No doubt, three decades under one ownership indicates an obvious ability to evolve.
Husband & wife, Rob Hastie and Tracey Colebrook grew shibui on a simple footprint of ‘low fuss’ hair. Their dry/freehand cutting, natural approach and a preference for using their hands over the brush became the essence of the brand.
However today, shibui is about the current crop of staff taking the salon into the future and making their own unique differences. They are an eclectic mix of people whose work is as diverse as their personalities.
Our approach is relaxed and intuitive;
our attitude is down to earth.
We work with an awareness of fashion but endeavour to deliver hair that is not contrived and is easy to maintain.
shibui is all about understanding and appreciating the true characteristics of your hair. We embrace the imperfections and variables that make us all unique.
shibui colour specialists appropriate colour to your natural colouring, skin tone and eye color. They prefer to colour after the cut, reading the texture and shape to enhance and excite.
shibui is a Japanese word referring to an aesthetic of simple, subtle and unobtrusive beauty.
shibui is craftsmanship that is beautiful by being understated and what it is meant to be, without needing elaboration.
shibui is direct and simple without being flashy.
