Top Award for Havelock North’s Mia Dolce

Skin centre Mia Dolce, has been awarded the top honour of Distinction by Dermalogica New Zealand, excelling against a list of criteria that recognises education, innovation, product and service, marketing and commitment.

Located in the heart of Havelock North Village, Mia Dolce offers a range of beauty therapy services, including specialised Dermalogica skin treatments, body massage, spa packages, hands and feet, hair removal, tanning and collagen induction therapy.

Mia Dolce owner and professional skin therapist Claire Jarman says: “It’s such an honor to receive this award, the highest level of recognition by Dermalogica! For the previous three years we have received merit, the next level down, so we’re thrilled to be awarded distinction and sit amongst the top six skin centres in New Zealand.

“The award is testament to my incredible team who always go above and beyond. We have made a concerted effort to advance our training in the past year, giving us the tools to help achieve great results for our clients. And of course, none of this would be possible without our amazing clients.

“Seven years ago, I opened the doors with two staff; we now employ six and have a large clientele. We love supporting the community and being recognised as a top New Zealand skin centre.”

Mia Dolce also won the favourite hair and beauty category at the Havelock North Business Awards last year. This year’s awards will be held at Black Barn in September with online voting via www.lovehavelocknorthnz.

For the past five years, Claire and her team have also taught basic skincare to Year 12 students at Woodford House. As part of this programme, Mia Dolce donates a Dermalogica skincare pack and an eyelash tint or brow shape to all the students involved.

“Claire and her team continue to impress us with their dedication to their clients and community. They have worked incredibly hard to upskill, innovate and go above and beyond, which is reflected in this award. We look forward to continuing to work with Mia Dolce to help them access success,” says Natasha Bourke, managing director of Dermalogica New Zealand.
