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.


Maternity Leave

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. When she's not in the salon, you'll find her out and about in the Hokowhitu with her wee daughter Annie Jayne with husband Scott, filling every ounce of spare time with family, friends, baking up a storm in her kitchen, and squeezing in cheeky dinner dates.


Maternity Leave

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 in 2015. When Kyra’s not thriving off creating beautiful hair, you’ll find her in the outdoors or dabbling in new things. And now, having welcomed her beautiful daughter Demi in early 2022, Kyra's hands are even more full.

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 two gorgeous boys - Cooper and Miller - and partner Cam.  You can check out some of Ashley's latest work on her Instagram account @hair__by__ash

Emerging Senior

Taking on New Clients

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


Apprentice, 2nd Year

Bridget Roodt

Taking on New Clients

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!

Ella Fleming

Taking on New Clients

Ella joins the ranks as an apprentice bringing her love of creativity and people to our team. “I’ve wanted to be a hairdresser for all of my life. I’m a social butterfly,” says Ella. Described as a bit of a hoot, not to mention very warm and friendly, you can expect a fabulous head massage at the basin and a lovely presence next time you’re in the salon.


Need an excuse to experiment with soft, pretty autumnal hues? Ella will undoubtedly steer you towards your dream colour as these are her right up her alley.  We can’t wait to see Ella’s talents develop alongside our gifted team of apprentices.
