What do you love about your job?
I love how social and fun it is. You get to meet so many interesting people and be creative all day.

How are you going with running the salon and raising your gorgeous boy?
You just make it work. I have a better balance now that I’ve managed to cut down to three days a week. I am also lucky to have a good support system.

Tell us about the crew at Tonic?
I have fabulous staff. Annick did her training in Montreal and has been with me for two years. Eva did her training in the states and has been at Tonic for 1 year. Without my wonderful girls, I couldn’t do it on my own..

Where are you most happy?
At home with my family.

Perfect summers day?
Starting with a walk or yoga. Spending time at the beach with my family and friends. Then a nice glass of chardonay while watching the sun go down.

What is the best advice you have been given?
The best advice I’ve been given would be from my parents to work hard to achieve my goals but to always have balance.Also to treat others how I would like to be treated.

What are the lastest looks and trends with hair this summer?
I have just been to the Annual Hair Awards in Auckland and as far as hair goes it’s long hair, short hair, mid length hair and anything in between. Colour is clear blondes, rich brunettes and vibrant reds adding depth and tone.

Tell us a little about the product range you use in the Salon?
We use a beautiful Italian range called Davines. It appealed to me because they are very committed to sustainabilty and all their products are made with energy from renewable sources and use eco packaging. Davines have just launched an ammonia free permanent colour range. We also stock Origional Mineral which is a retail range free of sulfates & parabens.
