Sorry for our absence lately.

But we are here now.

Today's blog is based around steam punk.

This look started heavily around the 1980's/1990's
A sort of mix of fantasy, science fiction, alternate history.

this look has a heavy industrial look to it.
and is often styled of what people from the Victorian area, thought future contraptions and inventions may look like.

If you love the look, or want to know more.
maybe even fancy a night out
Why not head along to Tamatea High school on the 12th of September, and be transported out of this world, into a alternate universe.
With a steam punk inspired evening, with jewellery, cat walk, and nibbles.

The students are working hard to put on a massive night, that should be amazing!!

12th September
Tamatea High School (Napier)
$2 on the door.

Be there, or be square, or maybe oblong.

Till next time
as always, your team at

A Wedding Experience

Last weekend the Pure Hair Team did 9 models hair for Gowns on Gloucester bridal
show at Church Road Winery
Kelly, Alisha and Teagan got amazing reviews for the hairstyles they created
to complement the bridal gowns and under garments displayed for this event.
Each model had a different style to show the ability of the staff at Pure Hair.
Teagan did 4 of the models hair,  and was outstanding!! as he is only in his 2nd year of
apprenticeship.  One of the models who is also engaged to be married next year has asked
if Teagan will be her stylist for her wedding day.  Alisha's loose fish tail braid was the most liked
style of the day.
We will show you some more photo's from this event soon.

Good Evening Bloggers!!

Today, I have taken over control of the blog (well, I like to think)

Firstly, My name is Teagan, I'm the only guy here, and only apprentice!!
I have been here about 8 months all together.
Busy busy training and assisting.

Secondly, I would like to introduce you to my friends.
First up, Image one and two, is one of our lovely stylist's Sam!
She's pretty amazing, She is sporting my new penny board!!
I skate to work, its great for the environment, and my thighs!
Plus, I'm a hopeless saver, and can't afford a car because of shopping habits.

Next up, is my lovely mother, She had been growing her hair for some time, and when I needed a cut model, she rose to the occasion, not that she had any say.
The cut, thankfully grew on her with a few hours.

Last but not least is lovely Mitchel, or Mitch.
He willingly let me shave his hair off to practise for our competitions!
he's been such a good model for my men's cutting training.

Any way, enough about me.
Enjoy your evening
