Meet 2013 ERWA entrant Lynne Johnston 16-Apr-2013

April 16, 2013 10:50 pm

Lynne Johnston’s hair and beauty salon business is based at Riversdale in Southland. Herd About Hair & Beauty began in 2008 when she realised the need to diversify the family’s reliance on dairy share milking income after the downturn. 

She first re-opened a hair salon in Riversdale that had ceased trading a year and a half earlier, growing the business to employ staff to work alongside her. In response to the success of the hair salon she rented a second shop next door and employed a beauty therapist, offering a range of beauty treatments in addition to hair dressing. Both the hair and beauty salons are now open six days a week.

In the meantime, Lynne has grown her own family, with a fourth child born in February 2011. She is also still involved on the farm, rearing calves through the spring. The success of Herd About Hair & Beauty is based on offering rural people everything a city salon could offer, with exceptional service, with the mission statement ‘a little bit of luxury close to home.’ Visit the salon online for price lists and services.
