For immediate release
Safety is and has always been a priority for 30 years
Just Cuts salons across New Zealand have always had a number of key measures in place to protect the health of stylists and clients above and beyond the mandated government requirements.
This follows notice today that a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 had visited the Just Cuts St Luke’s salon on 17th September between 3 and 5. See the Ministry of Health Media Release HERE. Auckland Regional Public Health Service advises that they have identified only one other person who was in the salon at the time as a close contact and that they consider “everyone else who was in the salon at the same time..to be only a casual contact of the case; they are therefore at very low risk of catching the disease.”
They also acknowledge the salon’s enhanced cleaning and physical distancing measures. The safety of our stylists and clients is and has always been a priority and in addition to the recommended measures of distancing, additional cleaning, sanitising each styling station, cape and tools before and after each client using hospital-grade sanitiser, and constant use of hand sanitiser, Just Cuts had also introduced the following measures in all salons:
- no coffee or tea
- no magazines
- contactless payment
- floor stickers so that people can easily observe social distancing restricted number of people in each salon with the recommended distance between each styling station
- PPE masks for stylists and clients
While the the Health Service has confirmed all the appropriate hygiene measures were in place, the salon has taken the precautions of a deep clean of the salon. The salon will reopen on 26 September 2020. We thank our clients for their ongoing support.

More about Just Cuts
Just Cuts is an Australian hairdressing franchise that bridges the gap between a barber and a high-end hair salon. With salons in every state of Australia, on both the North and South islands New Zealand and the United Kingdom, it is the largest hairdressing company in the Southern Hemisphere. Based on a fixed price, no appointment system, Just Cuts offers clients affordable haircuts from fully qualified hairdressers and performs over 100,000 Style Cut cuts per week across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Celebrating 30 years in 2020, Just Cuts was the brainchild of Denis McFadden, who turned a simple idea into a business concept that would change the hairdressing industry forever. McFadden ran his first ever “no appointment, $6 Style Cut” promotion at his humble Sydney salon, receiving an outstanding response from clients. It was on this basic fixed price initiative that the idea of Just Cuts was born. The following year, the inaugural Just Cuts salon opened its door to the public. And in 1990, the first Just Cuts franchise opened in the suburb of Engadine, in the south of Sydney, New South Wales. Our brand has continued to expand ever since, with over 220 locations across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
In 2013, Just Cuts launched JUSTICE Professional – a range of salon quality haircare and styling products available exclusively in all our salons at a competitive, affordable price. The JUSTICE Professional line has something for everyone, including everyday shampoos and conditioners, anti-dandruff and dry scalp treatments, toning products, nourishing leave-in treatments and a range of hair styling waxes and sprays.
