After many years of working in salons and as hairdressing educators all over the world and Australia, owners Dea and Vicki crossed paths when they were both teaching hairdressing at TAFE. They soon realised that they had a similar sense of humour and ideas about life and instantly became friends.
In 2018, Over a few glasses (bottles) of wine, lots of laughs and sharing their dreams, it soon became clear they both had a vision of building a fun, environmentally conscious, unpretentious salon where everyone was and could be themselves. They found the perfect little space tucked in amongst the boutiques, bars and cafes in Ebenezer place.. Straight away they knew this was the place and Orenda hair was born.
We are committed to sustainable growth that encourages social responsibility and respect for the planet by reducing, reusing or recycling as much salon waste as possible.
As members of sustainable salon
95% of the salon waste including chemicals, hair, metals plastics & paper is diverted from landfill, and instead, it’s collected and sent to be recycled or up-cycled to new products.
all proceeds are donated to Oz harvest
Donated hair creates wigs for those suffering from cancer or alopecia.
OH...Each visit Your small $2 fee helps supports our ongoing commitment to reducing our environmental footprint, reducing waste and supporting charitable causes
Because both Dea and Vicki have allergies and severe reactions to traditional colour ranges and products. Orenda hair chooses to use and recommend brands that use clean technologies, contain no toxic chemicals, are cruelty free and utilise recycled and biodegradable packaging.
We use the the cleanest and greenest products from our hair colour to the haircare we sell and even the cleaning products we use because the health of our team, our clients, their hair and the environment is as important as the services provided.
OH...You can purchase your hair care products online and pick them form the salon or have them delivered to your door
Most salons have services that are for male or female and their price structure is based on these genders. Why should you pay more or less for the same service because of the gender you identify as. We believe that this is both discriminatory, and can be intimidating for people that are non-binary or gender fluid. Orenda hair is an inclusive space for everyone one to feel comfortable and enjoy a great salon experience and be able to have the hair that expresses their style.
Our prices are based on hair length, time of service and amount of product not gender. This is a fairer and more inclusive way of doing things and respects each individual’s gender-identity
