Our Story

Definition of Kokoro; the Japanese word for heart which symbolizes our passion for the art of hairstyling.
Salon Kokoro was founded in March 2017 by Susan Whalen who has been working in the hair industry for over 12 years. Having worked with her team for 4 years prior to opening Salon Kokoro they are more than just co-workers, they are a family and a fun-loving team who are on a mission to change the way guests are serviced in the hair industry.
At Salon Kokoro our stylists will give you a thorough consultation followed by a relaxing scalp massage, cut, colour and style to suit your individual needs. Your stylist will finish with a professional product recommendation to help you look your best and maintain your new look.

Green Circle Salons

At Salon Kokoro, we understand the importance of being environmentally friendly. That is why we have partnered up with Green Circle Salons to reduce our waste by 85-95%.
In the hair industry, many salons have large carbon foot prints due to the difficulty that comes with going green. As a result, businesses are dumping tens of thousands of kilograms of waste down the drain. As a certified Green Circle Salon, we ensure that our salon waste is recycled or managed in a way that is environmentally responsible.
