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...
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 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.
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.
Hi, I'm Ollie!
I am a third year apprentice at Colors Hair Company, and I'm extremely honoured to be a part of the Colors Team.
Born in Auckland, 5 and a half years in Leeds, England, and back to New Zealand, Hamilton, in 2006... I absolutely love the chill and breezy vibes that I've been able to grow up with in Hamilton. I enjoy drawing and letting my imagination run free during my free time. Along with drawing, I have a huge passion for music. Being able to hop onto the piano when I have a spare moment is pure bliss.
Having experienced uni life for half a year and discovering that it wasn't the route for me, I fell in love with hairdressing not long after returning from Dunedin.
The creativity which comes with hairdressing is absolutely AMAZING!!
I truly can't wait to continue learning and growing towards becoming a qualified hairdresser!
I have been in the hairdressing industry for 20 years now and i absolutely love it It's been an eventful and exciting career to date entering many competitions, styling for runway and fashion shows to make up launch's with Napoleon Perdis. I have worked my way around Australia and Canada before returning home to open my own salon for 5 years in Timaru.
I have been honoured to do many many weddings and this is a passion of mine. I am constantly upskilling in any way I can. I love doing blondes, balayage and foiling is my art. In my spare time you will find me with my husband Mike and 2 beautiful busy boys Wil and Hudson, usually camping or enjoying our beautiful country. I have just relocated from Christchurch and I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
I can't wait to explore our new surroundings up north ❤️
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.
