In the midst of our nine-to-five working week and juggling a million and one things in between, finding the time to get our hair did, just ain’t as easy as it should be. No matter how quickly you race out of work and to the salon, Auckland traffic will always find a way to intervene and to your utter dismay the lights are out, the salon is shut and your hair still resembles a mop.
And, it seems that some of Auckland’s top hairdressers have heard our prayers and are offering late-night sessions for all us busy bees out there! For a full round-up of where to cop a late-night chop, read on and get ready to book!
