Hair Heroes Hairdressing Scholarship

Frank Burgemeestre

Frank moved from Perth to Melbourne in the early sixties. Frank did his apprenticeship with a master cutter from London. Frank furthered his hairdressing education at Vidal Sassoon’s and Trevor Sorbie in London, Mod’s Hair and Jacques Dessange in Paris, Aldo Coppola in Milan and John Sahag in New York.

Frank had the ability to mesh techniques of English hairdressing with the sensuality of European hairdressing, thus developing his own cutting techniques and his own salon brand EFBEE  in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. He worked with companies such as L’Oreal, Goldwell and Aveda, who contracted Frank to provide training and demonstrations at national and international events.

Frank is the reason I got into hairdressing. In 1989, my father would not allow my 2 older sisters, who were hairdressers at the time, to go to a hairdressing seminar. My sisters begged me to go with them. So, at 14, I rather reluctantly escorted them to the seminar.

Frank was presenting the seminar. I was inspired by the way he transformed his models, it was magical. This moment was when I considered to become a hairdresser. As we were heading home that night, I asked my sister’s boss for a job and from that time onwards I started my career in hairdressing.

Thank you, Frank!
