Located on Magill Road in the heart of Adelaide’s Eastern suburbs, Sueño Hair has officially opened its new and aesthetically pleasing salon with an eco-conscious and sustainable twist.
After building up a loyal client base and outgrowing their original space, the husband and wife team, Lia and Jim, purchased a salon across the road from their existing shop to tailor a new space specifically to the needs of their clients and staff.
Working with the Sustainable Salon program for a number of years, the Sueño team has now been able to build their own unique sustainable salon fitted with 30 kilowatt solar panels with volumes that meet an almost neutral power bill.
The polished concrete floors and industrial glass windows ensure the salon has great thermal regulation and owners Lia and Jim are proud to say that all brands including the salon’s colour range are now low toxic and chemical-free.
Co-owner, Lia Kefalianos says, “Since opening our original salon across the road, we have always strived to be as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible but reaching a point where every brand and product used on our clients is low toxic and chemical-free is something we are truly proud of.”
Designed and built in the midst of COVID restrictions, the team was determined to create a calm and spacious atmosphere, utilising the large building to create an elegant haircare facility, without the worry of social distancing.
Within the new spacious facility, Sueño has built a fully equipped private salon providing clients who are immunocompromised, and/or clients who may feel anxious around people, the opportunity to still enjoy this indulgent salon experience.
“We wanted to make our salon a place that when you walk through the door you instantly feel relaxed and transported to somewhere else, a place that COVID doesn’t exist,” Jim Kefalianos says.
“We also noticed many of our clients are working from home so we decided to provide a space where they could not only get their hair done, but also smash out some work.”
Designed by Adelaide based Interior Designer, Claire Kneebone, this new luxury salon features a timeless, earthy look with natural stone benchtops, stunning walnut cabinetry, polished concrete floors and industrial windows.
Just like walking into a day spa, Sueño has additionally created an exquisite basin room with Maletti Basin chairs that offer a sensational massage, eye masks and meditation music for a full relaxation experience.
Sueño Hair is located at 349 Magill Road St Morris SA 5068.
