What makes a great hair salon?

Great hair salons know exactly how to flatter your features, leaving you feeing refreshed, revitalised, and renewed. We think the following attributes are worth considering when evaluating your next hair crew:

  • Reputable. In the wide world of hair, a salon is only as good as it’s last client service. Here, a hairdresser’s reputation most certainly matters. Be it the lead stylist, head colourist, or their talent in training, find a salon with a sound name. A little bit of research online will certainly help, along with any recommendations from family and friends. See a cut or colour you like walking by? Don’t be afraid to stop and ask where it is from!
  • Experienced. Great hair styling comes with experience. It is often the fruit of many years of love and labour across the salon floor. And, while you may not require the most senior in the team, all great salons offer experience across the board. These talented teams understand all hair types, and exactly how to flatter one’s features. Moreover, their fabulous support staff leave you feeling pampered from start to end.
  • Technically sound. There are good hair salons, and then there are great ones. Often, a key determinant that separates the best from the rest is technical ability and overall technique. Here great salons can execute it all. From the artistic director and head colourist right through to their junior talent, each offers the highest degree of technical competency.
  • Fashion-forward. A hairstyle, cut, or colour, is as much a part of one’s image as is fashion. And, as the seasons comes and go, so too does what is in – or out in hair. When assessing a salons aptitude, the key theme here is current. Think curtain over asymmetric bangs; highlights over high contrast foils; and eco products over artificial. Great hairdressers embrace the right trends, executing each to perfection.
  • Neat & tidy. All great salons are not only neat and tidy; they are also impeccably hygienic as well. From mindful practises during, between, and after services, they maintain the highest standards of hygiene across the board.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to get my hair cut and coloured?

The cost varies depending on factors like the type of hair you have, the style you're after and what services you want. With colouring, for example, adding foils to your hair will increase the cost. Check to see if your salon offers a free consultation session and ask for a specific quote then.

How do I determine what hairstyle is best for my face shape?

Stylists at quality salons are trained to help you determine the best hairstyle for your face shape. They’ll also consider other factors like the texture of your hair, your personality and your lifestyle.

Which colour will work best for me?

Choosing colour is an art in and of itself and a quality colourist will talk you through options based on factors like your eye colour, skin tone and even the best colour for the season.

What happens if I’m not happy with my cut and colour?

Check the salon’s policy before you visit the salon to see what will happen if you’re not happy with the end result. If the salon did exactly what you asked for, but you don’t like what you see, you may not get a full refund. If the salon didn’t do what they agreed to, you can push for a full refund or ask if the salon will fix your hair for free.

Can I just take a photo from a magazine in and ask for that look?

You can take a photo in, but a quality stylist will give you advice on whether it’s realistic to achieve that look. Sometimes clients (who aren’t experts in cutting and colouring) don’t understand that a certain cut and colour – even though they love it – might not work for their type of hair or the shape of their face.
