Mobeen - Director

Even after 19 years in the industry and arguably being one of Auckland’s supreme hairdressers, Mobeen still treats his salon and his skills as a quest for perfection, benefitting staff and clients alike. He keeps himself fresh and his talents sharp by challenging long-standing colouring and cutting techniques. He’d rather devise a way to push boundaries than do something the way it’s always been done. It’s this dedication to being a master craftsman, along with his belief that every client should be treated as an A-Lister, that’s seen Mobeen continuously in high demand.

This kind of enthusiasm and dedication naturally spills over to his staff.  He hand-picks only those stylists whose work he admires, who share his thirst for continual improvement – and they’re often people with whom he’s had a long working relationship. Mobeen leads them through numerous training sessions each year and gets a special kick out of watching them taking their skills to the next level.
