Best hairdresser in Canberra?

By jazz92 - 16 September 2011 52

I recently got a pretty average haircut and don’t particularly want to go back to the hairdresser to get it fixed. Her skills don’t seem to be good enough to be able to fix it.

Any suggestions of a really good hairdresser who would understand what would suit my face shape and hair type?

It doesn’t matter where in Canberra they are located.

What’s Your opinion?

Hasn’t been going to a hairdresser after one in O’Connor Shop closed down…

Mel at Define Hair Design in Hughes, much cheaper than anywhere in the inner north, small salon, owner operator and brilliant cut/colour, my friend who has extreme curls gets brilliant cuts there, and they colour mine from almost black to blonde beautifully!!

Axis Hairdressing – Nuff said

Adam and Gianni are brilliant ! 🙂

I recommend Rebecca at Ora Hair, Woden (next the accountant on the square)

Kiera at Cataldo’s in Civic. I’ve been with her for a few years now and always get complemented on my cuts. Especially if you want a bob or shorter cut – she’s the best!

+1 for Wayne at Fringe

He really knows how to cut hair well and listens to you and takes into account what you want. He also trains his staff well so I think you’d be well placed with anyone there. Wayne can be pretty hard to get an appointment with (and he’s on leave for the next few weeks).

Another +1 for Wayne at Fringe. I have curly hair and not everyone can cut it well. Wayne certainly takes the time to talk to you about what you do with your hair day to day and how you want it. Never had a bad cut from him!

Anton’s in Garema Place. They do a good job and their prices are pretty good, too.

After going to many different hairdressers across Canberra, I now go to Janice at Off London.

The worst ones I’ve been to are Fuse (extremely rude and arrogant staff), and Epic. Epic literally makes up prices on the spot – once you’ve already had it done. They don’t seem to actually have a set price list, and the price they try to charge you is always different to what you were quoted. I’m pretty sure there’s a big thread on the Vogue forums where people are talking about it.

Shi in Kingston. Ask for Tim or Boyd

And you get to play with a complimentary iPad over beer or coffee while you wait/have your hair cut.

+1 for Elvira. I have had two different syles from her recently and both have been great. After almost 4 years of changing hair dressers i think I am going to stay with this one 🙂

Mrs Swaggie and the Swagettes all swear by Studio Altenberg in Tuggeranong, I still can’t work out why women get charged three times as much as guys do for a basic Hair Cut but what do I know – i just pay the guy.

+1 for Fringe.

Wayne is awesome, although these days I go to one of the more junior stylists, Fee. But I would recommend most of the stylists there. 😀

I go to Wayne Robinson at Fringe in Braddon. He talks before cutting, and will tailor your haircut depending on whether you blow-dry, use a straight iron, or use/don’t use product. I’ve been going there for six years and I recommend him wholeheartedly.
