Kevin Murphy


I have known Andre and Sandra Faiva for the past 18 months in my role as fashion editor of the Courier-Mail and now QWeekend magazine as well as being my personal hairdresser. Andre has always offered me great advice on my hair and is always up for a chat about current hair and fashion trends. I always find him a pleasure to be around.
