Sonya has been hairdressing for over 18 years now and still possesses a fresh passion and love for hair and business. She previously owned a successful salon for 7 years, which was named runner up in the NZ salon of the year awards. Sonya then went on to tutor at Christchurch's top hairdressing school and still continues to assess apprentices in the industry. Any opportunity to put her hand up to any creative ventures she does, this sometimes includes photo shoots, catwalk show, and from time to time the odd celebrities hair.
She cares about every single client that sits in her chair, "I love building an atmosphere for our clients where they feel pampered and listened to, I want each client to leave the salon not only looking great but feeling different from the way they walked in".
