Our Story


Tracy Sarjant-Roberts has always been ambitious. At the tender age of 13 she wanted to be a hair stylist... and she wanted Stephen Marr to train her. By the time she was 15 she'd made that happen.

She then dreamed of owning a salon - Tracy was 26 when she opened Common Thread. Suffice to say, once she sets her mind to something, she gets shit done. Tracy has recruited stylists from Stephen Marr, Servilles and Blaze (as well as training staff herself) to ensure people from across the Auckland region have easy access to highly-qualified stylists who push boundaries and produce award-winning work.

Common Thread now has a badass team of people who make you look and feel your best, every damn day. We’re passionate about wowing people. Don’t worry, we know that means different things to different people but we love the challenge of figuring out what your wow is and making it happen. We’re honest experts - you can trust us to advise you. And we’re not afraid to say no if you want us to do something we’re uncomfortable with.

Sustainability is really important to us. We love discussing how to make the world a better place... but we don’t just talk about it. All our products are eco-friendly, paraben-free and not tested on animals. We use low or no ammonia colours and will always consider your whole health picture when deciding how to treat, colour, cut and style your hair.
