What makes a great haircuts in Sydney? 

A great hairdresser of course!

1. You love it!

Sounds simple but the best haircut is one that you love. Our Sydney hairdressers will listen to what you want, ask you lots of questions that you probably hadn’t thought of, want you to provide pictures so you’re talking the same language and have the guts to tell you if it’s going to work or not!

2. Cut the weight out not the length!

Love your long locks but they’re looking ratty at the ends? Great hairdressers create great haircuts when they can create shape and remove weight without having to cut lots of layers. How many times have you come out of a salon with your hair layered to death? A great hairdresser knows how to achieve the style you’re after without creating an unmanageable mess. The only caveat to this is that if you have lots of split ends and/or heat damage from irons… a great hairdresser will tell you that they need the chop. Read our article about Why Split Ends Need The Chop.

3. The best haircuts looks great from haircut to haircut.

Our hairdressers will tell you how long your hairstyle will look fabulous for. It’s not a ploy to see you more often. You get your bikini and underarm hair taken care of regularly don’t you? A great haircut needs no less attention! So the thing about it is, if our hairdresser tells you that your hairstyle is going to last 6, 8,10 or 12 weeks, you can bet that they’ll be pretty darn accurate. If you leave it longer then you’re likely to do something drastic – like hack at it yourself!

4. A great hairdresser creates great transition hairstyles.

  •  I want it long.
  • I break up with my partner and I get it cut short.
  • I love it short but now I want it long.
  • I want to go short but I’m not sure how I’ll look.

Having styled hair for as long as we have, we’ve think we’ve heard and seen it all. And having styled hair for as long as we have, we know how to do it all. So a great hairdresser can create great hairstyles no matter where you’re headed. We’ve transitioned our clients from short to long, from long to longer and somewhere in between and each and every time – they look great! Whether your thinking of…

Or anything in between…

5. You wear your hair in the style that has been created for you.

Sounds silly but what’s the point of having a hairstyle if you’re forever wearing a headband, ponytail or cap. A great hairdresser is going to create a great hairstyle that you’ll love and find easy to take care of on your own. That doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a ponytail, but a great hairdresser will show you how to make a great hairstyle out of it!

6. A great hairdresser can interpret trends to make them suit you.

Some hairstyles simply won’t work as well with fine hair as they will with thick. Some women can carry off a certain style better than others but a great hairdresser can always interpret a great haircut in a way that suits you to a tee.

7. Can they cut CURLY hair??

Curly hair is so under-represented in advertising and media. And even in most hairdressing shots because the secret is that most hairdressers don’t know how to cut curly hair! Whether you like a wet cut or a curly hair dry cut, we will match you to a stylist who can turn your curls into a crowning glory once again. Read more about curly hair dry cutting on our service page or in this article 5 Tips for Women with Curly Hair.
