So who’s your favourite… Hairdresser?

By johnboy - 24 March 2007 33

Continuing our semi-regular (that is to say not regular at all) series of favourite things in Canberra…

One for the ladies (and the more metro blokes we suppose), who do you think is the best hairdresser in town, and why?

What’s Your opinion?

i solved the rip off hair cut problem by doing it myself, pretty easy and not actually as bad as I know you are all thinking!

have to say gianni ciacia is canberra’s best cutter, at his ‘axis’ salon in barry drive. dunno why anyone’d go anywhere else.

must say, it can be devestating when your haircutter leaves you…

Mest in Manuka are great too.

But I second Schmerica’s sentiments – until I moved to Canberra I never realised there could be a 2 week waiting list for the privilege of paying eighty bucks for a haircut.

Ora Hair in Woden: they offer a glass of wine or coffee, the best haircut I have ever had, fantastic prices and great people!

I get my hair cut once every year or two, but I like the Ainslie Hair Inn. Reasonable prices, good cuts.

Cataldo’s. On the expensive side, but definitely not the most expensive in Canberra. They always do a fantastic job on my colour. Mary and Raylene at Woden are lovely.

For a cheap cut though, you can’t beat any of the Just Cuts stores. But you’re definitely getting what you’re paying for (or not paying for :).

Having been ripped off $190(!!!) for a trim and a touch up on my foils at EPIC in Woden the other week, I’m VERY interested in this…

If you don’t want anything too fancy-schmancy, I’ve never had a problem with John Brennan Hair at Belco (the one near Westpac). Something like $35 for a women’s cut.

I get Pat and Guy to cut my hair at Time Hair Gungahlin.

A fair few of the Raiders go there as well so Pat picks up a lot of good gossip.

I also go to The. $90 may seem a lot, but my cuts always grow out well, and I still get compliments twelve weeks later.

Edge at O’connor shops is also very good, Sally is an excellent colourist.

I try not to get my hair cut in Canberra. $80 to cut my hair just isnt juistifiable to me anymore. Ah, the curses of being a female with long hair.

The Hairdressing in the City. They are in that awful downmarket building St James apartments – but don’t let that put you off. Darren is a brilliant hairdresser. And they’re super friendly, no Attitude. Just don’t let them sell you too much product, the cuts are expensive enough already!

strange but the best I have found is Nitesh at belconnen.

adeptacheese 12:32 pm 24 Mar 07

the hairdresser down at jamison shops is awful and snobby, I can tell you that much.

I would’ve thought most of the women who visit this site would just get their mullets done at home.
