Our approach is relaxed and intuitive; our attitude is down to earth.
We work with an awareness of fashion but do our best to deliver hair that is uncontrived and 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.

The word shibui is Japanese, relating 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.

Our services and prices are listed below.

Please note that shibui also offers the following discounts off hair cut pricing for children, tweens and teens:
» Under tween (1-5 years): 35% discount
» Tween (6-12 years): 25% discount
» Teen (13-19 years): 20% discount



shibui cutters prefer to work with the hair in its natural state, to ensure that both the cutter and client can see the outcome realistically for ease of management beyond the salon chair.

We have our own distinct method of blow drying which suits our simple aesthetic and hair care principals. We describe this as a low fuss shibui finish.

shibui colourists are renowned for using subtle placement to create an impact. Their aim is to appropriate colour to best suit your natural hair, skin and eye tone.

Pricing is based on the length and thickness of your hair (colour product required) and the application time needed to achieve the result. All colour services include a complementary low fuss shibui finish.

shibui hair ‘dressing’ involves the styling of hair into a shape and texture that is not able to be achieved naturally. For the most part dressed hair or a hair do is required for an event or occasion which will often dictate the direction. Whether it be classic blow-drying, casual up styling or youthful braids expect a result that will have a relaxed shibui feeling.

Please note that not all of our cutters do ‘dressed’ hair.

We would like to announce that we have joined Sustainable Salons Australia. This resource recovery program is designed for the salon to achieve zero waste, reduce its carbon footprint, and implement sustainable work practices that benefit the local community.


So what are some of the programs your
visit will be contributing to?

» Your cut off hair will support charitable causes such as oil spill clean up projects, local community gardens and charitable wig making services.

» All the proceeds gained from recycling the salons metals such as foils, colour tubes, cans etc. will be donated to not-for-profit community based organisations that do a killer job helping humanity every day.

» Any left over hair colour will be recycled into new liquids.

» Once our tools (used to style your beautiful mane) reach their end of life they will be broken down and all valuable parts will be repurposed.

What does this mean for you?

Each time you visit our Sustainable Salon your service bill will include a small Green Fee of just $2.00 that will support the salon to keep its commitment to sustainability without compromising the quality service we offer you.

For more information, please visit www.sustainablesalons.com.au or ask us during your next visit.
