Mikki Auld Hair – Woolloongabba, QLD

Let’s be real: getting your hair done at a new salon can be risky business. Will the hairdresser do a good job? Are your expectations going to be met?

Consider that dreadful scenario side-stepped when entering Mikki Auld Hair.

Mikki has transformed what was once more than a century-old stable into a leafy salon dripping with green… literally. There are more than thirty plants strategically chosen to maintain the super cool 70s aesthetic, but they’re not just sitting and looking pretty. Mikki is conscious of the chemicals that are being released from her products when creating her hair-magic, and relies on her plant babies to purify the salon’s air as much as possible. And they’re proving their worth, making the space a prime one to nurture creativity (and admittedly, day-dreaming!).

Acting as the Anti Hair Salon, M.A.H has gone against the grain, providing an experience that is unlike what you typically would receive when getting the good ole’ trim and blowdry.

I really wanted to make M.A.H feel like a hidden little sanctuary, somewhere to escape the daily grind and hustle and bustle of the city,” Mikki said.

Plants promote a sense of wellbeing and serenity and people really do just feel happy and relaxed when they’re in here.

You’ll be able to meet their bamboo palm, rubber trees, cacti as well as hanging Hoya pots and cute mini succulents upon entering the heritage-listed building in south-east Brissie. But be sure to watch out for Mikki’s favourites: the monster Monstera and the “unusually beautiful” rhipsalis plants that have their own character, cascading over the salon’s ceiling beams.

Many of M.A.H’s clients catch the sustainable fever when learning about the practices that Mikki implements to ensure that she is being as low impact as possible in this fast changing world. These insightful conversations make the fever all-infectious and, for Mikki, it’s telling of what small impact her brand is making in this world: “I love that our brand speaks so loudly in that regard.”

So, what are you waiting for? Get that green fix and silky glow in one fabulous hit – chop, chop!
