WINNER: Fraser Coast's best hairdresser revealed
TASH'S Hair House has taken out the Fraser Coast's Chronicle's Best Hairdresser online poll. Ten years into her career, Maryborough's Tash Kruske, said she always loved the thought of being a hairdresser when she was younger. When a barber shop in Hervey Bay offered her an apprenticeship at the end of Year 12, she never looked back. Although the 28-year-old can do everything from a blow dry to a spiral, she's a "cuts and colour girl" at heart. "I get very creative with my colours," she said. "Colours are my forte and I like being artistic." From shiny silver and deep burgundy to vibrant magenta, mermaid and cotton candy, Ms Kruske likes to offer clients bold choices. "A lot of my clients give me free rein on their hair which allows me to choose and experiment," she said. "I definitely enjoy colouring more than anything, and cutting."
The young hairdresser said she loved owning her home-based salon. "It is more personal with my clients," she said. "I like talking to my clients - I hear some amazing stories in here." Ms Kruske's newest client, Sam Czerwonka, said she found the hairdresser online. "Over the weekend I searched for the best salon in the Fraser Coast and found the Fraser Coast Chronicle's online survey," Ms Czerwonka said. "Tash popped up a lot and I went through all the comments and thought 'I am definitely coming here.'"
Ms Kruske also waxes and tints eyebrows. While business is thriving, she is always looking to grow. "I am thinking about expanding my beautician's knowledge, even though I am busy enough with what I do," she said. The at-home salon operates from Monday to Saturday and Thursday nights.

Tash's Hair House received 29 per cent of the votes in the Chronicle's online poll. Sass Organics Hair and Beauty reached 22 per cent to come a close second. "I am so thankful for those who voted for me," Ms Kruske said. "I must have a lot more clients who are subscribed to the Chronicle than I realised."
