Sourcing a new, dependable hairdresser can often be a timely—and costly—process of trial and error. From botched cuts to colour mishaps and flat blowouts, there’s no worse feeling than the disappointment of a bad haircut.
It’s also no help that there are more hairdressers in Sydney than we could ever count; however, the team at marie claire has made finding the ideal hair artist a whole lot easier.
These are the Sydney hairdressers who we can guarantee that you’ll find yourself booking in to again and again.

If you’re dreaming of a Matilda Djerf-esque blow out then look no further than the Blow Bar Co. Conveniently located in the CBD with additional salons in Bronte, Balmain and Coogee, the Blow Bar Co is renowned for their beautiful, bouncy blowouts. With in store services like champagne, cheese platters and massages, there’s no better place to start your night out.
RAW by Anthony Nader
RAW’s Anthony Nader has worked his magic on the likes of Gisele Bündchen, Nicole Richie and Miranda Kerr, and for good reason. He’s been ranked as one of the best colourists in Sydney, and his namesake salon is one of the most renowned luxe hair haunts in Sydney.
Edwards & Co. Surry Hills
As one of Sydney’s most acclaimed hair studios, the team at Edwards & Co. can tailor your hair to literally however you want it. We love all of the salon’s locations but particularly love the Surry Hills salon, with its exposed-brick, mirror selfie-friendly design.
