About Us

Hi, I'm Christine, owner and founder of  Improving Appearances Beauty Salon.

Whilst living in Australia, I decided upon a career change, so as a mature student, I attended one of Sydney's leading private training colleges and proudly gained a wide range of Beauty Therapy Qualifications and skills which enabled me to work and experience a variety of Sydney's Salons and Day Spas. 

I returned to NZ in 2005 and 18 months later opened this salon in Richmond. The salon provides clean comforable surroundings with plenty of natural light and warmth. Services are performed professionally in hygenic conditions with privacy and discretion assured. Beauty Treatments and Products are affordably priced, and advice is free on your beauty needs and concerns.

As I believe you should be able to look as good as you can, regardless of age, sex, wealth or health, without spending excessively on overpriced, underperforming products and services (or even injections or surgery) I hope you will find that your time with us well spent, and the results received exceed your expectations or previous experiences.

Everyday I still have the passion for the joy I can bring to a client"s wellbeing and appearance, regardless of the treatment performed. It is a very rewarding profession, with a big "feel good" factor to it. I hope you will consider us as your future salon and come and see what we can do for you. 

Christine Coles.
