Brisbane’s Best Hairdressers | 2015& 2016 Edition

It’s not often that we say this*, so pay attention: Brisbane hairdressers are just the best. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a certain level of stress (read: freaking out/absolutely losing the plot) when it comes time to choosing said Brisbane hairdresser for your regular semiregular once-in-a-blue-moon (let’s be honest) ‘do update. So, we’ve done our usual knight in shining armour thing, and found the BEST of the best Brisbane hairdressers to have your locks loved up real good. Because it’s 2015, and bad haircuts are a thing of the past. *Actually, we say it all the time. But it’s true, so boo to you.


Awards are great—and Revolution has plenty of those—but the proof is in the (hair) pudding. And this pudding is made from haircuts and colours so good you’ll want to shout from the rooftops about them.


Brisbane’s Best Blonde Colourists2013 – 2015

Anyone who’s ever been swayed to the light side by the promise of Scandi-inspired soft golden tresses knows that hair colourists are not created equal. Finding the right hairdresser for your ideal shade of blonde is often a matter of trial and error. And trial and error is not great when the error ends up on top of your face.

We’ve all stumbled out of a hair salon looking more Courtney Love than Carolyn Bessette and vowed never to return. But some of us have been lucky enough to shimmy out of the salon looking like Sienna Miller, or even she of the holy blonde hair grail, Blake Lively.

Because we know that more heads are better than one, we asked you, our loyal, well-groomed readers, who does a great head of light locks. Here are your suggestions for Brisbane’s best blonde colourists.

Revolution is a badly kept secret in The Urban List office, because a salon that offers seriously exponential quality hairdressing for (gasp) reasonable prices was never going to stay small for long. Andre and his team know there’s a big difference between beachy and bleachy.



Just like that perfect shade of red lipstick, a good hairdresser is hard to find. Whether you need a new salon or you want to try a different style, we have you sorted. Here are Brisbane’s best hairdressers.


Join the revolution with a salon that placed in the Australia Hair Brisbane final. Revolution Hairdressing has a great team made up of some of the best stylists and colourists in Brisbane!



Because why risk the health and appearance of your hair in the hands of anyone other than trained and trendy professionals? All we know is that, when it comes to colouring, the best way to treat yo’ self is to trust yo’ salon, and don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our 2015 edition of Brisbane’s best colourists.


We simply couldn’t leave these guys off the list. With decades of high-end industry experience from the likes of Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon and Kevin Murphy, a bevy of national awards including 2014 Queensland Hairdresser of the Year and a finalist position for the Australian Creative Colourist category, as well as an extremely loyal following from many of our lovely Style readers, it’s no wonder we’ve listed them time and time again as one of Brisbane’s best salons. Whether you’re just looking for a touch-up or you’re a colouring virgin, you’ll always be taken care of at Revolution.
