Questions With Nic! Our Guest Donna Donna Model.
We recently photographed the gorgeous Nic from Sculpt Hair in Adamstown. Nic is a stunning model but she's more than a pretty face! She's a successful local entrepreneur.
What do you love about being an entrepreneur?
The best part of owning my own business is that I get to run it exactly how I want to. I have managed to build an amazing team around me who are wonderful at what they do. It has also allowed me to have some flexibility in my work life while my children are young.
What are the best parts of your job?
Being a hairstylist is honestly such a rewarding career. I love all of it. Most of my clients I now consider as friends. You form such a bond with the people in your chair that you see each month. It’s so social and fun.
How many years have you been operating?
Heading into my 13th year as a salon owner. The time has absolutely flown by.
Hair wasn’t my first choice but I fell into an apprenticeship when I completed my HSC. 23 years later, I cannot imagine doing anything else.
What’s your fave thing about Newcastle?
Absolutely love how our city has progressed over the past 5 years. There’s so many great restaurants, boutiques, beaches. It’s such a great place to live and hard to pick out one fave thing.
What’s your fave Newcastle Beach?
Bar Beach for sure
What is your fave Newcastle restaurant?
Love the food at The Flotilla Wickham, absolutely delicious
Fave watering hole?
I can’t go past Merewether surfhouse for the view and of course the cocktails
What do you love about Donna Donna clothing? ;)
Donna Donna clothing is so versatile, you can wear it casually or dress it up. The cut and material is so comfortable.
What was your least favourite and also your favourite thing about being the Donna Donna model?
I’m so flattered to be a DD model, I’ve never “modelled” before, so it’s been a really fun but slightly nerve wracking experience!
I love that I’ve been able to help support another local Newcastle business with an amazing owner. It’s great for women to support each other.
What would you pick to gift your mother or friend from the Donna Donna website?
I’ve been eyeing off the Paloma dress for my mum. I can see it being a wardrobe staple for the summer months.
What is your go-to Donna Donna staple piece?
It’s hard to go past the Classic linen pant and the weave top. So versatile, you can wear with flats for during the day or with heels and nice jewellery for the evening.
Thank you so much for your time today. We adored having your as the face of Donna Donna and I am sure many of the girls love coming to Sculpt for their hair, I know I do!
Thank you so much for having me be a small part of Donna Donna. I absolutely love the brand and am so happy I can support it in any way xx
