I was living in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my Kiwi Friends when I first heard about Wellington, New Zealand. So I came to Wellington in the summer 2007 for a visit, I knew right away this was the place I wanted to be. I went back to Toronto, Canada and saved my money and came back in the summer of 2011 permanently...Since I have never looked back. New Zealand is my home now and it has been a very exciting journey over the past few years. For me this is my new country and I am exited about all the opportunities that New Zealand has in store for me. My career as a hairdresser began as a 5 year old, sweeping my Grandmothers salon in Reseda, California during my summer holidays, I began doing hair for my friends at 15 years old. Later I went on to Hair School in both Toronto and Halifax in Canada with Schwarzkopf and Aveda Academies. The hair industry does have a very high dropout rate and very few lifers, Like my Grandmother, I am a lifer because it is in my blood, I love what I do because I love going to work everyday. I have always said 'the worst day in the salon is better then the best day in some office somewhere" BlowUp is my third shop. I had a hair studio in Toronto for 5 years called the Tin Box on Queen Street West that catered to a very awesome funky urban clientelle base. We opened Matthew Kane Hairdresser in the Grand Arcade in Wellington for a year, and when a great opportunity came up we relocated onto Boulcott Street into a larger shop and rebranded as BlowUp Hairdressing where we are now today. It has been an amazing journey and I am greatful that the journey continues after over 20 years of doing hair...
