If you have curls, wavy or textured hair it can be hard to find a stylist who really understands the ins and outs of your mane. Too many salons only support curly hair as a trend, relying on Instagram marketing and product-reliant misinformation. Others, like the team at Joey Scandizzo salon in Melbourne, know how to take a curly head of hair seriously and create flattering, lower-fuss results that you’ll actually be able to maintain.
The stylists at this cosy, home based salon are committed to creating gorgeous afro-textured hair in a warm and friendly environment. They are particularly skilled at colouring locks, and the ’curly queen’, Elise, can colour your locks while still maintaining your gorgeous curls.
Swathed in Aveda aromas, this eastern suburbs salon is a true gem for those with curly tresses. The team are incredibly knowledgeable, ensuring that your strands get the love and attention they deserve, and Danika has a particular focus on curly hair cutting. She’s the kind of stylist who can make even the most stubborn, unruly curls look amazing.
A cult-favourite amongst the Prahran set, Tina’s scissors wizardry is enough to leave your friends clambering for her secret. Tina keeps her name low key (no website or social media) but her word of mouth following is testament to the power of her scissor magic. She’s a fan of regular trims to keep your curls in tip top shape, and she can advise on the best products for keeping them hydrated.curly hairdresser melbourne
