Since when was finding a good hairdresser so hard? Brisbane seems to have a hairdresser located on every corner of every street, which can sometimes be a pleasant surprise.... but sometimes be your WORST nightmare. Since I moved to the Northside of Brisbane, I have definitely had my fair share of hairdressers. Local, expensive, convenient and everything in between. For years, all I have searched for was a hairdresser that would just tick the simple boxes - friendly, chatty, good location, well priced, and would just give me that summer fresh feeling all year round.
Lucky for word of mouth, Winnston hair crossed my radar. Hiding down the sneaky Winn Lane in Fortitude Valley, surrounded by cute pop up coffee stores, plant shops, heaps of greenery and gorgeous hanging lights, there is the wonderful Winnston hair salon. Opening the doors to a small, yet stunning salon, covered by beautiful black & white photos and pot plants everywhere (Can you start to image what I am talking about).
The beautiful Monica welcomed me with open arms, with her stunning and warm smile & zymil cappuccino ready for me. We sat down and went through all my options (and she actually listens). Monica is a blonde specialist and master cutter, with years of experience to show. We transformed my hair... which was a little bit on the orange/yellow side of life, into a dreamy, colour corrected summer glow.
I left the salon nearly in tears, but these were happy tears. Now, I am not vein or care too much about my appearance, but this feeling was
incredible. I finally felt summer ready.
*Oh side note, the gorgeous Kiyomi from @_thebrowbakery is also within this salon. Leave with beautiful hair and beautiful brows. The queen of brows will not only fix your messy sisters and send you home happy, but she will teach you how to achieve these amazing results every day at home. Do I need to say more?
