About Us

Real Sonder is the creation of dynamic husband and wife team Eric and Wendy. While bringing over 40 years of combined experience to the salon, each one is a highly acclaimed creative stylist in their own right.

Wendy has been recognised as one of Melbourne’s Ten Most Inspirational Women in Hairdressing and Eric is the most awarded American Crew Men’s Barber in Australia. They share over 60 State and National Hairdressing Awards and have worked internationally at both the prestigious Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks.

After running the highly successful Raw Element salon in Carlton for over 15 years, Eric and Wendy are very at home in the Rosanna village. Wendy actually started her career in Rosanna at Classic Cutters, 20 years earlier. Having opened the doors in November 2018, Real Sonder has established itself very quickly and looks to a bright future ahead.


Real Sonder promises exceptional service and outstanding experiences.
