Location: Auckland, New Zealand
I have 15 years experience in New Zealand, managing an award-winning salon. Three years ago, I opened up my own salon - French Revolver Studio. The space also doubles as an art gallery, merging all creative aspects together. I wanted to bring hairdressing back to an art form and have created a space where clients and staff are 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 editorials for high-profile magazines such as MindfoodStyle and Remix magazine, and on a photo shoot with the NZ All Blacks team as the only hair stylist.
