Rob Petrino, Co-director and Senior Stylist
Growing up with parents in the industry, Rob has been part of the hairstyling world for most of his life.

Favourite Product: “I love to experiment with the Goldwell line. The products mix well together and achieve beautiful results.”
Ken Petrino, Co-director and Senior Stylist
Over the past 40 years, Ken has become an expert at styling hair, managing salons, and working with people. He started out as a junior stylist in the 1970s, opened his own salon in the 1980s, and styles hair and manages the business side of SASS today. Ken’s friendly, professional service and his expertise at cutting hair keep his clients coming back again and again.
Favourite Product: “I like KMS Sea Salt and TG Root Boost. They’re both great at creating extra lift and body without stickiness.”
Rosa Petrino, Floor Manager
Rosa has worked in salons for nearly 30 years, and she likes the challenge of keeping things running smoothly at SASS. Although her job keeps her busy, she loves talking with the customers and ensuring they’re happy with SASS’s services.
Favourite Product: “We use only use SOL products for our spray tanning treatments. They’re paraben-free, they were voted the best in the industry by Marie Claire, and they give our clients natural looking tans that last for about two weeks.”
Kristy Taylor, Senior Stylist
Kristy has been styling hair at SASS for more than 10 years. As a Senior Stylist, she’s a skilled hairdresser, and she’s particularly good at up-styling. In 2013, she was selected by De Lorenzo to be a member of their “Vision Team” for NSW. As part of that role, she now teaches courses and helps train the next generation of stylists.
Favourite Product: “I love the De Lorenzo line—the products are all humidity resistant to hold your style. They use a lot of natural ingredients to nourish your hair.”
