Good Hairdressing Salons in Melbourne

Recommended Posts

Guest Mike&Fiona

Can anyone recommend a good hairdressing salon? I have been here since 1st March and the time has come to experience my first aussie haircut :unsure:. I had the same hairdresser back in Scotland for years so would appreciate any recommendations for good salons in the Melbourne. I live in Berwick but don't mind travelling into the city.

 

Thanks

Fiona

Hi Fiona

When we first arrived I tried lots of different hairdressers and wasn't happy with any. I was recommended Hairmoves in Frankston and since then have never looked back, here is the website: hairdressing salon, frankston melbourne australia, hairmoves they don't get back to emails as they are usually so busy so give them a call. I think there is a PIO member who has set up a hairdressing business and I am sure she was in Berwick, can't remember who it was now, sorry.

thanks Kate, I will have a look at the website you have recommended. Far better going to a hairdresser that has been recommended rather than pot luck and pulling a name out of the phone book. Thanks again.

I had been looking for ages for an intercoiffure hairdresser, I'd say you won't go far wrong with these. I couldn't find anyone local through intercoffure though so I went to a local one in Eltham, which thankfully I am happy with.

 

M2M, it may be worth mentioning next time you go they don't appear on the IC website (at least I couldn't see them).

I have no idea what an intercoiffure hairdresser is lol:biglaugh: I know they have their certificates on the wall but it doesn't mean a thing to me. I will mention the website thing though when I am next in.

Thanks

It is a really high standard of not just hairdressing but how they run their business. I have afeeling there are less than 100 IC accredited salons in Oz, it basically means they are good at everything. Stick with them! My UK hairdresser was a member and would beat me with a stick if he knew I was not with one now... oh the shame!:biggrin:

I used to go to Deen from Hairmoves for a long time when he was at another salon in Frankston and he is a good cutter.

Hi Wilco

I have tried all the ones in Cranbourne and a couple in Narre Warren and not had much luck with them to be honest. If you have a car it would be worth trying Hairmoves.

Hi,

I saw your thread on the site and decided to give hairmoves a try after a disaster in Berwick. It was well worth the drive and Deen was fantastic. Thanks! Oh this is Jayne here not Andy, he is still a fan of the good old number one.

Hi

I'm in Healesville and desperately need a hairdresser. My hairdresser in the UK said look around at women's hair there and when you see a cut you like ask the person where they got it cut. Only trouble is just about everyone I look at either has long straight hair or older ladies have a short cut? I don't see anyone that has their hair styled so struggling to find a hairdresser. Hair moves sounds good but thought maybe there must be other decent hairdressers a bit nearer here?

 

Thanks Karen

Hey Everyone

 

When I visit my son who lives in Berwick I have used a hairdresser's called Toma's, they are on the same street which leads down to the train station and opposite the Indian Takeaway (in the old court building)...Also I have used one in Eltham as this is where my friend lives, its the one near that book shop/café just at the back of an arcade..Hope this helps, can recommend both places :)

I cant recommend Kiki Hair Extensions in South Yarra more!
Ive had my hair ruined and went into there and had it transformed in one sitting!

They are amazing with colour but i normally get extensions also :) The staff are always so nice to me and remember me

Call me Mr.Suspicious, but when you sign up to the forum using the following email address: hello@kikihairextensions.com.au it does kind of start the alarm bells ringing 😮

Maybe have a read through:
