Koto Salon

Hello dear customers. Please note have moved to a new location a just across the road to 1469 Malvern Rd, Glen Iris

With the ever increasing demands placed on the work/life balance, Kristy and Tahleaha set about creating an alternative space, a place that you could come and relax, have some time for yourself, in a high end boutique salon where you would receive cutting edge and professional hair services for both men and women. In essence you would leave feeling glamorous and that you had had that much elusive, “Me time!”

Add a dash of whimsy, a sense of humour, appreciation for creativity and artistry, and wrap it all up in an environment that fosters creative thinking and the individual. When we do something we want to do it perfectly. Hairdressing is in our DNA. It’s what allows our stylists to provide highlights, cuts, blow waves, hair color, and straightening services on par with world class salons. As any tradesman will tell you, “you gotta have the right tool for the right job.” That’s why we’ve chosen to partner with Ozdare who distribute products such as American Crew, Kevin Murphy and Revlon Professional to support our styling and care. We’ve chosen these products because they have premium ingredients, whilst being natural and environmentally friendly.

Aside from terrific results, we think it’s important to align ourselves with fashion forward companies that already have the kinks worked out. While other salons tango with the shampoo-of-tomorrow or color-of-the-month, our stylist/colorists are focused and creating looks ranging from modern to classic. As one of Melbourne’s leading boutique salons, we’ll be happy to answer any hair care questions or suggest the perfect styling products or tool for you, all with a smile.

The culture of Koto Hair is one of respect. We’ve understood from the beginning that we couldn’t exist separate from the community and world in which we do business. We strive to make a difference every day by making smart environmental choices as well as supporting our local community through fundraising events as well as causes that care for humankind. We have been honored to be recognised by our local community for our work on several occasions and we are proud of the intent that exists in our salon. Whether you’re a guy looking for a cut, or a girl looking for a fabulous new look, we’ve got you covered. We invite you to make an appointment with one of our highly trained staff and come and see what Koto Hair is all about!
