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?

I followed recommendations here and found Wayne Robinson – Now at Fabric at kingston btw…. I went today and am seriously so happy with my haircut. I have curly hair & avoid haircuts because I’m usually disappointed – curly hair is tricky! I totally agree with other comments – Wayne really listens, is very attentive and clearly understands curly hair issues. He took extra time to blow dry my hair really nicely as well (not easy to get right!). 10 out of 10 and big thumbs up for Wayne!

Mel (previously worked at Cataldos, and Urban Hair in Yarralumla), now works at Modern Classic in the city. Does a really good “bob”. Can work magic with people’s hair. Never been unhappy!

I recall someone mentioning on here some time ago, recommending a hairdresser who opened a home salon in Florey and had some good raves… anyone recall this? Looking for contact details.

Adam Ciaccia of Axis Hairdressing has been Won the AHFA NSW/ACT Hairdresser of the Year 2012. From what I have been told he is the first Canberra Hairdresser to win a NSW title. http://www.youtube.com/adamciaccia or http://www.axishair.com.au

I read this entire forum fully expecting to hear glowing reviews of my hairdresser and was surprised not to find any. I go to Nina at Next Hair in Braddon and she’s fabulous. About $95 for a wash, head massage, cut and blow dry. Anyone else had awesome experiences at Next hair?

Although, beware, I’ve had one truly terrible haircut there by a trainee.

next were once upon a time the cool salon, but adam has become ever more a prat in his dotage and – as the last post notes – the place to be now is (and has for some time been) axis: the ciaicia’s have a fabulous name, a brilliant reputation and one well deserved…

I used to go to ‘Seven’ in Braddon.

The hairdresser I had was really nice and always did an awesome cut. The only reason I stopped going was because, given the shortness of my hair I was finding myself going somewhat regularly .. every 4 – 6 weeks.

At first the price was somewhat reasonable for an inner-city salon, though a bit on the pricey side. Then one day, after my 6 week absence I went to get my hair cut again (no colour, just a short cut style that I have done all the time) and when I went to pay, the price had literally jumped $20 .. making the whole thing more than $100 for a simple style cut with no colour .. I never went back. Friendly, great hairdressers are one thing but paying through the nose, and regularly is another.

I now go to Ainslie, the girls are nice and they’re way cheaper.

Rachel who owns “The Strand” at weetangara shops is really good too. She loves her job and has a lot of pride in her work so you can guarantee that you will leave happy..she is also one of the cheaper hairdressers around.
Only bad thing is sometimes it can be hard to get an appointment with her because its only her that works there.

oh oh oh and the shampoo/conditioners she keeps in stock are awesome! cant remember the brand but its some weirdo vegan stuff, its very good. I have really fine curly hair and it can be hard to manage but since ive been using the vegan stuff it has been way healthier.
