I have been in the hairdressing industry for 20 years. I trained here in New Zealand before heading overseas, where I worked in both London and Australia for 8 years. When I returned to Auckland in 2007 I bought Unity Hair.
I have a passion for hairdressing and enjoy coming to work everyday to do something I love. I have 4 small children at home, so I find the balance very rewarding. My passion is cutting, but also enjoy colour. I work alongside Rachael who is our colourist/stylist - she does a lot of my colour work and together we make a great team.
I am inspired by everyday life and am especially inspired by my clients. I love beautiful healthy hair, clean crisp blondes and sharp textured bobs. I will make your hairstyle work to suit you and your lifestyle.
Originally from Wellington, I have been in the hairdressing industry for over 16 years and have always been attracted to fashion and anything related to making people look and feel beautiful.
I have competed in, and won many hairdressing competitions, and have worked in film, television, fashion shows and product launches over the years. I have always had an appreciation for the glamour of the silver screen, and the movie goddesses of the past and present. However I'm also inspired by music and the creative freedom that it brings...complete individuality.
At the moment I'm really enjoying big hair - lots of volume, I guess a bit of a throwback to the 60s and 80s. Glamorous waves with lots of texture and movement.
If there's one thing I have learned over my many years in the industry, it's the ability to listen to your client, to their wants and needs, and being able to deliver what they expect from you as a professional. And it's this skill, along with my appreciation of fashion, that I use to give my clients that 'Red Carpet Ready' hair that they love when they walk out of the salon.
Colourist / Stylist
I have been in the hairdressing industry for more than 10 years and have been a colourist at Unity Hair since 2011, working closely with Sarah assisting her with her clients. I am a perfectionist in all areas of my work, which is also helping me to build my clientele in cutting and styling.
I love fashion and find a lot of my inspiration comes from magazines to see what's coming in for the next season. At the moment I am loving soft curls, creamy blondes and Balayage / Ombre with beach waves.
I am a fun and bubbly person and strive to give my clients the time and honesty they have come to appreciate from me. Let me give you the perfection you deserve because I would love to create a unique look just for you!
