Welcome to Koto.

We are Kristy and Tahleaha – two hardworking sisters who have combined their passion for hair with their love for expression to create something special.

We truly believe in the poetic beauty of hair and that it is a form of self expression, much like the way we dress or the feelings we convey.
At Koto, we embrace the unique style of each and every person, creating an experience that captures individuality and is full of creativity. We combine cutting edge trends with expert skill to produce an exclusive salon experience.
Koto Hair is a Kevin Murphy Session Salon, meaning our expert staff are specially trained in the products and ‘test run’ them before they are released.

All of this is done using eco-friendly products that lesson our carbon footprint and are kind to our planet. Contact Koto Hair to book or to have a chat with one of our friendly staff members.

Stellar Results. Exceedingly happy customers.

We provide a boutique style service and have created a sanctuary for our clients, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Located within the Malvern Road precinct, our space is a way for you to relax, unwind and recharge, while we ensure you leave feeling and looking your best. Every client is unique – whether you are visiting us for an express blow-dry or a transformative cut and colour, we tailor every service to you. You are all part of the Koto community.

Customer care is at the heart of everything we do. Whether we are helping you on the phone or greeting you as you step through the door, your experience at our salon will be like no other and will keep you coming back. This is the only way we know how to do business.

 

“Absolutely brilliant service from these lovely ladies. Always satisfied when I leave and
feeling like a new woman. I highly recommend paying a visit!”
~ Ashleigh McGregor

The Koto environment is fun, uplifting and vibrant, while also creating a home away from home experience. We are like catching up with an old friend and every customer is treated like royalty. We know how you take your coffee and can’t wait to hear all about the occasion you were dolling up for last time.

We not only love our customers – we know them.

Beauty

We love the family feel here at Koto and that’s why Koto Beauty is run by another sister dynamic duo – Lucy and Billie. The two sisters have created a space for you to feel completely relaxed and tranquil, which is why they specialise in eyelash extensions – offering both classic and Russion volume.

The Koto Difference

We tailor our services to each individual, whether you want to keep things comfortable or really take it to the next level. From cascading curls to a colour retouch to a dramatic electric blonde look, we are here to help bring your vision to life.

  • We are a certified member of Sustainable Salons Australia and only use products that are kind to the environment.
  • We are passionate about our local community and regularly contribute to school fundraisers and charity events.
