Returning to Melbourne in 2004, Mathieson worked for one year at a salon called Heading Out. There he met Gillard, a long-standing client of the salon. They began dating in March 2006 and became partners in 2007. After leaving Heading Out, Mathieson returned to Shepparton and established Tim Mathieson Hair with financial support from his father and brother. However, in 2006 he returned to Melbourne, where he worked as a sales representative for PPS Hairwear, a hair products company. In January 2010, Mathieson was appointed as a property agent for Ubertas Group, a Melbourne real estate agency, and focused on selling high-rise apartments in Melbourne to international buyers. Mathieson would remain in that role until March 2010.

In January 2013, Mathieson attracted media attention for a joke he made while advocating for prostate examinations, advising men to seek out "a small Asian female doctor" when receiving a rectal prostate exam. His remark was considered inappropriate and in poor taste by some commentators. He later apologised "for any offence caused".
