    I went to Wayne at Fabric Hair in ACT and he ignored all my curly girl haircut requests and it took months to get it to sit properly again. He charged a lot of money for it too. I suggest you remove him from your list.

  • Julia Foong

    Nice article. I also have curly hair and know that it’s not easy to find a good hairdresser who can work on this type of hair… every time I go to a hair salon the hairdresser will cut it, and blow it dry because they have no clue how to properly style a curly hair… it’s quite annoying… but I am so glad I found my hair stylist here, in Perth. Pity she is not on the listed salons in WA. Never too late to update, though… :D
