Graduation Day

Super proud moment today as Oliva walked the stage to collect her graduation scroll. Oliva qualified last year first in her class but today was the industry awards day for a group of hard working committed young people.

Tabatha comes to Auckland

Duike, Tabatha & Debbie

Debbie and Duike took the opportunity to travel to Auckland to experience time with Tabatha Coffey, the star of the popular reality series Tabatha’s Salon Takeover.

As one of Australia’s most successful hairdressing exports Tabatha has certainly carved her mark on the world stage. For the lucky attendees, US! there was plenty of tips and information to be gleaned as she covered many aspects of running a successful salon.

Highlight of the night, up close and personal with Tabatha who describes herself as a BITCH, Brave, Intelligent, Tenacious Creative and Honest!


Richard Kownaki’s NZ Brutality Cutting Tour

Duike, Richard, Debbie and Sandra

In August De Lorenzo took Richard Kownaki with his NZ Brutality Cutting Tour to 8 different locations around New Zealand including Promises Hair Design.

The Look and Learn seminars coupled with the day workshops were fully booked out in most centres.

Being the only salon to be able to host this event we felt very privileged to spend the time with Richard, we learned so much from this inspiring man who has been in the industry for such a long time, and is still so energetic and giving. Richard is a motivational speaker and has written a book, to learn more about this inspiring man go to his website

Having Richard at Promises gave the team new ideas to take to the floor with them the next day.
