About Us

Our passion is creating the perfect blonde for you!

Located centrally on Northcroft Street in Takapuna, Forever Blonde has become a popular destination where you can relax while we take care of you. We have created our own signature colouring techniques and we’ve also given a lot of thought into what treatments and professional colour to use in order to keep your hair in the best condition it can be while still achieving a beautiful blonde. We specialise in highlights, beautifully blended blondes and colour transformations.

Forever Blonde was founded by Steph Young who has worked at a number of well known salons. After perfecting her craft, Steph set out on her own and then trained a team of stylists who share her vision and passion for colour.

Please see our price list for all your needs or book online for a free consultation. For any further questions, please contact the salon.
