NIKI GIBBISON – Owner / Senior Therapist

I have been in the beauty therapy industry for 9 years. During this time I have had the opportunity to travel and work overseas; whilst this extended my skills as a therapist, there is no place like home. My work experience has reinforced my desire and passion for working in this exciting industry. One thing I have discovered is that I am passionate about supporting and educating my clients to achieve their skin goals. This might be accomplished by just a small word of advice or by designing a full skin journey. This is why I am in the industry and why I love my job. My award-winning team and I look forward to meeting you soon.


NGAIRE WADE – Advanced Aesthetician 

I have lived in the Waikato region for 12 years. I have completed my beauty body and spa treatment training at Elite International, where I also gained my CIBTAC and CIDESCO International Diplomas and won several prestigious awards. After this, I went on to become a beauty therapy tutor for 4 years. Before coming to Mint Beauty Therapy, I also managed a successful Dermalogica counter and treatment salon at Te Awa, The Base. Beauty therapy and skin care are my passion and I am so proud to be a part of Mint Beauty Therapy, working alongside therapists who are equally as passionate. I can’t wait to help you with all of your skin care and beauty needs.


Hayley James – Beauty Therapist

Hi, my name is Hayley, I have always been extremely interested in the beauty industry and have a passion for helping people look and feel their best which lead me to complete my Beauty and Body training as well as CIBTAC International qualifications at Elite International in Hamilton.  Although I am new to the industry I have such a passion for helping people understand their skin's needs and feel their best both inside and outside whether it be through skincare or hair removal. I’ve lived in Te Awamutu all my life so being able to work in a salon close to home is awesome to be able to see so many familiar faces
I love all aspects of the beauty industry but my particular passion is with facials and massage where I get to make you feel like a million dollars walking out of the salon! I look forward to meeting you all soon!
