Biography: Here's the Word on Kim Astro

Kim is the owner and Artistic Director of Chroma Hair Studio in Brisbane; opened her first salon 30 years ago, after working at a few salons in Brisbane and in country NSW along the way. Over the past 30 years her hairdressing skills have seen her excel in many areas of the industry including her biggest passion training and competitions. One great memory was participating at the World Hairdressing Championships in Tokyo in 1992 as part of the Australian support team.  Chroma Hair Studio has been built with the philosophy of championing classic modernity in an intimate, sophisticated environment. The studio is now recognized by the biggest names in Australia for its level of expertise, award winning staff training and most importantly its care for customers.


Dedicated to the craft, Chroma was awarded as Best in Salon Training in 2016 and Finalists for QLD State Salon of the Year at the Australian Hair Industry Awards. Kim has lead her teams to BHBEXPO since it started 6 years ago, has built strong teams with many trophies won, most importantly her staff have gained much confidence which is super rewarding. Recently at Brisbane Hair & Beauty Expo 2019 we were thrilled to have been recognised and awarded 3 trophies: 1st Place in Futuristic Colour (Kim),   3rd in Contemporary Colour (Kim), and 3rd Apprentice Ladies Cutting (Bella)

Kim worked with Matrix as a Community Show Ambassador since 2010, presenting numerous shows and workshops throughout QLD and NSW to stylists and salon owners. Kim appeared at Hair Expo in 2012 and 2018 as a Platform Artist and continues educating for Matrix. Kim was chosen as one of the 1st HOT TEAM Members for Matrix, which she gained many extra skills mentored by the Australian Design Team. Since 2016, Kim has been part of the Matrix Australian Design Team: a hand-picked team of only 12 Australian hairdressers who travel the country to educate and inspire. This has seen her presenting to hairdressers across Australia. Teaching the fundamentals of cutting called CRAFT CUTTING and expert coloring techniques presenting BALAYAGE ME, which Kim has been extremely excited to present for the last 5 years.

It has been an honor to work alongside international and national stylists at Hair Biz Forum in Brisbane each year. It’s the greatest pleasure assisting industry leaders; learning from each other is one of the most amazing parts of our industry..

Photoshoots are one of the most inspiring and creative aspects of our business. Having your work published in national and international magazines is arguably the greatest tangible kind of recognition a hairdresser can receive. We’ve graced the pages of Brisbane Bride Magazine, and Kim’s High Performance Men's collection was featured in 17 international publications including Art Coiffure (Russia), Hair (Thailand), H-Trends (Italy) and Alto Peinados (Mexico) & America.

“We are firm believers that education is the key to success, and so are constantly seeking out new ideas in creativity and business. Our staff regularly attended high level courses by industry leaders. We continue to challenge ourselves to improve in all aspects of our profession, so that we can inspire and engage our staff, our clients and our local community.”


We're all looking forward to seeing all of the great work Kim will continue to show the world created with iCandy Scissors & Hair Tools.
