Danny Pato from D&M Hair Design in Auckland, New Zealand, has been crowned the Hair Expo New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year for the fourth consecutive year – 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019.
“Winning [Hair Expo New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year] even after four times still feels amazing. It keeps pushing me further and further and I keep aiming to come back stronger, and more unique. I love pushing myself and I love the challenge. Winning tonight still feels like the first time,” Danny said.
The ‘Tori’ collection pays a strong homage to Japanese Geishas and Japanese design, and features classic geometric bobs shaggy fringes, undercuts and unique colour treatments, alongside stunning bird illustrations.
