Our location

True Grit is now located at 87 Manchester Street in our new purpose-built salon.


In fairness to all clients, our policy is to reschedule clients who are more than 15 minutes late. New clients are expected 15 minutes before their appointment. All appointments are confirmed by way of a text message or phone call on the business day before.

Cancellation Policy

We ask for 24 hours notification of changing/cancelling your appointment. If you fail to do this twice and we can’t fill your appointments, we will charge you for 50% of your services*. Also we will require you to pay upfront for any services you maybe wanting, and this payment will be non-transferable/non-refundable. We appreciate your consideration on this matter, and would like you to know that this is all at the discretion of management.
*Please note that in the 6 weeks leading up to Christmas the policy will be altered to reflect the client’s demands.


We accept MasterCard, Visa credit cards and EFTPOS.

Quotes and Consultations

We are very flexible with our consultation appointments and happily do this at no charge.

Skin Sensitivity Testing

As with many everyday substances hair colourants can cause an allergic reaction. It is important that we carry out a skin sensitivity test at least 48 hours prior to your colour application, even if you have used a hair colourant before. We’ll send you a text to arrange this test 48 hours before your appointment. View full details here.
