Sarah Rasmussen

Sarah has owned The Avenue Hair Studio since October 2012 and says she was born to be a hairdresser. She started working part time in a salon while still at school and has been hairdressing ever since. Sarah’s OE was spent on luxury cruise ships, working as a senior hairdresser and assistant spa manager. She went on to join L’Oreal New Zealand, working alongside salon owners, managers and hairdressers. After 20 years in the hairdressing industry Sarah still loves her career and the people. As hairdressers, we are so lucky to be able to compliment people through their hair. Sarah loves the ‘wow moment’ when she’s created the look her client wanted and can easily look after themselves at home.
