Betty

Her hair ups are a piece of art

We are beyond excited to introduce Betty our newest stylist. Betty is one of our guest stylists who will be joining our salon for the next 3 months. Training in Paris and working in some of the top salons has given her the ability not only to work with all different hair types, but also know exactly what you need for the best outcome to suit you and your lifestyle. She is a master in hair ups and working with extremely curly hair, letting her creativity flow through free hand colour and hair ups. Having 12 years’ experience and working in a vast variety of different settings makes Betty a stylist you won’t want to miss. Book in with her now!



Kane

He’s young and funky but has a way about him that always makes you feel looked after

Kane joins our team from Palmerston North where he completed all of his training and continued to work and develop himself as a stylist for 3 more years, now having 6 years’ experience under his belt. Moving to Auckland as a new adventure and to take his hair dressing career to the next level. We are delighted that he chose our salon, where he wants to further develop his skills as a stylist. He is our youngest member but do not under estimate him as he is absolutely exploding with creativity and passion. In the world of hairdressing you sometimes come across young talent that has hairdressing in their blood, when you are lucky enough to find these individuals you grab them fast and that is exactly what Ministry of Hair did. Kane will mainly be working alongside Hester as a colour assistant, but will also be taking on his own clientele, so be sure to get in before he can no longer take on new clients.
December/January: Spend $160 on colour and receive a $50 voucher to spend on yours or a loved one’s hair at Ministry of Hair.

You will always feel looked after when Kane is doing your hair.



Christopher

You could liken him to Edward scissor hands…and colour extraordinaire

We are very privileged to have Christopher as part of the team at Ministry of Hair for over 2 years. He is now taking his career even further, becoming our new floor manager. Christopher joined us from a background of international training and work. Christopher trained in Paris and has worked in some of the highest caliber salons around the Globe. Now here with us we introduce you to an extremely passionate hairdresser who has perfected his cutting abilities over the last 10 years in the industry. He uses his scissors like an artist uses a paint brush, sculpturing the hair to create soft lines and easy to manage styles he works wonderfully with both Men and Women’s cutting. Christopher is also renowned for complimenting any style with colour, his visual ability to intuitively understand what will work best to suit your looks.

When I met Christopher I knew straight away that he had ‘the love of Hair Bug’ that’s why we employed him



Hester

Hester understands hair and fashion, that’s what over twenty years in the industry gives you.

Working with people and their Hair is a privilege, the trust and confidence that people put in the hands of their Hairdresser is huge. Hester has been in this industry for over 20 years now, she established Ministry of Hair in 2007, knowing what a privilege it is to be trusted by her clients is exactly why she continues to work within the salon full time.
Employing stylists to work alongside her that possess ‘heart and soul’ hairdressing and a minimum of 8 years industry experience is why Ministry of Hair is what it is today. Her team is an expression of her standards and passion which is a dream come true.
When Hester is working on the floor she excels with challenging hair; hair with personality, whether you have fine, curly or simply unruly hair, Hester manages to understand what is needed, bringing out the best she can to make your life easier with whatever hair headache you may have.

I love it when clients come in suffering from what I call ‘Hair Depression’ and they leave with giving me a hug, that’s why I still cut and colour hair after 28years… it is the joy of my career


Rachel

She’ll bring life to your hair and a smile to your life.

Rachel is one of the longest members of the ministry of hair team. Rachel has always worked part time and spent last year on a sabbatical whilst traveling through Europe and the Middle East with her family. With over 20 years of hairdressing expertise and a passion for beautiful healthy hair, Rachel’s clients always leave delighted. Attention to detail and a drive for perfection lead Rachel to diversify in her career where she enjoyed tutoring in the hairdressing industry and also became an industry examiner. She has forte in cutting and is particularly good with curly hair. A fantastic colourist with a particular love for Classical beautiful blondes. No matter what the look Rachel’s wealth of experience makes her a fabulous part of our team.

I have been trying to get Rachel to work full time at Ministry of Hair for years but for now it’s Monday’s and Friday’s.
