Meet the team

  • Loren Westhead, Co-owner/Senior Stylist
    I have had 20 years in the hairdressing industry and co-own Clip Joint with Melissa.

    I have a strong passion for the environment and am always looking for new ways to lessen the salon and beauty room’s footprint. I enjoy learning new techniques and trends within the industry and like to keep current so I can create the best look for my clients.
  • Melissa Coward, Co-owner/Senior Stylist
    I grew up in Dunedin. Before finishing school, I worked at Clip Joint, which lead to an apprenticeship and I have now worked in the industry for 20 years. In 2010 Loren and I went in to partnership and have continued as Clip Joint hairdressing ever since.

    I enjoy the challenges and experiences it can give, and seeing my clients look and feel happy when they leave.
  • Theresa Kerr, Senior Stylist and beauty therapist
    I have been working in the hairdressing industry since I was 17. I completed my trade here in Dunedin in 2002 with Headquarters Hairdressing. I went on to have three beautiful boys while still working in the salon part time. I love it now as much as I did the first time I stood behind my chair. I love my job because I get to make my clients feel and look fantastic.

    I spend my free time using my creative skills in baking cakes and doing plenty of crafty things and hanging with my amazing boys. Look forward to seeing you in the salon.
  • Bonnie Woods, Stylist and beauty therapist
    I am a Dunedin local, now in my fifth year of hairdressing with a strong passion for the industry. I have previous qualifications in beauty therapy and make up artistry, which have broadened my skill base and helped me develop my flair for fashion coordination. I find it incredibly rewarding to connect with clients and help them personalise their style.
  • Emma Mcgregor, Senior Stylist
    Hey I'm Emma, born and bred in Dunedin and qualified in hairdressing 5 years ago. I enjoy the social and creative aspects of hairdressing and working together with my client to achieve a great result. I love the outdoors, plants, crystals, animals and spending time with my family. I look forward to meeting you.
