Meet the team

  • Loren Westhead, co-owner/senior stylist
    I have had 18 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
    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.
  • Bekah Letica, senior stylist
    I have been in the hairdressing industry since 2013, and I am very excited to be back in the salon after taking some time off with my son. I have a passion for colouring but my favourite thing about hairdressing is connecting with my clients and seeing their confidence grow with the right colour and style.
