Celebrant his curls!


Curly hair comes in various shapes, sizes, textures and types. Curly hair exists across numerous work fields, so we are making it our mission at Rumbie & Co, to show you the vast diversity of curly hair across job occupations.

Let us introduce you to Oliver, a regular at Rumbie & Co. Oliver is an experienced marriage and funeral celebrant with years of training and experience, allowing him to deal with any and all situations. His warmth, humour and intuition will provide you with the comfort and relief you need. With particular attention to detail, Oliver prides himself on creating ceremonies that are truly engaging.

Hi Oliver! 

How did you get into marrying and burying people?

I became a marriage celebrant in 2014 mainly because I was sick of going to boring ceremonies that I didn’t feel really connected with. The couples I tend to attract as clients seem to be ones who are looking for a unique ceremony that captures them and helps represent what they have as a couple.

I have also been working in the funeral space as a celebrant and a planner. The funeral space is one I am very passionate about. The industry in Australia is changing and companies are now needing to be more transparent with their pricing and influences they have over grieving families. Planning a funeral can be very stressful for families who are in a vulnerable and often very emotional state. The most rewarding part of this role is being able to create something that truly represents the person who has passed

What’s one thing most people don’t know about being a celebrant?

Registration time is long. We have to do additional study to remain registered each year.

Being a celebrant is traditionally not always a young person’s career choice, would you encourage young recruits to the industry?

I would encourage anyone, regardless of age to pursue a career as a celebrant. It’s extremely rewarding and requires a vast array of skills and strengths.

Could you share what is and has been like being a curly haired guy?

Everyone thinks that curls are easy to maintain and in some ways they are. But for me, I always wanted to have those great haircuts I used to see guys getting. Flat tops, or even just cool styles with straight hair. I used to hate going to get my haircut because no-one I saw when I was a kid knew how to cut curls so it was always a very disappointing experience. I used to get all kinds of insults because of my hair. Noodle nut, Maggi noodle head, Curly Sue to list a few examples. ( ☹ we are so sorry you had this experience)

How do you suggest we bridge these gaps (if any) for curly haired guys like you?

Help educate parents to teach kids how to manage curls.

If you could give any advice to your younger self, what would that be?

Stop brushing your hair. Get a good product and let the hair go free.

And lastly, what is your curly hair routine?

Wake up, have a laugh at what sleep might have done to my hair overnight. Twice a week, I cleanse and style my hair while wet, shake the hair around and then see what happens. (curly guy magic)

Escape the hecticness of life. On arrival, you’ll get a welcoming visarome massage around your hairline using a choice of diluted essential oils to help you relax.

Rumbie & Co curl experts offer comprehensive consultations, understanding your curl needs and working with you to deliver great curls in a creative, relaxed and safe atmosphere.

Hair should be clean, detangled and dry before the appointment as curls are distorted when the hair is wet. An extra charge may be incurred for detangling and rescheduling in other cases.

If there are any hair extensions, cornrows or plaits, please remove them prior to the appointment. Alternatively you can book for an extension removal prior to your desired services.

We endeavour to have your hair done within the stipulated time frame, however, with curly hair there are variables beyond our control that could extend your time in the salon.

1. Seeing that curly hair is the new phenomenon for most of us, some of our patrons require TLC and our team endeavours to ensure all patrons have their questions answered and are set to win on their curly journey.

2. With varying hair textures come varying time allocations for drying too.

3. As some of our curl specialists are developing their growing skills, more time may be needed to perfect your style.

For this, we ask that you are patient with us. If time is of the essence, we recommend booking in with our more experienced specialists.

Regardless of the feedback, we welcome your highlights (pun intended) on how well we have executed anything as well as growlights on what areas we can develop and how so we can work at being the curl salon you envision.

Together, we can figure this out.

While we strive to deliver to your expectations and beyond, we do need your help in this regard. This means, we would love for you to talk to us before, during and after your service. If you didn’t feel comfortable during your time in the salon, please feel free to call or email [email protected]

We would arrange a consultation with a stylist of your choice, in this way we can find a way forward. You can also be booked in with another curl specialist of your preference based on your needs.

If your curls appear looser than usual after a service, the product may be too heavy for your curls. Please don’t be upset, your hair can be washed again and styled using a lighter product and voila just like that your curls are bouncy again. Please note, no one head of hair is the same and there are definitely options

You can ALWAYS speak up. This is a revolution. We can partner well together with communication. If you are not understanding anything, in pain, uncomfortable about anything, please speak up.
