At Soma, we are crazy about sun protection and Environ has just made our year with the new RAD Shield Mineral Sunscreen.

The latest addition to their sun-care range has new generation zinc and titanium minerals that form a light-weight, transparent shield on your skin. This means more complete protection and fewer chemicals.

Don’t forget, all Environ is 20% off this month!

Have you ever heard someone say ‘if you cut your hair, it will grow faster?’ While this isn’t true, trimming the ends of your hair will keep them healthy and strong and will stop them from breaking and splitting. This will allow you to maintain the length that is growing from the root.

Redken’s Extreme Length with Biotin and soy proteins, will help strengthen damaged hair and reduce breakage by 81%. (It also makes the hair smooth and shiny.) The clients that are using Extreme Length have noticed their hair is more manageable and hydrated from the start and we’ve noticed a definite reduction in split ends after 6 weeks.

Here’s to long, luscious locks for summer!

Redken Extreme Length is on sale this month
Shampoo $28
Conditioner $28
Leave-in treatment $28
Normally $35 each

Increase skin radiance and luminosity ✔️

Minimise pores, fine lines and wrinkles ✔️

Smooth and glowing skin ✔️

The Pure Fiji Pure Vitamin C Masque does it all. Rich in antioxidants, the Kakadu Plum, Lime extracts and Vitamin C will help with dullness, pigmentation and signs of ageing. Use it as a 30 minute treatment or an overnight masque 2-3 times a week. Perfect prep for beautiful, summer skin!

It seems like everyone is talking about collagen so we wanted to break it down for you.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It makes up the structure of our skin, bones, tendons and ligaments. Unfortunately, as we get older, our bodies produce less and lower quality collagen which can lead to a loss of elasticity in the skin, joint pain and even digestive issues.

Earlier this year, we brought Aú Collagen Powder to Soma. It is a marine based collagen, made in NZ, with the added benefits of Vitamin C (helps absorb collagen), NZ Manukau Honey (fights infection and restores gut microbiome) and NZ Grape Seed Extract (reduces oxidative stress and anti inflammatory response).

It’s easily added into your daily routine. Just a teaspoon mixed into any food or drink, even your morning coffee. If you have any questions, add them to the comments or send us a message and we will get back to you!

Normally $59.95
This month $48

This month, we have 20% off retail stock in Redken, AÚ Natural Skinfood, Environ and the facial products from Pure Fiji.

Check in daily as we will show you some of our favourites and quick tips and tricks to get the most out of your products!

We love a good sale!

Happy Sunday friends!

We are looking forward to being back at it tomorrow. Just a few reminders while we are at level 2.5

•We will all be wearing masks and ask that you bring your own and wear it at all times inside the house.

•Please knock on the door when you arrive and while you are waiting, you can scan the Covid Tracer QR Code.

•Hand sanitiser is available or feel free to wash your hands when you arrive.

•There will be no food or drink (those pesky masks make it hard to get to your mouth😂).

•Please let us know if you are unwell so we can move your appointment and we will do the same if any of the Soma team are unwell.

We can’t wait to see you!

It’s the last ‘catch up with the team’ post tonight. I guess that means it’s time to get back to work on Monday! I’ve loved reading everyone’s posts and the gorgeous comments you’ve all left. The Soma team is truly outstanding. Can’t wait to see you all!❤️

What do you love most about your job?
This team of women! They are talented and funny, beautiful and caring. So often it is more like hanging out with your friends than actual work. Hair and Beauty are my passion so it’s the perfect way to spend my days. I love our clients and am privileged to call so many my friends. There is absolutely nothing I would rather do!

What do you do to stay busy and sane while Soma is closed during Level 3?
I was a stressed out mess the last time we did this so I promised myself I was going to stay calm and relax this time. We’ve worked on our winter garden, I’ve read plenty of books, started watching ‘The Walking Dead’ and done some work on the new Environ Facials and the website.

What are your must have products during lockdown?
During level 3 I’m not sure I would have survived without Redken 2-Day Extender and Powder Grip (I hate washing my hair), the new Pure Fiji Glycolic Overnight Renewal (absolutely divine) and of course the Environ Youth EssentiA range (you are going to have to drag me, kicking and screaming into my 50s).


If you haven’t been in the salon on a late night, you might not know our gorgeous Libby. Here’s what she has been up to!

What do you love most about your job?
I love the positive environment and meeting new people.

