We believe that your hair is a true reflection of your personality and style, which is why we offer free consultations before we get started. As a trained image consultant, Kristina can show you what styles and colours will suit you, ensuring the style is one that will reflect your inner personality.


We offer everything from quick touch-ups to full makeup tutorials and bridal makeup. Either way, you’re sure to leave the salon looking and feeling your best. We use only the best Smashbox products and will consult with you before commencing the makeover.

Beauty Treatments

Treat yourself to a massage, indulge in facial rejuvenation or simply get your eyebrows groomed and your eyelashes tinted. We have a trained beauty therapist in-salon and a special treatment room where you can escape from daily life in your own private retreat.

Packages & Vouchers

Packages & vouchers are a great gift for others or a nice treat for yourself. Our bridal package will ensure you’re looking picture-perfect on your special day. Check out our gallery for images of some of our fabulous bridal makeovers. We also do bespoke packages/vouchers upon request.
