Meet The Team
Suzanne - Salon Owner
When I started Hype Hair Spa in 2010 I had a vision it would be so much more than hair. I wanted it to be a place where you can come and be pampered, where nothing is more important than you. I have created a salon environment where hairdressers love to work and clients love to visit.
Now with over 25+ years experience in the industry I am committed to consistently providing my clients with new ideas and inspiration to ensure they have fabulous hair. I love building a connection and a relationship with my clients so their time at Hype is special and I get to make every person that sits in my chair feel great about themselves. My passion is being a mentor and supporter to my team at Hype.
Teaching and encouraging them to be the best hairdressers, providing great customer service is one way I can insure that clients will be happy with any of my staff looking after them.
Out of the salon I love spending time with my teenage kids, husband and dog Gusto. I have a passion for travel and can"t wait to be able to again soon. I love cooking so enjoy entertaining, going out to restaurants and of course drinking good wine.

Hayley - Senior Stylist
"I have been hairdressing for 24 years and still every day excites me. I have had a few different roles in the industry, working and training in top salons in Auckland, owned my own salon and also worked in hairdressing technical support.
I have a huge passion for my job, as much as the day I started. I like to think of myself as an all-rounded stylist. I love cutting, colouring and styling however I do have a special love for soft blondes and balayage and love seeing how a new cut or colour can make my client look and feel.
I’m always up skilling with new cutting and colouring techniques which I love to offer to my clients giving them fresh looks every visit.I love meeting people, and making them feel good about themselves.
I love to have a laugh with my clients, all whilst providing a professional service. I will always make sure my clients needs come first without compromising the hair and always enjoy their time at Hype.
I love being part of the Hype team, we all work together and everyday I get to make a difference in someone's day, either making clients feel great or helping the team . It’s fun, rewarding and no day is the same. I love it!
Out of the salon I enjoy spending time with my husband, my beautiful 2 girls Ameila and Khloe and my beautiful 4 legged boy Brody. I love all animals and love going to the beach, walking along the rocks looking for sea creatures and of course finishing the day with a lovely Gin.

Kylie - Senior Stylist
I started my hairdressing career in England, once I qualified I had the urge to travel
so I left England to head down-under. After spending time traveling and hairdressing
in Australia I decided to move to Auckland. This is where I fell in love with NZ and my now husband Ben.
I love hairdressing as I'm always learning new skills. There is nothing better than a great before and after photo and seeing my client leaving the salon feeling and looking amazing.
Known for my love of blondes, seamless natural colours, I’m always bring my
“A game” with a passion to create effortlessly beautiful hair.
I'm very passionate about a great consultation and the right home haircare. Offering my clients the best advice to help them have beautiful hair with ease - not only in my chair, but every day!
The best thing is I have a great life balance at Hype and can still use my creative skills at working as a part time stylist and then I have time enjoying being a Mum with my gorgeous baby boy Oliver. I enjoy spending time with my family down at the beach enjoying the sunshine and going for swims. Hanging with my fur baby Stormizes dreaming about when we can travel again and I love food and of course a glass of wine!
