A few wee snaps from our mini getaway to Beaumont & surrounds last week.. Definitely an upgrade of climate & slow pace of life in the middle of nowhere.. We stayed at the former Beaumont school (built 1800's).. Was so cool complete with PE shed, tennis court & swimming pool..
Drove to Lawrence & saw the locals coming out of the night & day with MASSIVE ice creams one day, then onto Roxburgh the next where they took the p**s out of our Sossydawgs barking at everyone down the main street 🤣
Definitely recommend the area if you're itching to take your kiddies for a drive Xx

Spring has well and truly arrived, change is in the hair.. When we were younger, we would always wonder about the future, (the Jetsons) I’m here to remind you, it’s freakin 2021!! The future is now..
20yrs since GHD invented the original styler, fast forward to now with lots of exciting new solutions to solve all of our hair woes.. We can flatten, straighten, curl and lift our hair like never before..

My favourite common go-to hairstyle to carve out, is the bob.. Let me explain why:
We can tailor the shape to suit any hair texture, style personality or phase of life.. There are A LOT of ways to cut and style a bob haircut.. Drawing inspiration from Vidal Sassoon, Emma Stone’s choppy modern wavy bob, or crop it even shorter like Hilary Barry..
Combined with your unique features to truly make it your own..
Cut and coloured correctly, styling should require minimal effort on your part.. If you are open to trying new tools or ways of styling, we could change up your look throughout the week..
A bouncy hairstyle needs a foundation of styling product specifically for volume.. A round brush blow-dry with GHD Helios dryer (120km pr hr) and our new GHD Rise volumizing hotbrush is a gamechanger for maximum lift.. The new hotbrush looks a bit like a curling wand with a hot core & cool to touch bristles.. Allowing us to wind into the hair like a hot roller, or scoop into the roots for maximum lift, hold for 5-10secs then voila!! Create the 70’s inspired flick in your curtain bangs or face framing layers, or discover a new way to add soft waves to med-long hair types..

I am passionate about being ‘’your local GHD dealer’ I would LOVE to see you in salon for a FREE demo, we can go over all of the options specific to your personal hair journey, from foundational haircare right through to the finished look..
I have filmed several demos for my page, so please check them out, any questions or to shop our current GHD sale, I would love to hear from you Xx

New dress.. Who dis? It's important to me to try & finish some goals I had during lock down.. So, today I made my 1st ever cotton dress that I can actually wear in my everyday life.. I'm not very good at sewing, in fact it's taken almost 10yrs to completely make a garment without stuffing some part of it up.. Xx

HEY!! Happy weekend!! Here is a quick, easy lil demo of the GHD Rise Hotbrush, for a bouncy, wavy bob..
You'll see I'm using the hotbrush similar to a heated roller & curling iron in one.. The cool to touch 5mm bristles allow me to wind right up to my scalp for maximum volume..
We have x2 Rise hot brushes in our current sale for $260 (save $50).. As well as some other Awesome deals..
Perfect gift idea for spring babies, or to tuck away for Xmas.. This baby could be yours today via @laybuy.nz payment plan for just x6 easy payments..
Any questions, or to book your FREE in salon demo just PM me.. 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
