Cut Hut Whitianga Hairdressers and the Whitianga town centre upgrade

This week TCDC caught up with Sally Fox at the Cut Hut at 39 Albert Street, situated between Westpac Bank and Frankies Sports Bar, as part of their buy local campaign.

Sally has owned and operated her hair salon for seven years and remembers fondly how she came to live in Whitianga.

"We used to holiday in Whitianga on mum and dad's boat. When mum and dad moved to Whitianga full-time, I was working in film and television in Auckland and was on my way to Wellington when I stopped in at Whitianga to see them and never left," says Sally.

Sally enjoys her business house tennis competition so much, she's involved with the Mercury Bay Tennis Club as club secretary. Sally and her fiancé, Aaron Wood also love to get out fishing when they can with their four-year-old son Cooper.

"With a team of three at the salon, two chairs are operating all year round, and we may look to add an additional chair for the summer period," Sally says.

"We've been really lucky while the town centre upgrade has been progressing, we have a good loyal client base, and with access from the service lane still open and clear, it has still been easy enough for our clients to get to us," she says.

"The Contractors themselves have been very professional and friendly and a number of them have popped in for a quick haircut too. It's been great and it's really starting to look good out there on the main street."

As part of the TCDC "buy local" campaign, Sally and the team at the Cut Hut offer great prices and discounts for Gold Card holders.  You can contact Sally and her team on 07 866 2525 or just pop in.
