When you find the right hairdresser, you’ll never go through a salon break-up!
Sueño Hair might be your forever person. With earthy tones and high- end finishings, the European-inspired salon decor is super cool yet refreshly non-pretentious — in fact, it’s quite the opposite.
“People always feel a sense of warmth and calm when they step inside our salon for the first time. I think it’s a mix of our natural colour scheme and also the fact that we all get along so well — there are genuine good vibes here,” says co-owner Lia. And she’s right, everyone is made to feel like Aphrodite!
Husband and wife owners Lia and Jim Kefalianos have been in the hair biz for twelve years; and like perfect mentors, they’ve passed their skills onto their staff. “We have nine hairdressers and three apprentices, who are all excellent hairdressers, and they fully embrace our unique ethos,” says Jim.
Whether you’re coming in for a cut, colour or blow-dry, you can expect the most luscious locks and the ultimate pampering session where you’ll find yourself questioning, “Am I in a day spa or a hair salon?”
Herbal tea or almond latte? They’re tough decisions as you’re elevated to a place of pure zen — there’s meditation music in the background and your massage chair is switched on, then eye masks are offered to sweeten the experience.
Sueño is fully committed to reducing waste and only uses green haircare. “We’re a sustainable salon that’s proudly eco-friendly and chemical-free! All the brands we use are low tox, PPD free, with low ammonia and no sulphate — even our tea bags are sustainable!” And the salon is almost neutral when it comes to their power bill (which is insane for such a busy space), thanks to the concrete floors, industrial glass windows and 30-kilowatt solar panels.

I was super impressed by their recycling method, too. Ninety-eight percent of their wastage is fully recycled — even the snipped-off hair becomes hair booms, which are used to soak up crude oil out at sea. “Most people don’t know that hair is an environmentally-friendly resource that can absorb around five times its weight in oil,” says Jim.
So, if you’re passionate about the planet, why compromise when it comes to visiting your hairdresser? It’s important to know what you’re putting on your scalp, and at Sueño, you know it’s ALL good.
And that’s all the boxes ticked for our new love interest!
