We started with a beautiful salon.
We started with a beautiful salon.
We chose REDKEN as our product because of their emphasis on healthy hair and continued professional development.
We adopted a philosophy –
“Our mission is to serve the client’s hairdressing needs in a way that ensures the client leaves feeling better than when they arrived.”
And a mantra –
“We want you to have hair that looks great and feels great so we have great people and great products”
Nearly four year’s later, we’ve been honoured with a local business award, our client base continues to grow as well as our team and their ability to provide the friendly, professional service that we are known for…
All our team love every aspect of hairdressing – cutting, colouring, styling, perming, straightening and, of course, gorgeous wedding and special occasion looks.
We also offer free consultations for those who would like a change or to be completely reinvented but are unsure about what they want. Sometimes a little knowledgeable advice about the kind of cut and colour that will suit, gives clients the confidence to try a whole new look.
Beautiful salon, Great products, Talented team,
– and you, the Client

Janel, a natural blonde, loves hairdressing. Janel’s career began at Schnipps 8 years ago where she was a colourist and did some competition work. Next was The Do in Epsom owned by an Englishman who was a HITO examiner in NZ. David developed Janel’s hairdressing skills to a very high standard. When David went back to the U.K. Janel went to work with a friend at a salon in Hillsborough. Here Janel was introduced to REDKEN, a product range she loves.
Janel grew up near Johannesburg in South Africa. Now a real kiwi there’s still a little South African accent, e.g. when Janel says ‘Janel’ we hear ‘Yanel’. Recently Janel and her partner bought a property in Kawakawa Bay. But commuting to Hillsborough wasn’t fun so now she’s here!
Confident, capable, easy to talk to, very skilled, totally professional Janel’s special love is colour, particularly balyage/ombre and blondes.
Ally is a whirlwind of talent and creativity. Her expertise is the result of 19 years in the industry. She uses her wealth of knowledge and flair in men’s and women’s colouring and styling to attract a loyal following.
Ally usually comes to the salon on Tuesdays but can be tempted to come on Thursdays as well.

Bright, breezy, passionate and dedicated Amy is a country girl whose experience with horses has given her a relaxed and confident manner that makes for great relationships. Before she came to us Amy spent 2 years concentrating on cutting. Amy has relished the opportunity to work with colour as well and is now very skilled with both colour and cuts. Growing up with curly afro-style hair gave Amy a desire for hair that was straight and silky, and cuts that had both precision and style. If that’s what you want Amy can do it. But if you have a different style in mind Amy would love to help you with that too.
