My regular: The award winning team at Servilles in Ponsonby. On the corner of Ponsonby and Jervois road in Three Lamps, you can’t go past this place. Every stylist is friendly, knows their craft and will offer you a warm drink (or a glass of wine if the time is right and you ask kindly). These guys have successfully cut and coloured my hair, saved me recently from a horrific hair nightmare and offer an express style service – show up with washed, dried hair and they’ll make you look a million bucks for a very good price. There are other Servilles salons dotted around Auckland, check out their website for one near you.
For something different: The very best blow wave I have ever had was at Dry & Tea.There are two salons - one conveniently located in the City Works Depot downtown, and the original based in the shopping hub, Newmarket. As the name suggests, they specialize in services for dry hair – think blow wave, catwalk ready and loved up dos – and have a delightful tea menu (the white rose classic with tiny buds is adorable). They can also give your nails a lick of colour, add some falsies to your lashes and extend your head massage. Perfect for the traveler.
