Check out Salon Altenburg at the Hyperdome (well it’s between Hyper-D and the Library) you can book online at http://www.salonaltenburg.com – great for people like me who are all, ‘Hmmm, I don’t know what haircut I want…’ I am SO bad with names, but a nice, young, Yankie bloke helped me so I thought I’d let you all know.

In my quest to find Canberra’s best hairdresser when I moved here a few years ago, I can comment on a number of fellows mentioned in the posts above. Boyd at Shi does a brilliant cutting job, that I wasn’t overly impressed by the girl who coloured my hair. They are also extremely expensive. Adam as Axis does a fantastic job of cutting and colouring hair too – but again, I find $240.00-$260.00 for a cut/colour every six – eight weeks too pricey. Vince at Salon Saraci (Lanyon shops) is more reasonably priced, and just as talented as the more expensive salons – I strongly recommend him. Unfortunately his Tuggers location means that he is branded a ‘suburban hairdresser’, but he could easily be working in one of the more prestigious salons around town. I now go to a hairdresser in Belconnen (even though I live southside), who is brilliant at both cutting and colouring, and charges about half of what the big salons charge (she operates from home) – but she is a woman, and you wanted to see a guy?? If you want her details, let me know.

I’d love to know who this is… must be good if you are willing to travel from Southside to Belconnen for a hair appointment. Am so over all these hairdressers charging a packet for mediocre cuts.

Adam from Axis is an amazing hairdresser. He does a terrific cut each time and the cut holds its style. I have been to heaps of hairdressers and none were as good as Adam. Adam listens to you and gives you the cut that you ask for every time.

Adam at Axis on Barry Drive is a magician!
I had my first appointment with him for a cut in early Decmber and I am amazed at how my hair has kept its shape.

Always a bit sceptical of newbie post that give glowing referals.

But having said that, Adam has cut my hair on occassions (but I’m a guy) and has been taught by one of the best in the business, his uncle Gianni who owns Axis.

Dont be sceptical, these boys can cut hair!!

I have had both Gianni and Adam Cut my hair at various times, Adam is definitely the more creative, who seems to do more up to date styles. Maybe the Master has been passed by the Apprentice. Adam is very well respected as being one of the leading hairdressers in Canberra. A lot of my friends and colleagues see Adam and speak highly of his work, i think its about $80 for shampoo cut and dry. And he is pretty flexible too he squeezes me in all the time!!!

WilllowJim, I think it’s technically known as ‘astroturfing’ – ‘viral marketing’ involves real people actually being genuinely interested.

WillowJim 7:24 pm 12 Jan 10

When I see posts like this on the RiotACT, I can’t help but wonder whether local businesses have clued into using blogs as “viral marketing”.

Paul at the Tradies in Woden +1. Me or the wife won’t go anywhere else. However, he’s always got a full appointment book – you might have to wait a while.

try vince at salon saraci(not sure if that spelling is right) my family has been going to him for years. im pretty sure he came 3rd is some world championship hairdressing thing.
the salon is located near australia post at lanyon market place

Try Paul at the Tradies in Woden. He and his brother Joe ( from the Tradies at Dickson) used to own a salon in Warramanga. They are both amazing male hairdressers for women. I have been going to Joe/Paul for the last 13 years.

Havent been there in a few years but the little hairdresser where Aldi is in Tuggers used to be good… cheap to.

Otherwise venture from the Southside and see Adam at Axis in the City.
