Matthew is a cutting and styling specialist who prides himself on his ability to give anything a go. He particularly enjoys teaching others: “What gives me a buzz is seeing someone’s confidence grow after I have shown them how to do something.” His fun and friendly nature is beloved by students and clients alike, as is his client-first approach. “I always seem to have a few famous people pop into my chair each year, however each and every client is a celebrity in my eyes.” Rumour has it that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a big fan of his Instagram.
Matthew joined the Edwards and Co. team as internal educator for cutting and styling in 2017, a position he calls “the job of a lifetime”. His love for hairdressing revolves around creativity and the excitement of the work. He loves building relationships with clients and hopes to build a platform through which he can give back to the next generation of industry professionals. “I have been lucky to work with so many industry leaders and I am now in a position to give back myself via education. I love watching people get excited about their work again.”
Matthew’s work has been featured in Marie Claire, VOGUE and other print media as well as on MamaMia. He has worked closely with premium brand Oribe Australia and was asked to launch Olaplex No.7 to the media.
