Emily Schipper

Salon Manager

Senior Stylist & Kerastase Ambassador 

Barbering Apprentice

Born and raised in Wanganui, I started at Hair Technique when I was 14, part time as the Saturday girl. Fast forward 13 years and my career in hairdressing has taken me to the other side of the world and back - and I LOVE it.

I have many hats in the salon from working on the floor doing hairdressing to training the apprentices and manager of our social media/computer aspects. I enjoy the hands on work I have come to know.

I enjoy doing all aspects of hairdressing, but if I had to choose I really enjoy giving the experience of change. Refreshing a look or simply changing a style can give lift and excitement. We have introduced our iPad to take photos of before and afters for clients to enjoy and with their permission, use on our social media outlets. You can view these in our gallery.

Men's cuts are also a great aspect in hairdressing dealing with the perfect fade and the new trends, we encourage men to experience our salon also. This helped push me into doing my Barbering apprenticeship to hone my skills for more technical men's work.

Being a Kerastase Ambassador is a great privilege for me. I pride myself on knowing exactly what the product is going to do for your hair and give full honesty on what works for you. In this role I train the stylists in the salon on new innovative products being released.
