My name is Helen Weiss. I was born in Sydney Australia in 1959. I had an uneventful upbringing, all the good bits coming after I left school at 15.
I tried Seven Hill Art College after we moved to the Gold Coast in 1976. I gave up after 1 year and my father sent me to Surfers Paradise with "Don't come home without a job.” I came home with an apprenticeship in Hairdressing where I threw my arty nature at it with a passion. Working all day and clubbing till the wee hours I had a blast. I became an award-winning operator and opened 3 different salons over time.
