Minx first opened its doors on 6th July 2009 by Beau Minnett. Beau saw a need to bring together modern & traditional hair styling. She saw so many people having to go to Brisbane or the Gold Coast to get their hair done and decided Toowoomba locals deserved big city style hairdressing & quality service here in their town.
Born in Toowoomba and basically raised on the hairdressing floor, with her mum and grandmother both being hairdressers, Beau knew she wanted to be a hairdresser from a young age & started her hairdressing apprenticeship at the age of 14. She believes it is very important to always keep training and participating in education to keep up with the latest trends. Minx has grown its team from its original 2 staff, to a team of 13. Beau has also created the Minx Method. This makes sure he entire team is consistent and performs service in a similar manner to ensure salon consistency no matter what stylist you see.
Minx had the grand opening of the beautiful Bridal Suite in 2014 and launched Minx Premium Mobile Bridal Services in 2017.
Minx is exclusively a L’Oréal Professionnel salon. L’Oréal Professionnel are at the fore front of the industry, creating & developing new products and colours. They are the leaders in hair fashion & create the path for other brands to follow which they have done for over 100 years. With this said, L’Oréal Professionnel was the perfect fit for Minx.
