New Zealand’s South Island is more than a haven for Lord of The Rings buffs but is a land rich in exquisite salon design. Innovation is an understatement – this salon is pure kiwi genius.
Servilles where warm yellows blend with cool blue tones
Servilles has been leading New Zealand salons astray – not off course however, but into a new era of hairdressing and salon architecture. Inspired by the concept of comfort, extravagance and wellbeing, Paul Serville set about a design plan to create shifting dynamics and fleeting moods within the salon.

Opened in November 2003, the employment of New York Architect David Howell immediately gave Servilles Newmarket a stirring point of difference. An honourable balance of warmth and intimacy; energy and luxury are harmoniously distilled throughout five environments via the use of dark wooden floors, khaki tones and a 20 metre natural stone wall.
The traditional salon experience takes place across 325 square metres and begins in a haircare shopping space before moving onwards to the style area where luxury is opulent – beneath each client stands Philippe Starck leather chairs whilst a glowing Barrisol ceiling designed in France looms above. Just ahead lies the wellbeing area and, beyond the mirrored doors, a spacious colour lounge boasting New Zealand’s first Colour Bar abounds by beautiful gardens ensuring time-out from salon hustle and time-in for plasma screened fashion and hotel style food and beverage services.
