About Vicki Ogden-O’Fee
Vicki always wanted to be a hairdresser, getting her first professional hairdryer at the age of seven and sitting for hours in her Aunties salon… dreaming of one day becoming a hairdresser and owing a salon of her own.
While at school in Timaru she worked for free after school for two years to gain experience in the hairdressing industry, this paid off and she secured an apprenticeship in ladies hairdressing.
After completing her ladies hairdressing apprenticeship she set up her own business at the age of 18 as “Dial-a-Style” mobile hairdresser, going to people’s homes to do their hair for them. After two years she sold the business, which gave her enough money to get started in her first salon. She set up Headmasters Hair Design in Belfast, Christchurch a few years later the business was expanded and Headmasters was moved to a larger site, and Beauty was added to the salon. Vicki worked on the floor along with a team of eight. In 2001 Vicki sold Headmasters hair and beauty to move on to a new challenge.
Vicki then bought into an existing franchise starting with one salon and opening 5 more stores In the next three years and built this business up to have six stores and 70 staff. This was an exciting and challenging time, one where many friendships and new skills were established. In 2007 she sold out of the franchise and started the V For Hair Group.
