A private boutique salon in Apollo Bay


From the leaders in green chemistry, OWAY colour system is ammonia, artificial colourant, petrolatum and paraben free. It is free or low in PPD, synthetic frangrances and resorcinol, non-GMO and vegan. OWAY products are rich in organic and biodynamic ingredients. The ultimate in sublime blends of essential oils, phytoproteins and nourishing butters.

OWAY supports global fair trade networks and develops eco sustainable projects including their own OrtOfficina biodynamic farm in the heart of Bologne from which many of the medicinal herbs are grown, harvested and processed on site through pure steam distillation.

Australian made. OmVeda products are formulated using traditional Ayurvedic guidelines that have been used for over 5,000 years. OmVeda uses pure organically grown herbs, flowers, barks, leaves, naturally occuring minerals and oils from seeds, fruit or nuts.

OmVeda Ayurvedic skincare formulations are immensely effective in the actions of cooling, stimulating, nourishing, moisturising, healing, antiseptic, germicidal and antiviral as prescribed.

OmVeda is not tested on animals, is free of chemicals and preservatives and abides by the principle that what is applied to your skin should be good enough to be taken internally.

OLAPLEX is the world leading product in preventing damage and repairing hair. Increasing colour  options without the risk of breakage.

OLAPLEX is free of silicones, sulphates, phthalates, and aldahydes and is never tested on animals.

All Mavala nail polishes, base coats and top coats allow nails to breathe. They contain a resin extracted from wood which adheres to the nail surface in the form of a flexible and resistant film which remains porous, allowing oxygen and water vapour to pass through the nail polish to the nail plate. They are also free from toxic ingredients.

Karina Shircore

My qualifications encompass a Diploma in Natural Therapies – Remedial Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology (1992), a Diploma in Applied Science – Beauty Therapy (1994) and many years as a Senior Hairstylist. Over 25 years in the field of  Hair, Skincare and Natural therapies working in salons with Jurlique, Dermalogica, Ella Bache, Algologie, Napoleon, Redken and Delorenzo and now with Oway Organic, OmVeda Skincare, Olaplex and Mavala Nail Care affords me  a broad knowledge  in Natural Hair, Skin and Body.

I value taking the time to listen carefully to your needs and embrace the variety in what I do. From timeless low maintenance cuts and colours to bright creative  hair colour and dramatic style changes. From remedial massage to efficient detail in waxing, gorgeous facials and pedicures people seem to love!

Dedicated to a healthier salon space Otway Botanicals is a calm, relaxing environment offering a service that is as natural and chemical free as possible. Partnering with companies that create products of the highest quality dedicated to an ethos of minimising the  toxic and allergen causing ingredients that we use on our hair and skin and which go out into our environment.

**Note – I use the term “low toxic chemical ” rather than  “chemical ” as all substance reactions are chemical, even natural ones. This term is intended to be more accurate as ” chemicals” are always used in every salon.
