The Directory

New Zealand’s platform for showcasing and connecting today’s pioneers and innovators in the creative industry. Set up by New Zealand’s leading hair design salon D&M, THE DIRECTORY represents emerging and established talent from a wide spectrum of disciplines. It reflects the modern face of creative industries, and the interdependent and hyper-online nature of today.

D&M believes in spotlighting New Zealand’s world class talent and is proud to pioneer a free platform that promotes collaboration and shared innovation. D&M fully supports the belief that innovation is best done in tandem with one another. THE DIRECTORY is the canvas – you colour it in.



We are proud to have been consistently recognised as the top salon team in the country since we first opened 11 years ago. The combination of our unique cultures, specialty skill sets and creative passions is what defines us. We are famed for our salon collections, as well as our work in magazine editorial and on catwalks around the globe.

At D&M, we believe in supporting our industry and the next generation of talented creatives. The incredible talent we have worked with through the years is a testament to the high calibre of skill and creativity available in New Zealand. THE DIRECTORY is D&M's vision in creating a platform that connects these creatives, fosters networking and collaboration, and showcases them to an international and local audience.
