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 8 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 10 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, Kevin Murphy.
Outside of work, I am wife to Tane, and Mummy to Eden and Marley. My hobbies include reminiscing about the days I used to sleep in pre toddler, and yoga.
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!
Kelsey Limbrick - Stylist
We feel so SUPER lucky to have Kelsey join the Loxy’s family! Having been trained by one of our very own, it’s been the perfect transition. Kelsey honed her skills and perfected her craft at one of Auckland's most exclusive, top salons and is now ready to explore the world of extensions while continuing to practice all things hairdressing! Kelsey has been hairdressing for 7 years, is super passionate about her colour work and loves big transformations! When she isn't taking care of all your extension and hairdressing needs Kelsey can be found whipping up a storm in the kitchen, out on a bush walk or getting her groove on at a random gig!
While immersing herself in the Loxy’s extension technique Kelsey is the sweetest breathe of fresh air and the PERFECT addition to our Loxy’ s family.
Eve Lithgow - Stylist
Eve’s passion is creative colour. She loves creating an experience for her clients that leave them feeling and looking their absolute best! This girl has an amazing amount of experience in makeovers, editorial work and styling of hair. She has told me that one of her favourite things is creating visually stunning editorial shots that really show off her creative flair.
Eve really takes pride in creating a style and colour that works for each individual client and their needs. She’s a strong believer that each head of hair she works on is a representation of her craft and her results really do show how much pride she takes in her work!
Shanice Blannin - Stylist
We are so very fortunate to have Shanice join our Loxy’s family! She has been in the hairdressing game for 8 years now, she started right out of high school and has loved it ever since. Shanice absolutely loves working with blondes and balayage hair, and has studied overseas at the Vidal Sassoon Academy learning about the art of precision cutting.
What we love about Shanice is her passion for giving each of her clients an incredible experience, making sure that every one of them walks out the door feeling amazing. She joined us with experience in other methods of hair extensions but has since become a total convert to the Loxy’s method! Shanice is a bit of a gym bunny and loves her after work gym session, but she told me not to be fooled, she’s also a number 1 pizza and burger lover!
