Submitted by cuttingedgehair on Thu, 17/08/2017 - 4:04pm

WINNING! Wahoo ! I finally won - say hello to the best technical barber in Taranaki; I have the trophy front and centre on the desk. You can view ' The Ray Astwood Barbering Challenge' hunk of steal when you come in ! This awesome achievement means I will represent the region at the NZARH Supreme Hair Awards in October. Stoked to have finally won in the region ( I was a bit sick of 2nd, 3rd and 4th ha ha) Donna and Steph both entered, with Donna designing her 'viking warrior woman' and 'evil queen' inspired looks and Steph designing a galaxy inspired colour creation, you view her image on the slide show at the top of the site...Steph also doubled as my event manager on the day, ushering my models around and generally keeping my competitive day running smooth ! Thanks team ! They both admitted after the comp - Thank goodness I won ! It was safe to be back at work on Tuesday, trophy in hand lol.

Full steam ahead on the home front - I will be off to New Zealand Fashion Week #NZFW at the end of the month working backstage with the models and designers as a dresser - perks are seeing the final touches to all of the looks on the shows ! I absolutley love the pace and changing up my post. I have splashed out on a ticket to what is going to be the coolest chic show of the week- #StolenGirlfriendsClub 's highly anticipated off site affair. Im psyched !

Early October is the #NZARH Supreme Hair Nationals where I will compete for the title in NZ, then a week later I head to Melbourne for the 2017 #Redken conference. My 'cup' will be overflowing with creative influence running through my veins...then it is pretty much christmas OMG !

We have a few goodies to get you through the end of winter... thinking of a tropical break? Come in and get your travel pack!  #Redken and #Pureology mini shampoo conditioner and treatment ! Easy ! from $21

Root Fusion - our spray on camoflage for those pesky greys has been flying out the door, fool proof application, so no excuses, look sharp and youthfull with a quick air brush through your centre part, fool your friends $27. Get creative and use as a temporary  ombre' ask me how !

Glow Dry Diamond Oil for shatterproof shine is aaaaaaaamazing ! New to the range is Glow Dry Gloss Scrub - think facial for your hair, removes impurities, environmental effects, build up, and is totally colour safe so it won't strip your colour...who doesn't love a decent scalp scrub too $35 

over and out !

MID YEAR VIBES 31-05-2017

Submitted by cuttingedgehair on Wed, 31/05/2017 - 11:49am

Far out summer has come and gone like a quick drink between friends!

 

As the days are shorter and darker we hunt new inspiration from our ever changing environment, seeking hints of warmth from the cooler days, we turn to the many hues of the sunset - apricot, lemonade fizz and charasmatic burnt copper. Its all about a combination pallet of authentic and expensive feeling tones and asthetics ... smokey quartz, gold leaf, nude, and powdered blonde feature along side indulgent muted wine and chocolate pairings. Techniques are habitual feeling and coherent - seemless to the eye for the conventional street goer. For those with edge we have planetary vibes with bolder beats reigning from our recent launch of #CITYBEATS - full beam for the brave and diluted and pastalised for the lighter of us.  Ask us about the next biggest move in salon custom hair colour  #HDRESOLUTION for intense clarity, shine and high reflectivity for you and your individual mantra.

 

Back on the home front I've been behind the scenes of daily salon life shooting a couple of collections, one of my best to date - for Industry Hairdresser of the Year 2017, wasnt a finalist this time folks but I'm so proud of the looks I achieved! It was a fantastic night up in Auckland rubbing shoulders with the best in the business 'keeping up appearances' - congratulations to the winners on the night.

I have my fingers crossed - a week from now the Trend Vision 2017 finalists will be announced, with 2 finalist positions under my belt I am certainly hoping for another....stay tuned to find out.

 

Check out my social media feeds for updates and what my current likes are all about  Brenda_Ardern on #instagram, click the LIKE button for Facebook updates here on the site. 

 

Donna competed in our local Lyndsay Loveridge Challenge on sunday picking up a 3rd place in the blow dry event ! wahoo ! Her technical rope twist braid caused a lot of interest on the day - but unfortunately not from the judges... but onwards and upwards as we start turning our hand to our Regional Hairdressing Awards on 31 July look for updates so you can come and support us on the day and see some amazing hair.

 

Steph has well and truly settled in to life at #TheCuttingEdgeHairStudio with her local clientelle flocking down for seamless colour and shine from the hair stylist with longest hair around #FYI 189 million seconds long ! if you are sick of trying to grow your hair and some champ keeps chopping off more than necessary - just see her ! You wont be dissapointed. It frightens me how many people out there stay loyal to stylists and salons as more of a devil you know than the devil you dont approach - if you aren't happy with your hair say something or just try someone new ! 

 

We have 2 more exciting launches 'root fusion' a super easy spray to hide nasty regrowth ! And our very own #CUSTOM a customised coloured take home toner for you and only you! Come and get yours.

 

I am #HIRING ! If you are a compentent stylist with some cool vibes who wants to "be part of it" and show off your talents I want to hear from you - so dont be shy and get intouch. 

 

Thanks for reading and as always we love to see you down at salon.

Until next drinks!

 

Your Superstylist Brenda x

Yet again time is flying by between updates! We are just coming out of the action...one week rolling into the next.

