Celebrate summer with a custom blonde tone!

We are hosting a Keune Blonde VIP day this Thursday November 8th, 2018.  Keune has the best blonde tones on the market and they are free from PPD Dyes and ammonia. 

 Keune’s colour technician will be in the salon with us 10-5pm providing complimentary personalized blonde toners for any client having any service.  This mean you can add any tone to your existing or new blonde hair at no charge! Toners can be anything from caramel to lightest ash blonde including fashion colours pink, silver lilac and grey. Toners are semi permanent and will leave the hair gently over 3-6weeks.

If you would like to try a toner on existing blonde but aren’t ready for a haircut or colour service we have an awesome option for you that will leave your hair super shiny and soft, while reducing or eliminating frizz. All you need to do is book a hard water wellness treatment for $30 and we will remove any deposits from your hair, tone your hair, seal the colour with a custom Malibu treatment and do a natural finish blow-dry. Have plans for the weekend? Upgrade to a style using heated tools for an additional $25 and will prep the hair so it lasts right through.

The VIP bookings will only be made in salon or over the phone, so visit us today or call us on 546 5646. Spaces are limited so don’t wait!

Spring is in the air, and we have exciting salon news!

H2O Hair welcomes Senior Stylist Melissa Teeling to our team. She is new to the area and starting to build her clientele. A full bio will be posted soon, but for now I can say she is a top senior stylist with 17yrs experience and an approach to hair that is like my own- Gaila.  She is skilled in all areas and also understands curly hair detailing.  Melissa and I will be working closely together with her performing my colour work wherever feasible.

We are confident that Melissa will impress, so…

If you are not happy with your current style, regardless if you are a new or existing client you can receive 50% off your first cut & style with Melissa until Oct 31, 2018.  Just mention this blog.



Melissa’s hours – Mon 9:30-3:30pm          Thurs 1:30-9pm           Fri 9:30-1:30pm


 Spring/summer 2018 hair fashion is ALL ABOUT BLONDE!

With all the advancements in colour, tools and techniques we can deliver any kind of blonde imaginable. Even if dark hair suits you best,  a few tips,  soft strands, or a bit of sun-kissed tone on tone can add that bit of interest to your existing colour that says bring on Summer!

 At H2O Hair we will get you the result you desire, at a fair price.  You have our guarantee.

The following is feedback from one of our many happy blonde clients (a full testimonials page to be up soon).

As a bleach blonde I struggled for many years to find someone who would not leave my hair with yellow bands or snapped pieces. Gaila at H2o maintained my hair perfectly long and white blonde for 6 years right up until I moved to Australia where it was then made a mess of again. Thankfully I was able to come back on holiday to get it fixed!

I still cannot find anyone with the same attention to detail who uses products that look after your hair and who takes care of your hair while still giving you the results you want. 

Definitely a life saver for healthy blondes! 



Call us on 03 546 5646 or go to our online booking for a complimentary consultation to discuss our fantastic Blonde Specials running until Nov 30th 2018

Add interest to your blonde!

Do you enjoy being blonde but just a bit bored with your current foil look?  Until September 1st 2018 you can turn any regular foil service into a foilage,  ( a foil placement with blonding done in between the foils and a toner after to melt it all together) for only $75 extra.  Combine this with our already great colour prices and you will be looking at under $200 for the full look including bond strengthener  and premium colour products. This is an amazing deal as many salons are charging over $300 for this look! Below are two example of this gorgeous look, one in a soft natural gold and the other in neutral/cool tones with a darker shadow toner at the new growth area which will brighten as the toner fades exposing even more blonde while maintaining a soft look in perfect tone!



Spring specials

If your scalp is dry and reactive and/or your hair is dull, brittle or just not feeling great, book a Malibu* Hard Water or Scalp Therapy treatment before any haircut or blow-dry service  for only $15, and leave with your hair and scalp feeling and looking fantastic! Upgrade for an extra $15 and have it finished with a Miracle Repair Treatment (pure vitamin C), that leaves the hair shiny, smooth and bouncy by restoring the hair’s natural pH level and elasticity.

Fantastic winter specials

If you are currently unhappy with your hair, we may be able to help with one of our fantastic winter specials. Whether it’s unruly texture, a haircut that’s not working for you, or lack of softness and shine – we can help. You can choose from one off the offers below or call us for a complementary consultation. We only recommend what will improve your hair, and we guarantee our work.

  • The pH of the water in our region is 1-2 levels higher than hair and skin’s natural balance. This can puff and ruff up the outer surface of our hairs. This allows hard water deposits present in our local water to stick to our hair and scalp. If your scalp is dry and reactive and/or your hair is dull, brittle, and not feeling great, you likely have a build-up of minerals. Book a Malibu* Hard Water or Scalp Therapy treatment before any haircut or blow-dry service during August and September for only $15, and leave with your hair and scalp feeling and looking fantastic! Upgrade for an extra $10 and have it finished with a Miracle Repair Treatment (pure vitamin C), that leaves the hair shiny, smooth, and bouncy by restoring the hair’s natural pH level and elasticity.
  • Kerasilk Keratin Treatments that tame even the wildest hair, providing smooth, virtually frizz free and humidity protected hair for 5 or more months. Reg cost $175-275 (depending on length and density of hair). Experience this treatment with Rosa for 25% off during the month of August 2017. Note: to ensure the best result we do not allow online bookings for this service. To take advantage of this special book a free consultation with Rosa, or call her for a phone consultation.
  • If you struggle to get a good haircut and your hair just not doing what you like, or if it’s only good for a few weeks after having it cut, we can change this for you! We need models for a Pure Form Problem Solving haircutting class on Sat Aug 24th. The class includes a hairstyle designed specifically for you (including styling tips), a shampoo, a conditioner, and a styling product to take home. All at NO Charge! Limited space, so book now!

Models need to:

  • have at least one specific problem with their present haircut they would like to change.
  • be available Sat Aug 24th from 9-11am
  • be willing to come back for a reassessment of haircut 5-6weeks later
  • book a limited spot by either, calling or booking online a consultation with Gaila. Or email photos with a brief description of problem(s) with your present haircut to: h2ohairsalonnz@gmail.com

Happy Birthday H2O!

April 1st was our 7th birthday and clients enjoyed delicious Ultimate Choc cake all day, thanks to NW bakery. This marks a new cycle for the salon for which we have some good news and some not so good news …

Good news:

  • A big congratulations to Rosa for passing her qualifications exam! She is now a fully qualified stylist and we are happy to say she will be staying on at H2O Hair in this new role. And thank you to our lovely clients who supported her with services and encouragement throughout this process, she couldn’t have succeeded without it. Rosa performs all services, and is particularly fond of up-styling, creative colour and curly hair. She is also great with children, and offers fantastic pricing as she gains experience and builds her clientele.
  • We now have the product (a very special clay lightener) and the expertise to create the beautiful and long lasting Balayage and Ombre colour effects we are seeing everywhere in print and on television.
    • Note: because of the varying technical factors that affect timing and pricing, these services require a complimentary consultation prior to booking.

Not so good news:

  • Due to rising costs in all areas, H2O has slightly raised prices as of April 1st, 2017. A full list of our new prices will be available on our services menu. We really appreciate your patronage and encourage you to speak to us if this presents a problem. Existing clients will receive their first service after the 1st of April at the old price as we roll in the new ones.
