Gary has been hair styling for over 43 years! He started Hairbenders of Paia because he wanted to service the North Shore community with precision haircuts and styling. His easy going personality makes getting a haircut a painless and fun experience to look forward to!



Suzy has been styl’n locks for 14 years.  She started working with Gary at Hairbenders of Paia five years ago, and loves working with color and highlights to achieve beautiful natural sunkissed hair.  The complimentary head massage is reason enough to come in, but pair that with a fabulous cut and a blowdry, that you could only hope to duplicate, and you will be leaving the salon feeling on top of the world.  Suzy is an avid world traveler and loves sharing travel stories as well as learning about new places to explore.
