Dreamt up by two friends, Taylah and Britney envisioned a hair and makeup space with a slower pace, an ease about it where guests left feeling beautiful, inspired and recharged in more ways than one. Three and a half years into their journey at Suukha and what better time to revisit the driving force behind this holistic hair and makeup studio. From the design of the space to the evolution of their vision for Suukha.
With unique backgrounds in haircare, makeup, design and education Taylah and Britney chose to combine their strengths to create a thoughtfully designed studio. Finding inspiration in their own creative endeavours, both founders are passionate travellers and enjoy studying both inside and outside the realms of their profession.
"We wanted to create a unique experience where guests are encouraged to explore the link between inner and outer beauty." - Taylah
"We are so inspired by the local female run businesses in our area and enjoy collaborating with them to continue to evolve Suukha in more ways than one". - Britney
The Design of Suukha
In the thick of very uncertain pandemic times they found their dream place, a light filled studio on the outskirts of Balgowlah. With a clear vision but needing a helping hand to bring everything together they called on friends Leah and Fliss (of Interior Design Studio Bone Made) who danced them through the flow of the space and began collating a neutral palette for them, creating a refreshing antithesis to the busyness of the outside world.
A warm white textural paint from Murobond was applied to the walls, Light timber wishbone chairs, floating shelves and streamlined cabinets gave a clean, Scandinavian feel. A plush boucle armchair, half-moon side tables and a large hexagonal greeting table, both crafted from travertine, brought understated yet luxurious detail to the studio.

"With the help of Bone Made we were able to bring together a very clear vision. Wanting to provide a place that allowed clients to feel at home and at ease, where they could rejuvenate and reset." - Britney
