Welcome to Studio Chique


Nestled in one of the most unique destinations in the world, Studio Chique reflects the atmosphere of Christchurch: urban, earthy, and inviting. I’m known for using quality products and delivering the latest beauty treatments, but my customers appreciate the level of care they receive. Everyone who walks through my door is welcome – without you, I wouldn’t be here.

My ultimate goal is to provide a great client experience. This starts with a warm, serene space where you can kick back and relax. Coupled with a caring touch, I tailor every treatment to elevate your personal style. Indulge in a little self-care and enjoy the friendly, professional excellence for which I’m known.

Builder in A Bottle



I use Builder In A Bottle by The Gelbottle, Inc., on clients who want to add strength, length, and thickness to their nails. With a smooth formula, it can be applied directly to natural nails for a non-chip overlay, and a polish of your choice can be applied over top. Results last up to three weeks, and as Builder In A Bottle starts to grow out, I can remove and immediately reapply it to continue improving your nail health.

About Me

If I could describe my services in two words, I would use client focused. The most important part of my work is listening to your needs and providing services that make you feel beautiful and confident. I take seriously the trust you place in me for your facial and body treatments; it’s my responsibility to meet your beauty goals and, at the same time, help you leave stress at the door.

At Studio Chique, every client receives personal attention. You’re more than another body in my salon – you’re a person in need of focused care. And that’s exactly what you get when you schedule a service with me.

I am qualified through CIDESCO and iTEC. The former awards diplomas to graduates in the fields of beauty and spa therapy and has set international standards for excellence since 1957. iTEC similarly provides training that aligns with industry excellence.

But it’s not just a commitment to education that distinguishes my services; it’s my desire to help you create the perfect look. Whether you have a big event planned, are going on holiday, or simply want to look your best, the treatments I offer can help.

Award-winning Annique Products

I also sell award-winning Annique products, developed and manufactured in South Africa to ensure purity and quality. These products – which include skincare, body care, fine fragrances, lifestyle, and cosmetics – are formulated with Rooibos, a plant indigenous to South Africa and shown to improve, Allergies, Cholesterol, Diabetes, Heart health, and Stress.

Rooibos is widely known for producing a fragrant tea that contains the antioxidant superoxide dismutase. When extracted and formulated in skin and body care products, Rooibos can help moisturize, remove impurities, and restore the skin’s pH levels without causing irritation. These products are safe for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin, and I’m happy to help you choose a regimen that’s right for your needs.

A History of Beauty

I opened my first salon in South Africa, a continent with diverse landscapes and emerging creatives. Lured by the beauty and history of New Zealand, I opened my Christchurch location in 2017. Since that time, I’ve embraced the relaxed pace of New Zealand and love being in the middle of a bustling city that’s close to wildlife, the Southern Alps, and the famed Canterbury Plains.

I also love my clients, which is why I’ve created the inviting space that embodies Studio Chique. I am grateful to all who have helped me grow and look forward to providing you with continued service in the future.

The Health Benefits of Self-Care

You likely don’t realize it, but spending time with me for a little pampering is good for your health. Meeting work demands, caring for children, and performing household chores can be exhausting for the mind and body.

Symptomatically, you’re likely to experience problems with concentrating and sleeping as well as feeling anxious and overwrought. An appointment with Studio Chique is more than a way to look good; it allows your body and mind to reset as the stress melts away. My gentle, nurturing approach can help you feel more like yourself again and pave the path to a healthier lifestyle.
