Another year of solitude done & dusted, with my lil sossys by my side.. We recently shot away for a few nights exploring Lawrence & Ettrick.. No plans, just loaded up the mini & made a beeline to a cute lil airbnb for a rest..
Guys, I urge you not to stay at home for fear of covid.. It's totally possible to drive 1-2hrs each way for a total change of scene, without the need to stay the night!! Don't over complicate it, leave after breakfast & come back before dinner if need be..
Our lil towns need you to fill up at their local gas stations or grab a couple kgs of fruit from their farmers stalls, or lunch from a cafe..

Stunning 1st lights from this afternoon! Jess had been told her whole life how gorgeous her hair is, such vibrant colour & ringlets.. But, you know, it doesn't mean we can't have a bit of fun !!
Pretty lil, -no commitment- goldy lights that will glisten through the curls or if she wears her hair straight.. We used the new @lorealpro #metaldetox treatment to protect the structure of the hair & cut through any impurities for a clean colour result Xx

Sneaking into my 'workshop' late last night to bundle up a pressie for a hubby to pick up this morning!!
Omg, verrrry rusty on the old gift wrapping, but hopefully another dozen should get me reeeeal good in no time I reckon!!
If you are stuck on what to buy the wifey, or your Mumma this festive season -with no idea what she needs, my recommendation would be one of our GHD Helios or Flight hairdryers, or you can't go wrong with a hotbrush!! Esp if mornings tend to be chaotic, if she's struggling to get out the door with a style that lasts all day Xx

Never mind the Xmas hairdo, what about the 'WHILE THE KIDS ARE STILL AT SCHOOL HAIRDO?'

Next week:
12.30 Tues,
12pm Wed
12.45, 4.15 or 5.30 Thurs..

If you are booked this week, we need to see your vax pass via email to confirm your appt, as we don't have an assistant or receptionist to greet you at the door.. [email protected]

Please PM me to grab one of this week's spots, for colour +cut or cut +blowave.. Or to book something for the following 2 weeks..

I conveniently live next door, so can also arrange a time that suits if you need to grab some GHD or Pureology giftsets too Xx

LASTLY, PLEASE SHARE my page, or a recent post to your timeline so your friends know I'm not that much of a weirdo 🤣

WARNING: The womenfolk are about to cast themselves aside, as we approach the ‘Festive better not season’.. Putting everyone else before themselves..
I get it, I’m not materialistic either, but we have all had a rough year right?
So, how awesome would it be to surprise your Queen with the Gift of 'Good Hair Days?'
No need to feel overwhelmed.. As your Local GHD Dealer, I can determine the perfect model of GHD styler, hotbrush or hairdryer simply from a photograph & a couple of questions..
We are full to the brim with giftsets, discounted stylers, vouchers & Pureology haircare kits.. Offering free giftwrapping & personalized card upon request..
Put an end to the blast, sizzle & fry of the morning routine once and for all.. Together we can show your special someone how much you love & appreciate them this festive season..
PM me to arrange pick up over the weekend 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
