Getting the cut

Creating fantastic, stylish results, while keeping prices affordable, is always the goal at local salon, Haircuts for Haircuts.



With two modern and contemporary stores located at Bush Inn and South City, the salon have been producing haircuts for everyone from preschoolers to pensioners – and all ages in between – for more than 30 years.

Owner and operator Michelle Butterfield says the key to such a loyal customer base is the friendly and experienced staff, who are all fully qualified hair stylists, some who have worked with the company for more than 20 years!

“Haircuts for Haircuts is a long-established cutting bar that has continued to provide professional, affordable haircuts for men, women and children, while also delivering an efficient and friendly service in a welcoming environment,” Michelle says.

Open seven days a week, no appointment is necessary at either branch, however clients can opt to wait for their preferred stylist.

Aiming to always keep prices reasonable, the ever-popular Clipper Cut is still available for just $13.

The team also offers a loyalty system with every eighth haircut free, as well as pensioner and student discounts.

“We want every client to leave the salon happy with their haircut and we always keep up-to-date with the latest trends and styles. It’s about offering haircuts at an affordable price, while delivering a fantastic result for the entire family.”

Find Haircuts for Haircuts at the Bush Inn Centre, phone 03 348 7008 or South City Centre 03 366 0619.

Four years ago, Japanz Bakery moved from the original central CBD location to SouthCity Centre at 555 Colombo Street, where it continues to thrive thanks to a loyal customer base and the selection of delicious delectable delights. Always popular are the croissants, gingerbread men and cream donuts. There are four flavours of donut to choose from; Custard, ChocoCustard, Redbeans and CoffeeCream.
