What is a head spa?

While traditional spa treatments may focus on either the face or the body, a head spa is dedicated exclusively to the scalp. 

Originating in Japan, head spas, also known as scalp or hair spas, centre around detoxifying and rebalancing the scalp and hair through a series of stimulating head and neck massages, hair washing, and scalp analysis. 

Head spa treatments not only feel amazing, but they can also help to stimulate hair growth and alleviate a number of inflammatory scalp issues.

Koda Cutters | Queen Victoria Building, Sydney

Located in the heart of Sydney, Koda Cutters salon went viral in early 2023 after launching their now TikTok famous “hair facial” service. 

The five-step treatment promises to transform your locks from dehydrated and brittle to soft and moisturised in just one hour, with the results visible for weeks post-treatment. 

The treatment kicks off the relaxation with a soothing aromatherapy head, neck, and shoulder massage before being transferred over to the basin where your stylist will massage a detoxifying clay mask onto dry hair. 

After your hair has been double shampooed with Koda’s signature Davines range, you will be able to select one of five treatment masks specialised to your specific hair concerns before treating your hair to a steam session in Koda’s TikTok famous steam basin. 

Koda’s luxurious hair facial and dry-off will set you back $100, with full blow-dry styling available as an add-on for an additional cost.
