Colleen’s beautiful Karangahape Road salon was established in 2016 by Lauren Gunn.

Situated on the same block as The Caker, Daily Daily, Melanie Roger, Mokopopaki and Peaches and Cream, the salon quickly achieved cult status as a destination on Karangahape Road.

The team behind this success boasts some of the country’s top stylists and colorists; you’ll see them pop up from time to time in our campaigns and stories.
We think sustainable practices are cool! That why our packaging is 100% FSC certified as minimal as possible, in keeping with the low fuss, low waste ethos of Colleen.

You’ll never need to run out of shampoo again.
