Freelance Hairstylist. Editorial. Weddings.

Once I was young, in the country, living in the midst of horses. Enamoured by the Horse and Mane, I spent hours and days with the tangible beauty of the animal's hair in my hands, with great wonder at the raw and humble essence of hair. Hair became my passion, and having hair in my hands became my home.

I am Elise Idiens, and over the fifteen years of hairdressing that has been since my move from the country, I have had the good fortune to be mentored by the world's most gifted artists in the realms of Hairdressing and Colouring. In that time, I have never forgotten the simple, humble, pleasure of having a person's hair in my hands. Rather than seeking the glamour and accolades, I want to share that experience with anyone who wants the utmost attention to detail that a hairdresser can offer. Whether a wedding hair do, a colour and cut, or a fashion produced style for photographic or media purposes, my aim is to bring my essence and experience to you. My blog is aimed to communicate through images the artistry of my work, and the types of styles I have achieved.

David has a fascination with light and heights. 
Life happens that he is a very skilled abseiler and with all the early sunrises he views with his line of work, means the light often touches his shoulders way before we have even thought of lifting our eyelids to the morning light.  

David's style was achieved with Kevin Murphy Anti-gravity + Kevin Murphy Gritty Business


Graziher - Wild and Free Photography Essay

Raised on a fourth generation grazier property located at Gooloogong. NSW. For the past fifteen years the city has been my home to practice my craft in Hairdressing. I always crave to be in tune with the land and it's surroundings. Hence I go in search of Austrailana events and environments. I was drawn to photographing this event, the White Cliffs Gymkhana and Rodeo that is held annually over the last weekend of April. This imagery is all shoot on 35mm and Medium format film and my wriiten experience and imagery has been graciously published in the beautiful Graziher Magazine. A magazine supporting and inspiring the woman on the Land. x

She was anxious by the love of him. By what he would see, by what he would hear, most of all by what by what they would taste. The delicate tender kiss of "I Do"

MANE AND TALES POP UP Gooloogong Log Cabin Markets.

    Mane and Tales Pop Up
Gooloogong is my home town located in the Grazier country in the Central West of New South Wales, Australia. 
The reasoning for my Pop Up's is to encourage others to fulfil their dreams in creative talents. Encourage communication and social drive to what is a very quite yet humble community. By doing Pop Up's I hope to reduce the rate of mental illness throughout Rural Australia. 

 The Gooloogong Log Cabin Markets are held on the second Sunday of every second Month. Please do hesitate to contact me on further details regarding the Market for an appointment, an interest in holding a stall or expressing interest in having a Mane and Tales Pop Up visit your rural community.