Redken Conference in Queenstown - who wouldn't have loved the place, picturesque and a visual feast for the eyes. Redken really turned it on with insightful thought provoking speakers. Richard Kavanagh-Top session stylist in Australasia and well known around the world, gave us a look into his life and his message, Rowan Spinks - gave a great talk on social media focusing on Facebook and Instagram ( i hope you are following us on Facebook at @thecuttingedgehairstudio or look me up on Instagram Brenda _Ardern ) Steve Dunstan from Huffer also told of his trials and tribulations in business, that gave us a keeping it real feel. 10/10 on the entertainment front...it was soooo cool ! hanging out with the Redken gang, and Steve and friend Marc Moore  (name drop #stolengirlfriendsclub) Dj'ing -  also a dance off battle round combo with  P.Diggs and co. from #shapeshifter. It didn't end there with a mystery bus trip to follow and "Winery Olympics" consisting of tasting and laser clay target shooting ( more practice required ) Our last speaker was truly the most inspirational and moving, tugging at the heart strings of all present. John McLean - His life after a devastating accident that left him a paraplegic and his amazing strength to overcome this to compete in triathlons as an able bodied person...what more could you do...and if you make a start ...that is more important as there is a chance you will make it to the finish line, very moving.

Tracey has also been to Auckland where she got the hot tips on Mens Hair fashion and styling, the finer points in life according to swept and styled clippered looks for you guys. If you haven't had the pleasure or looking for a better shape you guys know what to do...oh...call her !    or book online chose option -mens cut

Big congrats to Kendall who went for a swanky weekend at the Rendezvous Hotel where she received her graduation medal. Very cool. ( wasn't one in my day ...jealous)

Good Luck to Donna who has entered the Apprentice of the Year, and put herself forward for the Jasmine McBeth scholarship, we wait and see.......fingers crossed. Year 2 of polytech is flying by for her too, Donna is super savvy at cutting in the salon now and colour application, so if you would love her to look after your hair call us at the salon.

I have just got back from #NZFW ...fashion weekend to be exact , I got to experience the Runway life, dressing models and meeting the designers all backstage - very COOL and i would certainly do it again. My favourite and friendliest designers were Margi Robertson from NOM_D and Trelise Cooper ( see my selfies on instagram) and other posts.

It is a super busy month for us with the Taranaki Regional Hair Comps taking place last weekend, there were some amazing hairstyles all round.

BRENDA had the oppotunity to be working with @KristinaRussell and @PhillipBarwick  ( hair celebs from Sydney and International Redken Hair Artists ) and our Redken Artist Team here in N.Z. Highlights for me were also helping out at the HUFFER BASEMENT ( clothing label and venue for the show) with @Jack and the man @SeveDunstan himself pairing up outfits for the 32 models ! To add to the excitement I also got to tag along to dinner with our hair celebs ( thanks @Kyla-Rose !)  and the wine flowed !

KENDALL and DONNA made the drive up after work (legends) and we burnt off some calories on the dance floor at Sky City...and the rest is history! Lucky them hit the shops the next day meanwhile Brenda was up early to help prep for the show PHEWFFFFF !

Well lot's has happened since our last update...we had a great time competing at the regional hair comps ,Donna who has been doing work experience here at the salon picked up a second place, she was the only first year student to enter... Well done Donna !

 

Brenda went to Auckland to help out on Redken's biggest hair show of the year Papa's and pace, " it was awesome to work along side of these top blokes. Justin and Dmitri are fun guys with awesome talent ! "

Brenda and Tracey watched the show from the top floor of The Roxy, where our eyes feasted on the latest colour and cut trends, some up to date braids and fashion looks.

Us girls at the salon made it through dry July unscathed, or though Brenda and Tracey were some what out of practice drinking wine out in Auckland! Some laughs were had!

Kendall and Tracey are continuing their deal for new clients...ask them how to get 25% off at your next colour appointment.

Kendall will be sitting her final hair exam when she has the required amount of evidence , this is a numbers game people, so if you can help her out book with her today, don't forget if you are going out and want to look fab, why not get her to blow wave or style you for the occasion from $45, also don't wait till your next appointment to get your fringe sorted, ring her and sort it!

Session is this weekend, a hair and fashion show, you will see us there showcasing our looks at the event, come and watch, its a great night out that is something different, get the girls together.

Brenda's Brag........ Well i finally made the crunch decision and I'm off to NEW YORK  CITY!!! This is the big smoke for sure, Redken headquarters is on 5th Ave. and that's where I'm heading!

I will be attending the Counterculture course. A counterculture is a subculture, a group whose behaviour deviates from the societal norm. Push it to the limits with design, colour and fashion that lie outside of normal experience. Counter culture will focus on global trends, creativity and culture. connect with artists from across the globe.

Explore new ways to create design, colour and finishing with experimental, and forward thinking business practices.

Hi, and thanks for checking out our news feed !

 

We will be keeping you updated with what we have been up to in and out of the salon, and also this is where we will post what HOT DEALS are happening !

 

Brenda has been swanning off here and there, mostly up to Auckland on and off this year helping with the REDKEN ARTIST TEAM, and most recently over to Sydney to the HAIR EXPO, where I couldn't resist a new pair of Viper blades... All the better to cut the hair !

 

I was lucky also to help  MANA DAVE with his colour work, as he was a finalist for NZ Hairdresser of the year, and was prepping for a seminar. The hair shows were so inspirational and I have come back to work with plenty of ideas.

 

Kendall and Tracey are off to REDKEN COLOUR 3:0  Next week to learn the latest and greatest colour techniques. They are both super excited and pumped ! Road Trip!!!!
