Location: Auckland, New Zealand
I have 15 years experience in New Zealand, managing an award-winning salon and then 3 years ago opened up my own salon - French Revolver Studio. A salon that mergers all creative aspects together, the space also doubles as an art gallery. I wanted to bring hairdressing back to an art form and have created a space where clients and staff were constantly inspired. I've been the recipient of numerous awards.
I have been the core representative for the Sebastian Professional Artistic Team in New Zealand and one of the core people in Australia / NZ and Asia - taking seminars and workshops to inspire thousands of hairdressers across both countries.
I am often a judge of competitions such as Wella Trend Vision, and in the last two years I have been a finalist in the New Zealand Educator of the Year award. I always give up my time to educate hairdressers at training collages and mentor up and coming creatives in hairdressing and other fields.
I've also worked on editorial work for high profile magazines like MindfoodStyle and Remix magazine but also on a photo shoot with the NZ All Blacks team as the only hair stylist.
