‘My hope that being apart of The Buoy Club will make you feel confident, a sense of belonging and will give you the extra edge in the industry we all love so much’.

Hey my name’s Michele.

I am a self employed hairdresser, wife and mother of two beautiful boys based in Christchurch New Zealand and I’m very excited to start this journey with you.

My husband and I opened a salon called Balayagehair in 2011 when I was 23years old with a great support network around us. We had incredible and talented contractors working with us in a ‘rent-a-chair’ setup. After having our second child we decided to sell the salon to good friends and now I contract under them still at Balayagehair.

My vision and my ‘why’ for starting The Buoy Club is to bring together an online community that is kind, open-minded and enthusiastic to grow in their hairdressing journey. So often we don’t want to ask the questions in fear of looking silly or being judged, however it’s these questions being answered that make us better.

I hope that being apart of The Buoy Club will make you feel confident, a sense of belonging and will give you the extra edge in the industry we all love so much. I’m extremely passionate about my job and I’m very happy to share my success and failures, trials and discoveries with you all!
