Louise Simpson Hair Studio

This salon manages to create an urban feel in a village location. Add a friendly vibe and true excellence in cuts and colours and it’s easy to see why Louise Simpson has hit on a winning formula at her iconic salon in Devonport.
She has been translating hair trends and the accompanying feel-good factor to clients at her Victoria Road salon for over 14 years.
The mum-of-two has a warmth and professionalism that explains the enduring appeal of her business, which she has been able to keep at the forefront of New Zealand hair design for well over a decade.
The studio’s vibe is fun and friendly, with her team of eight stylists sharing Louise’s passion for delivering the best cuts and colours. They use leading brand Kerastase products and, crucially, give great service to all who set foot into this vibrant hub of hairstyling.
The stylists keep up to date with the latest fashions by attending industry seminars, workshops and shows and they look forward to delivering some dramatic cuts this season. Louise says: “We are seeing a lot of short styles coming through for winter – more short styles than I’ve seen for a long time. Winter is always a good time for a change of style and for pulling off a strong, new look.”
The Steam Pod is the latest technology to hit the studio, which gives customers a new styling experience. Stylist James says: “It’s for all the clients who have been fans of hair straighteners but have fried their hair! It’s an amazing way to repair damage to the hair.”
James and his colleague Benny, familiar faces on the North Shore hair scene, have recently moved to the Louise Simpson Hair Studio, after selling James’s former Takapuna-based business. James has over 45 years’ experience in the industry and is delighted to now be based at the salon. He says: “It’s a really nice, laid back environment here in Devonport. I’m loving the relaxed vibe here and I’m enjoying delivering a soulful experience to new and returning clients.”
As a special for May, the salon is offering half price cuts with James & Benny. The pair will also be available for appointments at the salon on Mondays from this month.
Louise added: “We’re a well-established, successful business and we pride ourselves on great service.”
“…modern hair is no longer just straight or curly – it’s all the textures in between. A feeling, rather than a trend.” This is what the studio’s stylish website , which perfectly reflects the Devonport salon, says.
Let your feelings translate to your look this winter, and let great hair radiate a fantastic feeling!
