I moved to NZ from Durban in South Africa 10 years ago and just love everything about hairdressing. I enjoy working with long really really straight hair and also cutting short funky styles. I am most known for my art of listening and recommending solutions when clients are unsure of their needs or what would suit them. I specialise in scalp diagnosis and treating unruly, frizzy or dry damaged hair. With a great eye for detail I aim to give you hair that will suit your lifestyle and make your friends jealous!
My love and passion for hair grows each day with my main focus being technical, modern and challenging colour work. I consider myself extremely lucky to have had extensive training in all aspects of colour work including the latest rebonding treatments. I am so happy that Hairnow has a huge variety of colour ranges to choose from, and supports us attending new courses. I love foiling and of course all the latest fashion colours that are trending at the moment.
I have been hairdressing for 20years and am loving working in such a talented fun environment. I am the Team expert in colour correction and love working on long hair. I specialise in Blondes and total restyles. I love cutting, texturising and being creative. I am an avid believer of keeping up with the latest trends so religiously research as much as I can so I can recommend all that is new and in fashion.
With 18years experience I am thrilled to be with the Hairnow Team. I have worked in Korea hairdressing with celebrities in fashion shows, movies and advertising. I specialise in ombré and balayage and creative precision cutting skills. I am a perfectionist and enjoy giving my clients a very relaxing experience.
I started my apprenticeship in Takapuna, then moved to Albany Mall and have been with Hairnow since 2015. I have gained great knowledge and skills working with both ladies and mens cuts and partically love modern colour work. My speciality is working with curly hair so I am highly trained in various permanent straightening treatments and can honestly say they are life changing! I feel there is nothing more comforting than knowing each client I see walks away feeling happy, I am an absolute perfectionist so guarantee you will enjoy your new look.

I first discovered my desire to be a hairdresser when I was 15years old. Hairnow is my second salon on the shore and I’m loving my new goal of building my team and watching our salon grow. I really enjoy all aspects of hairdressing and love the busy running of the salon. My mission is for my team to give you an enjoyable experience with the most amazing consultation and a fabulous hairstyle so you will leave my salon feeling on top of the world.
