A long-time Queenstown hairdresser’s reached her dream of owning her own salon.

Wioleta Nowak-Doyle, above left, who’s pictured with staff member Sophie Rothmaier, has bought out her Hair On Camp Street partner Scott Ferguson, and renamed the business Queenstown Hair.

Having first cut hair in Queenstown almost 12 years ago, after qualifying in her native Poland, Nowak-Doyle managed Ferguson’s three local ‘Hair On’ salons before partnering him in Camp St 18 months ago.

‘‘My philosophy is to make sure the person who comes here leaves happy,’’ she says.
