The best haircut Ever

By sally123 - 8 June 2011 28

I just had my first haircut experience since moving to Canberra from London and it was with Adam Ciaccia @ Axis Hairdressing.

I have to say that its the best haircut I have had in a decade. Since moving back to Canberra from London I have a struggled to find a cutter that can give me what I need. I read that Adam had spent time at Vidal Sassoon in Los Angeles recently and thought i’d try him seeing as when in London I had my haircut at Vidal Sassoon.

I have to say that it was amazing, His assistant looked after my shampoo and massage. Adam then spoke about what he was about to do and gave me a cut that would be the envy of women in London.

Thanks Adam and I hope my rant sends some people your way as you are an amazing cutter of hair, a true artist.

Ps.. he is cute too

What’s Your opinion?

for the haters go eat 10 ya gronks and for the people who enjoy there hair cut at axis (like myself ) by all means go and enjoy

What does this mean? No, seriously, what does it mean to tell someone “go eat 10?”.

Uhhh…If I’m a hater, I should eat 10 of some unspecified thing, and that will see me sorted? WTF?

And what is a gronk? Is this a new term of abuse that I haven’t run across yet?

And just because I’m annoyed I’ll do something I normally wouldn’t do, and point out that the correct usage is “their hair” not “there hair”.

Jeez.

You’re kidding me…

Jeez PB, you obviously haven’t spent a lot of time on the female haircut scene. Ten years ago my now thankfully ex wife was spending upwards of $200 per shot on her haircuts. Haircuts and other beauty treatments were more important to her than feeding our kids or paying off our mortgage, but that’s another story.

Anyway, $90 for a woman’s haircut is par for the course, if not a little below average.

Winning awards doesn’t mean your a good hairdresser… Me having to wait 4 weeks for my haircut means adam is in high demand which means logically speaking he is good. Call these award winning hairdressers and see how busy they are…. Ps for the record he has won awards too. Google it

uncle gianni cuts the astro household hair – he and adam are excellent craftsmen and have a great salon around them. they train hard and work hard and are both also blessed with great ‘bedside manners’, as it were. cheap at ninety squid, compared to trying to get their quality in london, or sydney or melbourne…

Adam from axis is arguabley one of the best cutters in canberra

Just wondering, has he won any awards for his cutting? That would end any ‘arguments’!

kiko said :

The comments about the service is unfair. I wouldnt ring and ask a resturant what they charge for a main or entree?

I think this analogy is pretty ridiculous. I think almost anyone would want a ballpark idea of what dinner was going to cost whern they went to an expensive restaurant….? I know i’d check the menu online, in the window, or ask a friend before going to one.

kiko said :

…everytime I ahve been there I have had a great experience and yes the salon is pumping open to close.

If it is chockers, I don’t understand the thinly-veiled spruiking of this thread? Besides, looking at the comments a lot of you know he is great, so why do you want to get more people to go there and potentially have to wait longer for an appointment next time you go? Wouldn’t you want to keep him a secret? Anyway, you’re more likely to attract a bigger trend-follower audience (or at least create more hype) if you made him out to be an exclusive ‘secret’, rather than using this approach?

Adam from axis is arguabley one of the best cutters in canberra considering he is only 30 and the other big names in canberra Gianni Ciaccia(his uncle I think) Cataldos and adam noble are all into there 50’s.

The comments about the service is unfair. I wouldnt ring and ask a resturant what they charge for a main or entree? and everytime I ahve been there I have had a great experience and yes the salon is pumping open to close. Im dont think Adam does alot of mens hair? Maybe just cuts would be better for the creative canberran?

Go see Adam, $90 a cut for ladies and you will be happy with the result

My wife cuts mine for free, so I’m saving myself “fifty” plus it gets done when I want it and she doesn’t say “there’s nothing for a while”.
I mean “fifty” for a bloody haircut? Jeez… What is he? Barber Of The Gods?

P.S. She’s a whole lot cuter than this Adam too. She’s also married.

i must say, i get my hair cut from adam also and for the 5 years ive been there i cant complain staff and atmosphere in that salon are trainned professionals and dont just do it for the dollar. the salon has and keeps getting great feed back from around the block, and to creatice canberran be creative and go somewhere else no point dissin a salon after phone call when thats all ur complaining about, even better be creative open up your own and see how u go cheers..

p.s hes married ,though he is cute

I rang up one day politely asking about mens cuts. I’d read some reviews, all agreed that the cut was great, though some said the service wasn’t too good.
Sure enough, woman on the other end sound impatient and rude. Said in a very rude tone “It’s fifty” and “there’s nothing for a while”.

So they charge $20-25 more than other places for a mens cut and are very abrupt and rude on the phone with potential customers. And before someone says they were busy and run off their feet hence the manner, despite a website which mainly pushes their hair care products, they don’t put basic details like prices online? So of course they should expect calls.

+1 for highly recommending Adam Ciaccia and the Axis crew! OP is right on the money, the crew make you feel extremely welcome in your time there, vastly different to other ‘cut and get out’ salons that exist. If you want an amazing hair cut and an amazing experience, go see Adam

How much did the cut and style cost?

“I just had my first haircut experience since moving to Canberra from London …”
and
“..Since moving back to Canberra from London I have a struggled to find a cutter that can give me what I need…”

I’m confused. I’m assuming by your words this awesome haircut was the first haircut since your return to Canberra? And the ‘struggling’ search must have been a series of interviews with hairdressers, without them actually cutting/styling your hair?
If so, I’m impressed with that level of dedication to your hair! What specific thing couldn’t the other hairdressers you interviewed do to ‘give you what you need’? Must be super-complicated?!

Why don’t you marry him if you love him so much.