What do you do to stay busy and sane while Soma is closed during Level 3?
I do a lot of painting and snacking.

What are your must have products during lockdown?
The most ‘must have’ product I’m using during lockdown is the Redken Brownlights conditioner.

While her year hasn’t gone as planned, I think we would all agree, Melissa has been a life saver during this crazy, chaotic year. Here is what she has been up to.

What do you love most about your job?
If we hadn’t had this COVID-19 outbreak I actually wouldn’t be working at Soma, I would be overseas spending a third summer in the United States. While I am disappointed not to be travelling or have escaped winter again, I am grateful to have a job at Soma - I never quite know what to expect each day but am so glad to hang out with a great bunch of people every day!

What do you do to stay busy and sane while Soma is closed during Level 3?
I have been reading every chance I can get - new books and old favourites! I also have been practising my baking skills and trying out new recipes ready for testing by the Soma crew when we return to work!

What are your must have products during lockdown?
Environ A, C & E Oil; Coola mineral face SPF 30 matte Cucumber; Au Natural Collagen Powder

During lockdown I’m getting out for plenty of walks ,gardening. ticking off jobs from my to do list.

Exercise each day & have some quiet time with a good book & a cuppa.

What are your must have products during lockdown?
Youth Essentia Eye Gel... a product I would never be without! Also Li Lash... I absolutely love how this product turned my little stumpy lashes into beautiful long luscious ones!

Rachel is the busiest woman we know, yet always shows up with a smile!

What do you love most about your job?
That’s easy! I love the people, the place, the pampering. There’s something special about Soma it’s like my other home and sometimes it’s the escape I need from a busy home life. I enjoy knowing clients leave feeling better than when they arrived. Giving out a little care can sometimes mean so much. It’s great to see people caring for themselves and especially Mum’s that do so much for others, having time for self

What do you do to stay busy and sane while Soma is closed during Level 3?
Has definitely been ME time. Something I never put at the top of my priorities but I’m learning this year! I’ve really enjoyed daily walks, doing some yoga and following a TV series for the first time in years. Leaving the chaos and mess and knowing I’ll eventually have the house back to normal, enjoying the family time, the laughs and slower pace, the dinner for 6 every night of the week and of course the sunny days.

What are your must have products during lockdown?
Using my Environ Gold Roller more with Avance Moisturiser and Hydrating Oil Capsules. Plus the Dilo Rescue Body Butter for the hands to help counteract all that hand washing!

Environ Eye Gel

Grace joined the beauty team late last year and we love having her at Soma. Here’s what she had to say:

What do you love most about your job?
I love the amazing group of women that i work with, and I also love being able to provide a relaxing, enjoyable experience for people when they come in for whatever it may be, because especially at a time like this, it's nice to spend time with other people in a positive way.

What do you do to stay busy and sane while Soma is closed during Level 3?
Well, last time we went into lockdown my sleep schedule got a bit messed up and I was basically nocturnal, so this time around I have been trying to get up earlier and having a more productive start to the day.

While she isn’t at Soma everyday, June is always available for makeup and makeup consultations. Here’s what she is up to in Level 3.

What do you love most about your job?
There is nothing more fun than exploring makeup. I love showing people tricks and tips and I also enjoy showing my lovely ladies how makeup enhances your beauty and revs up self-esteem.

What do you do to stay busy and sane while Soma is closed during Level 3?
Level 3 is the perfect time to scroll through Internet advice posts and watch makeup tutorials. I love to read and find time to bake or try new recipes.

What are your must have products during lockdown?
Must haves- anyone who knows me knows I am a lover of facials so while we can’t get a facial at Soma, my favourites are the Pure Fiji Papaya Purifying Enzyme Mask and Aú Honey and Bee Venom Sheet Mask. In fact I’m using one right now.

Tonight is a face most of you will recognise. Gae has been with Soma since we opened, 14 years ago.

What do you love most about your job?
My job is brilliant, I love being part of an exceptional team of talented ladies and get to meet, greet and chat to all our lovely clients.

What do you do to stay busy and sane while Soma is closed during Level 3?
While in Level 3, walking and doing my yoga stretches helps me feel pretty good and definitely video calling the grandchildren (and not forgetting, maybe a little alcohol 🍷)

What are your must have products during lockdown?
We all have lots of products in our cupboards that we love but my top three are my Environ EssentiA Eye cream and Skin EssentiA 5 Moisturiser and one I always go to, is Pure Fiji Dilo Rescue Cream.
