Kelly McKenzie

Award Winning Stylist

Purchasing and opening Pure Hair in 2007 was an amazing opportunity and one that I thoroughly enjoyed creating and evolving since that day.
Having been a part of the Hairdressing industry for over 20 years there have been many amazing experiences. These include being selected as a stylist for fashion weeks, show work and competing in 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 in their 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 clients and community.

Bonnie Stewart


Hairdressing is my passion! I balance my passion for hair with being a mum of two and my growing number of pets. I have been in the hair industry for 14years, during this time I have won multiple awards in both live competitions and editorial work. I am also an Internationally recognised Redken Certified hair colour specialist. I love learning new skills in all aspects of hairdressing and passing on my knowledge to the next generation of stylists. My focus is on my clients looking and feeling there absolute best when they leave our beautiful salon.



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 Network (a mentorship programme to become a national Redken Artist) has been 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
