Trends for tresses: Earth Organic Hairdressing

When it comes to hairdressing, there’s never a dull moment. No sooner has a new trend hit the style scene, there’s another one to take its place. Metropol caught up with Earth Organic Hairdressing owner Traci Aylmer to tease the latest looks.

“Last year was really about long groomed waves; this year long hair is more natural with less structured waves,” Traci says.

“Now we’re seeing more pixie cuts, mullets and the shag taking centre stage, with long hair now getting shorter; it’s exciting as a hairdresser to see these proper hairstyles that utilise some serious styling skill.”

If you’re looking to change things up with a striking new colour, last year’s strong vivids are being replaced with pastel vivids. “The application, too, has changed,” Traci explains. “While last year saw a lot of rainbow application, this year colour application is more subtle.

“We’re also seeing a lot of colour pops and colour panels – a look anyone can pull off!”

Mirroring this new look, Earth Organic Hairdressing is excited to welcome the Fabuloso range of hair care products.

“It’s the best thing since sliced bread – bespoke colour made just for you! And despite how new and innovative it is, they come at a really affordable price point.”

The team of stylists at the popular vegan hairdresser based alongside Little High Eatery at 181 High Street are all highly experienced and extremely well-travelled, so you know they’re at the top of their hair care game.












The most important thing you wear is your hair: G M Hair Gallery

Communication is key when it comes to hair design. You want a hairstylist who is going to listen to what you want but also recommend what they feel is needed to uplift the look further. The hairstylist is, after all, the professional. Metropol sits down with Mike Hamel, co-owner of GM Hair Gallery with Glynis Hamel, to talk about the latest in the hair world.



Everybody became their own hairstylist over the lockdown period (if they were brave enough to pick up the scissors). For the team at GM Hair Gallery, it was a well-deserved break but now they’re back into the swing of things.

“We’ve had a good few weeks back; people have been screaming out for haircuts. We had some interesting looks but nothing we haven’t been unable to get back to where they were,” Mike says.

There’s an art to listening and providing input when choosing the perfect styling. For Mike and Glynis, and the team at GM, they have refined this ability.

“Everyone has their own secrets, maybe they don’t like their ears or nose. We need to realise those secrets so we can create the best hairstyle, extrapolating as much quality out of them as possible.”

But their award-winning hair services aren’t the only thing on offer. Mike Hair Care (MHC) is an amazing international standard product that does wonders for your locks.

Reap the benefits of 80 percent less breakage, 52 percent stronger hair, 58 percent better condition after sunlight damage and 78 percent prevention of colour fade.

“It works in today’s environment with things such as central heating and cold weather,” Mike explains.

What’s even better is that it’s sustainable! The recyclable tin it’s sold in, paired with the fact that there’s a refill station in Christchurch, make it a winner for our mutual friend Mother Earth.
