My gorgeous 10 girl just had her first amazing hair cut! She has beautiful curly hair and until today we never really new how to look after it. The amazing Neel met us for the first time and we were a little nervous. Neel spent a good 20 minutes explaining options and how he was going to cut her her. Seriously a good hair cut on a 10 yo who has always struggled with her hair is life changing! Her smile and confidence says it all. Thank you Neel for your patience understanding and most importantly skill! See you in 3 months.
What a journey Neel has taken me on. It started about a year ago when Neel stopped me on the street as I left a restaurant. He told me that he specialises in cutting curly hair and if I was ever interested in a hair stylist, I should give him a call. Fast forward to about a month ago. I had my 3b curls in braids as I was fed up with my hair and wanted to shave it off, but my scalp started hurting so I finally contacted Neel. I was very nervous, but he was great. He didn't make me feel silly or uncomfortable. He told me to moisturise my hair and sold me the curly girl handbook. Both have changed my life and my whole outlook on my hair, how to take care of it and how to take care of the hair of my three curly haired children. Throughout my moisturising time, Neel emailed me helpful links to websites that he felt I may benefit from and checked up on me. When has a stylist ever done that for you?! I finally had my haircut with Neel last week. He spoke to me throughout the appointment, constantly showing me how he was cutting my hair. He gave me confidence and actually made me feel, for the first time in my 38 years, that my hair is actually beautiful. I would definitely encourage anyone who's looking for a hair stylist that actually knows what he's talking about, is caring and confident to see Neel. Even if you're unsure about what you want, Neel can help guide you through the process. Go see him. You will never regret it!
Neel is truly Melbourne's curly hair king! He cut my hair for the first time a few weeks back after I discovered him via his blog, neellovescurls.blogspot.com.au. How refreshing to meet a hairdresser who is so genuinely passionate about curly hair. I have had some terrible haircuts in my time and am sick of walking out of salons with my hair looking nothing like I had hoped for - so I was a little apprehensive about trying a new stylist. I needn't have been. Neel listened, gave so much advice, didn't try and flog me product and handled each of my curls like they were made of glass. Since my cut my hair has been amazing - so soft and shiny, and sitting beautifully. Thank you Neel - you are a miracle worker!
I met Neel 4 years ago when he introduced me to the 'dry cut'...and I've been going to him for haircuts and advice ever since then! Neel is a brilliant hair stylist who really understands and is very passionate about how to cut curly hair! Neel is a brilliant person too...he is forever learning new techniques and ways of cutting and styling curls which is very comforting to know in a hairdresser. If you have curly hair you MUST see Neel!!!!!
I came to Melbourne 2 months ago and was so scared I had to start all over again to find a good hairdresser to treat my curls.... And I am so happy that I've found Neel!!! He's the best ever! He actually LISTEN to what you say, understands no brushing, has great tips, is so professional, and lovely!! He really understand what he's doing! You girls migt want to check his blog to see how he wroks http://neellovescurls.blogspot.com.au (I'm also a lucky one who's there too :]]]) I left the salon with the best curls ever! I really recommend Cherry Bomb! 5 stars!
I came to live in MElbourne 2 months ago, from overseas and was really scared when I had to start all over to find a good hairdresser.... But when I found Neel I was so happy...! He is so lovely! He actually LISTEN what you say, and REALLY knows what he's doing! He was so careful with my curls, just like I am! He gave me great tips, understands no brushing, and is very professional! You girls, might want to check his blog, which has great tips, and you can see his work: (and I am also a lucky one who's there too :]]) http://neellovescurls.blogspot.com.au I left the salon having the best curls ever! 5 stars! And I'll be definitely back again! Cheers!
Oh my goodness, Neel was just absolutely incredible! For any curly-haired girls in Aus, this is the perfect place. I am a young girl, but have had my fair share of horrific hair cuts, and had not been to the hairdresser in ages due to fear. However, not only does Neel know curls, he cuts dry to ensure he gets the right shape, talks you through his process and is super friendly. I will honestly go where ever he goes. -Bianca
I'm an American on exchange in Melbourne, Australia- and when I found out about Neel and his passion for cutting curly hair I knew I had to find him and I'm so glad I did! I'm usually very cautious about haircuts, but when I saw his blog, http://neellovescurls.blogspot.com.au/, I saw his portfolio of before and afters and knew I would be in good hands. It was such a relaxed experience and he completely listened to what I wanted out of my haircut. He absolutely brought out "the best version of my hair!"
I had my hair done by Neel about a month ago and I have waited to do a review to see how it goes! For the first time in 6 + years I havent left a salon stressing about on how on earth I was going to redo my hair! Not only was Neel the only hairdresser I have been to that knew how to cut curls properly but he also took the time to sit down and speak to me without sissors in his hands. I was recommended products and it wasnt the usual sales pitch (the products that he recommended werent even sold in the salon) and most importantly taught me how to style my hair! I can honetly say I now have the best curls I have ever had!
Just got home from the most amazing haircut ever!!! Neel thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and passion for curly hair. This is most definitely the first time I have ever walked out of a hair salon actually loving the results! No combs, no thinning scissors, no razors in sights. I am loving the colour, the shine and softness of my curls. Neel is the man for all you curly haired girls and boys out there in Victoria!!
What an amazing individual! I couldn't believe how fantastic my experience was at Cherry Bomb. It was my first hair cut ever, and I couldn't have picked a better person to handle my hair. Neel was both attentive and genuinely interested in getting the best out of my hair. The results really speak for themselves. Thank you so much, Neel! You're one in a million <3. http://i919.photobucket.com/albums/ad39/ladynove/Photoon2012-01-07at1708.jpg
I have naturally kinky curly hair and would highly recommend Neel. After reading all the reviews on this site, I made an appointment with him and can confirm that he truly is a curly hair guru. He did an amazing job, cutting my hair when it was dry and used his hands to style my hair. There was no brush or comb in sight to cause frizz and I have never seen my curls look so good! After years of having my hair chemically straightened, stressed out and badly cut by stylists who had no idea how to handle curly hair, this is the first time I have left a hair salon feeling terrific and proud of my curls.
