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.
Adrie is one of our longest standing staff members. Hard working mumma of four has a large following of loyal customers due to her perfectionist nature and the way she genuinely cares for her clients. She is incredibly experienced and talented with her blonde work which is why her clients love her as much as we do!
Nadine our new senior stylists!! Nadine has been hairdressing for over six 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!"
Kia ora - I'm Emma! Lover of bright blondes, balayage and big bouncy waves!
I have been hairdressing for over six years and can't wait to continue my journey with VJH!! When I am not at work you would probably find me in the kitchen or at the gym!
Emma's passion in her blonde work really shows with her already wowing us with her skill. Emma is friendly and knowledgable about her work - feel free to ask questions!
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!
Shanelle is our brilliant intermediate stylist and has some serious skills when it comes to colour, especially blonde work. Shanelle is an extremely hard worker and is dedicated to getting you the results you need! She may often be seen as quiet but she’s the one out the back getting jobs done and always offering her support to the senior stylists.
Junior Stylist & Junior
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!
Georgia came to us right when we needed her after lock-down and has been an amazing addition to the team. Often found deep in thought at that front desk we promise she’s happy to see you it’s just her resting work face (hehe). Georgia has been up-skilling over the last few months and is now one of our more senior juniors. You may find your stylists calls on Georgia to do your wash and blow dry or even finish your look off with her impressive curls.
As part of out salon support team is Mikaela. She will be found out the back doing all the little jobs that people don’t see. Folding towels, doing dishes, cleaning and bowls etc. it’s Staff like her that make our jobs so much easier. Mikaela has been working hard to up-skill the past few months and now does an amazing Aura treatment! Please if you see her at work do say hello, Mikeala has autism so she may not be the first one to pipe up and say hello but once you introduce yourself there is no stopping her.
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
Lexie aka Vic’s bestie! What started out as an after hours message girl has turned into a full management role! When Vic is unavailable, Lexie will be there to help out! Lexie does a lot of work behind the scenes, website, instagram and is also the staff manager, so she deals with all the HR and client solutions! If you message us after hours your reply will most probably be from Lexie (she never seems to sleep!) You won’t see her much in the salon but she is one that keeps all the balls rolling smoothly and is Vics right hand woman!! Lexie is studying her law degree and raising three boys - yep busy lady!!
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.
