Sara-Purdy1 Meet The Team
Sara PurdyOwner and Master Colourist
With over 20 years of experience in all aspects of hairdressing, in 2005 Gabby and I decided to bring Purdy & Power to Cranbrook. Over the years we have had to continue to expand the number of chairs and team we have as we have grown, which is a fantastic achievement.
I love all aspects of hairdressing including perming and barbering, but my passion is colour especially since becoming a Master Colourist in 2012. Whether you’re looking for a colour that subtly enhances your natural tones or whether your wanting a vibrant change, I can create that for you.
I also look after a lot of brides and wedding parties, which I enjoy. Also I love the buzz of the excitement for the special occasions and making sure the bride is feeling her absolute best for her big day.
I make sure with each of my clients that I educate them about everything I am doing, so they can feel at ease whilst I work my magic. I take the time in explaining how to style their hair themselves at home because it’s important that you can recreate your look yourself rather than just at the salon, giving you the best advise on which shampoos, conditioners and styling products to use in the comfort of your own home.
I look forward to meeting you.

Alanis-at-Purdy-Power-hairdresser-Cranbrook Meet The Team
AlanisManager, Master Colourist & Extension Specialist
Hairdressing is a family profession and I can’t remember a time I didn’t want to be a hairdresser. Growing up and watching my mum Sara is what inspired me to become a hairdresser.
I have previously worked in Verbier, Switerzland in a five star award winning hair salon over a ten month period, styling all kinds of clientele across the world.
Education has always been one of the most essential factors of hairdressing for me: I love to learn new skills and extend my knowledge, which is why I went on to qualify in Easilocks & Beauty Works Hair Extensions and now invest my time becoming a Wella Master Colour Expert, a qualification that provides the highest achievers in colour work with skills that range from in-depth understanding of colour correction, to insights into the psychological effects created by hair colour choices.
You wear your hair everyday – it’s our main accessory, so I love to know that I have made each of my clients feel good about themselves, that’s what makes my day and that’s why I became a stylist.
Now Balayage specialist.

After being in the industry for over 25 years I still have a equal love for all of the aspects of hairdressing including perming, colouring and styling. I find it a real treat getting to know each of my clients, I love a chat! Not only is it one of the perks of the job but I think the personal insights of people is just as important as what you see, which is how we achieve the best style for you!

LeanneSenior Stylist
I discovered my love for hairdressing at the age of thirteen, when I used to go to the salon to have my own hair done. I was so interested with everything that was going on around me. Over the years of being in the industry I have enjoyed building my knowledge of all aspects of hairdressing, keeping up with the trends and styles to be able to offer the perfect look for my client. With the right colour, cut and style it is incredible how much more confident and happy we can be in ourselves.
I have attended the GHD Styling Programme which has given me the knowledge on which is the best way to style hair for all hair types using GHD’s products. And I am now a Kerastase Ambassador so I can give you the best information on products and the chemistry behind it to benefit what your hair needs.
I focus on attention to detail and great consultations ensuring my client leaves the salon feeling amazing. I enjoy bring energy, youth and enthusiasm to the salon and expressing that into my work.
Now Balayage specialist.

After realising from a young age growing up in Cranbrook that I wanted to become a hair stylist, I knew that Purdy and Power would be the best place for me to begin my career.

After starting at Purdy and Power in May 2018, it’s made me realise how enthusiastic I am about becoming a hairdresser. I work in the salon 4 days a week and attend Saks hair academy once a week until i qualify. I’ve gained the best skills and knowledge from watching other hair stylists in the salon and picking up different techniques. I am very bubbly, love to chat and I like to ensure all our clients feel welcome and relaxed.
Photo-to-follow Meet The Team
After studying Hair & Beauty in Secondary School, I then realised my passion for the industry. I decided that I wanted to start an apprenticeship, so I could interact with clients, and learn along side other stylists at the same time as attending college once a week. I love being amongst other stylists watching the changings they make to peoples appearances, i cant wait to being able to do my own creations. I’m not only here to give you a relaxing hair wash and head massage you’ve been longing for all day, but to also make your trip to the salon more warm and welcome. I look forward to meeting you.
