Debbie Tiddy – Owner/Senior Stylist

I have been in the hairdressing industry now for 25 years. I trained in Oamaru and Australia. I decided to open my own salon in Oamaru in 2005 when I saw that Oamaru needed a new-look salon that offered excellent customer service and beautiful hair. My main focus for the salon was to have gorgeous surroundings for the clients to come in to and for stylists to look after them and listen to them.

We have succeeded in this and have grown the team over the last few years. Since I opened the salon I have trained and have had 2 stylists complete their apprenticeships and another 4 stylists start their careers here with me and successfully pass to become qualified senior stylists. I feel we need to always be looking for ways to improve the salon and new ideas. I love hairdressing and enjoy owning the salon. It is very rewarding to see new team members grow and become excellent senior stylists – it is like another family!

I am proud that as a salon we were finalists in the 2013 Schwarzkopf awards for retail salon of the year, colour salon of the year and overall salon of the year.

Priscilla Nuttall – Senior Stylist

I joined the creative team of stylists at Fusion in 2011.  I have been in the hairdressing industry for over 8 years which offers clients great experience and knowledge.

For me hairdressing isn’t a job it’s a passion.  I enjoy every aspect of hairdressing, with forever changing fashions and styles I am always learning and being inspired.  Making my clients look and feel just as good is the most rewarding part of my job.

Along with my existing cliental I enjoy meeting and styling with new clients, making everyday different and as exciting as the previous day.

Stacey Jordan – Senior Stylist

Hi I’m Stacey! I love being a hairstylist, I enjoy being able to make my clients look and feel fabulous.

In my 8 years of hairdressing I have worked in New Zealand at Fusion and Australia. When I was in Australia I managed a salon which really challenged me and I learnt a lot. I was also really lucky to win a trip to Hong Kong which is one of my career highlights so far!

I feel it is important to keep expanding my knowledge, I enjoy going to courses and seminars so I can keep up with the forever changing industry and bring back to the salon new ideas and techniques for my clients.

I love everything about hairdressing!

Makaela Tiddy – Senior Stylist

Hi I’m Makaela! I love the interaction with clients and the creativity it will allow me to have. Last year I have completed a make-up course at The Makeup School in Auckland and training in Artistic Nail Design Advanced Program in Christchurch. I love entering competitions as it allows me to push the boundaries in hair and create ideas that I don’t get to do everyday. I am very excited to be starting off in this industry as I get to put hair, makeup and fashion all together.

Anna Rae – Senior StylistHi I’m Anna!

I have been creating beautiful hair for 17 years and still absolutely love what I do!

What I love most about hairdressing is how everyday and every client is different, and that I get to form new styles and colours tailored to the individual. I look forward to meeting you and together creating a style that’s perfect for you!
