Professional Beauty Solutions

PBS Sleighs Office Christmas Cubicle


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Professional Beauty Solutions, so much so, that we just had to share this with you.

One of our longest standing team members, Jacqui Catt, who has been with the company for 12 years, is a crazy Christmas fan! You know that really festive co-worker who insists on putting the Christmas tree up in October and wants to play carols on loop from nine-to-five…(every office has ONE of those).

Without a doubt, Christmas is Jac’s favourite time of year. After dropping hints for several years about how she wanted her own Santa’s Workshop in the office, the PBS teamed decided to toss some ideas around and mastermind an epic plan.

But how could we out Christmasfie the most festive co-worker ever? We’d turn her desk into Winter Wonderland on her day off! BOOM!

With the entire team on operation “deck the desk”, we created this masterpiece.

We may be biased, but we think we totally sleighed it!

Needless to say, the highlight was the surprise on Jac’s face when she came into work on Monday.

PBS Joins the Beauty Industry in the Fight Against Cancer


Last month, PBS joined the hair, beauty and barber industries to help raise funds throughout May as part of the ‘Love Your Sister’ charity run by Samuel Johnson, in memory of his sister Connie Johnson.

The team at head office participated in Pyjama Day (yes, that’s right….we were all wearing our  PJ’s to work!) and raised money with a morning tea.

The Love Your Sister is a foundation that started as a breast cancer advocacy group, and are now a whole village that fights all cancers! Their goal? To vanquish cancer so that families can get on with bickering and laughing together. Science holds the key and your donations create freedom for our best researchers to explore their left-of-field ideas without subjecting them to the all-consuming grant cycle.

The fundraising movement was started by siblings, Samuel Johnson and Connie Johnson, to help fight Connie’s terminal diagnosis of breast cancer. Today, Samuel continues his work with the organisation, driving towards a future where we can help cancer sufferers.
