Purchasing and opening Pure Hair in 2007 with Leanne Kommeren, was an amazing opportunity and one that I have thoroughly enjoyed creating and evolving since that day.
Having been a part of the hairdressing industry for almost 30 years, there have been many amazing experiences! These include being selected as a stylist for NZ fashion week, show work and competing in live and photographic competitions. Some of my accolades for this include winning the crown of Hawke’s Bay Editorial Stylist of the Year – 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Since the beginning I've had many talented stylists work with me. Some of whom now own salons which is truly humbling. I will continue to develop the staff and myself as we strive to become the best team of stylists possible! Education is paramount at Pure Hair as we are determined to always offer the latest hair trends to our guests and community.

Leanne Kommeren

Director and Senior Stylist

Purchasing my first business (Head High hair salon) at 19 years of age was life changing!
Little did I know at the time that I would go on to change lives daily through the work I was so passionate about.
In my 40 years in this incredible industry, I have trained and up-skilled several talented award winning stylists, supporting and encouraging them to become the best version of themselves!
I have attended several World Hair Expo’s and Symposiums, learning from some of the best in our industry globally.
In recent years I incorporated into my business, “Healthy Living From The Inside Out”.
Working closely with guests adding Skincare and Nutrition alongside Hair, while also encouraging and supporting them to be the best version of themselves through pure, safe, beneficial, vegan products!
My passion is to Empower People creating an exceptional life for them and their families.

My hairdressing career began at age 16 and over 16 years later I’m still super passionate about our industry.
Earning one of 4 spots on the Redken Power Pro Network (a mentorship programme to become a national Redken Artist) was a massive career highlight and also becoming an internationally recognised Redken Certified Hair Colour Specialist.
I love educating, thinking outside the square and shaping the future of our industry.
A dreadlock specialist for over 10 years and creator of Dread Cult in 2015, some recent and past clients include Ma’a Nonu, Rodney So’oialo, Kupu Vanisi and Karl Tenana to name a few.
I have a strong passion for alternative colouring & cutting and blonde work.
Winning the Wella Trend Vision Peoples Choice award in 2012, and being a finalist in the NZ Industry Awards in 2018 for Hawke’s Bay Editorial Stylist

I feel that by listening to every clients wants, needs and desires, I’m driven to be the best I can be. I want every client to leave feeling absolutely fabulous!
As well as my existing clients, I look forward to meeting new and exciting clients, and helping them to achieve the style or colour that enhances not only their physical appearance but also their daily routine and lifestyle.
