"A stunning colour is like a movable ever-evolving artwork that changes with light and shadow. So creating this masterpiece for my studio guests brings me a tremendous amount of joy!

I also like to create shapes and textures that work with my guest's bone structure and hair type that enhances their natural features."

 

For as long as I can remember, I have had a great love for the craft of hair. 

At the start of my career, I quickly realised that I enjoyed the technical chemistry of colour and had a natural ability to translate this science into real-life colour situations. 

I specialise in complex colour corrections, multi-tonal coppers and reds and white hair coverage transitions.

I also like to create shapes and textures that work with my guest's bone structure and hair type that enhances their natural features.

I am all about styles that allow guests to go on a hair journey as their cut and colour grow out. I love to work with my studio guests to ensure they get the most from their time in the studio and can confidently maintain that at home. Home haircare plays such an integral part in the hair journey too. It's about creating sustainable styles. I want you to love your hair right up until your next appointment with me!

This philosophy is very much reflected in my personal style. I love clean lines and uncluttered, uncomplicated visuals. Simple beauty with a bit of an edge. I love to purchase pre-loved high-quality items that have a history and purpose. Think "Marie Kondo" meets "Johnny Romeo". I also love house plants and enjoy spending many hours wandering around our local garden centres.

My love of colour and technical education, armed with a passion for sustainability, led me to become the National Education Manager for the NZ distributor of Davines for 6 years. This position allowed me to refine my craft while sharing my knowledge with premium salons across New Zealand. I also had the opportunity to train with some of the world's top hairdressers and trainers, including International Hairdresser of the Year awards winners and A-list celebrities.

Outside of the studio,  I am a mum to a young man with Down syndrome and a young daughter. My children are as passionate about sustainability as I am. We can often be found collecting rubbish from around our neighbourhood or supporting one of the many organisations that advocate for young people with disabilities. My son and I have recently started a skincare and grooming business designed to empower him to be independent and live a life of purpose while educating the broader community about what it means to live with Down syndrome.

I am very much looking forward to connecting with you and beginning our journey together.
