Not only does Love Hair believe in treating clients’ hair with the most natural products—such as John Master, Bhave and Kevin.Murphy—it is also working on minimising its carbon footprint by recycling through a trusted company, serving only fair trade coffee and wine and utilising locally filtered water instead of bottled water.
Step into the salon and you’ll immediately notice the reclaimed wood used for shelving and the plants that bring this peaceful oasis to life. If you’re looking for a warm and cosy ambience, this is the place to be.

Moksa Slow Beauty
This nail salon is an upscale slow beauty concept store complete with a detox juice bar. Its sustainable approach means no plastic, toxin-free nail polish—guests have a choice of 9 toxins free or 7 toxins free—and a focus on slow beauty versus fast beauty, meaning once you walk into the salon, you can leave your worries at the door and take the next hour or so to reset and recharge while sipping a cool watermelon and mint juice.
The navy and blush tones combined with the warm wood give the salon a Paris meets Bali vibe, which will make you feel right at home.
