If you’re blessed with curly hair, chances are you’ve had every second person you meet swoon over your ringlets and ask if they can touch them. You’re also probably well aware of how difficult it can be to find a good hairdresser who knows how to tame your mane.
You might not have the luxury of being able to cut in bangs or a blunt fringe at the drop of a hat, but we’ve found some of Brisbane’s best curly hairdressers for curly hair who promise to keep your locks stylish and looking fresh 24/7.
PURELY CURLS | PADDINGTON
As Queensland’s first and only dedicated curls-only salon, the team at Purely Curls know a thing or two about curls, from swavy to super curly. With no education on curly hair in Australia, Amanda, owner of Purely Curls, travels to the USA every year for advanced education with Curly Hair Artistry and is a Devacurl Inspired Advanced Stylist. Amanda cuts dry, curl by curl to see exactly where the curl sits in its natural fall. At Purely Curls we provide our guests with the techniques and tools on how to cleanse, hydrate, style and maintain their natural curls using 100% Organic and toxin-free products. To complement your colour, Amanda hand paints selected individual curls for that personalised look.
LUNATIC FRINGE | CLAYFIELD
There is no question that guys and girls with curls can face a few issues when living in Queensland. Not only is our weather humid in summer, which can send your hair into frizz city, but there is also a massive shortage of hairdressers who understand how to cut curls. Lunatic Fringe refers to themselves as Curl Engineers as they have perfected their very own ‘shrink-proof cutting technique’ and curl styling tuition for those with loose waves or spiral curls. No two curls are the same and the curly hairdressers at Lunatic Fringe will cut, shape and treat your hair so you can embrace your natural curl every day.
BLACK AVENUE | CLAYFIELD
The team at Black Avenue have their finger on the pulse when it comes to on-trend style and colour, but for the guys and girls with curly hair, creative director Shannon JJ Williams and Co-owner MJ Portenski are the go-to curly hairdressers at Black Ave. Both MJ and Shannon understand the importance of treating curly hair with extra care and cutting with a particular style that can transform your face.

There’s no denying that everyone hates frizzy and unruly curls, and leading experts agree that the ultimate way to make your curls as beautiful as they can be is to keep them hydrated and healthy. At Fluid The Colour Salon, they know how to make any hair colour (in any texture!) pop. When people with curly hair look to change up the colour of their hair, it’s important to find a colourist that understands your natural curl. At Fluid, the team will discuss with your everyday hair routine with you and how they can highlight and enhance your colour to suit your natural curl and style. To ensure your locks are given optimal care they only use the best products, including Number 4 L’eau De Mare Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, Lumiere D’hiver Essential Leave in Super Comb Prep & Protect, and Jour D’automne Styling Texture Creme. The result is perfectly defined, soft, and bouncy curls.
