Tyler Berland - Senior Stylist
Tyler has over eleven years in the industry. “My hairdressing journey began in my home town of Alexandra.” Tyler was introduced to the industry at the ripe age of 15 years old when she started doing work experience in a salon after school, Saturday’s and in the holidays.
Quickly realising that school wasn’t inspiring her and the world of hairdressing was, Tyler couldn’t wait to turn 16 and leave school to start her apprenticeship. Thriving off the hands on, creative and people skills she was gaining Tyler’s high levels of passion lead her to achieve student of the year within her SIT class and apprentice of the year in the central Otago region, before graduating at the ripe age of 19.
In recent years Tyler took a one year break to enjoy bringing up her beautiful daughter, '“I feel so lucky to have been able to return back to the salon and create a happy balance between parenting and my passion in looking after my clients.” Tyler has love for skill development, self development through education and being around other creatives that inspire her so she can continually offer change and always have fresh ideas to bring to her clients.

Why do you love hairdressing and working at Zaibatsu Hair Art?
I made the move to Dunedin back in 2015, with so much excitement in getting to join the amazing Zaibatsu team and embrace the chance of being mentored by the beautiful and extremely talented Jaimee Smith which led me to becoming a finalist in the National Trend Vision award in Brisbane in 2018. A career highlight and bringing home the Salon Team award left me so proud and fortunate to be apart of such an amazing team and salon.
