our story

Little Birdie Hair Co was founded by Tenille Lawrence in hopes of changing the way both hairdressers and clients view hairdressing. Our female-led team is focused on sustainability and the health of both our clients and their hair. For over 20 years, our team has been creating amazing hair without the use of harsh ingredients and synthetic additives. As the winners of the Australian Hair Industry Award for Best Eco Salon in 2020, we are proud pioneers of low tox, sustainable hairdressing and are ever evolving to be as green as possible.  In 2021 after hours spent on research and strategy were we were elated to become carbon neutral and hope that we may be able to lead the way for other salons to also follow suit.

We value our deep connection with the local community, and while staying active and connected during the COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult, we are still dedicated to providing a space for our clients to donate to many worthy causes. Each month, we choose three charities to support (one Domestic Violence based, one Animal Welfare based and one LGBTQIA+ based) and our clients can choose which they would like us to donate to on their behalf at the end of the month. This has allowed us to continue to support our communities whilst encouraging everyone to stay safe and healthy. 

We are also proud to announce we are the FIRST hair salon in Australia to be working towards a White Ribbon Accreditation. This accreditation will help us identify ways in which our staff are vulnerable to male-led violence in the home. We plan to apply these skills to both our staff and clientele to make our space a safe haven to those in need when breaking the domestic violence cycle. 

When you visit the salon, we hope you feel the love Tenille has put into every aspect of your visit. We have snacks available during your visit as well as an extensive drinks menu (why not enjoy a sneaky cocktail during your night visit?), blankets to keep you warm during winter and cool hand towels in the summer – we’ve thought of everything! LBHCo combines the values of empowerment, prosperity and sustainability to create a perfect client experience in line with out values and salon mission.
