Welcome Lisa Bennet!

H2O Hair proudly welcomes Lisa Bennet to our team. She fits right in with our other great
stylists, and is enjoying our chemical-free environment by the beach. Lisa works full time
including two late evenings and alternating Saturdays. To celebrate we are offering a

Happy holidays from H2O Hair

It’s shaping up to be a fantastic summer here in Tahunanui, and with Christmas approaching we have a range of great packages and stocking stuffers to complement Santa’s gifts. If you’re wondering what to get that special someone, then how about a gift certificate to brighten their day? We offer free consultations, and our talented team will work with you to find the style and products to help you look your best.

Janelle, our upstyle specialist, is a master at blowdry styling. If you would like fabulous hair during the holiday season, book in for any blowdry service ($30–$50) and get a free treatment (valued at $25) tailored to your hair’s needs, or 15% off your service.

Kim, our lovely and valued assistant, will be starting her second year apprenticeship with us in January 2013. If you would like to know more about how to be a model for her (free/discounted haircuts or huge discounts on colour and technical services) please call and speak to her directly. All of Kim’s work is supervised and guaranteed to be great!

We hope you have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Look your best for less with our College Ball specials!

It’s college Ball season in Nelson and we know how important it is to feel your best when you’re out with friends, so we’re offering great deals to help you create a memorable look for that special night.

Janelle is our upstyle specialist, and for the next three months she’s offering $65 upstyles (including a pre-ball consultation), or for $85 you can bring your own makeup and we’ll provide the space, lighting, extra makeup and help applying it if needed – all with complimentary non-alcoholic punch! We’ll also take your photo in our “photo booth” and email you a hi-resolution copy of the picture.

In addition, if you book with two or more friends before July 6 you’ll each receive 10% off – and anyone booked for a Ball upstyle will also receive 10% off all cutting and colouring services to have their hair looking great for the event.

Call or drop by to make an appointment, and let us help make your next Ball an evening to remember!

Happy Birthday H2O Hair!

April marks the second year since Gaila launched H2O Hair in Tahunanui, with the intention of creating beautiful hair in a comfortable, happy, healthy environment … and the response has been fantastic!

People love our experienced friendly stylists, and they appreciate the range of quality colours, styling products, shampoos and conditioners we offer. We pride ourselves on using natural, organic ingredients wherever possible (right down to the drinks we serve!) and crafting gorgeous, easily maintained styles everyone can enjoy.

To celebrate our birthday and thank you for your support, we’re extending our Chi Enviro Smoothing Treatment special for all of April and May (see the previous post in Salon News) or you can receive a free conditioning treatment with any service if you mention this article.

See you soon!

Tired of frizzy, dull, uncontrollable hair?

Introducing Chi Enviro Smoothing Treatment, an exciting new non-toxic condition and shine service which leaves hair lustrous, smooth and virtually frizz-free for up to 3-4 months. For all of March we’re offering this treatment at 25% off, which includes a 355ml bottle of Chi Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner to achieve and maintain optimal results.

What is the regular cost of this service?  It varies with hair length and density, starting at $200 for short hair and up to $450 for long, thick hair. $80 worth of shampoo and conditioner is included in the price. For an exact quote, please book a free consultation.

How much time should I allow for this service?  1½ to 2½ hours depending upon hair length and density.

Will this product straighten out my curls?  No, Chi Enviro is a smoothing treatment only. Some of the curl may be relaxed up to a few weeks, but the hair will retain its natural texture minus 95% of the frizz for up to 3-4 months.

Do I have to treat my hair with special care after the service?  You will need to wait 24 hours before shampooing, and during this time your hair will feel slightly coated and full of product. After the initial shampoo your hair will be smooth and silky. For one week you will need to avoid rubber bands, clips, and anything that can leave marks in the hair.

What are some of the other benefits?  Drying time can be cut by up to 40%. Whether you like to air dry your hair, use a round brush for volume, or use irons for straightening or curling, Chi Enviro makes it easy to achieve great styling results.

How natural is this product?  Unlike some treatments which may contain formaldehyde or other noxious chemicals, Chi Enviro is made of proteins, amino acids, silk and pearl. It is considered non-toxic, with three formulas for different hair types and conditions.
