About Druthers Collective

nikki and dwight

After years of working together, founders, Nikki and Dwight collaborated to bring their ideas of an amazing client experience and happy work environment together; to create their dream salon. The vision for Druthers Collective was to create a space, salon and working environment that felt like home to everyone who visited. Beautiful hair and consistently great service is what makes Druthers a great salon. But a warm and inviting space, kind and genuine people and a strong community focus is what makes Druthers a Collective.

Our spacious salon offers comfort and plenty of room to spread yourself out and relax while you get pampered. Get breakfast or lunch sent over from Chapter 2, catch up with your stylist and other guests while your hair is treated and transformed. With industrial but soft finishes, the interior is warm and inviting. A large timber table in the centre of the salon replaces traditional stations to encourage a more relaxed sense and invite conversation and connection. Dwight and Nikki really wanted recreate the feeling and warmth of your favourite café or the comfort of your living room, within their salon.

Our team, our community and our guests are the most important thing to us. At Druthers, we are a passionate and inspired bunch who love all things hair and all things people. We believe if we take care of our people; offer them support, balance and opportunity – together we can make the world a much happier place.

Making Our World A Happier Place

Being sustainable and putting the earth first is a huge priority of ours. So, we are extremely proud to be a “Sustainable Salon”! So, what does that mean? It means we recycle just about EVERYTHING in the salon! With the assistance of Sustainable Salons Australia, we are able to recycle hair, plastics, metals, paper, sharps, electrical, chemicals… and the list goes on! We collect and separate all waste in the salon, for SSA to collect and distribute to the relevant recycling organisations. Any money raised from recycling processes i.e. aluminium 

plants or the resale of copper from tools and electrical, goes to feeding the hungry via our friends at Oz Harvest! We can also donate your hair! Those tiny strands from your 5 weekly trim go straight to creating booms that are used do absorb oil spills in the ocean. Even more exciting is that we can donate ponytails to Variety Australia. These go towards making wigs for kids who need them! The work they do for our community and our planet is phenomenal!
