Looking to get your hair did in Melbourne?
What a coincidence—we’ve cherry-picked the city’s best spots for your perusal, and curated it just in time for you to book in for a pre-Spring revamp (we’ve got warmer weather of the brain).
EDWARDS & CO
One of Sydney’s most celebrated hair stylists, Jaye Edwards, and his specialist team have expanded to Melbourne CBD. With a client base that’s growing faster than hair after a trim, Edwards and Co. is quickly becoming one of the city’s most popular destinations for a cut, colour, blow dry & style. Oh, they do nails too. With the clientele like Zoë Foster-Blake and Lara Bingle, the salon is well spoken for. Housed within an open studio with exposed brick and whitewashed walls, vibrant artworks and teal blue swings hung form the ceiling, this double-storey space is both playful and chic, exactly like cut you’ll get here.
The eponymous salon of creative director and multi-award-winning hair stylist and colourist, Marie Uva, is responsible for the enviable manes of several high profile Australian women, including Jennifer Hawkins, Rebecca Judd and Nadia Bartel. Narrow with high ceilings, dark timber floorboards, and plenty of mirrors, the boutique hair salon feels both luxe and homey. It’s hard not to be inspired by the passion of the UVA salon team, who are all highly-skilled at every aspect of their craft. We dare you not to fall asleep during that divine head massage.
One of Oscar Oscar’s renowned Melbourne salons, OO Chadstone is one to have on your radar (if it’s not already firmly cemented there). Whether you’re in need of a major ‘do update or a pre-event spruce, consider this your new go-to salon at Melbourne’s Fashion Capital — the talented team here are not only leading experts when it comes to all things cut and colour, but are also serious styling gurus — you simply can’t beat their signature blow wave, which will give you the soft, cool-girl waves of your dreams.
If it’s convenience you’re after, we’d like to introduce you to Frank Provost in Melbourne’s CBD. The ultra-chic Melbourne flagship salon is located inside the Emporium shopping mall, making parking a breeze. Of course, there’s a lot more to Frank Provost than just convenience. The brand – founded by Frank Provost himself – began in France but has now expanded to Tokyo, Madrid, Shanghai and beyond. In 2019, the Frank Provost name is synonymous with effortless Parisian style. Here, the highly-skilled team will ensure you walk out the door looking perfectly polished with that certain French je ne sais quoi.
JOEY SCANDIZZO SALON
For anyone wanting to enact the modern mantra: “treat yourself”, go here. This luxurious salon specialises in top quality pampering and service. Also go here if you want a cut that’s effortlessly cool and fashion forward – but personalised, and likely to get you compliments for days. The salon’s namesake is Joey Scandizzo, Australian Hairdresser of the Year in 2018 and one of the creative directors of ELEVEN haircare, which is stocked and used in the salon. Scandizzo is a big name in the hairdressing and fashion industry, and his certified A-team, led by equally talented brother John Scandizzo, has previously won Salon Team of the Year.
