RU&CO Hair Christchurch
Whether it is your first visit or your 122nd, all appointments begin with our Signature Consultation, and something from our in-salon comfort menu.

RU&CO salons are dedicated to delivering a little modest glamour and indulgence in a relaxed and sociable space.

With locations in Central Christchurch, Opawa, and Merivale, we are a vibrant team of professionals who create both cutting edge and more lived-in styles and colour, inspired by the street and international catwalk fashion.

RU&CO stylists use and recommend products from Schwarzkopf and Alterna. All of the team are experts in these brands and will always prescribe the right products and rituals to suit your needs… and none that you do not need.

We choose to partner with Schwarzkopf Professional for our colour work.

We’re committed to delivering beautiful hair that doesn’t cost the earth, and choose to partner with brands that support our sustainability efforts.

As a proud member of Sustainable Salons, our salon waste is sorted where most is recycled into new products, keeping the materials in circulation and out of the ocean – even made into things such as park benches!

100% of our colour tubes, tin foil and plastic bottles and chemical waste are recycled. Even our hair clippings are used in initiatives that clean up ocean waste.
