The Staff

Meet our friendly experienced crew, here to help make you feel like the legend you are! 


Danie California 

Proud owner and mastermind behind Sister Margaret's. With over a decade on the tools Danie loves her craft. When she made the move from fashion to hair it was a natural transition that has allowed her to continue using her unique skill set while still being creative on a daily basis. 

Danie wanted to create a safe space for all of her guests to come and enjoy. Taking great care to carefully select every element that entered the store. Having a non-gendered pricelist and a 100% cruelty free approach to her product selection was imperative, thus was born the core values of Sister Margaret's.

A master barber that loves a good fade but is also more than comfortable working with all types of curls, creating easy wear colours or bold vibrant impact colours. 

Danie is also a proud geek with an extensive collection of comics and figures, and is more than a little obsessed with Marvel and Game of Thrones. If you like to deep dive into fan theories while getting your hair cut, then welcome home!
