About us 

Lorna Potter first opened her business from her Masterton home in 2001 and subsequently moved the business to a premises in Jackson Street before leasing the current premises in the old Public Trust building. She sold the business in 2020 and after owner Jane Smith took over the lease in October 2021.

When the salon closed in 2021 they saw an opportunity to take over the lease and restore it to its original brand, with Lorna’s blessing.

Come and see us – we will look after you!

The salon is a beautiful, light and relaxing space in a historic character building. Lorna Potter Hair Spa Health is one of very few salons in Masterton that offer both hair and beauty services.

We pride ourselves on helping our clients to come in and instantly feel relaxed and looked after – what Lorna calls “a hug in a cup”. We want you to leave feeling fabulous, relaxed and cared for, and that is reflected in everything we do.
