More Than Just A Salon

Gavin and Karen Pound have been caring for the hairdressing needs of the people in the South West since 1976 and, when you visit their salon, their aim is for you to enjoy the experience.

Penthouse has been a family business for Gavin and Karen Pound since its inception , with both children, (Lisa and  Daniel) having been apprenticed to the salon, although now Daniel is pursuing other challenges.

This family atmosphere and the ambience appeals to families of all kinds  – with an emphasis on making each client feel that they also belong to this family by offering  excellent quality hairdressing with friendly service in a fun atmosphere.

Gavin says “… a salon visit should achieve more than just a simple hair cut. We are here to find out exactly what your needs are and create a look that is both fashionable and practical, at the same time as being pampered and relaxed.”

As professionals and as employers, we are committed to both our clients and our staff.

From the first consultation with plunger coffee or herbal tea and a relaxing head massage you will feel comfortable and at ease in the friendly atmosphere at Penthouse Hairdressing.

For our staff, to ensure they are confident in their talents, we are committed to ongoing training and personal development.  This helps job satisfaction which ensures that clients can rely on them for the very best service.

Over the years we have trained over 28 apprentices and offer our staff programs that include Personnel Management and Customer Service in addition to hairdressing training. 

This is achieved through monthly “Intercoiffure” training in Perth, regular company sponsored seminars and weekly “in-salon” training.

Penthouse Hairdressing is a member of Intercoiffure Australia….. which is a guarantee of quality hairdressing.


Come and be pampered – you deserve the very best “look” and our aim is to ensure that you hear 
“Hello Gorgeous”
when you leave the salon.

You are always welcome to drop by and chat with the staff about your needs with no obligation.
