Hair cuts and colouring at sharp student prices
When your hair needs to be tamed, shamed, peaked, patched, popped, coloured or styled, remember Spectra Hair in Palmerston North on the corner at the Cuba Cafe´ end of George Street in the city. It’s an awesome salon, with skilled hairdressers, a sassy vibe and affordable prices. It’s just what you have been looking for.
First off they offer ‘student budget’ prices; just bring your Student ID, and secondly they use the, ‘Innosense’ range of colouring products because it’s got no-nasties and is created with your health in mind. Spectra likes that!
The Spectra vibe is fun-loving with staff who believe they were ‘born to hairdress’, who exude professionalism and who love living, learning and laughing in their vibrant student city. Put all those together and you have a hair salon worthy of your visit.
Take Bayley - a clever, cutting-edge stylist- who skateboards to work each day and DJs for people on weekends, Amelia, aka ‘Meals,’ who is sweet on great haircuts and styling and Jean the braiding Jedi.
And then there are the seven other clever hairdressers, so it’s not like you will have to wait around long. In fact, you can call in when passing ... and the team will fit you in with a big smile and give you a professional cut to rival any you will get elsewhere.
Gabrielle is the owner of Spectra Hair and she promises that her 44 years of welcoming people and sorting their hairdressing requirements, ensures you get the best experience possible in her salon. Taking care of you and her staff is what she loves to do.
She explains the way she feels about her job like this: ‘‘I leave my home with a spring in my step, lipstick on, hair sorted, my coffee card in my bag and drive to work six days a week to be there for my staff so they can be there for my customers ... I love that saying ‘You Weren’t Born to Just Pay Bills and Die’ so here we are at Spectra, doing what we do best, making people smile, making the most of life and welcoming our 2016 students to our vibrant city.’’
Live music makes for extra fun and entertainment at Spectra on Thursday evenings, so that’s a great time to book. And get this for an opportunity. Do you play an instrument and want to earn extra dosh? Then call in and have a chat with Gabrielle and maybe you can even give her an ‘on the spot’ demo.
Amelia, of Spectra Hair, enjoys creative hairstyling.
