Where to get the best blonde hair in Sydney.
Let me just say, us blondes really DO have more fun.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been ridiculously fussy when it comes to my hair. When it was long, I would barely let anyone touch it because I was so paranoid they’d ruin it. I absolutely love being blonde, but with that comes loads of maintenance and it can be arather costly expedition.
When I moved back to Sydney a couple of years ago, I really struggled to find a hairdresser I really loved. They were either too expensive, didn’t nail the colour or have the right ambience in their salon. Don’t get me wrong; there are LOADS of talented salons and hairdressers out there that are seriously incredible. There are very few that can nail their blondes each and every time, and that is why I’m so excited to introduce you all to Hair Den.
These guys are the reason why I’m more than happy to drive over an hour to see them, because they seriously know their blondes. I’m always hesitant to trust a new hairdresser, and with Hair Den I was no different. The only reason I found them is because I worked with a beautiful girl (Hi Lauren!) who always had impeccable hair. It was always extremely shiny and healthy, and her blonde never faded.
When I asked her who did it, she happily referred me to Hair Den and told me it was “her little secret”. Just a big secret that I now feel like I have to share with you ALL because I’m seriously so obsessed with them.
Never have I been somewhere that is so concerned with the end colour, that nearly the entire staff have a team discussion about it. When you walk into Hair Den, you’re walking into a salon full of intelligent, experienced and passionate hairdressers. They know hair better than anyone else, and oh boy, they are truly the blonde specialists.
As mentioned, I may possibly be the fussiest person on earth when it comes to blonde hair. I’m forever on a quest to find the ‘perfect’ shade of blonde, and the hilarious thing is I don’t actually know what that is. Sometimes I envision a beautiful ashy, dark blonde, and other times all I can imagine is a pearly, almost white head of blonde hair. IF ever there were a difficult customer, it would be me.
I change my mind constantly, never really know what I want and rely heavily on my hairdresser for their artistic eye. When I first started going to Hair Den, I was so lucky to be paired with the talented Bec. If ever there was a total blonde specialist, it would be Bec. Firstly, she has blonde hair herself (CHECK!) and secondly she is a total pro.
The above before/after photo was taken today, and I couldn't be more happy. This was a full head of foils, toner, treatment, cut and blowdry. I still can't believe how they managed to bring out all that brassy yellowness of my hair!
They’re seriously the blonde specialists in Sydney, and I don’t know what I’m going to do in London! Thank you Hair Den for being absolute legends, and I hope to see you again. For anyone that has been uhming and ahhing about where to go, I personally can’t recommend Hair Den in Marrickville more!
