Amber at Ampersand Salon - Sustainable Hair Salon Manly Sydney




Amber is the founder and director of Ampersand Salon, having launched the salon in 2019 after wanting to bring natural, organic and healthy hair to a wider audience.


A trained hair stylist and New Zealand Native, Amber worked at top boutique salons in London, New Zealand and Sydney. Amber was inspired to launch Ampersand Salon after witnessing a lack of organic and healthy-focused salons that prioritised hair condition above anything else.
