ersonable, discerning and elegant, Miss Gertrude is a new addition to the booming Gertrude Street scene. Neatly tucked just off the main strip, underneath The Everleigh, this hair salon is a notch above the usual snip and colour.
The Miss Gertrude muse materialises as a long line of Gertrudes through the ages. From the literary influence of Gertrude Stein to the cartooned Miss Gertrude McFuzz of Dr Seuss fiction, many Gertrudes have made their mark on the serene, yet whimsical space.
A generous entry hall belies the intimate experience at Miss Gertrude. The cavernous space exudes a warm, natural quality, with recycled timber trestles, benches and shelving throughout. This Gertrude is environmentally minded too. They only use pure products that – where possible – are derived from organic ingredients and Australian made.
Devotion to sustainability is balanced with dedication to style at Miss Gertrude. The service is impeccable, with an attentive team of stylists and colourists at hand to attend to your locks with the latest in hair care and trends. An appointment at Miss Gertrude is intended to leave one feeling appreciated and refreshed.
One’s home may also feel a little rejuvenated after a visit to Miss Gertrude. Mr Kitly is currently exhibiting a range of ceramics, woodwork, paper goods and plant life in the space, all available to admire and purchase. Who knows, you might come for a haircut and leave with something for the house. As long as it works with your new do, that is.
