Vidal Sassoon London
Brenda's background is over 27 years in the hairdressing world including 4 amazing years working for the prestigious 'Vidal Sassoon' salon group in London where she worked in the Mayfair Barber Shop as a member of their Art Team.
During her time at 'Vidal Sassoon' she was awarded their 'International Barber of the Year' award, she worked on numerous photo shoots for magazine, taught at weekly tutoring sessions, soirees & was involved in numerous Fashion Shows. She had Hairdressing work published in London & UK Fashion & Hair magazines.
On returning to New Zealand she started her own Hair Salon in Parnell, from just a few clients she grew it into a very busy & successful business. After selling the business 8 years later she continued as a 'Freelance Hairdresser'.
'Clients would ask me 'What product could I use on my child's hair?' It soon became apparent there were no healthy Children specific hair products nor was there anything between a hair care product from the supermarket & a high end Salon product. I spent several years researching ingredients & finding the best Commercial Chemist to produce a professional range of Natural Hair care. After many product trials on family & friends we came up with our own range. I didn’t stop there, creating an authentic product is an ongoing art- I continuously improve each product to make it better than the last'
In 2015 I introduced the K.O brand that everyone can use and as a continuation of the Children's range.
'I am very passionate about Kids Own & the new K.O range - our family don't use any other hair product- if its gentle enough for Children it must be great for everyone else! I believe we've created an exciting Healthy hair care range beneficial to parents & most importantly- brilliant for the Hair'
'Kids Own Ltd' formed in 2006 by Brenda Steingrimsson.
