Hi I’m Toni. I proudly opened TLC’s doors in 2015 and the salon has been growing ever since, not to mention myself as a stylist and business owner. Having been in the industry over a decade and a half, I have continued to attend educational courses that help me to keep my knowledge of the industry up to date, including the ever advancing technology behind professional hair colour and hair-care. I believe in truly knowing and understanding you brand. As well as continuing to grow my technical skills in cutting, colouring and styling, I also frequently attend business management and leadership courses to make sure I am the best leader I can be for my team.
Education is so important to me and as the owner/leader. I ensure my team are also attending regular training sessions or educational courses. Keeping up to date with the latest trends, colour and techniques. I believe in education and growth for my team.
I do my best to make sure that my team and I are 100% committed to creating a salon experience in which you feel pampered and relaxed.
Most importantly I believe in a thorough consultation with plenty of advice. The more your hairdresser knows about you and your hair, the better the outcome. This belief is instilled into my team so whoever you see, I promise you will feel listened to and offered home hair-care advice, plus styling tips if you need them. For me, it’s about growing a relationship with your client by listening and catering to your needs. It’s about using art, skill and knowledge, to achieve a look that gives someone outer beauty as well as helping to grow confidence in yourself to be the best version of YOU!
Hi I’m Amanda. I was a little late getting into Hairdressing, I didn’t start studying until I was 19 back in 2008. I did two years study at Wintec before I started working in a salon in Hamilton. For the next 8 years I spent my time exploring the incredible world of hair and really expanding my knowledge and skills as a hairstylist. It is such an exciting and limitless industry, there is nothing about Hairdressing that I don’t like. I believe that New Zealand has a very high standard in Hairdressing, and as a senior stylist I do my best to uphold this high standard of work.
Over the years I have attended many educational courses including: colour revolution, colour change, NYC barbering, foundation cutting with Richard Kavanagh, just to name a few. I have also been a Kérastase ambassador since 2016.
Being a blonde myself I’d say my strength is blonde colour work. I also love doing balayage and blended colours plus complete restyles. I love the feeling I get knowing I have helped someone reach their hair goals, plus it gives me another reason to take the utmost pride in my work. Working one on one with clients to make their hair dreams come true is the best part about my job.
I am extremely passionate about healthy hair! A very important part of my job is sending clients home with the correct home hair care and advice, because healthy hair is beautiful hair! I love working with Loreal and Kerastase as I believe in these brands and what they stand for. The philosophy behind these two brands is exactly what we at TLC Hairdressing believe in. Healthy, strong, un-compromised hair with a truly relaxing spa experience is what we are all about. So, working at a salon that shares the same vision and truly believes in their brand is very important to me.
Hi I’m Whitney.
I started my hairdressing career in June 2019 at the beautiful TLC Hairdressing, where I am lucky enough to be taken on as TLC’s first ever apprentice. I have always loved the industry and I am very excited to be taking on a new challenge.
My passion in life is everything creative! I am a self taught makeup artist, fashion designer and lash extension specialist. I have also run my own floristry business for the last 5 years. I am hoping that the hairdressing Industry will help me continue my love for fashion, makeup and hair plus let my creativity shine and grow!
I also have a huge love and dedication to my culture and enjoy playing/watching sports in my spare time.
I love to be challenged in life and am always looking for creative outlets. Hairdressing to me is such an exciting industry, I love that it is always changing and evolving, like myself as a person. I love to learn and meet new people, I am full of confidence and really looking forward to becoming an amazing hair stylist. With the knowledge and talent at TLC Hairdressing, I’m sure it will happen before I know it!
