Highlight of the year just been:

Coming to Auckland for the first time and being part of Frenchie Team, I work with the most talented hairdressers and amazing souls this has definitely been my highlight of the year! I am always learning more about myself and different cultures through other cultures.

So far the best professional and personal experience!

What exciting plans do you have in store for 2019?

Traveling more! NZ has so much to offer, but also all the pacific Islands... beauty is everywhere. I am excited to learn more about the artistic side of hairdressing, fashion, show...

Best Hair hack for 2019?

I think everyone has a natural beauty - Being confident about your natural beauty, natural hair, texture, color, and doing what you can to make it more beautiful.For example, I love to be able to define more curls when you have naturally curly hair.I like to mix your grey hair with some glossy / shiny tones instead of covering them completely.Cutting hair short when you need more body and volume.

Keegan comes from a family of hairdressers - it is in his blood! He is our go-to guy for short haircuts like bobs and shorter compact shapes.  Outside of the salon you will find Keegan at the gym, watching good films, art and of course is a huge football fan!

Highlight of the year just been?

Being a finalist for team of the year at Hair Expo. Going to the U.K and exploring different cities. 

Favourite summer hair trend?

I really do enjoy loose lived-in hair that looks sun-bleached with natural movement and effortless.   Very easy to achieve at home.


Best Hair hack for 2019?

Definitely enjoying the overnight plait with a bit of sea salt spray and then taking the plaits out the next day and you are left with gorgeous loose movement.

Highlight of the year just been?

Partying with King Princess after her concert in November last year!

What exciting plans do you have in store for 2019?

I’ve had a lot of big changes in my life recently so I’m hoping to go on some overseas adventures and finally visit Europe.

Favourite summer hair trend?

I’ve been doing so many rose golds lately and I am here for it! So nice to see our clients changing it up from the usual ashy blonde and trying something a little bolder.

Best Hair hack for 2019?

Perms are back in a big way, but not as you’d typically know them. A loose, beachy perm is such a great way to give body and style to flat, lifeless hair. I have just recently had one myself and it’s a game changer!

What are the hair colours you predict will trend this season?

I think blondes/ Balayages will stay in fashion but i'm also seeing a lot of rich browns around as well

Are there any styles/cuts you predict will become popular this season?

The classic Lob (collar bone length) will continue to stay in fashion I think its a classic really classy yet simple look

What’s your favourite look you’ve seen this season, in terms of colour and cut?

I really love soft white blondes created by doing very fine highlights and then toning with soft pretty tones, this particular colour I love seeing matched with lobs or long luscious hair. 

Do you have any must-have products or styling secrets you can share with us?

My absolute go to product is luxe oil by Wella, use this on wet or dry hair and it will tame any frizzy's and keep your hair feeling soft and smooth and smells like perfume in a bottle! 

One of my Fav finishing products at the moment is Bedroom hair by Kevin Murphy it is a light weight texturising spray that is perfect for finishing curls to give them a tousled, lived in look :)

Lastly, what websites and influencers do you look to for hair inspiration?

Pinterest and instagram are where i get a lot of my inspiration from.

Short fringes will make a comeback! 

What's your favourite look you saw last season?

Do you have any must-have products or styling secrets you can share?

Start off with Sebastian Professional Trillance heat spray to protect your locks. It adds shine and keeps your hair protected while using heat. Finish off with Kevin Murphy ‘bed head’ to add texture/volume and shape. It’s a dry powder spray that is totally rad
