Meet the team


Philip Barwick

The Harley Davidson riding Chihuahua owner. The ex-metal worker turned award winning stylist and salon owner who became one of the most recognised names in the global hairdressing industry.  Philip Barwick is no doubt one of a kind. Philip walks to work grateful he got that one break… the one that means he gets to express himself creatively everyday, whether it be on the salon floor, back stage at fashion week runway events in Sydney and New York or on the world hairdressing education stage. #hairdressingisfun

Roger Bowshall

Incredibly proud of all his achievements at Muse, Roger, stylist, sometimes-colourist, CFO, COO, and general busybody is the brains behind the business. But when not at the salon Roger loves nothing more than stopping across the road and enjoying a chilled Sake paired with some delicious sashimi in his favorite Japanese restaurant, Toko… A far cry from the days he was spotted sporting a Mohican out in Surry Hills (but we’re not supposed to know that!).

Rachel Busby

When head colour technician Rachel isn’t colouring the heads of Sydney’s residents you might spot her at her favourite Surry Hills eatery Longrain, or down the front at a Gramatik’s gig. When she’s taking a break from her busy work calendar (as Rachel is an International Redken Colour Artist). Rachel loves to relax by reading her favourite fashion blogs and admiring the style of her favourite fashionista, Olivia Palermo.

Ariel Azzimonti

Ariel is a virtuous talent with a big smile who is always ready to accomplish beautiful hair. Starting his career at 17 years of age in Buenos Aires Argentina his journey is one of passion and development. Now his 18 years of experience have taken him from the top salons in Palermo Buenos Aires to working on high end fashion campaigns, editorials for Elle, Vogue. Ariel has also created hair designs for commercials, movies, theatre productions. Sydney was his next adventure arriving 6 years ago and he instantly fell in love with the beaches.
Clearly Ariel loves working on every aspect of hairdressing believing with hair cutting and colour design he is intuitively guided, following the natural character of each clients individual hair to emphasize beauty.
Ariel is also passionate about music, you may spot him playing saxophone at funky gigs around Sydney or perhaps just cruising the coast in his classic 79’ MGB.

Andrew Craig

Coordinator, counsellor and human vault… No one has more strings to their bow professionally than the Muse salon lynchpin, Andrew. With his Muses cited as Edward Scissorhands and Robert Smith of The Cure… it’s no wonder that working in a hairdressing salon seems to have been his calling! He sculpts a mean Brow too.
