Colour & Technical Services

Colour Services

All colour work is expertly applied by our L’Oréal Professionnel-trained colour technicians under the guidance of your chosen Master Stylist or Style Director in our fabulous new colour retreat. All colour services are to be performed in conjunction with a styling service.

Unwind, escape and relax in our beautiful space, designed with your comfort in mind.

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.
