New Zealandʼs most awarded hair stylist, Mana Dave, is soon to launch his newest proposition, Pony Professionnel, in the heart of Newmarket.

Pony Professionnel is an oasis of expert advice, industry authorities and the finest product range, catering to men and women who love healthy hair.

The award-winning team at Blaze Hair, spearheaded by Mana Dave and Kate Smith, are the driving force behind the new Pony Professionnel business. Their success in establishing and growing a niche business from scratch in a crowded hair & beauty market has built a solid foundation for the new concept.

Mana Dave has been awarded ʻNew Zealand Hairdresser of the Yearʼ on three occassions (ʼ08, ʼ10 and ʼ12), and the Blaze salon enjoyed the success of seven other premium industry awards in their short history.

The Pony Professionnel ethos is based on the love of, care for and ongoing improvement of healthy hair.  Aimed at a growing market of both men and women who desire accessible expert advice and a curated  range  of  the  best  hair  products  for  New  Zealand  hair,  Pony  Professionel  will  offer  an unparalleled experience.

The in-store experience at Pony Professionnel will also offer premium Kerastase spa treatments for hair ($87 – $185 for 2hrs).  This spa services use massage techniques designed for specific needs of the hair and scalp.  The service leaves the customer feeling relaxed, indulged and pampered.

Pony Professionnelʼs on-the-go styling services are priced from only $40 – the dry-style and blow-dry services are aimed at offering walk-in customers relaxation and nourishment for their hair amidst busy lifestyles.

Mana Dave always saw the Blaze culture expanding into new beauty offerings:

“After  creating  Blaze  I wanted  to go on and create  the concept  of ʻeverything  for healthy  hairʼ,  a relaxed environment  where every specialist hair product was available, and where my clients could receive the best product advice and pampering without us ever being intrusive. Then add to this the affordable indulgence of hair spa treatments; this was a perfect combination.”

The interior concept for Pony Professionnel has been expertly designed by Katie Lockhart.  Katie was an integral part of the original Blaze Hair planning team and has brought her wealth of global design knowledge to the new store.

Pony  Professionnel  opens  on  Thursday  11th  October  at 290b Broadway,  Newmarket, Auckland.
