About Grace

Grace Vassallo is a Coach, Mentor, Author, Speaker, Hairdresser and Mum.


Grace followed her passion for hair she’s had since an early age to

complete Certificate III in hairdressing in 2000 with Pivot Point Hair Design College in Melbourne. While still learning, Grace was nominated to enter the WorldSkills competition, winning the state competition and making the national competition in Newcastle.

After graduating from the Certificate III course, she commenced working in a small barber shop. After wanting to grow her skills in all areas of hairdressing, she moved to a bigger salon and started growing her clientele. She discovered her passion for customer service whilst growing her clientele.

In 2003, Grace started her own business from home whilst working in

the salon. After having to cut down her workload in the field due to health concerns, Grace moved to the financial services industry for a change of pace. Her passion for hairdressing was well and truly alive and after 5 years she moved to study and gain her Diploma in Life Coaching through The Coaching Institute.

She founded Behind The Hair based on her passion for hairdressing and customer service to assist the salon owners to design their ideal salon business,  grow clientele through an outstanding customer service experience and enjoy the rewards of being a salon owner. Now expanding and helping salon owners around the world, Grace Vassallo International was born.
It’s her mission to create an empowering movement in the industry to help salon owners work less and earn more whilst creating a profitable business and life they love.

She has created methodologies that have been proven to be successful in her own business and she wants to share it with salon owners who don’t have the time or money to keep making the costly mistakes that are holding them back from their full business potential.
