‘Wow Mum, you look beautiful!’
‘If you need spoiling and are looking for a real treat then DNA is the place to go. I am a busy working mum who isn’t the best at making time to look glam in the morning. I went to DNA recently and I only wish we had a before and after picture because I came out looking stunning. Ali has such incredible vision with her styling. I had my hair cut short and coloured and it looks amazing and is so easy to maintain and style. Then I spoiled myself with a makeover – or should I say Caron spoiled me. She took such time and care to show me how to do my makeup myself which is an area I lack confidence in. We tried different colours and looks and she showed me different ways to highlight my cheeks and eyes. I went out of DNA a new woman. When I went to pick my son up from soccer training he said ‘Wow Mum, you look beautiful!’ The other parents kept complementing me and saying how stunning I looked – I felt so special. The best thing is that I have kept up with the hair and makeup and feel so much more confident. Thanks Ali, Caron and all the DNA team!’
‘I couldn’t recommend anyone else for hair and makeup thank you to you all at DNA!’
‘What a wonderful experience, I can’t thank you enough for making our day so relaxing and stress free. It was the best morning getting pampered with my girls, mum, step-mum and mother in law. You went over and beyond to make sure everyone looked absolutely gorgeous, and the fact that we could get our hair and makeup done at home was even better!! Kim and Ali were outstanding with our hair, my 3 bridesmaids, 3 mothers and myself looked incredible!! Exactly what I was looking for.
I had my makeup trial with Caron before our engagement shoot so I could see what my makeup would look like in the photos. I’m not one to wear too much makeup, I was so impressed with how natural I looked and how long it lasted. It looked amazing in all the photos, my eyelashes looked huge!! Little did a lot, so thank you very much Caron!!
I couldn’t recommend anyone else for hair and makeup thank you to you all at DNA!’
‘I couldn’t have asked for better’
‘I didn’t think twice about booking my wedding hair at DNA because they are known as the best in town. Kim was my hair stylist and she was amazing! When i went for my trial I was amazed a what she could do with my hair.
On the day it was great knowing we were all in professional hands. All the girls and my mum’s hair was perfect and Kim worked her magic on mine. I couldn’t imagine it turning out any better. it got to 12 o’clock that night and it still looked like Kim had just done it, same with the girls.
I just want to say a big thank you to Kim and all the girls at DNA for making one of the most important parts of the day a breeze and beyond expectation. I couldn’t recommend anyone else.’
‘I looked beautiful and just like myself’
‘I approached DNA and Caron Shanks for my hair and make-up for our February 2015 wedding on recommendations from friends. Their excitement and enthusiasm right from the start was just great and I was relaxed that it was one thing I didn’t have to worry about before the big day!
Initially I had my make-up trial with Caron the day of another family wedding, not being a big make-up person myself I was so happy with how natural it looked and lasted! My hair trial was so great and relaxed- as I knew it would be with Kim! Not being the most decisive bride I had no real idea on how to have my hair, showing Kim a photo of my dress she created something that was more beautiful than I could ever imagine. I was honoured to hear from James on the day he was really happy that ‘I looked beautiful and just like myself’ which is exactly what I wanted.
My mum, mother-in-law and grandmother came to the salon with me and my two bridesmaids on our wedding morning, the atmosphere from all the team was relaxed and full of laughter. We all felt beautiful and pampered by Caron and the whole DNA team and it was a perfect start to the day.
I couldn’t recommend the team at DNA and Caron more highly for both wedding hair and make-up or, their experience and skills are second to none!’
‘Stress free morning’
‘Ali and the girls at DNA were absolutely fabulous to deal with on the day of our wedding. From the moment you walked in the door you felt at ease knowing we were all going to leave looking amazing. It was so nice getting pampered with my bridesmaids, mum and mother in law and was a perfect way to start the day. The girls came up with some great ideas and their attention to detail was outstanding. Getting our hair and makeup done at the one place made the morning so relaxing and stress free. I would highly recommend Ali and her talented team and Caron Shanks who are guaranteed to make you look and free beautiful on your wedding day.’
‘Relaxed and Festive Atmosphere’
‘Thank you so much to Kylee and the team at DNA for ensuring that the bridal party and the mother of the bride looked their very best on my “big day”! We arrived with a range of hair types – from long and straight to short and curly – and Kylee and the team styled each of us superbly. There was a relaxed and festive atmosphere in the salon, with a real focus on ensuring that we all felt special. We couldn’t have had a better experience!’
I felt so gorgeous…
‘A huge thank you to all you girls at DNA for making our wedding party look so beautiful on my wedding day. As always your service was professional and faultless. Without your advice and expertise there is no way I would have felt as gorgeous as I did on my big day. The extra mile that you all took to make us feel special and relaxed was truly appreciated. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!’

My hair, AMAZING!
‘I would highly recommend DNA Hairdressing of Ashburton for your wedding. When I approached DNA, and went through with them what sort of thing I was after they were extremely helpful.Their processional attitude reflects the professional and fantastic hair they did for our special day.
The 4 bridesmaids’ hair was amazing and exactly what I was after. My hair, AMAZING, I loved every little detail. My hair was still perfect and in place by the end of the night as were the bridesmaids’. I felt totally relaxed and at ease, the platter was amazing and the girls at DNA are so friendly, warm and make you feel a million dollars when you walk out.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend DNA for your wedding!

Wonderful, relaxing and a very special day
‘As the Mother of the Groom, the girls at DNA went out of their was to make the day as special for me as it was for the bride. From the initial appointment where different styles were suggested, to compliment my outfit to a trial ‘hair-up’ where they even took a photo so that we could all remember the placement of the all important ‘fascinator’, to the wedding day itself, I was made to feel like it was almost my wedding day as well.
The personal attention did not stop with the day as I was told to bring in photos so that they could see what they had created all put together with my outfit and of course photos of the wedding party as well. DNA’s attention to the smallest details and the personal attention they gave me made for a wonderful, relaxing and very special happy day.
WEDDING MAKEUP TESTIMONIALS
‘I have used Caron’s service for makeup several times for a variety of special occasions (those times when you really want to look at your best.) I have always been thrilled with the results, a different look each time depending on the nature of the occasion and always complimenting the outfit colour and style.’
