Inside the O&M Salon in the Meatpacking District


Australians have a way of seeming effortlessly cool at all times—especially when it comes to their hair. Whether it’s boho chic, beachy waves, or Hollywood Glam (thanks to Aussies Nicole Kidman, Miranda Kerr and Naomi Watts)—the hair really makes the Aussie girl.

Now in New York, you can get that style from the other side of the world at O&M —Original Mineral’s first U.S. salon in the Meatpacking District.

The best part about the salon is where you actually sit to get your hair done. Instead of analyzing your inperfections in the mirror for hours, here you just hang out at a communal table where you can truly just relax. Read magazines, enjoy a drink, or better yet, bring a friend who is also in need of some hair care and catch up.

Janelle Chaplin is the creative force behind the salon as well as the exceptional and all-natural product line. The standout product favorite is the Atonic spray which not only thickens but has the most amazing scent, based off of the Lilly Pilly plant native to Australia. Chaplin doesn’t specify in just cuts, or just color but instead truly understands the way hair works. This salon goes beyond just doing your hair, but gives you a “hair facial” which takes O& M’s unique products and strips hair of all that build up before it is moisturized and nourished.


Looking for a whole new hair “experience,” O&M makes getting your hair done more enjoyable than usual, and you walk out with a perfect ‘do.
