There’s a lot to be said for finding a hairdresser who understands the way your curls move, flow and fall. But not every salon in Melbourne is equal when it comes to caring for curly hair. There are some red flags to look out for – for example, a salon that claims to be a curly specialist yet promotes chemical straightening or extensions, and only offers product-reliant CGM results – as opposed to providing knowledge and outcomes that support your specific hair texture, challenges and lifestyle preferences.
The best curly hairdresser melbourne will listen to your unique needs, assess your curl pattern and recommend the best cut for you. They will also teach you how to care for your curls in between visits and help you discover what products are the best fit.
A cult-followed, Sydney trained hairdresser and educator, Rita Semedo loves working with all types of curly hair. She works with dry cutting (a technique that focuses on precision, not volume) and specialises in the Deva haircut, an approach that aims to honour and work with your natural shape, rather than impose it. She also stocks curly girl-approved Everescents and Jessicurl products to keep your curls happy at home. She is a total curl whisperer, and her clients (or ‘curlfriends’ as she likes to call them) swear by her skills, professionalism and expertise. Make sure to book a hair appointment with her at Pirie Street Hair. You’ll be left with a stunning new cut and more confidence in your wavy or curly locks than you might have thought possible. best curly hairdresser melbourne
