and love that you keep loving it as much as we do!!

Tiger life is going to go to another level of fun with smoking hot, beautiful, healthy hair at King street and we can’t wait to see you there!

I’m pretty sure you’ll love it.

Let’s do this!!

with Tigerlove,
Helen XX

P.S. Oh, you’ll find King St at the RNA showgrounds, in between St Pauls Terrace and Gregory Terrace.

I’ll keep you updated on the opening! x

A new Tiger joins our family!

Tigers have some news!

We think it’s about time we introduce you to our newest member, Laura-Ann!

All about the BALAYAGE and BLOWDRIES, Laura-Ann absolutely loves working in the hair industry, and we’ll tell you what – she sure knows her stuff!

We asked her a few questions to share with you all so you have a chance to get to know her…


Laura-Ann Pollock

LA (everyone calls me LA), Lappy, LaLa

Favourite thing about my job
BALAYAGE!! (all styles and colours) and big bouncy blowdries, also super sleek smooth blow-dries

Super power
The perfect balayage blend, (and we’re blending, and we’re blending, and we’re blending) and off course Blowdries

Something cool I’ve done in my career

It has given me the opportunity to travel the world over the last 10 years, cutting, colouring and styling all the way. Doing a wedding season in Barcelona has to be my highlight so far.


Laura-Ann can’t wait to meet our gorgeous Tiger clients and perform her amazing hair magic! That’s all for now our fav people, we’ll keep you updated with more events on the Tiger front as they occur!
