BNE’s Best Blonde Hairdressers

BNE’s Best Blonde Hairdressers

From ice queen to blonde bombshell.

By Georgie Murray | 27th August 2020

Do blondes really have more fun? If you’re pondering to make the change and find out for yourself, consider this your instruction manual. Blonde is something you don’t want to do half-hearted. Avoid a brassy disaster and bleach bombshell and do it right! To help, we’ve rounded up the best in the biz in Bris when it comes to creating a beautiful blonde hue. Take your pick!

Helmet Hair Co | Nundah

Helmet’s vibe is a little more out there, yet a little more casual, a little more fun and a lot more rock n roll. When it comes to blonde expertise though, they are super serious. These guys can do anything from colour balances and glosses, to highlights and balayage, or even just a regrowth refresh. One of the things their clients love most is that they take the awkward guesswork about colour costs out of the equation with their simple pricing menu which promises no nasty add-ons. Located in the eclectic suburb of Nundah, this is not your typical Brisbane salon. The second home to Fruition’s Craig Smith, 2019 AHFA Australian Hairdresser of the Year, think of Helmet as its younger, cooler sibling.

From this education, they’ve handpicked the best products in the industry from the brands they trust most including Olaplex, Goldwell, Kevin Murphy and KMS, so when you undergo your new hue, your hair is looked after from the beginning to its ends!
