Our Team

We have a great team of senior stylists, all which were fully trained at Valentino’s. We pride ourselves in the fact that most of our trainees have stayed on with us and have helped form a consistent, friendly environment within the salon.

ADEM | Director-Senior Stylist

I’m the team leader at Valentino’s Hair Design and I lead by example.

I am humorous and love interacting with people. My wife Cilla and I own and operate Valentino’s. I have been in the industry for almost forty years and I’m still as passionate about hairdressing as when I started at sixteen years old.

My motto has always been – take the time and do it right.

This has stood me in good stead and would like to think that’s why my clients and my staff have all been extremely loyal to me.

I specialize in cutting and I love to see people happy and comfortable about themselves when they leave the salon.

Glen, senior hair stylist

GLEN | Senior Stylist

I have been in the industry for almost thirty years.

I originally trained at Valentino’s Hair Design at the age of nineteen.  After completing my training I decided to spread my wings and widen my experiences for a few years and worked elsewhere. Now that i have returned, I love working back at Valentino’s, with Adem and the team.

I specialise in cutting, styling and colouring  and enjoy learning the latest techniques.   I am always enthusiastic and excited creating beautiful bridal hair-ups.

Very Senior Hair Stylist MichelleMICHELLE | Very Senior Stylist

Since starting a hairdressing apprenticeship when I was 16, I have been obssessed with the hairdressing industry. I have now been hairdressing for 34 years and love it much as the day I started. I have owned my own salon in England in which time I achieved my teaching and assessing qualifications. I have worked in a Wella only salon in Scotland for 17 years and have continuous training at the Wella Academy in Manchester UK.

My strengths are in colour, particularly colour correction and lightening/blonding techniques including Balyage and foiling.

Im also fully trained at doing Nano Hair Extensions

Senior Hair Stylist GraceGRACE | Senior Stylist

I am very creative and have a special flare as a hairdresser.

I am fully confident with all aspects of hairdressing. I love colouring and cutting but my strong interest is in the art of Barbering and I really enjoy working on men’s hair. I am soon to attend a barbering course here in Christchurch where I hope to further my skills.

My signature thing is hair tattooing which we show in our gallery. I also love doing hair ups for special occasions.

I am bilingual in Mandarin and English and encourage all Asian, and of course Kiwi clients, to come and see me.

Emerging Hair Stylist CatherineCATHERINE | Emerging Stylist

I have been fully trained at Valentino’s and I’m now an emerging stylist.

I have pursued my wish to be a hairdresser as long as I can remember. Now I’m loving, fulfilling that dream. I especially enjoy colouring and styling and I am working on building a young clientele like myself.

I also really enjoy doing hair ups and braiding.

Emerging Hair Stylist JessJESS | 2nd Year Trainee Hairdresser

From a young age I have always had a strong interest in the hair and beauty industry.

I enjoy all aspects of colour work and I am currently learning to further advance my skills in it. Previous to me working here at Valentino’s, I did a beauty course and so now I specialize in Eyebrow and Lash tinting brow waxing and shaping which I do here at Valentino’s.

For the future I am really looking forward to building my skill set in any way I can and continue working as a part of this amazing team.

Trainee hairdresser ChrisCHRIS | 1st Year Trainee hairdresser

I am a trainee at Valentino’s.

I have always been interested in hair and I’m looking forward to extending my knowledge in cutting and colouring and creating that special style for my clients.

I have a welcoming smile, which reflects my personality.
