Healthy hair - here I come

May 10, 2024

Finally I found my go-to hairdresser. Sharon really makes me wanting to look after my hair much more. I never had a better and honest consultation for my hair type! Thank you so much! Such a generous, knowledgeable and lovely lady! I trusted the process and I got rewarded with much healthier hair I ever imagined. Thanks again


Thin curly hair lovin

March 18, 2024

What a find, I’ve struggled with my frizzy thinning curly hair for years and reached out to Sharon for a cut n color and some hair lovin. I was not disappointed; I went from long n grey to short and dark and I’m loving it. Think it’s one of the best cuts I’ve ever had, it just sits right with minimal fuss. It just makes me feel good, and I would recommend anyone with curly hair(or not) to reach out to her, you won’t regret it!


Never disappoints

March 7, 2024

I have had such difficulty finding a hair dresser that can optimize my fine curly hair, and Sharon has been a godsend. With both cut and colour, I’m always happy. She even had me back the day after we trialed something new that I didn’t completely love, on her day off, to redo it completely free of charge. Couldn’t recommend anyone more.


The ultimate compliment

March 7, 2024

I was commenting to a friend that I liked her new haircut. She stated “you always look like you just left the hair salon” where do you go. Given that I have very fine hair and not a lot of it I would say that’s the ultimate compliment to Sharon and the great work she does.


Always Happy

February 27, 2024

I’ve been going to Sharon for approximately 3 years and I’m always happy. It’s a relaxed environment and I’m always taken care of. Thanks for the excellent service!


I will be with her forever

October 3, 2023

If you have curls allow only Sharon to cut your hair. People stop me in the street to comment on my curls and cut! Sharon is not only a great hairdresser but her advice on products is great too. She sells chemical free products making the curls glisten shine and manageable. I will be with her forever.

Highly recommended

October 3, 2023

I have been with Sharon for a few months and have noticed a visible difference in my hair health as well as getting compliments and other women wanting to know who does my hair. Sharon is as lovely as she is talented and I always enjoy my time at the Changing Room, with herbal teas and home baking from Sharon’s amazing mum – who wouldn’t! I have allergies and Sharon’s organic hair products are awesome – great coverage and great for my hair and scalp. Highly recommended.

A great experience all round

September 3, 2023

This lovely hair salon is in the CBD of Tauranga City. Sharon was an absolute master at creating a really modern look. I had my hair dyed as well as cut and I am thrilled with the result. So happy! Really enjoyed reading all the latest magazines while munching on some delicious baking with a hot cup of coffee. A great experience all round.

Messy frizzy curls

August 2, 2023

I had messy frizzy curls that badly needs saving, thanks to Sharon who did an excellent work in transforming my hair into a crowing glory. Just tell your hair concerns and Sharon will do her magic, such an expert indeed.


Pleasurable, relaxing experience

April 27, 2023

What a pleasurable, relaxing experience having your hair done by Sharon. She new exactly what would work with my skin tone and face shape. Home baking and coffee was the cherry on top, not to mention that she went out of her way to fit me in at short notice. Thank you Sharon.


Sharon won’t disappoint

March 17, 2023

I’ve got naturally curly hair. It can be a rough ride for curly-haired people out there trying to find a hairdresser that actually knows how to cut curly hair, and not just say they do. I had completely given up of finding someone skilled enough to cut curly hair — to the stage that my previous last hair cut was 2 years ago! I was just so sick of pouring money down the drain and spending the next 6-8 months trying to grow out terrible cuts. I came across reviews for Sharon and thought I’d give it last one shot. Sharon won’t disappoint; she’s skilled, knowledgable and lovely… and her Mum makes the best lemon slice! Wellington’s loss is definitely Tauranga’s gain. We are super lucky to have such a gem of a hairdresser with Sharon. 🙂


The results were great

March 10, 2023

I was in need of urgent hair repair after an epic disaster elsewhere. My first 10 minutes with Sharon and I knew I was in safe hands. The results were great and I was reassured, finally of finding the salon for me. Thanks to Sharon I can now confidently appear in public without a hat on. My husband was also feeling good about my look and as happy as I am. The approach, skill and a genuine desire to make me feel good about myself spoke volumes on Sharon’s passion for her craft.


New funky style

I always love going to Sharon. Not only does she know how to do my hair and manage my curls, she’s also great company and offers wonderful service. She has a great range of products that help keep my hair in great condition. I would highly recommend her.


She understands naturally curly hair and also great with colour

October 22, 2021

So happy to have found Sharon last year. Was having a nightmare up until then as my hair was changing due to age. Love the fact she understands naturally curly hair and also great with colour. Also love all the products she uses not to mention the homemade baking treats! Thanks Sharon for all your hard work.



September 24, 2021

I’ve been to Sharon once for haircut and color. She was amazing! Not only did she do a great job on my hair but she also showed me things i could do to keep my hair healthy. I have been searching high and low for the right hairdresser and I am so happy that I finally found her. I constantly get compliments on my hair since going to her. I can’t forget to mention the delicious lemon slice she served to me made by her mother. I felt very pampered through the entire appointment. Sharon is a lovely person to talk to as well. I will definitely be booking with her again and again.


Definitely recommend!

June 15, 2021

Have only been once, but its enough to say it was great. It was a great haircut, and Sharon is a nice and friendly hair dresser who makes the experience nice and pleasant. Would definitely recommend!


A very talented lady

July 8, 2020

I have been a client of Sharon’s for 5 years. A very talented lady in all aspects of hair styling.

I have very fine hair which limits options for certain hairstyles,Sharon always has the remedy.

The cup of tea or coffee and her Mum’s homemade slice is a winner as well. Highly recommend.

I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else

September 4, 2019

I’ve been a client of Sharon’s for around 3 years. Prior to finding her I had never been a ‘regular client’ anywhere. Now I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else, and I always lock in my next appointment before I leave. My reasons? Sharon is highly skilled in her profession, I always leave feeling fabulous. She is very approachable, honest and has great ideas. Not only does she understand hair, what suits her client but she understands what works for the individual and what they can maintain. The products she uses and sells are safe, kind to hair and beautiful to use. Aside from that she is easy to spend time with, it’s like popping in to visit a friend, not to mention the great Coffee & her mums baking…

I must mention also, Sharon did my hair for my wedding this year and I felt amazing, she did a beautiful job and it lasted through the rigours of a long hot day. Thank you Sharon!
