Michael Wall - Owner since Dec 2014
Michael was trained in the Sassoon method of cutting in Auckland and completed his apprenticeship in 1983. He purchased his first hairdressing business in 1987 in Auckland Central business district after returning from a 4 year working holiday in London and Europe. During his time overseas, he worked in various salons throughout England and Europe. Amongst these was Allan International in London and Saks in Newcastle. Michael found working in England and Europe varied and challenging and it was valuable experience. After selling his Auckland salon and moving to Christchurch, Michael purchased Ali-Barbers in Sumner.
After a period of time out of the industry in sales, Michael returns with the purchase of Vibes and is really looking forward to continuing its growth, as a professional and fun environment.
