Meet the Team

Charlie Crothers

Salon Owner / Creative Director

The Nest Hair Boutique is the product of a vision that began ten years ago with my ambition to create a salon where stylists feel appreciated and clients are continuously wowed. Creating a unique and welcoming environment where everyone feels as though they couldn’t be happier anywhere else, is what The Nest is today.

I feel so fortunate to be able to do what I love and wish more people would follow their dreams. I love The Nest – it’s one of my favourite places to be. It’s where I laugh the most, make my clients laugh, and I get to be creative and make others feel beautiful. I love to be around people who are inspiring and also those who I can inspire. It seems to have a snowball effect – the more we can inspire others the more it inspires us.


Salon Coordinator

Charlie’s wing-woman of the admin world, the bubbly voice on the phone, the helpful replies on our emails and the beautiful face at the front desk. Jess has been at The Nest since the first day we expanded.

Starting out as an apprentice, but realizing that customer service and salon coordination was more interest than in hair itself, her knowledge of hairdressing and understanding of how clients feel as well as their needs makes Jessamy such a crucial part of our brand and team culture. We’ve loved seeing Jess grow into such an important role in the salon.


Head Colourist

The Nest Hair Boutique’s head stylist, Kaleigh started out in the early Nest days and brings not only, an incredible skill set, but a beautiful personality. Her “kill them with kindness” mentality is very admirable and makes her a pure pleasure whether your having your hair done by her or working next to her. She’s pretty hard not to love. Kaleigh is your girl if you’re looking for a beautiful natural colour and a salon experience where you can relax.
