You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone as passionate about their trade as they are their people than Jayne.

With 40 years in the hairdressing industry, Jayne is a generous, kind, and supportive ‘mumma bear’ to her team of talented stylists and a breath of fresh air to her incredible clients. “I love having the ability to create opportunities for my team  to grow and blossom as stylists -- and humans.” Driven by a desire to connect with those in her community, Jayne’s dedication to Veronica Jayne in Hokowhitu Village since 2000 has made the salon an antidote to the ailments of modern life. A place where women can relax, unwind, and leave feeling restored and pampered. When Jayne’s not dishing out divine brush blow waves, you’ll find her surrounded by her family, building a lovely new home with her husband, Peter, in the garden, or taking her two dogs Jackson and Cilla on plenty of walks.

Having watched her mum, Jayne, work in the salon from a young age,  Aimee knew that growing up to work alongside her was a given. Aimee simply adores her clients; making them feel special, leaving lighter and brighter -- and we’re not just talking about hair colour. Inspired by the growth and passion demonstrated in the team, you can expect plenty of laughter and positivity from Aimee with each and every visit. Aimee is partial to creating chic bobs, and shiny, beautiful strands. In 2020, Aimee is planning a wedding, building a new home and filling every ounce of spare time with family, friends, road trips, long dinners and walks with Lulu her dog.

Don’t let Kyra’s enviable long locks fool you, this experienced stylist knows her way around short, textured and trendy cuts, and achieving gorgeous colours to match. “Hairdressing is a forever changing and creative industry,” says Kyra. “I love making my clients look and feel beautiful.” Described as having a good sense of humour, a great laugh and sincere talent, Kyra moved to Palmerston North from Kerikeri when Jayne expanded the salon five years ago. When Kyra’s not thriving off creating beautiful hair, you’ll find her in the outdoors or dabbling in new things.

This Kérastase Ambassador will leave you feeling confident and beautiful. With 34 years in the industry, Dara is your go-to for perfecting your personal cut and style. Having moved to Palmerston North from Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands in 2018, Dara has been a welcomed addition to the Veronica Jayne team. While she’s happy to see the back of spiral perms, Dara is all about bringing back the creative ‘beachy’ waves via perming (if you dare). Dara is caring, kind, thoughtful and bubbly… and a big fan of online shopping. Discover your best hair yet with an appointment with our darling Dara.

The master of curly hair and strong styles, Natalie has always loved everything “hair”. In an industry that has a proclivity to change and evolve, Natalie’s end goal of making her clients feel special has never waned. Inspired by Karen Walker’s style and innovation, plus a love of shoes, Natalie’s eye for all things fashionable coupled with her 30 years' experience lets you know you’re in good hands for your next update. Natalie has been a valuable part of the Veronica Jayne team since 2017. And on the topic of values, few rate as highly as family for this mother of twins. The love she has for her family is what makes her such a kind and caring asset to the team. 

Queen of the dramatic before and after reveal, Ashley can take lacklustre locks and transform them into a covetable mane faster than you can summon the hair flip emoji. While Ashley might be relatively new to the Veronica Jayne team, she comes with more than seven years’ experience from her previous hometown, Wellington.  Ashley loves creating blonde and balayage styles and is always down for a friendly yarn. When she’s not making people look amazing in the salon, you’ll find Ashley shopping, saving ‘grams of chic interior designs, or with her family, friends, partner Cam and puppy Neo.  You can check out some of this mum-to-be's latest work on her Instagram account @hair__by__ash

This self-proclaimed braiding Queen and master setter might have you laughing in stitches but make no mistake, Hannah is one hard-working apprentice who has certainly earned her keep in the Veronica Jayne team. Having always loved the beauty industry, hair - and its ever-changing and enduring sensibility - is what got Hannah hooked. Considering the Veronica Jayne salon more of a family than a workplace, Hannah says “it’s a place where everyone puts their all into but knows how to have fun.” While Hannah isn’t keen on the return of the ‘70s pageboy cut, she’ll welcome Farah Fawcett’s voluminous waves with open arms any day of the week. You can see her latest work on her Instagram account here: @hanmayhair

If you’re desperately seeking sun-kissed hair and blow waves for days, you’ll want to book in with our lovely Danielle. “I love meeting new people and hearing their stories and life journeys,” Danielle admits on what inspired her to pursue hairdressing. Danielle loves to make people feel confident in their appearance and is one of the most easy-going members of the Veronica Jayne team. Her calm yet happy disposition is a true treat upon your visit, and when she’s not in the salon making our clients look fabulous, she’s trading in her scissors for a different set of tools… Home renovations.

Originally from a small town called Secunda in South Africa, Bridget isn’t just new to Veronica Jayne but to New Zealand as well, having only moved here in 2019. Her interest in hair dates back to when Bridget was in school; being the go-to for all of her friends. At Veronica Jayne, Bridget thinks of the team as family: “everyone here is so full of love and everyone always has a smile on their face.” Outside of the salon, you’ll find her busy reading a book or two, or spending time with family and friends.


We love having young, talented individuals who thrive in our team environment. Make sure you give Bridget a warm welcome next time you’re in!
