Betty Bunhead Headwear™ was founded in 2001 by Jacqueline Hoole.

Jacqueline Hoole, Betty Bunhead Headwear

A classical ballet teacher with over 30 years experience, Jacqueline has - over the years - trained some of the country's leading dancers, including Olivia Bell, Principal Dancer with The Australian Ballet 2007-2013, Ella Havelka, (The Australian Ballet/ Bangarra Dance Theatre), and a number of other soloists and other artists who have danced with the Australian Ballet and other professional companies. Jacqui's depth of professional experience within the dance industry has enabled her to develop a keen eye for what works - and what doesn't - on stage, and this is reflected in her unique dance headwear designs.

After many previous years of designing dance costumes and headwear for her students, Jacqui launched Betty Bunhead Headwear with, quite possibly, the country's first commercial handmade dance tiaras way back in 2001. She's since designed for countless dancers and dance schools nationally, and, for nearly 20 years, refined her styles and manufacturing techniques to create stunning pieces that truly are in a class of their own.

Jacqueline still teaches ballet and, like her husband and daughter, holds a black belt in Tae-Kwon Do.
