Invercargill's hottest new hairstyling studio..Leading the way with the latest colour, cut, blowdry and upstyling services..

Now also available for freelance special occasion work, weddings etc.. 'I wanted to create an inviting environment for our local families where other stylists could also come along & just Do Hair..'

Some more of my fave makeovers this week..
4 & 6yrs old, in depth, thorough consultation, including inspo pics for reference & putting our heads together to come up with the perfect design.. Whether it's finishing the fringe she started herself at Kindy, or figuring how much hair to take off for the side shave her classmates didn't believe she would do.. Or a fancy updo for lunch in town with Nan..
The confidence is soo admirable & I just wanna shout out to the Mummy's that let these babes have their creative freedom & let them shine.. Xx

Stunning makeover from last night!! Deep mahogany base, with pops of mahogany copper to enhance Michelle's natural texture & new shape!! Soo satisfying, we had so much stunning hair to work with, loving the rich, warm colours at the moment Xx

Another freshen up from last night! I love to create lived in colour for my blondies, swipe to see the before from Feb! You'll see the colour was still pretty, but how gooood is it fresh 😍 Xx

Lil Queens Birthday makeover mission.. I'm not a seamstress by any means, but I have good ideas & the determination to bring my visions to life.. I pulled apart the black jumpsuit to use as a pattern, as I loved the fit, but didn't love the print of the fabric, or 'armpit vagina' from the cut round the arms 🤣.. Have thought about it for over a year & only plucked up the courage today.. Xx

Warm, cozy autumnal colour to make this pixie POP.. I love tailormade shapes & colours.. I feel it's important to fine tune both elements, so you don't end up 'walking past yourself' on the street Xx #lovemyjob #passion #artist #colourexpert #dohairbycarenmackay .

Happy Wednesday!! Just a wee whip round the GHD goodness we currently have in store.. Including a glimpse of the STUNNING Platinum+ limited edition stylers in the 'crazy hair lady's' favourite colour..
Update: The blue stylers & black gold stylers have now sold!! We will be placing an order early next week, so PM any questions or requests.. Xx

Happy Monday everyone!! Hoping to inspire you with some current colour & shape trends, especially for your long awaited hair doo.. My mission is to tailormake a look just for you, so ya don't 'walk past yourself down the street..'
🧚‍♀️Personalise your short hair with a loose, effortless pixie, or some sharp contrast of lengths for a bit of edge.. Push yourself a lil bit on your next colour..

🧝‍♀️Blondes this season are either deeper, or brighter.. Adding depth with lowlights or a rootmelt of caramel, honey, or chocolate.. Brighter -dialling the spotlight up a notch with clean platinum blonde accents, an icy tonor or drench in warmth with copper gold tones..

💇‍♀️Mid length -'Change is as good as a holiday' add an edgy fringe/bangs, undercut, or disconnect & shag up your bob with short layers.. Bold colour or bangs will hold back the 'mum bun' guilts..

🍫Brunettes are drenched in deep, dark shine with a pop of face framing lights, or balayage.. Nothing too unfamiliar, except contrast is key this time, very light on very dark, isolating to a key area (rather than straw like ombre)..
Any questions just PM me Xx

[05/24/20]   A quick lil recreation of my look for @patrickcameronhair visit earlier in the year!! Using my fave lil sidekick the @ghdhair #ghdflightdryer to show you how quick & easy your morning blowave could be.. I would recommend this dryer as your everyday dryer for short hair, or fine hair.. Designed for travel, with built in dual voltage, it's ightweight, compact -it's about 3/4 sized with a foldable handle.. It still packs a punch, with 70% power of the #ghdairhairdryer & thanks to the latest safe heat styling technology, you will experience healthier hair over time.. We have had loads of amazing feedback from the new homes we have found them so far..
$119 including FREE Pureology trio giftset.. PM any questions Xx #lovemyjob #passion #artist #colourexpert #dohairbycarenmackay @ghdhair_anz

The night before opening day, we have sanitized, rearranged & got everything sorted!! Some fresh GHD goodness all ready to go.. Looking forward to seeing you all Xx

ps: I've copy & pasted the info from our level 2 email:

📧 Looking forward to seeing you!! There are a few wee changes to keep everyone safe in salon during level two, as follows:

Please come alone, no extra visitors..
>
> Please come with clean hair, washed same day, or day before would be my recommendation..
>
> Wearing masks will be required.. We recommend to bring your own if you can, but you must make sure they are secured behind your ears -so we can access your hair!! We will have some disposable masks in salon available for purchase, adding $3 onto your bill..
>
> We are unable to provide magazines, please bring your own book, or device for entertainment, we can give you the WIFI code..
>
> We are unable to serve drinks, so please bring your own bottle of water, or anything else you would like to drink, tea coffee etc -yes even booze lol..
>
> Hand sanitiser will be provided upon entry & before leaving the salon..
>
> Only bring in what you need, please leave any extra belongings in your car..
>
> Cash is discouraged for payment, your options will be eftpos, credit or bank transfer..
>
> If you are feeling unwell, you must reshedule your appt for another time..
>
> Well, that's a bit of a stink email! But it is important to me to keep everyone safe & we understand there will be a bit of anxiety as we all re enter the world, so please bear with us as we fumble through our new routine..
>
> Thanks so much for your patience & understanding during this time..
>
> Many thanks,
> Caren Xx

Our Story

Southland’s very own house of tailormade colour & style.. Leading the way with the latest colour, cut, blowdry and upstyling services.. Designed & directed by Caren Mackay, an award winning local senior stylist .. ‘The turning point in my career was finding myself working in an environment where I had to bend who I was to “succeed” & realizing my friends & family either couldn’t afford to come in, or didn’t feel comfortable walking in the door.. As my frustration grew, my lightbulb moment finally came, “I don’t need any of this flashy [email protected]*t, I just need somewhere to DOHAIR!!” My leap of faith began that day, I popped up in a dinky wee salon in the suburbs, long story short, Do Hair was born & we ended up with our gorgeous, unique space.. Never in a million years did I think I would create a space like this, especially not on that day I walked out!’

This is really just the beginning of our story, so much has happened since yet there are many more years ahead, so watch this space Xx
