Beach Blonde Colour & Cut Specialist / Event Hair & Makeup Artist - $145 per hour
I adore blonde hair. It's not only the colour that appeals to me; also the creative expression and technical skill needed to make a striking blonde.
Working with a guest to go blonde is a creative and technical challenge. I've got to be on my game all the time thinking where I'm going to place that blonde colour. Getting the placement right can bring more movement into the look and enhance a client's features. I get excited working out how I can make my blonde clients look amazingly carefree and effortless. It's always my goal to keep the hair in ultimate condition. Because of this, I love to create a low-maintenance colour that doesn't compromise the hair. Hard and fast colour change is not my style.
Along with blonding, I also specialise in events, hair, and makeup and love glamming my clients up for special occasions.
I've been working in the hair and beauty industry since 2002. I started my career as a hairdresser before going on to study makeup artistry. My experience covers salons, fashion, runway show's for fashion week, photoshoots, and bridal. There was even a period when I was the head tutor of the Makeup School in Ponsonby and dabbling in a little bit of film.
My personal style is boho. I love floating feminine skirts and tops that get paired with hard elements like cowboy boots. That juxtaposition is what appeals to me - and hats. I love hats! It is the epitome of being carefree and adventurous. And of course, the natural vibe, being close to the beach and nature, is essential to me.
Away from the studio, I am a mother of two children and have two dogs. One of them frequently hangs out with me in the studio, Dixie, the dachshund. She loves greeting guests in the studio. I'm passionate about fitness, nutrition and wellbeing. For me, it's never just about hair or makeup, but holistic wellbeing, isn't it?
