Anyone who has wavy, curly or textured hair knows that finding a salon that really understands the nuances of your luscious locks is not an easy feat. In fact, most of the time you’re left disappointed by a hairdresser who claims to be an expert but still insists on doing a straightening blow-dry on your kinks or a colour correction that doesn’t work with your natural waves and curls.

The good news is, there are a growing number of gina-approved salons in Melbourne that cater specifically to your textured locks. And, the best part is, you can book a curly haircut online in minutes.

Here’s a list of our favourites.
Aoki HairLocated in the eastern suburbs bible belt of beauty, this salon has ‘curl love’ written all over it.

Neel Morley
Founder and owner of this colourful spot on Brunswick Street has a love for all things textured. He’s quick to admit that his own kinks and coils aren’t his strong suit, but his innate passion for empowering ginas has led him to a career as one of Melbourne’s most in-demand textured specialists. His bookings are hotly contested (they open on a month-by-month basis) and clients, or ginafriends as he calls them, could come in looking like Dulux dogs and glide out with a Renaissance painting for a head. hairdresser for curly hair melbourne
