I'm thinking that maybe instead of ringing around salons in Australia, we should be trying it from a different angle - asking the leading salons in NYC (including Devachan) if they've had any aussie stylists come through and train with them, then find those stylists in aus.
Whaddya reckon? Worth a try?
I doubt Devachan/US salons will reply, but it is at least worth a try.
