“Simon and I met while working and travelling onboard cruise-ships and luxury yachts just before the millenium, and we first arrived in Nelson during a South Island campervan trip. We loved the place so much that we kept coming back and eventually decided this was where we wanted to live”.
It wasn’t long before the opportunity presented itself to buy Renaissance Organic Hair Salon, and we jumped at the chance! I was already tired of working with products containing chemicals, such as ammonia, so an organic salon really appealed to me. I have since discovered that many of our clients are very like-minded and I’m always picking up new tips and suggestions for healthier living.
The main benefits of the Organic Colour System are that they are produced using as many natural products as possible, so they are free from ammonia, resorcinol and parabens. This leads to less scalp irritation, a clean fresh environment for both the client and the hairdresser, and perhaps more importantly, healthier hair.
The salon itself is situated in a beautiful old building on the second floor, with plenty of sunlight and space to relax. We have two cutting rooms and a processing area which is both private and comfortable. We invite you to come in and enjoy a free consultation, where we can discuss your choice of style and colour, and determine the condition of your hair with our special wet stretch test. And while you’re here you may be tempted to try some of our organic beverages, or even just have a lovely long scalp massage!”
