About Us

Duffy salons boast over 60 years experience in Melbourne, now one of Australia's longest serving salons having originated in 1954.

The salons were founded by James Duffy, a man that was inspired by hair and the ability to provide an individual the power to express themselves. James continues to work with the team as our mentor and inspiration.

The Duffy Philosophy has always been to ensure our clients are satisfied in a forever evolving environment of fashion and cutomer service and as time changes so do we. Our mantra states, life is about being yourself, feeling free to express and say what you want, and we guarantee you will leave our salons doing just that.

"Enjoy your salon experience"

"If you can do what you love for a living, you'll never work another day in your life."


There was something addictive about the atmosphere of a hair competition held back in 2001, and in amongst all of the hype and energy, Bo Guner discovered his life's passion to 'create superstars on a daily basis'.

Kick starting his career as an apprentice with Duffy's at the age of 16, Bo's love for hair developed and his drive to make people look and feel good about themselves became a daily goal; and today as a salon owner and hair extraordinaire, he prides his practice on ensuring all clients enter the salon with the assurance that they will each be provided with the attention and care they need and deserve.

When he's not in the salon doing his thing, Bo is out and about scoping new products and techniques so that he can continue to provide his clients with the newest and best in the ever evolving world of hair. The dynamic team at Duffy's Niddrie are always keen to further their skills and Bo is constantly encouraging their development.

An active member of the Schwarzkopf Professional Hairdressing Association and proud recipient of an award for Outstanding Customer Service in 2009, which has all come naturally to Bo because 'If you can do what you love for a living, you'll never work another day in your life'.
