Born and raised in London’s East End, Leonard Mattis started his hairdressing career in a small local salon on East Ham High Street. His talent and passion saw him quickly move on to the highly acclaimed Smiths Salon, located in the heart of Soho, London.
Moving to Australia in 1998, Leonard began working as Artistic Director for award winning hairdresser Antony Whitaker, and in 2002 founded Leonard Mattis Studio. The Studio was a private oasis in the middle of Sydney that offered style, service and an experience unlike any other.
To celebrate ten years in operation 2012 saw the studio expand and add a second level – a multi-purpose site that provided a rare fusion of local art and high-end styling. Whilst still functioning as a working salon the studio became a sought after exhibition space by emerging talent wanting to showcase their work outside of traditional gallery display.
Extending on the success of his Sydney studio 2017 sees the launch his new venture M Global – a product and service provider guiding and supporting others to connect to their true nature.
