Tell us about Pura Holistic hair studio and how it came to be?

Pura Holistic hair studio is Canberra’s New Fully Organic, Plant-based and Sustainable Hair salon, which is about unleashing your best self, and flourishing with our holistic approach to hair with wellness. At Pura, we focus on inner and outer wellness for beautiful hair, alongside a thriving body and a happy heart. Our salon is a place where we come together and nurture true, authentic connections in a welcoming and empowering environment.

Our focus is on high-quality, gorgeous, healthy hair with the total connection of hair, body & mind via our 360 degree approach including microscopic hair and scalp analysis, service and take home inner and outer treatment plan.

​Every aspect of the salon looks to ensure a low tox, pampering, organic, plant-based and sustainable experience. From the indulgent pre-service and during-service head massages to our ‘replenish’ take-home products refill station and carefully selected organic health-supportive teas, we aim to have you leaving our space feeling relaxed, calm, happy and knowing you are beautiful.

Pura came about because I wasn’t able to find a salon anywhere locally that was fully plant based, sustainable, organic and focused on total wellness. Our hair tells us much about our inner health and visa versa and many people don’t understand the power of healthy mind, body, hair and skin connection. I wanted to bring all of my skills together, shaking up the norm creating a very unique space.

How can we support Pura Holistic hair studio?

Come visit us of course so we can serve you, add health to your hair and encourage you to flourish, as well as share the love to many. We are currently offering 15% off the first appointment for all of the cbrwoman tribe.

Any advice for those wanting to turn their dream into a reality?

A dream without action is only a wish. Often in life we aim for achievement – ie, the degree, the house, the status. Unfortunately this isn’t where happiness lies. Ture happiness and success is finding fulfillment WITHIN the achievement and the only way to do that is by following your values, your purpose and serving others, Shake up the norm, for it is only an illusion. The only way to switch from a dream to creation, from believing to knowing is to take action, no matter how scary – the worst thing that can happen is feedback and learnings, which we can reframe into a positive, always. Lastly, if you’re worried about what people think, always remember what people think of you is none of YOUR business, only theirs.
