Ebony Somers

Hairdressing Tutor

I love the challenge of teaching, and the reward in seeing students leave us, to step into the real world of a hairdressing career.

 am very passionate about the hairdressing industry, and continue to work in salons to keep current, to ensure that our future hairdressers are prepared for the work force. I believe in mentoring/guiding my students, in a fun effective learning environment to encourage creativity, artistic flare and confidence. 

My passions within hairdressing are hair-up styling and chemical work. I love styling hair for weddings, school balls and any other formal events. 

I have worked in the Whangarei Hairdressing industry for 17years. I managed an inner city salon for 11years, training staff and apprentices, and in 2013 starting teaching Hairdressing at NorthTec.
