OUR TEAM

KATE

Tao Hair Lounge is owned and managed by Kate Craik. A renowned stylist with a difference.

Leaving school to become a hair stylist was Kate’s passion. She was accepted into the prestigious Servilles Hair Academy in Auckland, founded by Paul De Serville who has an extensive high profile career and was often a part of the learning journey of his students attending his academy.

Kate’s outstanding commitment to her training and the industry was noticed by Paul himself and she was offered a position in what was his newest and most daring salons he had embarked on to date “Spa De Serville”.

After a few years, Kate came to Sydney on her journey to be snapped up by her husband Peter and Gillian Adams Day Spa, a unique salon and spa which pushed the boundaries and set itself apart as a high profile “Urban Spa” located on the north shore of Sydney.

They later moved up to Avoca where they had 4 children, all of whom form part of the TAO name; T-Thomas & Tully, A-Abigail, O-Oliver.

Before purchasing the business Kate always ran a home-based salon whilst the children were younger. With the support of Peter and her talented team of stylists, Kate is committed to listening to not only the clients but also her team ensuring that “together” they are striving to give their best on this journey.

KARINA

I have been hairdressing for over 15 years, with almost 10 of those working with the amazing AVEDA brand.

I love everything that AVEDA encompass, naturally derived colours and products, their support of small communities and their environmental practices. I’m all about natural looking, life-proof colours that blend and grow out well. I love creating boho-inspired, undone styles with loads of texture the most. I also enjoy a good chat!

LILY

I want to be a hairdresser because I feel that hair is such a big part of everyone’s lives.

It is so exciting and rewarding to know that I can change or fix someone’s hair to make them feel happier, and become a more confident version of themselves.
