About Justin
Justin’s hairdressing journey started 18 years ago as as a fresh-faced 16 year old right out of High School starting with a nine-month course at what was then CPIT (now ARA). With the foundation course under his belt, he completed a three year apprenticeship with Strands Hair Company on Lichfield Street.

Justin has been home to Southland a few times, during one of which he was privileged to work in his home town’s top salon. That proved to be quite a novelty for the community… there hadn’t been a male stylist there for 20 years! Having broken the mould, Justin paved the way for the many talented young men to have worked there since!

While he loves all aspects of hairdressing, Justin’s specialties include classic colouring, foilayage and highlights.  He loves meeting people from all walks of life, sharing experiences and knowledge and gets great satisfaction from making people look and feel their best after waving his magic wand!

Home hair care pro tip:
For those with luscious curly manes use a mircofibre towel instead of a regular towel to scrunch the excess moisture out of your hair as this will help to reduce the amount of frizzy’s a regular towel would create.
When They’re Not Working
First thing he does when he gets home: I yell out “ Hey Honey I’m Home” at the top of my lungs as it makes my partner cringe love annoying him!
