Bill Tsiknaris, a seasoned professional when it comes to Hair Awards…  

With his 6′ 6″, 120kg muscular frame, Bill Tsiknaris looks like he would be more at home in a WWE wrestling ring than a Hair Salon.


But make no mistake, Bill has been Queensland hair dresser of the year twice and a finalist for Australian Hair Dresser of the Year. Bill has too many accolades to mention here and has just added another after Tsiknaris Hair has just been announced finalist for Salon team of the Year at the 2018 Hair Expo Awards.

Bill approached us to shoot his for his 2018 Hair Expo collection. To say we were excited was an understatement. After our first phone conversation it was apparent that Bill was a seasoned professional when it comes to hair awards. Oh and did I mention, with his dulcet tones he could definitely be an announcer on Smooth FM.

Bill’s preparation was meticulous and with Chris Tsiknaris on colour work, it was extraordinary. No only is Bill a hair man, he is also talented photographer. He understood the process, our pre-production, the model selection, styling and lighting. With his experience he has a great comprehension of what it takes to create winning collections.


Aside form his own talents, Bill’s other secret weapon is his talented fiancé, Brodie-Lee Stubbins, director of Rockstar Salon and the current Queensland Hair Dresser of the year. To say these guys are a power couple is an understatement. It was great watching these two heavy weights of the industry bounce ideas off each other throughout the shoot.

It was certainly a great pleasure working with Bill and his team, and we are even more excited that they have been announced Salon Team of the Year finalist at 2018 Hair Expo awards.

Any photoshoot is a team effort with many working parts to create a successful collection. Anniss+Barton are here to help. From pre-production & story/mood boarding, we have a professional team of fashion stylists, make up artists and videographers. We can even organise the catering.

The collaboration starts the moment you contact us – your success is our success – cliché aintit 🙂
