Although I grew up in a small town I always had big dreams, one of which was to own my own business. Hair2Go was 14 years in the making, but the wait was well worth it.
I completed my studies at the Carlton hair, where I went on to work for them for 8 years. After Carlton I began working at Blo hairdressing salon. I am lucky to have formed an established clientele, some of which include several celebrities. In early 2018, I was chosen to take part in the L’Oréal Colour Hair Competition consisting of 10 of the top hair stylists.
I have been fortunate to have worked on cover shoots for magazines, be part of SA fashion week and part of the creative team that was responsible for hairstyling for the MNET production galaxy of stars.
I currently specialize in colour and colour correction, weddings and special events.
Besides hair, my hobbies include spending time with my husband and 5 amazing doggies. I love making people see their inner beauty and that’s why I became a Hair Stylist.
I started my hairdressing career in 1992 with the Dave & Johan Group of salons. During which time I gained experience as salon manager and head of training and education.
I was involved in numerous launches and training seminars for L’Oréal, as well as participating in the L’Oréal colour trophy finals.
In 2006 I co-founded Blo hair salon in Parkwood. I have since partnered with Jenna Brugman and rebranded the salon … Hair2go.
As a stylist, my main interests are cutting, colouring and the more technical aspects of hairdressing.
When I’m not at work, I try and spend as much time as possible with my family. I also enjoy watching a good game of football or rugby.
