When you've been hairdressing since the tender age of 14, you're bound to be a rare talent. Rachael is both the owner and managing director of Marina Salon, ensuring that everything runs seamlessly on a daily basis. Rachael's career started in the Eastern suburbs while she completed her apprenticeship at Manukau Tech, and by 21 she was already a salon manager. A few years later, she realised her dream of owning a salon out East when she purchased Marina Salon. Committed to providing a superior service for all of her customers, she's continued to excel in the industry. Rachael is constantly up-skilling in business and the art of hairdressing, and has reinvented the salon to create the luxurious premises you see today.
