best new salon 2011
Chic, Sexy, Fluid, Flawless….togninis hair skin body is a
finalist for the 2011 Best New Salon at the Hair Expo Awards.
Having brought home the trophy in 1998 when the Elizabeth Street salon was first opened, the pressure is high to once again wow the national hair industry with the fabulous new salon on Wandoo Street. The new salon has been designed to outdo Elizabeth Street - smaller in size it appears far larger with all areas streamlined to create a more stunning and usable space. Embracing natural light, the salon has over 17 meters of glass frontage, floor to ceiling mirrors, and the use of stone, gloss white and black surfaces. Each area combines the high energy buzz with a need for serenity, creating an indulgent place to relax and unwind. Cross all your fingers and toes…the winner is announced June 12! And …. to add to the excitement our very own Jules Tognini at aka has been selected as finalist for New Creative Force 2011 – a prestigious title and the competition is fierce – we are sending all our good luck energy his way! •

She fossicks around antique stores, op shops, markets and car boots to find one off pieces like vintage tea strainers and manicure sets each which are lovely made into one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings, or bracelets. Alicia says she often connects with a piece as do most who buy her work – each stirring a memory from their childhood or some past event.

aka hits markets for cause cuts
They may drench a few unsuspecting individuals
at the basins, but it ain't no act of GOD. 
To make right the SHIT* (super hot individual talent) team of aka togninis hit the St Jerome's Laneway Festival markets mid Feb to help fellow Queenslanders keep their heads above water and raise much needed funds for the Queensland Flood Appeal.  They snipped and cropped and raised over $360 on the day.  The salon wants to thank everyone for their support and to assist the QLD Floods even more togninis matched the dollars raised! •
