The Best Curly Hairdressers in Melbourne to Bring Back Your Bounce

Want to revive your natural curl pattern? You'll be putting your locks in good hands by going to any of these curly hair specialists.

Cherry Bomb Hair

The daily struggles of a curly girl can be rough. Unlike our get up, brush and go straight-haired counterparts, curls can be a frustrating whirlwind. Whether our curls will be sitting nicely or be fitting for a bird’s nest is always an anxious question we ask ourselves before we can get in front of a mirror – and more often than not, it’s the latter.

One factor that strongly influences how well your hair sits is the cut you have. And regular hair salons simply don’t quite cut it for us and our curls. No matter how good a hairdresser may be, if they don’t have the knowledge on how to cut curly hair, you’re doing no favours for your curl pattern, and your hair is being cut to then be worn straight. Luckily, we’re blessed to have a number of curly hairdressers in Melbourne. These salons cut with your curl pattern, not against it, using an array of techniques including dry-cutting, individual coil cutting and more.

Want to realise the full potential of your hair? Read on to find out where the best curly hairdressers in Melbourne can be uncovered.

SO Haircutters

SO Haircutters

SO Haircutters is all about embracing your natural curls and working with them rather than against them. And embrace them you will, after placing your trust in the skilful team. Salon owner Phillip Calcagno approaches your hair cut as an experience, rather than simply a haircut. You’ll be greeted with coffee, a sweet treat, and a whole lot of good vibes as your hairdresser analyses your scalp, your curl pattern and your hair type. They’ll educate you about hair maintenance and styling your curls during the cut, so you’ll leave the salon feeling confident enough to do it on your own.
