Please raise a glass for all the stylists out there taking care of our brown locks.
Brown might be the most common hair colour on the spectrum, but I like to think brunettes are no less beautiful than their blonde and red-haired counterparts. Whether your tresses are rich chocolate, warm mahogany, dusty ash, golden espresso, deep chestnut, or sweet mousey, there’s a host of hair salons in Brisbane that know how to work your locks and create the ultimate hairstyle. Here’s our list of Brisbane’s best salons for brunettes.
Kelly Elle Salon | Greenslopes
There’s really no one who understands the intricacies of hair colour and colouring techniques as well as Kelly Elle. Using the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger hair care and colouring range, Kelly Elle is a savant of hair trends, ensuring each client leaves her salon with a style and colour they love. Leading into the cooler months, Kelly Elle Salon is introducing their clients to the delicate effect of hair contouring – a bespoke colouring technique which softly blends various shades for a natural, dimensional look. Similar to make-up contouring, hair contouring uses light and dark shades to highlight features and create shape and dimensions. The hand-painting technique creates depth and visual interest, and can help hair look fuller and healthier. As well as personalising the hair-contouring process for each client, Kelly Elle and her team of stylists create a personal hair-care plan to ensure a long-lasting look. For a dimensional colour that adds depth and volume, hair contouring is the ultimate colouring trend for brunettes this winter.
Indigo Cut & Colour | Camp Hill & Wishart
With a season change on the horizon, a hair colour update should definitely be on the cards. While warmer temps see many opt to lighten their locks, Maria Demos of Indigo Cut & Colour suggests on going to the opposite side of the spectrum with popular colours such as sun-kissed biscuit brown, latte, and chocolate brown. Whether you’re rocking long silky locks or ready to chop an on-trend bob, the Indigo team uses HD Resolution by Redken to achieve amazing high definition shine that makes every cut and colour look polished and fresh.
Tigerlamb | Various Locations
Tigerlamb is a bit of a favourite of ours, and for very good reasons. With multiple salons across Brisbane (including a new King Street salon opening soon!) they still manage to maintain the intimate, personalised service you desire. Having styled for prestigious fashion events such as New York Fashion Week, Sydney Fashion Week and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival, this multi-award winning team is seriously slaying. Add some warmth to your look this winter with multi-tone colour and soft baby-lights.
Horse Meat Disco | Stones Corner
There’s a reason why this quirky-cool salon consistently rates as one of Brisbane’s best salons. The Horse Meat Disco team of colourists is dedicated to using the best possible products (Wella, System Professional, Sally Hershberger 24K, Sebastian, Olaplex) for healthy, shiny hair. They are a Brisbane fave for dimensional colour and rich tones.
Papas + Pace | Brisbane City
Papas + Pace use in-house training to ensure their stylists are up to the standard you would expect of a salon that’s earned many awards. Why should you trust them with your tresses? Co-founder Justin Pace is one of Australia’s most highly awarded colourists, with a résumé to prove it (seriously, their work has graced countless runways). This should be your first stop for avant-garde hair.
House of Zion | Milton
Boasting a loyal following of models and the like, House of Zion is a salon that stays ahead of the trends to create a look that is contemporary and fresh. This is the team to speak to for hair that is as rich as milk chocolate and as soft as silk – be prepared for everyone to ask “where did you get your hair done?!”.
Alexander Woulfe Hair and Beauty | Tingalpa, Hawthorne
When it comes to colour, the ladies at Alexander Woulfe believe “anything is possible” and will find the solution you need to achieve your ultimate #hairgoals. Whether it’s colour correction, pastel pink, overgrown roots or a dimensional tone, your dream hair is never far away. We are obsessed with this subtle coppery-brunette transformation.
Toni & Guy | Brisbane CBD
Of course it’s no surprise to see Toni & Guy on this list, but we are particularly excited about the Brisbane CBD salon because senior technician Shanais is doing some amazing things with colour. From big, bold changes to pastel colours, Toni & Guy are at the forefront of new hair-colouring techniques such as colour contouring – artful colouring that can bring out your natural features for a look that will turn heads. Because who said brunettes were boring?
Kenneths of New Farm | New Farm
Kenneths might be a young salon, but their stylists share more than 30 years of experience between them and will ensure your experience is luxurious and decadent. You’ll leave with gorgeous hair, styled with the amazing Lamke colour correction and EVO haircare ranges, that you won’t want any other stylist to ever touch again. Discover first-hand why the likes of The Bachelor’s Snezana Markoski and Brisbane model Natalia Lampante choose to get their hair done here!
Revolution Hair | Teneriffe
To say this salon is multi-award winning is a massive understatement. Revolution Hair has over 40 awards to their name spanning the last 14 years. With the talented team having worked multiple fashion shows and had their work showcased in magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, you can rest assured that your locks will be well looked after. Balayage, ombre or all over colour, your brunette locks will be glossy and glowing from root to tip with the addition of Cureplex bond strengthener to colour services so your hair remains dazzling and not damaged. The personalised colour service ensures your new hue will flatter your skin tone and eye colour so you’re sure to turn heads upon leaving the salon.
