Owner / Director
It has always been my vision to create a luxury Hair & Beauty Salon with the focus of delivering an exceptional customer experience, career growth and opportunities, culture and an environment where my team can develop their own strengths.
Since the Loulous Brand was created in 2009, we have gone from strength to strength and we have had some huge successes and wins. During this time, Loulous has flourished with the opening of the Luxurious Day Spa in 2017 to add to the Loulous experience of being able to deliver both Hair & Beauty services in one destination.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, mountain biking exploring NZ and travelling.
Salon Manager / Advanced Master Stylist
Krista has been in the hairdressing industry for 12 years.
“I left Northland and joined the Loulous family in 2015 as a Master stylist. With continual up skilling I took a place on the Loulous Leadership team. I then took a year off in 2018 to travel, I found myself managing a Salon and Spa aboard a 6 Star Luxury Cruise ship.
After sailing the world and having been to 48 countries and experiencing some amazing things, I have finally came home and settled back into life at Loulous as Salon manager and Advanced Master stylist.”
I have over 25yrs experience in the Hair Industry. Spent 8yrs at Servilles, Auckland as one of their head trainers and 13 years in Sydney as a head stylist and trainer.
Whilst here in NZ and overseas, I worked on several T.V personalities and celebrities.
I loved working in hair shows/on stage demonstrations and hair expo’s and love the photography that comes as part of shows as well.
After 25yrs my passion for hair has never left. If anything, I have found that over time, I have become more and more interested and excited as hair and fashion changes all the time.
I find this industry exciting with all the changes and a creative outlet. But even more so, it is the connection, the Impact, that I, as a hairdresser can have on people.
Advanced Master Stylist/ Salon Educator
I have been hairdressing for 16 years and have worked in a top luxury salon in Australia, training with some of the best in the business. I mastered in cutting for 6 years before specializing in colour.
I love colour corrections, balayage, creamy blondes and pastels.
My cutting style is classic with new glamour styling. I am very particular and have great attention to detail. I love making people feel good about themselves and get a lot of joy from seeing my guests confidence shine through. I am very open and honest and what you see is what you get. I'm obsessed with my dog - she is 100% my fur child.
Advanced Master Stylist
I have been in the industry for 20 years and have to say it is my PASSION! I enjoy every aspect of my role but have a true love for makeovers, funky styling and beautiful long hair work. There is nothing better to me than to make my client feel amazing with a personalised colour, style and hair care programme.
Here at Loulous we never stop learning and are always looking at up-coming trends and fashions so that we can pass these on to our clients with confidence.
Advanced Master Stylist
In December of 2010, I graduated at CRL International Beauty and Hair Academy (South Africa). I have been in the hair industry doing what I love, ever since.
My husband and myself moved over to NZ in March 2019 with our 2 Fur babies and absolutely love it here.
I love creating beautiful blondes, colours and precision cutting for my clients and always love my clients going away completely satisfied and happy with their new look.
I love making my clients feels amazing and taking care of every part of their journey while in Salon. I enjoy learning techniques and skills especially in colour and styling. Head massages are my specialty.
I would love to master colour work over the next year and become more creative and confident. I love working alongside and supporting my team.
I am currently a second year apprentice having studied at Servilles Academy last year.
I am enjoying learning new skills as I work and am excited to continue my career here at Loulous as an Emerging stylist.
I've always had a passion for hair. I started my hairdressing journey in 2018 working in a local salon here in Cambridge. Since then I have graduated at Varda hairdressing academy and I am now beginning my apprenticeship here at Loulous and can't wait to learn and grow.
I love making people feel happy and confident and put my all into everything I do.
“I returned to work after having my beautiful daughter - Mia. I have previously worked for a few large corporate companies as an Account Manager and wanted to find another role that I could continue that high level of customer service.
In this role, I find it very enjoyable and rewarding meeting new people and giving the best customer service I can at each point of contact. I absolutely love being a part of the Loulous family.”
“After 30 years in media I decided it was time for a change but didn’t want to loose the customer contact as this is what I love.
I had been a client at Loulous for 8 years so when the Salon Support role came up I jumped at it.
I take great pride in providing top customer service and love being a part of the Loulous team”
