Our Team


Owner | Creative Director

Larissa is a second generation and Certificate IV qualified hairdresser and makeup artist with an eye for detail and a flair for creativity. She has worked in events marketing before coming back to the fold and expanding the family hair salon to include a second and third business including Rebecca Oates. She is also the WA Educator for Yuko Hair Straightening..

Larissa employs an avant-garde approach to her craft, with a reliance on a strong knowledge of fundamentals and an ongoing interest in education.

“I like learning about people and my love of hair comes from an understanding of their lifestyle and personality. I want to create a bespoke style that suits the individual. From colour to cut to styling to make-up, it’s about the whole look, not just for the day you leave the salon but right up until the next time you sit in my chair.”


Senior Stylist

Joey is originally from Wales in the UK but has now settled in Perth. He has been hairdressing for almost 10 years and absolutely loves being a stylist and colourist.

Joey has worked for Toni & Guy in Cardiff, Wales and other renowned salons in the UK and Maurice Meade in Perth City. Before joining the Rebecca Oates team in 2016 Joey spent over a year working in a salon specialising in balayage and blondes. This year Joey had the opportunity to assist 5x Australian Hairdresser of the Year Frank Apostolopoulos on stage and behind the scenes at the Wella Remix launch.

“My passion is styling long hair and colouring, particularly blondes and balayage.”


Senior Stylist

Libbie has been a constant in the Rebecca Oates team since early 2014, having just moved to Australia 5 months prior from the UK. She has been hairdressing for over a decade and has loads of industry experience. Her passions in the trade are colouring and cutting hair, especially crafting sharp, blunt bobs.

Libbie is effervescent and approachable, she can talk to anyone. Her loyal clientele have followed her journey from adapting to a new country far from family and friends, to motherhood and continuing her career in hairdressing. If you book an appointment with Libbie, you leave as a friend (with exceptional hair).

Katie Francis

Junior Stylist

I have always loved watching hairdressers creating beautiful hair colours and styles and that's what inspired me to become a hairdresser. I love watching the transformations from when someone comes in to when they leave. I'm very creative and I like problem solving so I think hairdressing will be a great fit for me.

So far my favourite thing to do is styling. I really like curling and braiding hair.

I aspire to become a talented hairdresser and to learn many skills and techniques including how to match the perfect cut, colour and style to suit a person.
