LOUISE | Book Now

I love working at BLAZE the salon is always busy and buzzing, 
From the phone ringing, the sound of the coffee machine preparing fresh hot delicious coffee, to the chit chat between stylists and their clients, it’s always a fun vibe. Being centered  in Newmarket is convenient as it’s close to Westfield where it’s always easy to find parking or grab lunch on your way to the salon. 
I’m the kind of girl who loves to be kept going, kept busy, so BLAZE is right up my street. 

Speaking of streets, I’m Irish and very proud to be Irish I’ve been living and working for BLAZE the past 5 years alongside our beautiful team. 
Each team member is unique and has something different to bring to the salon. 

I personally love creating blonde hair, whether your a cool sophisticated ash blonde or a warm golden beachy blonde,
I will always do my very best to help you create your perfect haircolour. 

Consultation is so important to me. This is where our plan is put in place, 
For many clients I will ask them to show me a picture of their desired hair. 
Then we can break down every part of that picture to ensure we are on the same page, before starting my work. 

I love to talk, anyone that knows me says ‘oh that’s Louise, you’ll hear her before you see her’ haha. I enjoy walking and boxing to help keep me fit and stay positive. 

 
   

KELLY LATU   |  Book Now

Welcome to Blaze hair salon.
I'm Kelly, the proud mumma bear of the BLAZE team.

You can find me busy on the floor during the week working along side some pretty clever people helping me out applying colour for you.
I've been doing hair for quite some time now and although I love it all, I particularly love crafting shorter shapes and variations of bobs.

Curly hair is also a fav of mine to cut.

When I'm not in the salon you'll find me in trackies and gumboots on our little lifestyle block tending to our animals and making the odd fun Tik Tok with my daughter Ava.

Mana and I really appreciate each and everyone of you that supports our salon. If we haven't meet before, come hang out and let's cut that hair shorter
Ps I'm not that person that cuts off way too much length if you don't want too

My favourite part about joining the Blaze team has been seeing all the creativity and talent from all the stylists! To be able to be a part of, and learn from such a fun and awesome team is the best.


Coming from north Auckland, its been incredibly eye-opening to see the artistry and vision hair can create, it's allowed me to explore and develop my own style as a hairdresser, and I'm thriving in it!


I am constantly inspired to create beautiful hair, and more specifically beautiful blondes, from platinums to lived-in looks, and a dash of creativite funky colours here and there. Vogue Italy and Fashion Weeks around the world always giving me ideas for those #hairgoals!


Outside of work, I love to go to the gym and play music and have a mild obsession with Thai food, which I also love to attempt to cook (and fail). If I'm ever looking for some hype music, my go-to is the 80's Throwbacks playlist on Spotify, it guarentees a lil boogie!

I really enjoy working at Blaze. The location of Blaze is very similar to that of my previous salon in Shanghai. 
I moved to New Zealand five years ago, I had been in Shanghai hairdressing with 15 years experience. When I was in Shanghai I used to work for several international salons, including Italy, France and Britain's salon. So for me, to work in New Zealand is not too much different, when the only thing different is my language is not good enough at the beginning,Sometimes I have trouble expressing myself, but I am lucky that my colleagues have always helped me improve. Now I have more confidence to communicate with my clients and let them know what I think and I can understand their needs.

I am very happy every time after serving our clients, to see that they like the hair I do for them, I also feel so proud. All Our clients are lovely and we always have a great time. It is a perfect job to make them happy in their busy lives for a few hours, enjoy our service and have beautiful hair. Our client also share their life stories with us, talking about which restaurants and foods they like, and share the happy hours of the holidays with us?That's why I love my job so much and have been able to do it for more than 20 years
I go to the gym two hours every day before work. I think it's very important for me, only by keeping a healthy body can I work better. Especially in the past two years, COVID-19 has constantly affected our normal life. I keep myself in good health and a positive attitude by working out.
