I studied in Christchurch as I wanted to experience a difference city, and recieved my Diploma of Beauty Therapy in 2020.  I moved back to Whakatane and joined Indulge in 2021.   After a brief hiatus, I'm stoked to be back and can't wait to see all the familiar faces, and meet the new ones.

I love helping you have a better understanding of what your skin needs, provide advice and recommend products for the best possible results. 

 

I aim to give every single client the best possible experience, every time, I know this is your time away from your busy life and I enjoy pampering you to ensure you leave feeling relaxed and special! 

 

Outdoor hiking is one way I like to relax and recharge on my days off.  Nothing like spending the day surrounded by nature! 

Favourite service to provide:  Peels & Microdermabrasion give such instant and amazing results to clients, I just love seeing their skin glow after these amazing treatments. 

Favourite product: Any of the Vitamin A, Retinol products just give the skin such a boost and keep it looking young and fresh.

I've started working with Indulge Beauty in January 2023, after living in Auckland for past 8 years, I decided it was time to move back to be closer to my family in December.

I've always had a passion for brows, and have been lucky enough to win awards one of which allowed me the opportunity to travel to San Fancisco.

 

I really do love all things 'eyes' - tinting, brow mapping, brow laminations, lash lifts. I'm looking forward to bringing henna brows and dermaplaning services to Indulge in 2023.

I'm focusing on learning Te Reo Māori in my spare time, and am currently enrolled in an immersion class which is helping to propel my learnings. 

I'm available in the booking system from 17th January, and I'd love to meet you all!

Favourite service to provide:  Definitely brow tint/shaping, as you can see an immediate difference in the way good brows frame a face. 

 

Favourite product: Elleebana Mascara. It stays on all day, is not irritating to the eyes, and is easy to remove at the end of the day.

I moved to Whakatāne when I was a young child and have been here ever since, and really love the outdoors lifestyle that Whakatāne has to offer.  Just couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

 

After gaining my Beauty Therapy Diploma in 2014, I came to work for Tanya at Self Indulgence, but left 5 years later to make two beautiful babies.  After 3 years off, I’m excited to be back!  It has been a real treat to see so many of the clients I used to see still coming to the salon, it’s made coming back a whole lot more satisfying!  I’m looking forward to catching up with you all again over the coming months.

 

Hubby & I are currently living on a dairy farm with our two toddlers, a cat and a dog, making for a pretty hectic life outside of the salon, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  When we have time to get away, we love to explore new places and look forward to getting back into hiking and camping again.

 

Favourite service to provide: I love pampering my clients with relaxing treatments, such as our Serenity facial. It’s a nice feeling seeing clients walk out refreshed and stress-free. 

Favourite product: The Joyce Blok Alpha-Beta range, specifically the face and body exfoliant.

I completed my level 3 in makeup and skincare at Toi Ohomai, located in Whakatane. I have always had a passion for beauty and I love helping people feel confident in their own skin.

 

Growing up in Matatā, I have a deep appreciation for the outdoors and the community within Whakatane and the surrounding towns. I took a break from the makeup and beauty field when I became pregnant with my now one-year-old child.

 

I am excited to be taking on an apprenticeship position and gaining more skills that will allow me to continue pursuing my passion for helping others feel confident and beautiful.

Favourite Service to receive: 

Favourite Product: Whish Pomegranate Body Butter, Bath Gel & Body Scrub.   This body cream soothes and softens your skin and has the most delicious sweet pomegranate scent that leaves you smelling great.

I grew up on a kiwifruit orchard in Te Puke surrounded by my ginormous family, moved to Sydney as a teenager and then back to the sunny Bay of Plenty in 2009.  Growing up on an orchard taught me the value of hard work and that anything can be achieved with a bit of sweat, dedication, and aroha. Living in a small rural community after so long in the big city of Sydney has been intensely satisfying and have really enjoyed making new friends in Whakatāne. 

I was working for the Whakatane Mill until the opportunity popped up to purchase this business in 2022, and I jumped at the opportunity to become an active business owner.

Glamping near any beach or lake with her hubby (who of course makes the glamping possible!), two Spaniels, good food and friends is the ultimate way to unwind.  

I'm really looking forward to getting to know all our clients from the reception desk and putting my stamp on the business. I'm enjoying learning about the different treatments and technology available and seeing what we can bring to the salon.

Favourite service to receive: I love how a Leg Wax not only leaves my legs silky smooth, but also helps exfoliate and rejuvenate my dry skin. It's amazing how even when the hair starts to grow back, the ends still feel soft and smooth. A little self-care goes a long way!

Favourite product: The ATP Beauty Collagen is just delicious! I have it every morning and it really sets me up for a successful day. This product is great for improving skin hydration, elasticity, decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and boosting collagen production from the inside out.
