Hi, My name is Melinda Smith.


I have been hairdressing for 23 years. During this time I have worked in many facets within this industry.

I completed my four year apprenticeship in Inverell, NSW. Shortly after this I wanted to travel and explore the world so I applied for a position with the London based company Steiner working onboard luxury cruise ships. 

For the next 10 years I got to travel our magnificent world and met many amazing people. The experience that I gained from managing the Day Spa for 8 years was invaluable, co-ordinating a staff of up to 26.

But after 10 years at sea I decided it was time to settle down on land. I had met my now husband David, a pilot and moved to Grafton, NSW to spend more time with him.

I opened my first Salon โ€˜Hair at the Manseโ€™ at our home. It was the old Presbyterian Manse, a magnificent old heritage house that we were renovating. I had a very busy little salon and I loved my clients and my work. Unfortunately the airline my husband was working for closed down and we had to move on. 

In Emerald, our next home, I managed a salon. David and I got married and had amazing wedding with family and friends.

My husband then took a new pilot position in Brisbane, and we went on to have our two beautiful little boys Riley and Cooper. 

In 2013 Davidโ€™s employer moved us to Singapore. This was such as exciting adventure and we loved every minute of it, but unfortunately it wasnโ€™t to be for as long as we had hoped.

We are now ready to make Brisbane our home and Iโ€™m very excited to announce the opening of...

The Ginger & Spice salon is located at 11c/13 Norman Street in Wooloowin, QLD
