Newton Cook GHD

Rodney Wayne opened his first Auckland salon in the heart of the city in 1980.

The luxurious salon immediately captured the attention of Aucklanders seeking world-class style. Within eight years, Rodney was operating eight hair salons. He knew that a quality consultation was vital to understanding and achieving client needs and wishes. ‘We listen. We care’ became a guiding principle. Great service and even better hair were hallmarks. Now there are over 30 salons in the Rodney Wayne stable and 15 Shampoo ‘n’ Things haircare stores across the country.

Newton Cook

As Creative and Education Director for Rodney Wayne, Newton is passionate about uniquely beautiful hair and personal development. “I come from a large supportive family so bringing that culture to my work life is something that I strongly believe helps steer successful results. One of our values at Rodney Wayne which resonates strongly with me and our teams is that everyone deserves the right to look and feel fabulous. Looking great is amazing, but it’s the feeling fabulous that gives you that extra glow of confidence. I draw my inspiration from music and dance – I believe fashion coincides with all the arts.”

Newton’s session styling work features in some of New Zealand’s leading beauty and lifestyle publications.

The Rodney Wayne Artistic Team are experts in their craft.

They receive high-level training and are selected through a rigorous audition process.
