PRICE CHANGES & SALON UPDATES
Firstly, I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your ongoing support since we opened just over 3 years ago.
Since COVID the unfortunate reality is the cost of operating has significantly increased. Professional product supplies, shipping and commercial power rates are just a small handful of the operating cost increases we've been trying to absorb over the past 12 months.
Additionally, the increase in the minimum wage pushes all wages up across the board, along with the fees related to the pending introduction of AEWV by Immigration New Zealand, and the government doubling sick leave entitlements, all comes at a cost.
Taking all of this into account, I've had to make the hard decision to make some small price increases to some treatments.
The increases will still keep our pricing very competitive, with our increases ranging between $2 to $15. The higher increases are for the more specialised treatments like acrylic nail extensions.
In addition to this we have made some substantial price decreases to lash extension services, so it’s not all bad news!
I have done a lot of research and using a gel polish manicure or pedicure with gel removal as an example, our new pricing still makes us $5 to $37 cheaper than other multi therapist salons in Queenstown.
All existing bookings will remain at their original price, while all future bookings made from today will be at the new listed pricing.

In the coming months, I am excited to announce we will be launching a graduate therapist program. This means there will be a range of treatments on offer at a discounted rate while they build their experience, portfolio and develop their skills with the support of our senior team.
Again, thank you so much for your support of a locally owned & operated business - each and every one of you is so important to us and we love having you in salon. I really hate having to do this, however, the ever-changing landscape of trying to run a service-based business post-COVID is forcing my hand.
Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
Look forward to seeing you in salon again soon,
