Avidity is Australia’s first social enterprise hair salon — all surpluses generated through the salon are reinvested back into training programs for disengaged youth and marginalised members of the inner Melbourne community.
These programs aim to address the agendas of social inclusion, social equity and skills development.
By selecting Avidity to care for your hair, you’ll be helping to develop further programs for Melbourne’s community.
Avidity enables marginalised members of the Port Phillip and Inner Melbourne community to access quality accredited and pre-accredited training, gain skills in hairdressing and make-up, together with real industry experience, the opportunity for lasting employment and a sense of community belonging.
Avidity is a proud initiative of IMVC, and we are committed to developing best-practice initiatives and models to serve the training and development needs of young people and the wider community.
Avidity is a relaxed boutique salon located on Beaconsfield Parade in Albert Park.
With panoramic bay views and housed in a stunning heritage-listed building, the Salon provides an elegant and inspiring experience for customers of all ages.
From special events, weddings, formals, race-day make-up and hair to expert colour care and styling advice – our experienced stylists are dedicated to providing a high level of service and customer care.
Avidity welcomes new clients, and offers a range of services to suit the needs of every individual.
