Life is more beautiful when you meet the right hairdresser. The minute you step into Howick’s popular Off The Fringe Organic Hair Studio you just know you have met the right one.

Celebrating their third birthday the studio’s team of four stylists, led by Bridgette Young – with senior stylists Megan Shepherd and Charlotte Harris, and junior stylist Alex Roberts – are a team passionate about hair and how you treat it. They proudly use the unique Organic Colour Systems (OCS) range that is gentle on your tresses, your health, and the environment.

“We are all certified organic colourists. We’ve been through rigorous training and have done practical and theory exams to qualify for this certification,” Bridgette says.

“Every client gets an in-depth analysis of their hair so we can prescribe treatment and prepare their hair for colour using our OCS high performance hair products.

“We want to educate our clients about what goes into products and what’s good for their hair and what’s not.”

The only hair studio in the area offering Organic Colour Systems and its associated personal hair analysis, Off The Fringe has a lot more to celebrate.

Having won first place at the OCS National Colour and Photographic Competition they are off to Melbourne in June for Hair Expo.

“The prize we won has allowed the whole team to enjoy Expo together, which helps keep us current and excited about our craft,” Bridgette says.

The studio has also just launched their new Referral Club.

All you have to do is grab a handful of their new referral cards, write your name on the card and hand them out to your friends and family.

“When your friend comes in to see one of our lovely stylists and hands your card in you will receive 10% off your next cut and finish,” Bridgette says. “This is our way of giving back to our loyal clients.”

Just what your hair needs when the autumn winds blow in.
