Meet our 2023 Holiday artist Antoinette Ferwerda

And the Holiday gift packaging we've created.



Hairhouse celebrates a female artist every year, and for 2023, we’re thrilled to have collaborated with the wonderfully talented Antoinette Ferwerda. A mother, gallery owner and ​​Australian fine artist calling Victoria home, Antoinette’s passion for the world around us inspires her gorgeous art style and unique collage technique.

Our collaboration

Antoinette created “Garden Party” for us, a beautiful piece blooming with abstract florals, made up of layers upon layers of paint, ink and metallic gold leaf. Rich in texture and movement with bold, festive-feeling colours, Antoinette’s art perfectly captures the spirit of the holiday season while celebrating the beauty of the natural world.

Bold, bright and brushed with glow gold leaf—you’ll see Antoinette’s artwork splashed across Hairhouse stores and adorned on our limited-edition Holiday gift boxes and bags. The perfect finishing touch for all your presents, drop by selected Hairhouse stores and dress up your holiday haul with our artfully designed gift packaging.

Antoinette’s Holiday Haul

Need help deciding on gifts? Let’s delve into Antoinette’s must-have haircare, studio essentials and the surprises she’s gifting her loved ones (and herself) this Christmas.

Holy grails

“Hands down, K18 is my holy grail. I colour my hair regularly, which can lead to a bit of dryness. K18 is so restorative—I absolutely love it!” - Antoinette

Chemical treatments can take a toll on hair (think dry, dull, split ends), so, as a blonde, Antoinette’s locks crave a little more TLC to stay shining and healthy. K18’s Leave-in Molecular Repair Hair Mask has become her holy grail for mending damage from the inside out, leaving her locks revitalised, silky and resilient against the effects of going blonde.

For her studio

“Fragrance is really important to my creative process, as is music” - Antoinette Ferwerda. 

As we filmed our “Chat with Antoinette Ferwerda” series (spoiler: keep an eye on our Instagram), Antoinette was burning the Peppermint Grove Australia Champagne & Red Raspberries Soy Candle. Encompassing the scent of champagne lunches, fruit platters and tinsel-covered Christmas trees, every home needs a festive fragrance this holiday season. Take it from Antoinette.

Gifting herself

Ticking off your Christmas gift list isn’t complete until you’ve treated yourself to a little something, and Antoinette’s got her eye on ghd’s limited edition Deluxe Gift Set in Alluring Jade. A gift set that covers you no matter what look you’re in the mood for: start with the helios™ hair dryer for a salon-worthy blow dry, then top up your style (we’re talking curls, waves or super sleek) with the platinum+ hair straightener.

Gifting her daughter

Antoinette’s thinking of gifting her lucky daughter the Halo Marilyn Hair Curler (here’s hoping she doesn’t see this!) A clamp-free, 1-inch ceramic curler that infuses hair with moisture and shine while effortlessly crafting bouncy, full-bodied curls. We love brushing out the curls for tousled, lived-in waves!
