Brisbane Hairdressers?

Hi there

Alas! My hairstylist picked up and moved to England last year and I'm still yet to find someone to replace her.

Can anyone recommend a Brisbane based hairdresser (any suburb) who's in tune with curly hair.

I've searched the site but I've only found a couple of outdated recommendations.
3a on an eternal search for the perfectly imperfect curl!

Coarse hair/Low porosity

I have also been doing some research on this and the recommendation I've seen quite a few times is a guy called Gareth at INCH salon in LaTrobe Tce, Paddington. It seems to be around $100 minimum but apparently he's quite willing to do a free chat/consultation before your appointment.

I must stress that I have not been to see him myself, I'm just going by what I've read (so this is where the free consultation will come in handy, you can get a feel for what he's like, make sure he listens etc.), but as soon as I've got the money, I'll be trying him out.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, you know now that you've mentioned him I've seen him recommended on the vogue forums as well. Definately worth considering.

You'll have to let me know how it goes if you do book an appointment with him

jessielee1 Hello from a fellow Brisbane curly . I am still looking for a fully qualified hairdresser here that is completely in tune with my curls!

When I need a non-chemical service done, I go along to one of the student training centres (Meee Hairdressing Adelaide St opposite City Hall, Price Cutters at Lutwyche). I speak with the supervisor/trainer and make it absolutely clear to them exactly what I want done, before anyone is allowed to touch my hair. They know me reasonably well now, so I almost always come away quite happy and with more money in my hip pocket.

Please let me know when you do manage to find a good curly hair stylist. Quality stylists are definitely worth paying good money for. Average ones are not!

All the best.

Can I add the sunshine coast to this hairdresser search too.

I was in price attack today getting my first set of products to become a curly girl and was talking to the stylist in there...I asked her if anyone was familiar with cutting curly hair, they grabbed this one girl from out the back who they said was great with curls..

I mentioned something about a dry cut, getting individual curls chopped... she said.. "what we do is straighten your hair first, then razor cut the ends and it will give you a really great look for your curls...

Hmm...

I politely said thank you and walked out... needless to say I will not be going there to get my hair cut.
Greetings bcde300,

so i trust no one here has yet found a hairdresser yet?? =(bummer!!

im really scared i never get my hair cut and i think its def about time my hair is up to my bum so i want a "style-ish" hair cut.. but i dont know WHERE!!

they usually stuff it up but id like a hair salon where i can keep going and be comfortable, last time i went to cut my hair, she was "pushing" me into thinning my hair for when i straighten it, i told her i dont straighten it anymore and she kind of looked at me like "u dont belong here" and gave me attitude for the rest of the time i was there..

maybe i should do curly training and then ill be a cg hairdresser in brisbane!! we need one!!

If any of you ladies are still looking for a Brisbane based hairdresser, I have an appointment with Gareth at Inch Salon (mentioned above) next Tuesday. I've seen him recommended on a couple of different forums now so hey, why not right?!

I'll let you know how it goes.

They don't have a website I can link you, but this blog review about the salon made me feel warm and fuzzy so fingers crossed it goes well!

Best of luck jessielee1. Let us girls and myself (the guy!) how you get on!!

I had my appointment with Gareth at Inch Salon last night and I would definately recommend him for anyone looking for a hair dresser.

He really took his time before the cut to talk about about my hair, what I want, and what he thought we could/should do.

He cut my hair wet, but then dried it curly so he could see how my hair would lift and what not, then he finished the cut dry, making sure the individual curls sat well. The whole time he was cutting and styling he explained what he was doing and why, so I never felt like he was just winging it.

Another thing that I liked was that he had two apprentices working with him, who were obviously being trained really extensively in cutting and styling curly hair, something I think a lot of salons don't do.

It cost me $100 even, which is a bit pricey, but I walked away feeling incredibly great and from the compliments I received at work today I'd say it was definately worth it.

Really pleased to hear about your good news jessielee1, and will definitely try them in the future. Quite easy for me to get to Paddington. I have an appointment in a City salon tomorrow, so will have to wait until next time around!

All the best,
Matt
I am a Devacurl trained stylist based in Townsville but I go to Brisbane 1 week per month to cut beautiful curly hair. I am at a salon in Toowong. If you would like to book an appointment please text me on 0416125529 - Amanda
