Mario and Meg care about healthy hair at organic Noosa salon
IT OFTEN seems that most women with straight hair want curly hair and most women with curly hair want straight hair.
Above all, since our hair is a big part of how we present ourselves to the world, we want it to express our personality when possible.
As we age, we want the products and the way our hair is styled to be gentle, safe and 'nutritious'.
Sunshine Coast hairdressing salon Mario Mario has earned a loyal following from locals and visitors because of an overriding devotion to safe and healthy hair styling using totally organic products and solar-filtered water.
"We like to say we are both very ecologically minded," said Meg Agostino, whose husband Mario trained with the famous Vidal Sassoon in London.
Meg said her husband was a craftsman when it came to hairstyling.
"Craftsmanship runs in the family - Mario's Italian-born father, a shoemaker, was the best at his craft," she said.
Senior stylists at the Mario Mario salon also have a wealth of experience. All were trained locally or in Sydney, Melbourne or London.
Hair products are locally based (in Coolum) and are certified organic, including the EverEscents product range that is free of silicone, sulphate, paraben and formaldehyde.
The colour range is French and very gentle on the hair, leaving it glossy, wonderful to the touch - and healthy.
"Mario Mario uses only filtered water at the basin for true, beautiful lasting colours and the complimentary cinnamon and patchouli deep treatment is amazing," Meg said.
"There is no substitute for lush, healthy, shining hair."
Mario and Meg - a former Sydney fashion clothing retailer - invite Seniors Newspaper readers to enjoy a visit to the salon in the relaxed, creative, friendly and affordable environment, and to share a cup of coffee.
The salon is at shop 3/16 Lanyana Way, Noosa Heads, opposite Noosa Fair shopping centre. Phone 5449 2888.
