Owner & Senior Stylist
Tina Devine was born to be a hairdresser. The daughter of a hairdresser, Tina used to get in trouble stealing her mum’s clippers and creating new “dos” for the kids at school. From her first pair of scissors, she knew that hairdressing was what she wanted to do.
Tina’s passion for great hair was embedded after she travelled the world cutting hair in London and as a principal stylist on five-star cruise liners. Tina is the founder and owner of Soul Hair Design. She started the hair salon back in 1998 and has watched it grow to become a core part of the Wilston/Grange/Newmarket community.
Tina is a definite hands-on owner. She loves creating gorgeous hair and still gets a buzz every time a client loves their new hairstyle. Over the years she has seen styles come and go – but believes the foundation of great hair is still exceptional styling skill combined with listening to the needs of her clients. But more importantly, Tina sees her salon as being a place where everyone feels welcomed and at home. A place where each person is listened to and their needs and wishes are taken into account. A place where each hairstyle reflects the individual.
When not in the salon, Tina can be found enjoying time with her kids.
Mel is a highly talented stylist and colourist, with decades of experience behind her. As featured in Marie Claire and a 2017 QLD State Finalist for the Loreal Colour Trophy, Mel is passionate about colour and the difference the right hair colour can make to a person. She excels at colour correction, Balayage hair and major colour transformations. She works with your natural features and skin tones to enhance your beauty rather than work against it.
Before joining Soul Hair, Mel owned and operated a number of salons in rural Western Australia and Perth. After selling her salons and moving to QLD, Mel wanted to become part of thriving local community salon in Brisbane, which is why she was attracted to Soul Hair.
Mel loves doing the hair of different generations within a family and is an expert in fine hair styling and colour.
When not in the salon, Mel is a talented mix media and watercolour artist.
Paisley is a young, friendly and easy-going stylist who grew up in the industry as the daughter of a hairdresser. Passionate about the beach and beach culture, Paisley excels at natural style hair and beach waves. She is brilliant at blow dry, as well as foils, Ombre and Balayage hair colouring.
Starting her career at a local Brisbane salon, Paisley was attracted to Soul Hair Design because of our superior product ranges. In this time, she has worked under Tina’s expert guidance and is now a popular choice amongst our clients in ladies hair styling.
Paisley is also our resident men’s cut expert and is highly skilled at fade cuts and super clean cuts for men.
When not in the salon (or the beach), Paisley is owned by a very spoiled Devon Rex cat named Abe.
