Christchurch Earthquake.

Wildilocks' presence in New Zealand is approaching a year now, and it's been a crazy busy one with moving our Perth salon in October/November and then running Euchronia in December last year in Melbourne, too! 2011 got off to a crazy start for Australia, with floods, cyclones and the ever-present bushfires, it's been a hard slog for many in Oz over the past couple of months, let alone the rest of the world. New Zealand had been relatively unscathed in comparison: until two days ago. I just want to reassure those of you who may not know New Zealand well, Wellington where we are is a long way from Christchurch, but we have friends down there (and just about everyone in New Zealand seems to know someone in Christchurch) and wish to send all the love we can to the people suffering there right now. This is the first time ever that New Zealand has declared a national state of emergency - yes, it's bad. Very bad.

Wildilocks Major Update, October 2010 - Perth store is MOVING! & this means: a SALE!

Dear Internet,

Wildilocks has been at the fantastic location of 808 Hay St for almost 5 years now. It's been a crazy wild ride and during that time we've had many new staff, and opened two new salons; in Melbourne and just this year, in Wellington, New Zealand. But the time has come to say goodbye to the massive basement which has been the core of Wildilocks for so many years. Our lease is coming to an end, and it's time for a change!

Giveaway: tickets to "Buried" in Perth - follow us on Twitter to win!

Hey folks - we've got lots of very very exciting news coming next week, but to whet your appetite for free stuff (hint hint...!) we've got a great movie ticket giveaway to the movie Buried which opens today Australia-wide. This movie got a whopping 7.1/10 on Rotten Tomatoes.com so it's definitely worth a look, wringing a seemingly impossible amount of gripping drama out of its claustrophobic premise, Buried is a nerve-wracking showcase for Ryan Reynolds' talent.
