Head Zone

Support the next generation of hairdressers and save money by having your hair done at Head Zone, our training salon for hairdressing students.

Head Zone provides the environment of a commercial salon in order to prepare students for careers in the hairdressing industry.  

We need you - real clients, to come in and have your hair done!

Head Zone offers a range of treatments and services by first and second-year students including shampoo and sets to colours, perms and cuts. We also offer gift vouchers, loyalty cards and stock a range of retail products.


Please contact us for services and pricing. The salon is EFTPOS only for payment.

Opening Hours

Head Zone salon is open during term time by appointment Monday - Saturday

The Head Zone salon can be found on the second floor of the Hospitality and Wellbeing building - T Block, at the Nelson campus, entrance from 71 Nile Street, Nelson. 

Book an appointment

To make a booking, call us on 03 5462723

Please leave a message if we are unable to answer the phone as we are with clients.


We would really appreciate if you could try and give us 24 hours notice if you can't make your appointment, as it can be very disappointing for the student if you don't appear when they are expecting you.

Training Salon Considerations

While all treatments and services are supervised by experienced hairdressing tutors, please be aware that you are visiting a training salon so there are a few things to consider when making an appointment:

  • Time - our students need time to practise and services will often take longer than in a commercial salon, so please be patient.
  • Colour Tests - these are compulsory for every colour and need to be done within 48 of having a colour treatment.
  • Experience - there may sometimes be two students involved in your treatment or service. Please remember that these students are just starting out on their choice of careers.
