Kate Jarrett - Director/Hair Extension Specialist
I suppose I have a bit of a funny story that leads me to where I am today! I'm the Owner/Director here at Loxy's and never in a million years saw myself doing this every day! My background is the corporate world, I had jobs... a lot of jobs. Many jobs and none of them that really fulfilled me. That's until Loxy's was born...
I have a great passion for hair extensions after having them myself for 12 years. Initially I had the traditional weave technique, I used to dread having my hair done because it was so painful and time consuming, but at the same time I was absolutely over the moon with the results and finally being able to have the volume and length I had always wanted. I then came across a technician who used this micro-weave technique that was quick and painless to have put in. I eventually trained to do it myself (close to 13 years ago now) and haven't looked back since. I believe this micro-weave technique is by far the best hair extensions technique available and am very passionate about it! I've since trained in 5 more methods however only chosen to practice the micro weft system, which I wholeheartedly believe is the best for your locks. Despite not having a background in hairdressing, I’m extremely qualified and know all of the ins and outs of hair extensions.
Everything that we do at Loxy's is about being kind to your natural hair and taking a holistic approach to your hair which is why we feel so strongly about staying away from gluing/tapes/braiding. This also includes our clean colour range, Davines.
From literally a shack out the front of my house, to a salon on Ponsonby Road! Loxy's has gone from strength to strength in such a short space of time and that's thanks to our incredible clients and amazing team. I look forward to welcoming you into my salon and having you meet my fantastic team... they're the best and totally live and breathe the Loxy’s brand. I'm sure you'll love them just as much as I do!
