The start of 2015 has heralded a new beginning for Milford Hair Design. Local hairdressing icon Dawn Claydon has refreshed the vision for her Kitchener Road salon, with the introduction of a new salon manager who is already bringing a breath of fresh air to the talented team.
Introducing Paula Stevens...
Shore resident Paula Stevens is focused on establishing Milford Hair Design as a 'destination' salon for the fashion conscious.
She said: "I'm really excited to be starting at Milford Hair Design in this new role, and I will bring in more clients. I am looking forward to being a fresh face around here and introducing a new flow of clients to the salon."
With a strong background in the hair and beauty industry, qualified senior hair stylist and make-up artist, Paula is bringing her talents to Milford to offer clients a full on-trend hair and make-up experience.
I’m all about teamwork and I intend to bring in a lot of fun to the place too! We want to make this a 'destination' for the modern client whilst continuing to wow our existing loyal clients of all ages."
Paula is an experienced, trained make-up artist who specialises in wedding looks and is keen to offer hair and make up packages to brides-to-be, as well as students attending school balls or anyone attending a special function where they want to look their best.
Having trained through Servilles before working in West Auckland and Albany, Paula is well placed to take on this dream role in Milford, close to her Mairangi Bay home. Milford Hair Design owner Dawn Claydon said: “I’m delighted to have found Paula and am confident she is a great fit to take the salon forward with her vision, energy and style.”
