Hi I’m Toni, the proud owner of TLC Hairdressing. I have been in the hairdressing industry since 2004 and trained right here in Tauranga. In 2007 I moved to Australia then to Europe to expand my knowledge and strengthen my skills. I love my Job and everything about the industry.
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. The only way to do great work is to love what you do” – Steve Jobs.
The hairdressing industry is always evolving and changing. I believe in continuous education for myself and my staff to ensure we are always on top of current hair fashion as well as hair colour trends. We keep up with the latest techniques by continuously expanding our knowledge within the hair industry. I’m passionate about creating a salon experience that is enjoyable from start to finish.
Foremost I believe in really listening to and understanding my clients. After all how can I give you the best hairstyle, hair colour and advice if I do not know what you want? I believe that everyone needs to be comfortable in their own skin and having good hair brings a whole bunch of self-esteem and confidence.
Hi I’m Hannah, hairdressing has always been a passion of mine. I am a real people person and love to socially interact with everyone around me. This is one of the main reasons that drew me to hairdressing, meeting people of all ages every day is the best part of my job.
My position in the salon is a senior stylist. Over the last year I have had the opportunity to attended many educational and inspirational training courses with the L’Oréal creative team in Auckland. At these courses I gained an invaluable insight to modern colouring techniques, I have been able to explore the world of creativity and love being able to offer a bespoke menu to my clients whilst being at the forefront of fashion. I feel like I have really developed my skills as a stylist and am growing to love the industry more and more!
“I love being a hairdresser because I can change someone’s day or life even just by spending a short amount of time with them. It’s about growing a relationship with your client by listening and catering to their needs.It’s about using art and talent to achieve a look that gives someone outer beauty as well as grows confidence to help them achieve goals.
Being a hairdresser means truly loving people and giving them a bit of positivity for the day and leaving them with a gleaming ray of hope for tomorrow” – unknown.
Hi I’m Jordan. I started Hairdressing back in 2014 in my hometown, Dargaville. Like most passionate hairdressers I started working in the industry as soon as I could, I got a job working after school and weekends at the local hair salon.
After completing the year at school and doing as much hairdressing as I could, I then moved to Auckland with my family and I got the opportunity to fully immerse myself into the Hairdressing world. I enrolled myself into Servilles Academy (New Zealand’s top training academy) and immediately fell in love with everything hair and beauty related. When my family decided to move to Tauranga, I wanted to further my knowledge and skills in the beauty industry. So I enrolled in a makeup artistry and cosmetology course and after a year of study I am now a fully qualified makeup artist.
My passion is for the creative fashion industry and I am certainly always hungry to learn more. I love to make people look and feel beautiful and truly believe that everyone can find their inner beauty, with a bit of guidance. I certainly hope that my passion for hair and beauty helps me, to help people achieve this. “Find something you’re passionate about and stay tremendously interested in it” ~ Julia Child
Hi I’m Rebekah. I started my hairdressing education as an apprentice back in 2011. I completed my training here in Tauranga then travelled to further my skills and knowledge in hairdressing. Then I was lucky enough to find a job working with the renowned Damien Higgins, one of Toni & Guy’s top trainers in Mayfair, London. I quickly became his right-hand woman. Working at this high-end salon is one of my greatest achievements, I quickly built up a loyal clientele and really focused on my blow-wave as well as colouring techniques. Working in London enabled me to work with a huge variety of cultures and hair types. This challenged me in ways I couldn’t have imagined and I certainly do love a good challenge!
Being a hair stylist to me is all about listening, caring, being attentive and loving what I do! My passion is colouring, I love getting creative as well as achieving beautiful, natural, seamless looking colours. Working in London challenged my blow-wave/style and hair-up skills and I have now become an expert. I love doing big, bouncy blow-waves. I believe every client should walk out the door feeling valued & loved as well as beautiful! “Hairdressers are a wonderful breed. You work one-on-one with another human being and the object is to make them feel so much better and to look at themselves with a twinkle in their eye”
