For wavy, curly or textured strands that require more than just a basic trim, you want to be sure you’re going to a hairdresser who knows how to handle your hair and is happy to work with it in its natural state. Unfortunately, there are a lot of self-proclaimed curl specialist salons in Melbourne (which usually just means that they’re a bit of an Instagram sensation) whose product-reliant expertise and misinformation only serve to accentuate the frizz and kinks of your strands.
Enter the ‘curlfriends’ of Neel Loves Curls, a boutique salon in the eastern suburbs where curls are truly a team’s passion. The salon specialises in a dry cutting technique called the Deva cut, which caters for each curl and gives a flattering, more manageable shape to the strands while letting go of the drag that pulls them down. Owner Neel Morley is a curl advocate, hosts curl-education seminars and has a devoted following to her ‘curl friends’.
‘Curl Queen’ Danika Pembrook is one of the few hairdressers in Australia that specialises in curls. She stocks curly girl approved products and is a ‘curl educator’, empowering clients to embrace their strands through regular education and routine.
