The Hair & Makeup Studio opened in 2014 and has become one of the best salons on The Northern Beaches, located in Collaroy Plateau, Sydney.

In 2019, 2020 & 2021, The HMU Studio was a finalist in The Most Outstanding Hairdressers category at The Local Business Awards and our owner Natasha Lewis was awarded Most Outstanding Business Person of the Year 2019.


The Hair & Makeup Studio is a fun & relaxed space where we love to make our clients look and feel good.  


At The HMU Studio we are highly qualified hairdressers and makeup artists, who have a passion to help others look and feel their best self.  We are highly trained in cutting, colouring, balayage, event hair styling, makeup and we continually work together as a team to make sure we offer the most up to date trends and products.

We sell online in our shop a Makeup Book called 'Makeup Made Simple' we also have gift vouchers you can download for that special someone and we have our blog on everything from business to hair to makeup to life.

We love being involved in our community, often having fundraisers to raise money for local charities.  We have donated to The Northern Beaches Women's Shelter, Headspace Brookvale, Share the Dignity, Mission Australia, Cancer Council and we have also donated many gift vouchers to our local schools and charity balls.  Tash our owner is a massive advocate for Mental Health where she works along with Beyond Blue to start the conversation about mental health in Sydney having spoken at The Iconic, National Australia Bank, Older Women's Network NSW & F45 Dee Why.

We also know as hairdresser's we have a lot of rubbish, so we are a part of Sustainable Salon Group.  We recycle everything from our hair, our metals, our chemicals, our paper, our plastics all to help save our environment!

We are a registered COVID Safe Business where we follow all NSW Government guidelines for Hairdressing Salons and keep ourselves updated on any NSW Government rules and regulations as they change.

Thank you again, Jackie."  Jackie Lonsdale.

"For the past 2 months I've been lucky to spend 6 mornings getting my hair & makeup done at The HMU Studio with Tash for our TV show The Human Element.  I cannot recommend Tash and her team highly enough, they're not only brilliant at making you look and feel fabulous, your time spent in the chair feels like spending time with one of your best friends, you'll laugh, you'll cry and learn some cool stuff too." Nicole Morris CEO Human Tribe 

"Just sending a 'Thank you' for the great hair and makeup last weekend.  My husband was especially happy!  I was unsure that my hair would stay in place as the wedding was on the beach and it was very windy but you were absolutely right, it did!  It even looked good the next day, for my journey back to England, with the grips removed.  If I should be so lucky to return to Collaroy I will definitely be back to see you.  Many thanks, Brenda."
