Hello, I am Leticia Radcliffe, Owner/Operator of Simpatico Hair Studio.

 

I personally moved out to New Brighton after lockdown was lifted in May 2020. I love living by the beach, mother nature, fresh air and the wonderful community I have met through walking my dog, Lady. The warm welcome we have received, the smiley faces, and people taking the time to care. People who live in New Brighton are very passionate about revitalizing this magical place by the sea, “life is better by the beach”. As we are in a pandemic, I decided to relocate Simpatico Hair Studio to 4/68 Brighton Mall in the Surfside Mall, to encourage my Simpatico Family to have an excuse to come to the beach, visit the shops, buy an ice cream or a coffee, take a walk along the East Coast line, visit the library, and come to the markets on a Saturday. New Brighton will never be like it was in the 80’s, but nothing ever will be. I want to spread some love and positive energy into this wonderful place, where as a child so many great memories were made. I welcome you all to come and meet me, see the salon, and make an appointment for a complimentary consultation to discuss you and your hair.

"Simpatico was created by Leticia started as a mobile hairstyling service.  After 2 years on the road, she had a private hair studio at her home and eventually jumped into a commercial salon in Phillipstown!

In Leticia’s salon, you can always expect a clean, tidy and welcoming environment. You will be greeted and made to feel comfortable. A refreshment menu is available and will always be offered. On those cold wintery days, a complimentary lavender wheat bag will be applied to your shoulders to help soothe those aches and pains. This service is also available in summer, please feel free to ask.

 

Home hair care recommendations will be made for you to be able to have beautiful hair between your visits.

 

Rebooking your next appointment is advised before leaving the salon, as this is more convenient for you as a client to ensure you can have the day and time that suits you best. You can also do your booking online conveniently."

How has Covid-19 changed Simpatico? 

 

I'm ready to be operational, creative and compassionate in this new Covid-19 world! There are a few changes in the salon but my warmth, professionalism and relaxing environment has not changed!

 

I have completed the Barbicide Certification which has given me a clear understanding of proper sanitation and disinfection practices and procedures consistent with the current highest industry standards.

"Been following Leticia around Christchurch for many years now as it happens she has her own salon just around the corner from me. Not only is she a great hairdresser but now consider her a friend."​​

Simpatico was created just before the September earthquake as a mobile hair styling service. After the February earthquake the business really started to grow as clients did not feel comfortable inside malls, and so many salons were destroyed so I decided to bring my services to my clients. Being mobile was an innovative way to still bring the joy and sensational feeling that you experience after having your stylist work their magic, in the safety of their own homes.

 

After 2 years on the road, I created a private hair studio at my home, and this was wonderful and a great opportunity to be a little more stable and offer services of which I could not whilst being mobile. This also gave my clients a safe space to share some of their sadness from the earthquakes, in a private safe environment.

Hi! My name is Jessica Petrini and I am a new stylist at Simpatico Hair Studio.

 

I have studied the art of hairdressing for a year and I am now ready to put my skills on trial. From intricate colours to fresh haircuts, my ambition is to make every client feel their absolute best.

 

I look forward to putting my creative abilities to the test and achieving your hair goals!​
