Finding the right hairdresser is a tricky business, and especially when your luscious locks are curly, wavy or textured. Folks with tumbling kinks or voluminous waves often spend years barber-hopping or salon-sampling, and endure innumerable smile-through-the-tears moments as new hairdressers ask them how they want their new ‘do to look. Fortunately, there are some salons who specialise in supporting curls, and a few who excel in the art of curly hair cutting.
In the Gippsland region, Trish and Francine from Second Story love curls, and offer a home based salon committed to exceptional hair in a warm, friendly environment. They are the Gippsland Curly Specialists.
Jill at Rebel Curls offers a free hand, curl by curl cutting technique that allows every wavy, ringlet or coil to stay in its natural position. Then, she uses a hydrating service to shape and style your curls for a look that shows off their full glory.
When searching for a stylist to cut your curls, check online reviews and recommendations, and read up on their cutting techniques. It is best to choose a stylist that is experienced with different curl types, and ideally one who is certified by a curl-specific academy. Some stylists may also use multiple curl-specific cutting methods, and combine them for a custom approach to your specific texture. This way, they’ll be able to provide a great haircut, and educate you on how to maintain it at home. Then, your curls will be happy and healthy for days to come.curly hair salon Melbourne
