Meet Our Team
Meet Lisa, the proud owner of Gloss Beauty Salon. With many years of experience in the beauty industry, Lisa still loves the positive contributions she makes to the lives of those who enter the sanctuary of Matamata’s leading beauty salon. Lisa concentrates specifically on facials and massages, loving the ability to make a real difference to the way people look and feel through their treatments, empowering confidence in her clients, which is reflected in a beautiful glow.
With skin health being so directly aligned with internal health, Lisa thrives on holistic beauty practice, choosing products for her salon which facilitate and support this principle.
Lisa’s favourite products:
Environ’s Youth Essential Vita Peptide Intensive Serum – anything packed full of concentrated vitamins, antioxidants & peptides to future proof my skin against ageing.
Cosmedics Pure Age Defiance Serum – This is topical Botox in a bottle!
Go-to gift: I love the Bestow Teas, a great way of Introducing people to the “Time for me”, “time for tea” ritual.
What Lisa takes on holiday: I take away all my products with me, wherever I go as I can’t live without them. This can sometimes be a disadvantage as it almost takes up half my suitcase.
Laurie has been in the industry for over 11 years, many of those with our team here at Gloss. She has always been passionate about skin care and enjoys helping people get the right skin care to treat specific concerns. With a particular love for Environ skin care because of the results the range offers, Laurie enjoys the changes she sees in her client’s skins when using it. She has an in-depth understanding about how skin changes due to the environment, ageing, stress, illness, pregnancy and many other factors, which allows her to be very specific in her treatments.
Laurie’s favourite products:
Immortal Cream – the name says it all, right?
Bestow Beauty Oil – good skin starts from within, and this product enables a strong healthy skin and body. If you aren’t taking this, you’re missing out.
Go-to gift: Candles. I love, love a beautiful candle. They’re affordable without being super indulgent.
What Laurie takes on holiday: I like to travel light, so I take Environ C-Quence Toner, and Youth Activating Balm, with Tinted Mineral Pro moisture protection.
Meet Joanne, another one of our skilled skin therapists.
Jo has been in the beauty industry since completing her diploma in 2000 and has experience in both New Zealand and overseas and we are delighted she has returned to our team! And yes, Jo does notice the difference in beauty goals and even skins in our sunny country! For Jo, helping people achieve their skin goals and assisting their skin health journey is her passion, and she believes that close attention to internal factors such as gut health and lifestyle, is intrinsically linked.
Jo’s favourite products:
O Cosmedics Age Defiance Serum is right up there, it has the most amazing peptides in it to tighten and brighten my skin. But I would have to say, my O Cosmedics Home Roller to make sure my serums penetrate ALL the time.
Go-to gift: Usually a piece of jewellery I choose to carefully complement the person’s style.
What Jo takes on holiday: I take everything on holiday! First in my bag is my Environ SPF and my Jane Iredale mineral foundation.
Have you met Yoli? She is originally from South Africa, but has lived here for 12 years now, and recently completed a Diploma in Beauty Therapy at the Elite School of Beauty, and a CIBTAC qualification in Beauty Therapy. As beauty is a constantly progressing industry, Yoli loves the idea that she will always be learning, researching and adding to her skills, and therefore the skin health of our beautiful clients. For her, a healthy nourishing diet, good skin care products and sunscreen are priority.
Yoli’s favourite products:
Bestow Gut Love+. An unhappy gut means an unhappy skin and body. And of course, sun care! Environ RAD Sun Care is the one for me.
Go-to gift: Gloss Gift Vouchers of course. Everybody loves a gift they can use to pamper themselves in the way they choose. Or, Pure Fiji Body Oil, Lotions and Scrubs – a selection of beautiful fragrances and sizes to suit every taste.
What Yoli takes on holiday: Janesce starter kit. Perfect travel size cleanser, mist and moisturizer, a soaking cloth and drops to rehydrate and moisturize skin on long flights. And of course Environ RAD Sun Care.
