Our story

Madame Me Me’s for Hair is the vision of experienced hairstylists Brett Wise and Lee Hayward.

With a desire to live and work in Hervey Bay, they saw an opportunity to bring an urban, but highly personalised, hair experience to the people of Hervey Bay.  

Brett and Lee aim to create a luxurious salon experience for all their clients. They want you to feel comfortable and confident to discuss your hairstyling needs so that you are happy with your experience at Madame Me Me’s for Hair.

You can look forward to a complimentary glass of champagne, a latte, cappuccino or flat white, while you relax in the beautiful décor of Madame Me Me’s.

With the knowledge that comes from decades of experience you are assured that you’re in the best of expert hands. Their cutting and colour skills are highly sought after ……. their professional finish on hair is exceptional……… their reputation is unquestionable.

During the past 31 years, I have been proud to call Brett my hairdresser. There is a good reason for my devotion to his work – the professionalism, personal care, and expert attention to detail that Brett provides has been matched by no other. Brett gets to know his clients well and the environment at the salon is happy and professional. Going to his salon is comfortable and a pleasure. As a School Principal, I needed to always present myself well as I represented my community. With his personal care, expert cut, colour and style, I knew that I presented myself at my best.

Di C. Client since 1991

I have been a client of Lee’s for over 15 years. During this time he has always, on every single occasion, made me feel incredibly important. He is an exceptionally good stylist and colourist. He is extremely professional, making every appointment an experience that I look forward to every 4 weeks. Lee is one of a kind, I’m blessed to have found him all those years ago and will remain a loyal client for many years to come.

Leanne R. Client since 2007

So …. You have finally made the long talked about return to Hervey Bay! Congratulations on your new salon, Madame Me Me’s for Hair. It looks like a trip to Hervey Bay from time to time will be in order if I want to enjoy more relaxing and professional hair sessions with you. … to be continued

Laura Client since 1997

I consider myself blessed to have had wonderful Brett Wise as my hairdresser for the past 27 years. He was recommended to me by a work colleague, who assured me that Brett was “simply the best”, adding that his wife was extremely fussy, and she wouldn’t go to anyone else. Having found the hairdresser of my dreams, I stuck to him! By my calculations, Brett must have styled my hair more than 325 times, and I cannot remember a single occasion when I was anything other than delighted with the result.

Brett and his partner, Lee Hayward, are true professionals who maintain the highest possible standards. They are both extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the hair industry, with a level of skill and artistry that guarantees uniformly outstanding results for their lucky clients. Over the years they have established several very stylish and beautifully appointed salons, which have been a delight to visit. They are both charming, urbane, discreet professionals, who go out of their way to make each one of their clients feel valued and special. Brett is so much more to me than a fabulous hairdresser – after 27 years, he is a very dear and highly trusted friend, as is Lee. I cannot imagine life without them!

Jennie P. Client since 1996

Lee Hayward has been my hairdresser for the past 15 years. Each time I see him I walk out with 'TV hair' and feeling a million dollars. It's rare to find someone who is an exceptional stylist, pampers you and creates an atmosphere where you really do feel better when you leave. But that sums up Lee! I really couldn't recommend him more highly.

Loretta K Client for 15+ years

Lee has been my hairdresser for over a decade and has consistently done an excellent job. I have really thick hair and there is a *lot* of it. Lee has given me confidence to try styles I would never have considered previously, because he manages my hair so well. Even going from short hair to long hair no longer has that ‘awkward’ growing out stage. Lee is very knowledgeable and talented; he will work with you to get the look you want and give guidance where needed. Lee became my hairdresser on the recommendation of my Mum, and I have never looked back. My two sons now go to Lee as well. It’s like a social outing or a visit to family. Brett and Lee are warm and welcoming and have a beautiful salon with impeccable service. I can’t recommend them highly enough!
