Hamilton hairdressers to sponsor Commonwealth athlete

It’s an ethical match for Hamilton hairdressers The Engine Room and New Zealand Commonwealth hopeful Camille Buscomb as they join forces in a new sponsorship deal.

“We have been looking for unique ways to give back to the community. Camille’s attitude towards using natural, organic and eco-friendly products matches our philosophy here. She is the perfect advocate for the Engine Room,” says Kaleb Phillippe.

“As an athlete I am very aware of what products I use. The Engine Room are the first hairdressers I have known to use natural and eco-friendly products. Their stance with using eco-friendly products matches my personal ethos,” says Camille.

“At The Engine Room, they really care about you as individual. If you are looking good, you feel good. It gives me a boost when I am competing. I happy to recommend The Engine Room to anyone,” says Camille.
