Established in 1999 by Greg Murrell, Ryder Salon has become renowned for its work in fashion shows and editorial photography.
In addition to running Ryder, Greg has devoted much energy to fashion shows and photographic work for both iconic and upcoming New Zealand fashion brands that include Stolen Girlfriends Club, Zambesi, Crane Brothers and Ingrid Starnes.
Ryders signature style includes giving a fashion edge to wearable hairstyles, creating interesting new textures and working in a naturalistic but well-shaped way.
Located on the corner of Customs Street and Britomart Place, in the downtown Britomart fashion and dining precinct of Auckland.
The design of the salon, by architects Petr Cvejn and Andrew Greenslade, makes abstract references to steel workshops and wooden boat construction, as a reflection of its waterfront context and is infused with a modern Japanese sense of purity, with moiré patterns, notions of brickwork, and the warmth of natural wood as key elements.
The timber screens that are the central design feature of the salon separate the styling and washing spaces and provide privacy from the street while still allowing glimpses of the busy life of the city outside.
Ryder has long had a collaborative relationship with top New Zealand conceptual sculptor Michael Parekowhai and installations of his artwork can be seen throughout the salon.
The retail zone at reception carries a full range of hair care, treatment and styling products and tools.
Product ranges include KMS California, Kevin Murphy, Davines, Kerastase, Cloud 9 and ghd styling tools along with a curated selection of luxury beauty and lifestyle products, such as Curio Noir candles and Vetyver Bergamot fragrance by Ingrid Starnes.
Ryder Salon offers haircuts, colour and styling for men and women in a way that is contemporary but personalised to suit the individual.
It’s a bespoke experience that uses the best techniques and products in the industry.
