we genuinely care about our guests and our planet

At Gaia we genuinely care about our guests and our planet. That’s why we’ve created a space for you to switch off and go inwards, incorporating the healing properties of rose quartz, calming detox waters and grounding warm stones into each experience. All while knowing that your rebalancing isn’t costing the earth. 

We are ethical and sustainable in every sense, carefully curating the highest quality hair experience for our guests. 

We’re a salon that feels more like a home, brimming with friends, love, and sustainable practices. We go above and beyond for your hair and the environment, cultivating an experience like no other.

our team

Gaia is driven by a small and dedicated team of stylists. Our salon is the manifestation of our founder’s life-long passion for hair, and desire to grow. 

meet the founder

Zenobia has been obsessed with hair for as long as she can remember. At 14, she got her first job in a small hairdresser’s salon in the UK as a shampoo girl, it was here that her passion for creating beautiful hair and providing a blissful service were ignited. 

As she grew, so did her love for hair, beauty, and people. While completing her Bachelor in Business Management and commencing her Masters of Social Work, Zenobia assisted in her Mother’s beauty salon offering hair styling and makeup services. After graduating university, she worked all over the UK in a corporate role, while also working with MAC Cosmetics and freelancing in bridal hair and makeup.

Zenobia always knew that one day her corporate career would underpin her drive to create a space that incorporated her passion for hair, beauty and ethical practices. 

Finally, a move to Melbourne in 2016 re-ignited her desire to work in salons, and she made the transition into the hairdressing industry. 

Gaia is the culmination of Zenobia’s love of people, planet, and creativity, it is the sanctuary that plays home to her deepest passions, and she welcomes you to join her and the Gaia team in nourishing hair, soul and earth.

We’ve only got one home, so we’ve got to look after it as best we can. That’s why we are sustainable in every sense, from the products we use, to the disposal of hair clippings, and through to the treats we offer our guests in-house.
