About Us

 Shine - setting the scene

Shine is a long established salon and day spa in downtown Timaru, opening in 2003. 

Shine has been under new ownership and management since May 2017. The new team at Shine welcome old and new clients to take a fresh look at Shine and experience some pampering with our skilled, professional  therapists - no matter how large or small the treatment selected from our classic range of beauty and spa treats.

Shine offers a beautiful, unique spa space in a listed historic building in Timaru - The Oxford Building, which was built in 1925. With exterior Art Deco architectural elements and a cross-over of interior styles the Oxford Building holds a few surprises for those that enter.

The Shine interior is a mix of the old and the new, from beautifully detailed plaster ceilings, expansive wooden floors, stunning steel framed windows and two impressive vaults,  juxtaposed with more contemporary interior architectural details and colours in the salon space.

The decor is comprised of an eclectic mix of antique, vintage/retro and contemporary furniture and interior elements combined to give a welcoming and relaxed feel to both the spa and salon - inviting you step into another world, let go of the bustle outside our red doors and to enjoy the special treatment and experience that coming to Shine is.

Access is from George Street (next to the Oxford Restaurant) and there are two options to get to Shine on Level One - either by stairs or lift. The lift is another unique element in the Oxford Building - being the original cage lift from when the building was built. It is also noteworthy that it is the oldest functioning public lift in Timaru. It comes complete with mini chandelier - a more recent touch!

Being on a corner site Shine is bathed in an abundance of beautiful natural light in our reception and salon areas. The mood and feel changes to a more soothing and nurturing space as soon as you enter the stunning hallway which leads to a range of treatment rooms - setting the scene and transition into spaces prepared to provide some blissful pampering and relaxation experiences by our wonderful team of Beauty Therapists.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.

I’m one of those clients who never books until the last minute, is usually in a rush, wants a distinctive style created without fuss in upmarket surroundings and all this from welcoming professionals who are genuinely interested in making me look and feel great. I get all this and more from Shine – a fantastic team with exceptional skills.
