FIVE MINUTES WITH THE BOSS
When Nicky returned to Tauranga after working in London, Edinburgh and Sydney, she couldn’t find the perfect salon to work in. So, what did the experienced, driven hairdresser do? She opened her own.
“I wanted a small space but with all the opportunities of a large salon,” says Nicky, listing a strong team, a focus on training, a great hair product line, and ‘a unique experience’ as her must-haves.
Twenty-eight years in the business and Nicky is going from strength to strength. Her passion for nurturing young talent has seen her maintain a great team dynamic at En Jay.
“We work on our team values in the salon and it really sets the culture. We spend a lot of time together, so getting the right mix is very important.”

COLOUR YOUR HAIR? HERE’S OUR HOT TIPS FOR KEEPING IT HEALTHY.
New products and trends, better colouring methods, never-seen-before bright hues - En Jay has some great tips about the hottest shades, healthy-hair tips and plans for the future.
The key to beautiful, coloured hair:
As well as learning about the huge product range and the benefits for different hair types, we are firmly believe in the importance of in-salon treatments in keeping coloured hair healthy.
“The ‘PH BONDER’, Redken’s version of the popular ‘Olaplex’, helps maintain the hair’s natural ph level to ensure shiny, strong hair without breakage,” we say. “We add it to our colour formula and apply to the hair after the colour is rinsed out. We also have a take-home product to maintain your hair’s natural ph level in between salon visits.”
HAIR MYTHSWE’RE BUSTING THEM!
If you’ve heard stories about conditioner being a farce or that hair grows slower in winter - you might have had the wool pulled over your eyes! Today the Mount Maunganui En Jay hairdressing team busts five hair myths - so you know the truth and nothing but the truth!
#1: Bleach disappears when you colour over it.
False! Bleach is permanent. When you colour over it, the bleach is still sitting under your hair colour because bleach never washes out. The only way to get rid of bleach is to cut it out.
#2: Using clippers makes your hair grow thicker and faster.
False! Your hair will grow from the same follicle, the way it’s cut can make it appear thicker but it doesn’t alter the texture of your hair. Your hair grows at its own rate no matter how it’s cut.
