Meet Maurice from Maurice Meade

Tell us about Maurice Meade 
Maurice Meade first opened in Subiaco in 1974. After opening the next few salons we launched in Karrinyup Ahearn’s in 1988, at this time there was 10 senior stylists and 5 apprentices. 11 years later we opened a second salon in Karrinyup, which is still open and thriving today.
What is your favourite part about owning a business?
My favourite part of owning Maurice Meade is developing staff and seeing them grow and achieve their hairdressing dreams. I have hairdressing staff that have been with us for nearly 30 years, from junior trainees to leaders in salon education, it is very rewarding to be apart of their journeys.

What hairstyles are the most popular this season?
Hairstyles always come and go and this season a variety of bangs and fringes have come back in which makes me reminisce of when we first opened in the 70s! There is also a focus on healthy glossy looking colour.

What products can you not live without?
My favourite hair products are by the luxury Japanese brand Shu Uemura Art of hair. I use them daily. We stock this brand in all our salons.
Who or what inspired you to start your own business?
Back in 1974 when I decided to open the first Maurice Meade salon I was inspired by the opportunity to be able to bring about change and innovation to the hairdressing industry. At the time hairdressing in Perth wasn’t considered luxurious. We were the first salon to do the ‘wet cut’, as previously a haircut in Perth was a practical dry trim.
When not managing the businesses, how do you like to spend your free time?
I spend my time with watching the Eagles win; walking my dog Archie and watching my grandchildren grow every day. Family is very important to me, which is why my family is involved in the day-to-day business activities.

What makes Karrinyup Shopping Centre an important part of the community?
Shopping centres have always been the place for local friends and families to meet. Karrinyup shopping centre is no exception and they create an inviting space to socialise, shop and indulge. We are grateful to be apart of the experience for local Karrinyup customers.
