Brenda’s background is over 27 years in the hairdressing world including four amazing years working for the prestigious ‘Vidal Sassoon’ salon group in London where she worked in their salons & in the Mayfair Barber Shop as a member of their Art Team.
During her time at ‘Vidal Sassoon’ she was awarded runner up in the VS ‘International Barber of the Year’ awards, she worked on numerous photo shoots for magazine, taught at weekly tutoring sessions, soirees & was involved in numerous Fashion Shows. She had Hairdressing work published in London & UK Fashion & Hair magazines.
On returning to New Zealand she started her own Hair Salon in Parnell, from just a few clients she grew it into a very busy & successful business. After selling the business 8 years later she continued as a ‘Freelance Hairdresser’.
Clients would ask ‘What product can I use on my child’s hair?’ It became apparent there were no Children specific hair products nor anything healthy from the supermarket or from high end Salons. Brenda spent several years researching ingredients & partnering with a Commercial Chemist to create a professional range of Natural Hair care. She didn’t stop there, creating an authentic product is an ongoing art- she continuously improves each product to make it better than the last.
In 2016 as a continuation of the Children’s range she introduced the K.O Natural brand that everyone can use. ‘I’m very passionate about the NEW K.O range – our family have used our products since conception & now with the brand of NATURAL products we’ve created an exciting Healthy hair care range – which is brilliant for Hair’.
‘Kids Own Ltd’ formed in 2006 & K.O Healthy Hair care created in 2016.
