The Team



My friends call me DJ. With 42 years in the industry I have loads of experience to share. I clearly love this profession. Ever changing and exciting, that's what keeps you interested.

I spend half my time on the floor with customers and the other half working on the business.

I was the Education Development Manager/Technician for Redken for 7 years, travelling, training hairdressers and facilitating courses. I have also been the evaluator for Redken's international color qualification, so I adore color corrections and any challenge you can throw at me.

I live in Hamilton with my two Burmese cats. After working for a big corporate for years, I wanted to get the work/life balance thing sorted. Hence we are only open 4 days a week. I think it is so important in life and wanted my staff to enjoy that too. We also want to be an inspiration and example to other businesses that it can work.

We have an amazing team at Colors. I believe we have the crème of the crop in Waikato. We are all a little bit different so come choose who would suit you...

Courteney Armstrong


Hi my name is Courteney

I'm a Waikato girl who has always known I wanted to be a hairdresser. I used to go to the salon with my mum and nana when I was about 7yrs old and they would let me sweep the floor.
At 15yrs old I helped out part-time in a salon then started my apprenticeship when I was 16yrs old.

Six years in the industry I've become fully qualified and I'm so excited to join the team at Colors!

Working as a hairdresser has opened my eyes to so many different aspects of hairdressing that I've fallen in love with. I love blondes. You can do sooooo many things with blondes – balayage, foils, ombre, cool/neutral/warm, shadowing, freshened ends, and all the way to low maintenance blondes. No surprise I've been a blonde for 3 years!

I love hot tool styling too, wands tongs and irons, give me a special occasion and I'll give you special hair. If you want curls I'm your girl.

At the end of the day I love what I do so come in and surprise me. I can't wait to meet you all.

On my days off you'll find me out with friends and family enjoying a good cup of coffee and a nice meal or walking Nismo (choc lab cross) through the beautiful New Zealand bush walks or dog parks.



Hi I’m Kylee. I grew up originally in Auckland where my hairdressing career began at the age of 14. I came home from school one day and my mother said to me “Kylee, you have a job in your cousins’ salon and you’re starting tomorrow”.  You can imagine my surprise! So, I guess you could say I fell into this career.

I did my apprenticeship and qualified in 2008. While loving hairdressing, given it’s a people industry, I’ve always been fascinated about what makes human beings tick. So for the last eight years I have been studying psychology while working part time in a salon. I am currently finishing off my masters.

Since starting at Colors my passion for hairdressing is greater than ever before. I love learning new things and the fact that we do so much training here is amazing. We have a photo shoot coming up and I feel I can really unleash all my creativity. I am a full time senior stylist with Colors Hair Company. I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing but have a special interest in creative work and razor cutting.  I look forward to meeting you all.

I am married with a gorgeous teenage daughter. My time off is either spent studying or hanging out with my family, having barbeques, enjoying a wine and a good laugh.

Come in and meet us…



I'm a Waikato girl born and bred, married with two babies (who aren't babies anymore really!)

I always wanted to be a hairdresser and my career started back in 1989. I was managing a salon in the late 90's and ended up buying it in 2003.

I owned Obsession Hairdressing for just over 10 years. I had a blast during that time and worked alongside some of Hamilton's finest stylists and gained many lifelong clients and friends.

In 2014 I ended up closing the business to get a better work / life balance.

I have worked 85% of my career with the Redken brand and absolutely love the products. They really do look after the hair and is one of the reasons I have come to be at Colors Hair Company. I specialise in everything- men, women, color, perming  and hairups so you can throw anything at me. I'm breezy, fun to be around and with a couple of years of industry experience to stay AHEAD of the game without being a dinosaur!!

In my spare time family and friends are really important to me. You can sometimes find me in the garden or I am pretty partial to a drop of red wine. I look forward to seeing you.



HI My name is Ceasara Burke and I am Colors Hair Company's newest apprentice. I'm Waikato born and bred.

