I've been happy with the results i have got with lucy at cast in sth yarra. Another curly girlfriend of mine has found her old stylist is working at biba academy in fitzroy. She use to work at one of the other biba's but had injured her hand. She oversees the whole process, shows the student how to cut the curls etc. It'll set u back something ridiculous like $15 for the cut! Though do take into consideration it will take longer. Her name is Charlotte from memory.
I have been to the biba academy before, no curl specialist (charlotte wasnt there) my cut was ok, awesome colour (back when i coloured my hair). I had my hair washed 3 times though.. lol!
