Save Money at Karori Hairdressers
Why are so many clients now leaving the city hairdressers to go to suburban hair salons?
“The only difference between suburban and inner city hair salons in Wellington is the price”, says Tina Fox – Professional Hairstylist at Taboo Hair Salon in Karori.
Tina who has been a hairdresser for 25 years and has previously worked in several inner city hair salons, said that “Because the rents are so high in the Wellington CBD area, the city salons have no choice but to pass on the extra cost to their clients”.
“The reality is that clients are losing money by paying as much as 35% more to the landlords for the privilege of having city hairdressers cut and style their hair, not to mention the additional parking costs too”.
Clients could potentially save hundreds of dollars a year simply by driving
as little as 5-10 minutes out of town to a karori hairdresser of equal skills, qualifications and experience. For exactly the same quality (or better) result.
Or for the cost of a Junior entry-level hairdresser in town doing your hair, you'd likely get a well experienced Senior-level hairstyist in the suburbs
(such as myself) for practically the same price. It's just better value for money.
Balayage Highlighting Makeover
Our Hair Colourist used a highlighting technique called Balayage for this hair colour model makeover [as pictured]. Balayage produces a great sun-kissed, free-flowing highlighting effect that has become very popular in Europe and America. Several Hollywood celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore,
have all recently chosen Balayage hair colour styles for their new glamorous looks. Now you can too - as this service is available at our Wellington salon.
