A Bit About Gretchen

Gretchen started her hairdressing journey while still at school, helping out as a salon assistant before starting her formal training at Serial Hair Academy in South Africa. Her extensive career in South Africa led to her reaching her dream of owning her own salon, before making the big move south to New Zealand where she took the lead here at Opulence.


Gretchen loves the creativity of the industry and loves seeing the difference in her clients' hair from when they arrive at the salon to when she has worked her magic. She has a passion and talent for training the next generation of hairdressers, and really enjoys styling for special events, and extensions.
