Welcome to Punch

Originally established on High Street Northcote in 2002, Punch Salon has been providing a space for self-expression and relaxation for over 20 years. Currently located in the Melbourne suburb of Preston, we pride ourselves on being a sustainable salon that is full of personality. We exclusively use Delorenzo Hair Care, an Australian-made, high quality and vegan hair care product-range that takes an ethical approach to haircare.  

We are a team of creative and down to earth Stylists with a range of experience and abilities, all operating under the same, simple philosophy; providing great vibes and great hair. We embrace and understand the unique nature of all hair types and strive to connect with clients to deliver maintainable hair that makes you feel your best. 


Punch is proud to be a Sustainable Salon. We work with Sustainable Salons to minimise our salon’s footprint; recycling all of our waste material into new products and keeping it out of our oceans. Proceeds from these recycled products are donated to OzHarvest and KiwiHarvest, charities that provide meals for those in need. A full head of foils converts to a quarter of a meal!
Hair clippings are rescued from the salon floor and converted into Hair Booms which will eventually be used to clean up oil spills along our coastlines. Clippings are also donated to local community gardens where they are used in composting and sustainable art installations.
Our customers’ ponytails of 20cm or longer are repurposed into wigs for those suffering from alopecia or cancer.
