Maree Hoare is one clever Mum in Business! Sometimes you get to meet someone with a real love and drive for what they do. Maree is one of these people. She started work experience in a hair salon at age 16, and by 17 was starting on her training. She worked in Palmerston North, eventually owning her own salon for 8 years, which she sold when her child was born. Maree started an online homewares store while staying at home with her infant son before going back to work as a sales rep and trainer for a New Zealand salon supply chain, Dateline Imports.
Maree soon realised how much she missed the hands-on work of being in a salon, and decided to get back into it. As she says, it’s a ‘passion you just can’t get away from’.
Building a salon at her home was an adventure, and she invited me to head over and have a look around. I was super impressed – the decor is tasteful and on-trend and Di Moda Hair Salon offers everything a town salon does, but in a quiet, one on one environment. Maree has a strong interest and talent for colour.
In her time working with Dateline Imports, Maree had the opportunity to investigate a broad range of products, and has carefully researched and selected cruelty-free products for use in her studio, the majority of which are approved by PETA.
Di Moda Hair Salon presents an extensive range of services and makes it easy for you by offering online booking and text reminders – conveniences we would all appreciate in our busy lives!
Maree has done a wonderful job of finding a solution which balances her family life and her career. Her salon is beautiful, and relaxed and offers a comprehensive range of services. Check Maree out on the links below:
