Mikayla Schlooz

Mikayla brings a contagious smile, down-to-earth attitude and more than 10 years’ experience to the Dime Friday team.

Originally from Auckland, Mikayla completed her training in Wellington before moving to Sydney to live the dream for a couple of years. Like other homesick Kiwis living abroad, she eventually decided to return to New Zealand and (luckily for us!) settled in sunny Mount Maunganui.

“I’VE NEVER BEEN ONE TO SIT IN AN OFFICE ALL DAY – I GET A BUZZ OUT OF BEING ON THE FLOOR, CHATTING WITH PEOPLE AND BEING HANDS-ON THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE CREATIVE PROCESS.”

Mikayla worked for a top local salon for five years before joining Dime Friday in November 2017. She loves the variety of working with men, women and kids, and has a knack for making people feel comfortable and excited when trying something new.

While she’s experienced in all colours (from blonde and brunette to fiery red), Mikayla is the queen of beautiful, low maintenance balayage/ombre work.

Dezarae Jessop

Dezarae brings a striking eye for detail and a wealth of expertise to the Dime Friday team. With more than eight years’ industry experience, Dezarae holds an International Diploma and Trade Certification in hairdressing and she’s also a qualified makeup artist.

“I LOVE WORKING IN A CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT WITH INSPIRING PEOPLE, AND I VALUE THE RELATIONSHIPS I’VE BUILT WITH MY CLIENTS – THERE’S SOMETHING PRETTY SPECIAL ABOUT MAKING OTHERS FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES.”

She sharpened her hair and makeup skills in Tauranga before moving to Auckland to work with local and international brands on photoshoots, shows and Fashion Week before moving home to Mount Maunganui and joining the Dime Friday team.

Dezarae’s not one to sit still (she often spends her weekends making brides look beautiful!) and she’s the type of stylist who’s totally honest with her clients – she gets to know them personally and creates a unique look that works for them, rather than simply following trends.

Dezarae specialises in soft, natural colours as well as styling (from chic hair-ups for special occasions to soft bridal curls).

Sara Kroeze

Sara is an award-winning stylist with more than 14 years’ industry experience, eight of which were spent pushing the boundaries of incredible hair at top Auckland salon Blaze in Newmarket.

“THERE’S NOTHING BETTER THAN SEEING A CLIENT WALK OUT THE DOOR WITH A HUGE SMILE ON THEIR FACE. I LOVE THAT I CAN BOOST THEIR CONFIDENCE AND HELP THEM LOOK AND FEEL A MILLION BUCKS!”

Sara’s created stunning looks for fashion shows and shoots across the country, as well as competed alongside the best of the best in numerous local and international competitions. At home with all aspects of hairdressing, Sara’s repertoire spans creative and classic techniques across cut, colour and styling.
Today she specialises in creative colour work, from high-fashion hues of the moment to subtle tones and creamy pastels. Sara’s known for creating striking looks with shorter cuts for both men and women, and she’s also your go-to guru for bright, beautiful blondes.
From consultation and cut to colour and blow-dry, Sara loves the entire transformation process from start to finish.
