Meet Our Talented Staff

Our team has many decades of combined experience in the hair salon industry. Our hair stylists are always encouraged to further develop their skills and knowledge of hairdressing.  By engaging in hair industry events and competitions our hair stylists gain new hair techniques which we then pass on to all our salon clients.

Gabrielle Evaga

This is my third year hairdressing and my first year as a barber. My passion is creative hairdressing from subtle to dramatic changes, and I love to push the limits.

I’ve been involved in several hairdressing events and competitions and have placed in Hair to Train’s Vanguard competition for hair ups and colour work.  I have also taken part in the Bay of Plenty Regional Competitions, Tarnished Frocks and Divas Fashion show and was a part of the Hair to Train creative team in 2016.

I love all aspects of my job, especially creating styles for special occasions, balls and formal events.

Invest in your hair; it’s the crown you never take off!

Jade Hyndman

I have been hairdressing for 13 years, have owned my own salon and worked in various salons around New Zealand.

I’m passionate about creative colours from beautiful soft ombre and balayage to bright mermaid hair!

I enjoy styling hair for formal events like weddings and have worked on various runway and freelance photo shoots.  For three years in a row I worked at New Zealand fashion week.

I love giving clients a lift with a makeover and going on a journey with their hair. Book an appointment and see me at our beautiful new salon, Ivy Hair.

Jadine Bennett

I’m in my fourth year of hairdressing and passionate about hair and make-up.

I have been involved in lots of great events including the Bay of Plenty Regional Hairdressing competitions, Top Shop Photoshoot, Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards and the Miss Universe photoshoot.

I enjoy creating structured styles for weddings and balls, but equally enjoy creative free-hand colour work, especially balayage.

Life might not be perfect, but your hair can be!
