Finalists for Team of the Year Industry Awards – oh yessss!

Hair done… Check. Face on… Check. Glad rag’s on… Check. And we’re off to the 2016 Industry Awards night that was held last night at the Studio on K-Road.

Enter the room into a sea of hairdressers all looking fabulous and predominantly wearing black. Wine glasses are clinking, hugs and smiles shared as we reunite with fellow hair crafters.

The night kicks off with short show’s by New Zealand and International industry leaders to inspire our creative minds.

Finally, the moment of all of us has been waiting for. Who will be the winners?

Unfortunately, it wasn’t our time last night – the award went to Three Hairdressing from Whangarei. However being named one of five finalists in the Team of the Year category is incredibly exciting and humbling.

Competition aside, I am extremely grateful to work and create alongside my talented crew. Seeing what we can create not only on camera but every day on our beautiful clients is winning to me.

Behold our “New Grunge” inpired collection.

AND… here’s  a sneek peak of behind the scenes at the shoot.

Word’s from our newest stylist Kirsty Hedley…

 What do you love about being a hair stylist?

The thing I love most about the industry is how you can make someone feel.   How they put all trust in you to do something on them and the confidence that comes from that.  I’ll always continue to further myself in gaining new skills and knowledge that will help me to achieve my clients dream hair.

What’s the most frequent problem that your clients come to you with?

I find that a lot of my client’s struggle with finding time for themselves.  They’re busy with their lives, careers, and families and don’t have a lot of time in the morning to spend hours preening themselves.   However, it’s still important to them that they are presented nicely, both for themselves and how they like to appear.  I strive to give my clients achievable looks.

Common Thread is a sustainably focused salon… So what does sustainability mean to you?

In the world full of people who rapidly want more from the world, I honestly believe we need to slow down, make conscious decisions and give back to what we have taken from.

You specialise in Indian Head Massage… What is it and why do you enjoy doing it?

Indian head massage is a traditional massage that’s been practiced in India for over 4000 years.  It’s now been tailored and continually developed to suit our modern lifestyle.  There are many benefits from IHM.  It’s used for relaxation, relief from headaches, improved concentration, and circulation.  What I love about IHM is the time you have prioritized for yourself, to feel time slowing down – even if it is just for a moment.

You’ve just directed your first collection….. Tell us about your photo shoot.

The concept behind my collection was to show strength.  How a simplistic, beautiful and strong women can be.  This was my first collection, so I’m proud of what I’ve achieved.  When it comes to my next collection, I’m going to portray and even stronger more editorial look.
