For Melbourne’s kinky, wavy or curly haired beauties, there are few things more important than finding a stylist who knows the ins and outs of embracing their locks. With a great cut, the ringlets and waves in your head can be lifted and defined, creating flattering shapes and a sense of fullness that will give you that oh-so-flirty look that makes you stand out.
There are a few salons around town that specialise in working with curls, and some even offer specialised consultations. Pirie Street Hair, for example, have a dedicated curl specialist, Hermiz, who is an expert when it comes to working with a curl’s natural shape and length. He will take the time to assess your curls and will provide you with a detailed plan for maintaining them between cuts.
Known as the ‘Curl Queen’, Elise at Studio Hi Gorgeous is a pro when it comes to tackling curls. Her home based salon is committed to providing its clients with a beautiful, healthy look in a warm and welcoming environment. The team of experts have decades of experience in different hair textures and will help you embrace your curls, whether you have them coloured or not.
Neel is the High Priest of kinks and curls, a devotee who lives, breathes and loves them so much that her Fitzroy salon is like a shrine. He offers Deva-style haircuts, which are a dry cutting technique for curls that pays them their due respect, letting each curl lift and releasing the drag that holds ringlets down. curly hair specialist melbourne
