about us

PURE COLLECTIVE IS CHRISTCHURCH’S
FOREMOST ORGANIC HAIR SALON & BARBER.

Bridging the gap between environmental consciousness, style and hair care excellence. With locations in Central Christchurch and Rolleston, our salons proudly prioritise sustainability: boasting a remarkable 91% commitment to natural and organic practices. Our skilled team of stylists – deeply attuned to eco-friendly principles – provides an extensive array of services, encompassing colouring, styling, and barbering.

EARTH FRIENDLY PRODUCTS & PROCESSES

All of our products are natural, organic and sustainable, and most are vegan. We prioritise our clients’ health and wellbeing without compromising on quality. We use paper in the salon as an alternative to tin foil, which we wash and reuse to reduce our impact on landfill.
We collect hair, which is upcycled and used as a sustainable material. We’re proud to offer refills for some retail products like shampoo and conditioner. Bring in your clean empty bottle for refilling to receive a green discount on your product!

HOW WE REDUCE WASTE

We recycle all glass, and as many plastics as we can, and we are very conscious of keeping our plastic consumption to a minimum. We recycle our cardboard through Reclaim Christchurch. They are 100% New Zealand and 0% Landfill.

ECO ENERGY & SUSTAINABLE WATER PRACTICES

We are proud to use Meridian energy as our provider. Meridian is one of New Zealand’s leading power companies, generating power from only 100% renewable sources. At the basin we use eco heads to minimize water usage. This includes a special filtration system that ionizes the water and removes sediment – leaving the hair cleaner and healthier.

HAIR DONATION

When there is a significant amount of hair collected from a single client’s cut or restyle, we donate that hair to Sustainable Salons Australia. Sustainable Salons collects ponytails and distributes them to charitable organisations and local wig-makers where they can become wigs for those suffering from medically induced hair-loss conditions such as alopecia and cancer.

AS SOON AS I WALKED INTO THE SALON I FELT REALLY HAPPY AND COMFORTABLE
“I was recommended to visit Pipa few years ago. As soon as I walked into the salon I felt really happy and comfortable. I buy all my hair care products from Pure Collective because I just love the integrity and pure mess of what they use and sell. I really appreciate the good manners of the team and the way I’m treated, I trust their judgment and what they offer.”

YOU GO THERE TO HAVE AN EXPERIENCE, NOT JUST TO GET YOUR HAIR DONE
“The team at Pure Collective always listens to what I say and they care, giving me what I want every time. I really trust their knowledge and expertise. They’re just a really great bunch of friendly bonded people who care and are interested in you as a person. I love the quality of their products, they fact that they’re sustainable, recyclable, and have no nasties in them. The results of using them on my hair are just unbelievable! I think you go there to have an experience not just to get your hair done. Pure Collective is up there with number 1 in my view, simply one of the best hairdressers in Christchurch.”

Amanda Carrides

THEIR SKILLS AND EXPERTISE SEE ME COME BACK TIME AND TIME AGAIN
“The team at Pure Collective rescued me from a very disappointing colouring experience 3 years ago and I haven’t looked back. Now I also buy all my finishing products and shampoo there, I love the result of them on my hair. It’s just a lovely salon to visit and the team is great and welcoming and nothing’s ever a problem. Their skills and expertise see me come back time and time again.”

THEIR ADVICE IS JUST SO ON THE BUTTON WITH MY HAIRSTYLE AND COLOUR
“Pure Collective has the most wonderful team, so friendly, so welcoming. Their advice is just so on the button with my hairstyle and colour. I’ve never had a bad experience and I just love them to bits. They know their clients so well which really creates trust.
At the time I found Pure Collective I was looking for a change. I loved their sustainability concept, it was very much a draw card as to why I tried them and the experience had been so much more than that so I’ve continued. I love the regular catch ups, the conversation time and the overall experience.”
