Maleny’s heart-centred, eco-friendly salon

HOMELY, warm and welcoming are some of the words clients use to describe how they feel when walking into Dot & Birdie, the Maleny-based hair and beauty salon located at 35 Coral Street.

Owner and senior stylist, Kira Fischer, said providing a comfortable, relaxing and nurturing space for her clients to immerse themselves in, while enjoying some self-care and pampering, was an important focus at her heart-centred, eco-friendly salon.

Offering a range of services including hair, beauty and massage, Kira and her team promote eco-friendly practices and, wherever possible, try to choose products that are as environmentally clean as possible while still delivering great results.

The salon has recently taken on a new massage therapist, Akshaya, who uses Ayurvedic knowledge in her massage work.

Feedback from clients about all the services offered, from haircuts, colour and up styles to facials, special occasion makeup and nail pampering, had been fantastic, Kira said.

“I love that moment when a client springs out the door looking and feeling great and telling us how happy they’ve been with our services,” she said.

“That’s what makes what we do so special and I absolutely love bringing that joy to our clients.”

Kira said moving to Maleny with her family nearly four years ago and purchasing the salon last year were the best decisions she had made. She is looking forward to continuing to support locals such as busy mums and retirees, as well as visitors to achieve their self-care goals.

The salon is open Tuesday to Saturday. For more information go to or call
