Meet the talented team at Cleaver & Rouge

New Plymouth’s Best Team of Hairdressers & Makeup Artists

We are Kim Cleaver and Jacqueline McFadyen, directors of Cleaver and Rouge Hair and Makeup salon. With a friendship spanning close to 20 years, and a love for hairdressing and makeup, it was only a matter of time that we combine and offer a boutique hair and makeup experience in our gorgeous salon on Devon Street, New Plymouth.

We’re both experts in our respective fields with professional careers spanning over 20 years both locally and internationally, but we’re also busy mums who know that life gets hectic! Every day we strive to create a salon experience that we both crave when we get some ‘me’ time, and we’re proud to be able to offer this experience to our clients every day. Not only will you look gorgeous every time you leave our salon, you’ll have also received a luxurious experience guaranteed to make you feel fantastic!

We’re both born and bred in Taranaki, and love the lifestyle the region offers our families and the exceptional people that make up our local community. Running a busy salon means we get to work with talented hair stylists and makeup artists as well as our wonderful clients who all contribute to our vibrant community in New Plymouth.

We’ve assembled a team of New Plymouth’s best professional hair stylists and makeup artists. Our team are knowledgeable, approachable and experts in their respective fields from colourists, cuts, restyling and makeup.

They are simply the best at what they do, and we’re super proud to introduce you to them.


Heather is a ray of sunshine both professionally and personally, and we’re so lucky to have had her as part of our team for over 7 years! Heather – aka our ‘Foil Queen’! – embraces a very technical approach to colour to get every shade, shimmer and reflection perfect, creating gorgeous multi tonal looks.


Bry has been a part of the Cleaver and Rouge family for her entire hairdressing career! We love Bry as she’s unafraid to push the boundaries with creativity, yet with an unstated style.


The newest addition to the Cleaver and Rouge team! Georgia is eager to start her apprenticeship and constantly loves learning new tricks and techniques every day! We can’t wait to see the amazing hairdresser that Georgia will become and look forward to following her journey with us.
