In the same vein as “restaurants we love or hate” – I’m interested to know which are the highly regarded hairdressers around town (and not).
I’ve patronised The Hairdressing in Civic every six weeks or so for five years and have only had one bum haircut there. They’ve varied from good to great, and always grown out well and looked OK without careful blowdrying (the real test).
The most over-rated hairdresser in Canberra is (was?) the hyped and pretentious Meste in Manuka. A few months after the abovementioned bum cut Meste was recommended to me so I went along. Seriously bad mistake – I was given a sort of wispy lady’s mullet for $100 by the proprietor (who didn’t appear to be a bona fide haircutter) and no hairdresser from Cessnock to Karuah could have given me a more bona fide mullet. And I would have been charged $25 for same. Bad timing, as I had job interviews coming up. It’s hard to face a smart recruitment panel with a mullet.
This is getting expensive – recommendations for alternatives welcome!
