**Gabs please scroll on by** Hi everyone, I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to help support Gabs and the crew through this difficult time for small businesses. If anyone is wanting to hear my idea/s I am happy to share this with you via PM. Looking forward to hearing from you.
EsmΓ© was so happy with the new haircut that Matt created for her. Thanks Matt!!!
Thank you to Spectra Hair for your support and donations for our volunteers at the Alzheimers Society (Manawatu).
Done by Madison and Gabs
I came in to help Madison as a model, it was cool I was listening to everything. Man if I had a mentor like Gabs I would still be hairdressing. I will be back I love the curly range, and I can a model at anytime.
Thanks team ❀️
One for you to try Meals :)

I know I'm terrible at taking selfies but just wanted to give a huge shout out to Spectra Hair for putting an end to the mop look! Amelia did a great job - worth a visit if your hair was looking like mine after the lock down!

We just worked 10 days straight & can still TikTok this good πŸ”₯πŸ™ŒπŸΌ πŸ˜…

In case you missed it yesterday, here is our 'What to expect' during your next appointment at Spectra. We would appreciate everyone keeping these things in mind on their next visit. πŸ“†

Thank you everyone! See you in Level 2️⃣!!!

The good news is in! The team at Spectra will be returning to work this Thursday, May 14th πŸ‘πŸ’ƒ

For everyone that has sent us an email or left a message, we will be following up with you next. And going forward PLEASE ONLY CALL US (leave a message and we will get back to you). Thank You!

We have extra staff to manage hygiene, basins and colour support. We will be well stocked, well cleaned and very excited to see you all. But if anyone is feeling compromised or uncertain please do let us know before you come in. And please keep in mind our Student Wednesday Specials are on hold until we all catch up.

Remember to be patient and if you are sick please stay home.

Our Alert Level 2 guidelines are below. We can't wait to welcome you back πŸ’ž

Every cape has had the 3 hour hot wash, our product has been delivered to Matt’s place & what Level 2 will look like for us is all planned out. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ¦ΉπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜·

Here's our Matt popping in to say "Hi" πŸ‘‹ #chatswithyourhairstylist

Spectra Hair's cover photo

Happy Easter, dear friends 🐣 Even in these unknown times we hope your homes are filled with joy & many blessings today. Love to you all ~ Team Spectra πŸ’™

A personal message from Gabs, to you our amazing Spectra family! We are missing you all so much and looking forward to having you back in our chairs soon. πŸ’ž

The lockdown journal of #teamspectra πŸ˜†

Gabs is walking Jeff daily (about 6km) & as you can see she’s also given herself a little trim with her spare pair of home scissors πŸ€ͺ It’s ok - just the fringe area. (Don’t try this at home!)

Meals is into LEGO challenges & Rhys is continually upstaging her! 😩

Matt has trained Jamie to do a hair fade on his hair 😳 She did really well & I’m sure a bit of YouTube helped.

Leone has planted a hedge with extra flowers & even let her own hair dry naturally 🧐(questionable decision πŸ˜‚), but Conrad loves her no matter what! Ha! ❀️

Demi wishes The Warehouse was open because she too wants more LEGO. And now needs a treatment for her bleached hair 😒 SNAP πŸ’₯πŸ’₯ Oh dear...Salon is closed! ⚑️⚑️

It’s not yet a week since we last walked around our workplace, when we last had a wine together & a big shutdown clean. But we are missing what we know so well. Serving our special clients, our friends.
But we do love eating at normal times & being home in the evenings, simple treats we often don’t experience. Rest assured though, when this is over, we’ll be ready to get back to Spectra as soon as we’ve been given the OK.

Remember Spectra family ~ keep safe & at home for as long as we need to!

Virtual hugs,
#teamspectra x

We changed our minds! After arriving into the salon this morning we have decided to put everyones safety first & we will be closing immediately. We'll keep you updated on when we will be back up & running, but don't worry you will be rescheduled if you had an appointment with us during this nation wide shutdown.

Just remember, we're all human and this is the first time any of us have had to deal with this kind of change/emergency/pandemic/craziness. So go easy on each other, be kind and step away from the box colour πŸ˜‚

Feel free to email us anytime - [email protected]

See you on the other side! Love Gabs and the team πŸ’“πŸ’—πŸ’ž

You already know we’re on it when it comes to cleaning, washing our hands & hygene practices at Spectra. But we have gone & stepped it up, baby!!!

The team have Dettol wipes, tissues & hand sanitizer for everyone & every surface available! 🧼 🧽 All being used on our front desk, eftpos machine, chair arms, door handles & any other surface we can find. 🦠❌ Watch out, you might get a swipe too! 😜

We take this seriously & are doing everything we can to protect our team & clients. We need our people, cause that’s what Hairdressers do! So let’s all continue to support small, local business & keep washing our hands! πŸ‘‹πŸ½

You may have already seen this! But last week Matt & Meals joined other awesome hairdressers from the Manawatu, for Great Shave 2020, at Awatapu College.

A bunch of super brave & courageous students & teachers right here! πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏽 #greatshave2020

Love my kids!

A HUGE thank you to everyone involved in the Awatapu Great Shave 2020 yesterday - especially the brave students and staff who shaved their hair and the wonderful hairdressers:
Matt and Amelia from Spectra
Tania from Trademarks
Kelly from The Hair Company
Jayd from BHB (also an ex pupil)

Shaun Kay has been busy this week! Teaming up with Placemaking Palmerston North and Palmy Unleashed to create vibrant city streets on Little Cuba & George Street. πŸ’₯ We lent our grand piano to the awesome pianist Kane Bruce Parsons, & he is bringing musical delights to our little corner of the world! 🎼🎹

This colour work is not a quick fix, it takes knowledge, skill, patience and then the dollars! But as we see from the response from all who have seen it, it is stunning ❀️
Matt can make this happen if you are prepared to love excellent styling! πŸ‘πŸ»
