The best haircut Ever

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.

If you have struggled to get a good cut, Adam Ciaccia is the man.

Ps.. he is cute too

‘…gave me a cut that would be the envy of women in London.’

I think that’s called the cultural fringe.

Extensive research , google,reveals this to be a potentially new saying. Add dicks to the end and the real intention of the correspondent becomes clear.

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.

Same here. [insert joke about Big Dave’s wife here]

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.

…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?

I believe from the article I read in the canberra times this week and the riot-act site itself, Adam Ciaccia has been named as the Winner of the AHFA(australian hair fashion awards) NSW/ACT Hairdresser of the Year for 2012, so that should satisfy your statement ” Has he won any awards”

Its great to have one of Australia’s best hairdressers in Canberra

One doesn’t ALWAYS get what one pays for fgzk. Why not do it yourself?

Back in the day, Id fly to Sydney for hair control, Head Hunter’s, Bondi. $350 with products. You get what you pay for. Thanks for the tip, Ill give Adam a try.

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.

get out of the office every now and then or be creative

So, you’re telling us ‘go eat 10’ = ‘get out of the office every now and then or be creative’?
Wow, I never would have guessed that! 😉
And ‘haters’ is a bit strong. A couple of (older male?) people said they were surprised with the cost, and someone suggested they had poor phone service, but no one could be accused of ‘hate’. How could you hate someone you don’t even know? The only one that seems to be agressive and angry is you. From what I can gather, he’s a really good haircutter. Kudos to him, seriously.

For me, I was simply trying to work out why women would voluntarily tell (potentially) all other women in Canberra where to get the best haricut. I was wondering as: 1) As kiko suggested, their ‘having to wait 4 weeks for my haircut’ waiting time, would then potentially be even longer, and
2) Women are a competitive bunch when it comes to other women, and most of the vain women I know wouldn’t dare want all other women in Canberra to have the best haircut possible, potentially making them then look more ‘average’. That’s all. As I suggested earlier, I thought they’d want to keep such a stylist more of a secret.
Call me negative, but for these reasons I was wondering if the initial post was more an advertising attempt by someone associated with the business and not an actual customer. And given that the businesss is already super-busy, them advertising by such a method didn’t seem to be necessary.
I never really worked that out, but on the positive side, a lot of other people replied with good experiences, so I think it’s all worked out well for Axis, regardless of your ‘go eat 10’ anger!

Now off to do some creative oil painting (out of the office). i.e. ‘go eat 10….’

“Go eat 10” has me puzzled too.

$90 for A HAIRCUT?!?!

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…
