MEET THE TEAM
I started this journey of hairdressing at 16 years old and realised it was my passion. My goal has been to create a beautiful experience for clients from the moment they walk in, incorporating my spirituality and positive vibe that has each client leaving with gorgeous hair. As a busy mother of two girls, I know as woman we find ourselves so busy these days that treating ourselves is often the last thing on our to-do list. I want our clients to experience a hair appointment that has them leaving feeling pampered and glamorous.
Alvin AKA "THE KING".
This face is well known to you all for his funny jokes and wild hairdressing skills. If you’ve been lucky enough to have him as your stylist you will know just how clever he is and how creative and hard-working Alvin is! Alvin is our weekend man, his days off are Tuesday and Wednesday which is so handy having a man with his skills being available on the weekends. Alvin is incredibly talented in both colour work and precision cutting! Other than hairdressing Alvin loves fast cars and fashion.
Nadine our new senior stylists!! Nadine has been hairdressing for over sixteen years and has a passion for colour corrections and blondes! Nadine's main concern is getting you to your hair goal but with healthy hair. "I believe every client can fall in love with their hair again and I want to help them just do that!"
Welcome back to Shannon who use to work at VJH but went off to do more study! With the current break in her schedule we are lucky enough to have her back part time! Shannon will be working Mondays during the day and Thursdays late night! We are so happy to have her amazing talent and positive personality back in the salon!
Introducing Katy, our new stylist! Katy originally comes from Chile and brings many years of experience with her! Moving down from Auckland Katy has come to our salon to share her knowledge and experience. Katy is working alongside Vic to learn her foil and cutting techniques but is a knockout when it comes to tints. She has wowed us with some pretty awesome pixie and kids cuts too! Katy is super friendly and always one to have a big smile on her face!
Monica is often referred to as "Mumma Bear". She has been part of the team for a few years now and we can’t imagine how we even coped without her! Monica runs the junior team and makes sure that the salon is always stocked up on all the things we need to look after our beautiful clients. If you have had one of Monica’s head massages, you will know exactly how amazing she is with her hands. Not only is Monz the junior manager, she is also our go-to woman for Vixen & Luxe hair extensions. Monz loves this product and the joy it gives the clients - so any questions, she's your lady!
Amarni is 16 years old and gaining awesome employment skills already! With a passion for all things hair, fashion and beauty you will find Amarni the first one to jump in to learn something new. Amarni helps out with the junior roles much like Mikaela. Quiet but full of energy Amarni has been a great addition to the team especially when it comes to making each client feel relaxed and ensuring the salon runs smoothly!
Emily & Sophia are our newest additions to the salon junior team. They can be found helping out with all the essential jobs, cleaning, towels, washing - little jobs with a big impact!! We are looking forward to watching them grow in the team
We can't not mention Teddy. He’s a pappillion-bichon-chihuahua cross. You will often find this gorgeous little boy at the salon either asleep on the couch or super close to his mum while she’s doing hair. Just don’t show him the broom, he thinks it’s going to attack him! This little man loves cuddles and may just fall asleep on your lap if you let him.
