COMING 1st of November – Aveda’s Shampure Dry Shampoo!

We have been waiting a long time for this product, and the wait is nearly over!! Aveda are launching their first ever Shampure Dry Shampoo! Designed to remove the feeling of oil from the hair without drying or causing damage to the hair. This non-aerosol product is talc-free and smells amazing!

Shakira got to use the Shampure Dry Shampoo when she was in New York and here is what she had to say:

“The Shampure Dry Shampoo is so light! Being that it is a non-aerosol product the feeling of it in the hair is smooth and fluid, it does not feel gritty or tacky. After applying it to the hair I could easily run my fingers through and manipulate the hair as desired. And best of all it smells amazing!”

If you would like to be first on the list to get your hands on this amazing product please contact your local Zucci store to put your name down to be contacted when it arrives in store.

NYC Fashion Week S/S 2016 – Shakira’s Adventure

New York Fashion Week 8th -15th September is one of the most influential Fashion Events in the world with 200 designers showcasing their collections. It was an intense and exhilarating time for Shakira, as she worked on nine shows as part of the Aveda Global Styling Team.

Shakira said “I worked with incredibly talented fashion stylists, models, photographers make-up artists and of course hairdressers. Successful collaboration was required to achieve the desired looks and ensure a successful show. Fashion week is a different world. One hair out of place could mean a complete redo. I felt this experience taught me a lot about working under pressure and trusting my skills and myself. You have to be resilient whilst physically, emotionally and spiritually strong to work on Fashion Week, it tests you. Would I do it again? Yes!”

Zucci Lifestyle Salon at St James Place Turns 1!

Thank you to our wonderful guests and the exceptional Zucci team for making this year such a very special one!

It was a year ago this month, that Rocco and Craig partnered to open a premier Zucci Salon in Melbourne’s legal district. They recognised that this end of the CBD lacked a quality salon, providing a focus on personalised service and technical expertise. It was through this meeting of minds that Zucci St James Place came to fruition. From the outset the salon has was very well received and continues to perform beyond our expectations.

We have asked Craig to share his thoughts on the Zucci St James journey to date.

Describe what you love most about Zucci St James? 

After working in all the Zucci salons over many years it’s been wonderful to collaborate in creating a complimentary addition to the brand, in the St James Place Salon. A new salon requires developing new relationships and we have enjoyed getting to know our new guests, which due to our location, come predominantly from the legal professions. It has been incredibly satisfying in identifying the needs of our guests and then developing the service regimes that best suit them.

Coming to work everyday in the beautifully designed space with high-end finesse and luxurious minimal finishes is a daily joy and I am privileged to be a part of it. The Space has been superbly designed throughout to not only appeal to the Guest but to also be effortless for the team to work within it.

What has your first year at Zucci St James been like? 

This past year has been filled with excitement and promise. It has been a year of learning for myself and the team. As a Zucci Lifestyle Salon our focus is on providing a service, which we hope exceeds our guests expectations. Our aim is to provide a wonderful salon experience in a beautiful space, which also serves as a haven from the frenetic pace of the city outside our doors.

There is more to cutting hair than meets the eye…

At Zucci “Uniquely You” is our focus. We work with your wants and wishes, combined with that signature personal touch from each of our talented stylists and colourists, to achieve the desired look!

This focus requires constant skill development and that is why we have implemented a comprehensive 10 month intensive technical cutting and styling program for our styling team throughout all ZUCCi salons. The program is led by Dario Cotroneo a Sydney based hairdresser whom we have held in high regard for many years. After extensive consultation and discussion with the management team we selected Dario as our trainer. We had long admired his technical ability and his understanding of the ZUCCI culture, ensured a successful fit.
Dario has been working with our senior team for 6 months honing their cutting and styling skills whilst also fine tuning communication skills. Asking the ‘right’ questions and being able to listen and interpret the guests needs is fundamental to ensure a successful outcome, namely a beautifully crafted look.

The team are enjoying their training and are finding it incredibly inspiring. This inspiration translates into the creation of beautiful cutting and styling work, with guests leaving our salons with beautiful hair reflecting their wants and wishes. We are receiving positive comments from our guests which reinforces to all of us, the importance of continual learning and development.

The ZUCCi team members taking part in the training intensive are:
Ivanhoe Salon – Jade, Courtney
South Melbourne Salon – Rosemary, Kimberley, Ray Ray
David Jones Lifestyle Salon, CBD – Bianca, Sarah, Clint, Christina
St James Place Salon (Bourke St, CBD) – Charles, Giulia and Paige

Brides of Zucci

This year two members of our Zucci family where married. Lauren from Ivanhoe wed her now husband Troy in February at a beautiful ceremony along the Yarra. It was a beautiful sunny day and the wedding was full of laughter, tears, dancing, eating, drinking and love. It was such a fun night and Lauren looked amazing. Jade from Ivanhoe styled her hair and Shakira from South Melbourne was the MC for the day. Lauren and Troy had the best day and they went on a fabulous holiday to New York for their honeymoon.


In May Ray Ray and her now husband Hong where married in a 3 part wedding spectacular. Ray Ray being of Chinese dissent and Hong being of Malaysian dissent and now both of them living in Australia meant it was a blending of cultures and traditions. Family flew in from all over the world and Ray Ray wore three dresses and had three hair changes for her special day. Rosemary and Zak from South Melbourne where the glam squad to keep everyone looking amazing all day. A traditional Tea Ceremony saw the merging of 2 families into one. Everyone danced well into the night to celebrate the love of these two special people.

Smooth Infusions Nourishing Styling Crème

We at Zucci are excited to announce a new product release from Aveda. The Smooth Infusions Nourishing Styling Crème is a conditioning styling crème that moisturises hair and creates smooth, soft hairstyles with movement while fighting frizz all day, even in intense humidity.
This beautiful product has certified organic capuacu and shea butter to create a lightweight barrier around each hair strand to condition and smooth the cuticle and keep necessary moisture in and unnecessary moisture like humidity out.
The Smooth Infusions Nourishing Styling Crème is ideal for woman with medium to course hair that has natural inclination to frizz. The product can be dried into the hair or air-dried to achieve a smooth result.

Some of our stylists have had the opportunity to play with the Smooth Infusions Nourishing Styling Crème over the last few weeks and here is what they have to say.

“It allows for the hair to feel soft and smooth but not heavy when it is blow-dried into the hair.” Rosemary from Zucci South Melbourne

“It smooths out the cuticle but stills allows me to put volume into the hair. I have used it on my guests with thick hair that is neither curly or straight to smooth out the hair but whilst still having volume at the roots.” Bianca from Zucci Lifestyle Salon at David Jones.

“The texture of the product is so easy to apply to the hair and you can feel it smoothing the cuticle as you work it into wet hair.” Jade from Zucci Ivanhoe

“Smooth Infusions Nourishing Styling Crème can be dried into the hair or the hair can be left to dry naturally. It is a very versatile product that works on fine, medium and course hair textures to achieve smooth feel.” Craig from Zucci Lifestyle Salon at St James Place

“Smooth hair is not straight hair. To smooth the hair out means that the hair can still have bend and movement but each strand is going in the same direction and frizz is minimised. The Smooth Infusions Nourishing Styling Crème allows for movement and bend without flattening the hair.” Kim from Zucci South Melbourne.

The Smooth Infusions Nourishing Styling Crème will be available in all Zucci locations from the 1st of August and retail’s for $49.00.
