Our Story

Life is too short for boring hair, get ready to impress.

the industry hair salon •  Christchurch • Since 2005


Our award-winning salon is best known for its exceptional quality of innovative work, standard of service and upbeat atmosphere.

The Industry Christchurch is now a family-run salon with over 35 years of hairdressing experience.

Amy with over 17 years of experience and Michelle having already owned the salon for the previous 15 years, has now taken Amy under her wing and shared the role of ownership with her.

Our team, varying from individual stylists, trainee designers and receptionists, they each have their own individual personalities and qualities which they bring to the team… We call this our family.

If you’re looking for either a hair up for that special occasion, a restyle or a little trim. We can also offer you Organic colour systems along side our Wella colour range. Just come in for your bespoke consultation and you can relax with a cheeky coffee and cake.

‘A very unique bond between Auntie and niece, Michelle and Amy.’

We are happy to announce our membership to the Green Salon Collective who facilitate the salon sustainability by recycling the unrecyclable.

“Whenever you walk into The Industry in Christchurch you will always without a doubt be greeted with a warm & friendly reception. Michelle has been cutting my hair for more years then either of us would like to reveal, as a fellow hair stylist I wouldn’t go anywhere else. All the staff are so engaging all very much on trend & I would recommend this delightful salon in a heartbeat. Thank you for all my amazing styles “