I wanted to be a hairdresser because I believe it fulfils my creative side. I love designing things and coming up with new ideas. My favourite part of hairdressing so far is playing around with hair-ups and helping the seniors with their colours. I love seeing outcomes and how happy people are with their new style.

In my free time I love to relax with my friends and hit the beach, usually that's Whangamata.

I'm so excited to get my apprenticeship finished and be the best hairdresser I can possibly be.



Hi my name is Dean

I'm from Cape Town , South Africa originally. I'm the new boy at Colors Hair Company and very excited to be part of this dynamic team that have welcomed me with open arms.

I've been in the hairdressing industry for over twenty years. My passion for hair started very early in life. I have also been very fortunate from day one being taught the importance of education and training. I am a Redken certified hairlcolorist which means I have an international qualification that recognises masterful colorists.

I love ALL aspects of hairdressing. I enjoy doing both men and women's hair design. I specialise in hair tattooing, creative colouring, colour correction, foiling, balayage and ombre. In my spare time I like to spend it with my friends and family, my wife, son and daughter. I enjoy being in nature, camping, hiking and diving and having a great time outdoors or just keeping fit in the gym.

I look forward to meeting the beautiful people of New Zealand and calling it our home.



Hi I'm Lateesha.
I'm a Waikato girl and went to Sacred Heart College. I obviously have a creative side as I choose to study photography and design. Hairdressing feels like a real fit for me.

I was lucky enough to do work experience for 6 months at Colors to check if this was a career I wanted to pursue. Yes, it totally is. I'm so excited to get started. So for the next few years I'm going to learning heaps and I love that there is so many of the team to learn from.

In my spare time I still do some photography, what girls doesn't love shopping!, and of course family and friends are really important to me.

I look forward to meeting you.



After a few years back in Australia I recently returned home to New Zealand and I'm back at my hair home with the fabulous team at Colors! I have been working in the hairdressing industry for 19 years and over that time I have been blessed with experiences such as working in Sydney, London, and Melbourne, in high-end salons where I have worked with a wide range of artists, entered and won competitions, and worked back stage at fashion weeks. My passion is hair first and foremost, I also love makeup, fashion, and my favourite part of this career is working with people and making them feel beautiful. Outside of work I like to be social, I enjoy going out to cafes and restaurants, but also love some lazy days around the house with my animals! Yes, I'm a huge animal lover and have two beautiful kitty cats. I'm here at Colors part time in the afternoons, I really look forward to meeting you.




Redken Laboratories was founded in 1960, a company built from the inspiration of a dynamic, entrepreneurial American actress named Paula Kent.

Frequent chemical services and style changes were routine for any aspiring actress of her day, but Paula was extra sensitive to many of the products used by the hair-dressers and make-up artists. She felt continually frustrated that no one could explain why the products were irritating. Necessity is the mother of invention, and Paula realized that working with professional hairdressers, she could help millions of other people also wanting high performance products that were gentle.

Paula Kent and her hairdresser, Jheri Redding (thus the name "REDKEN") began with three products and an intensive education program for hairdressers about the chemistry of hair and skin.


Redken's philosophy on beauty powered by science

Beginning in 1960, Redken revolutionized the profession-al salon business by introducing the concept of protein reconditioning. Based on evidence that hair is composed primarily of proteins, and can absorb topically applied proteins, Redken developed new protein based products. Salons were suddenly able to condition hair internally and for the long-term rather than solely camouflage damage.

And for the future...

Our commitment to formulate scientifically superior pro-ucts for the global salon community continues, and as we forge ahead in the millennium, our awareness of fashion, street trends and modern hair needs will only enhance our scientific strength.

Consider this...

When was the last time your hairdresser...

  • talked to you about your face shape?
  • used skin tone cards to determine whether you were a warm, cool or neutral before they colored you?
  • looked at you from top to toe, considered your style, and then made suggestions for your total look?

We do all of this and in a fun friendly professional environment.

Come in for a complimentary consultation...
We look forward to meeting you.
