Lorraine Burke, Director of Loaf Salon
Lorraine Burke   Director

Originally trained in London. 

Lorraine sees herself as a 'hair doctor' and gets a real buzz out of helping people who are unhappy with their hair leave the salon feeling amazing. Always sensitive to other's needs, she listens for "What my clients aren't saying!" to make sure they get exactly the look they want. Lorraine is incredibly proud of her fabulous team at Loaf, and enjoys helping them reach their own personal hairdressing goals - she'd be the first to say that they're helping her grow as well!

" Loaf is the best salon I have come across! The staff are nice and I now love my colour, courtesy of Lorraine - who gave me two great consultations prior to my first two appointments to ensure we were both on the same page re: my exact desired colour and the health of my hair. I also love the massage lazy-boy type chairs where you get your hair washed, plus the sweet scalp massage during this process! Loaf also..." Sarah - Christchurch
