Beautiful Hair,
Starts in a Beautiful Salon..

Antonia Brydon has owned Tonic Hair Culture and Beauty for twenty years after purchasing the business back in 2001.

Since purchasing the business, Antonia set about building her vision of a “one stop beauty destination” which culminated in the creation of the new salon in 2010 on Queen Street in Richmond.

Antonia's aim was to provide more services to her clientele in a salon with easy access, but for it to be a private haven, away from stark lights and noise of the mall environment.

Antonia is hugely proud of her team, who are professional and passionate about what they do.

Some People Say

Tonic was the 'hairdresser of choice' for my daughter's recent wedding. Not only was the bride's and bridesmaid's hair amazing, they also looked after me with a blow-wave. Everyone's hair 'held' all day - even with the rain! Tonic's ladies were super professional yet friendly, and they had everyone ready before time! Can't thank you all enough for taking care of us and bringing a great vibe to a very special day!
Sandra Johnson

Had an appointment with Alysha today and I was so happy with my cut. Definitely recommend and she’s friendly.
Michelle A Crowie-Donjeany

Had THE MOST amazing hair-cutting experience EVER here! Professional, clean, friendly, great vibe, ah-mazing head massage while getting a shampoo...and probably the best haircut I have ever gotten in my life (thanks Lou!). Quite seriously :) Their customer service is above and beyond anything I have experienced in this industry or any other. I can't recommend this place enough!!! Will definitely be coming back again and again! Thanks so much!!!
Dani Es

Had a really great experience here last week. Lou on the phone was friendly and great to deal with. Alysha did my hair and would 100% recommend her, really listened to what I wanted and was super lovely!
Georgia Affleck

Pille you are amazing. Hair up for a wedding on the weekend. Roughly knowing what i wanted you listened, advised and created magic, absolutely loved what you created, thank you for your time and patients with my thick curly hair.
Glenda McMinn-South

Tonic did the hair and make-up for our Nelson based wedding recently! Marianne was amazing, so friendly and helpful to deal with while we were planning from the UK. No question was too much trouble! The bridesmaids looked amazing, my mum looked fab and I loved my hair and make-up as well! I would definitely recommend Tonic Hairculture & Beauty for wedding hair and make-up if your looking in the Nelson region. Thanks Marianne, Ebony, Sairin and Eden you made our day so stress free! Apologies for the millions of tears (happy tears) you had to put up with! Thanks again! Xx.
Hayley Auld

Tonic did the hair and makeup for our wedding in Nelson and they were amazing. Marianne was so so easy and fun to deal with, and the girls did a perfect job of making me and the bridesmaids look beautiful. We had loads of fun in the salon on the day and I would recommend Ebony and Eden for weddings in a heartbeat. Thanks so much tonic!
