Introducing the Coast’s top 10 hairdressers according to Metropolist readers:
Trendz Studio | Bundall
Romping home as one of your clear faves, while already well-established in Brisbane, Trendz’s new Gold Coast-based studio has been open under a year, but has already won your hearts. The talented team here are colour and style masters; plus, if you’ve ever suffered a hair disaster, they’ve also been known to work miracles saving many damaged locks. Hurrah!
Paul & Paul Salon | Southport
There’s something that simply commands respect of gifted male hairdressers in a female-dominated industry; for instance, Paul Philip and Paul James who are the scissorhands behind their self-titled Southport salon, Paul & Paul. Internationally trained, both Paul’s resumes are impressive to say the least, and together with their carefully curated team, you can be absolutely confident your hair will be in capable hands.
B&B Hair Salon | Broadbeach
Pulling in a truckload of votes from their passionate clientele was B&B (aka Bird & Boulogne) Hair Salon. Award-winning husband and wife duo, Quentin and Joanne, along with their crafty team, always nail the dreamy balayage look with a tousled finish, and can help you out if you’ve been admiring the very on-trend pretty pastels style.
Follow Hair | Budds Beach (now Edward & Co.)
Conveniently located above Bumbles Cafe (perfect for showing off your do post-chop), this gorgeous salon is home to one of the best hairdressers on the Gold Coast (as voted by you!). So spesh in fact, that local Hollywood A-lister herself, Margot Robbie slipped into Follow Hair for a spruce up a few months back. Oh la la!
La Sorella | Robina
Some serious Gold Coast babes have been spotted departing La Sorella, looking particularly smokin’ after receiving the royal hair treatment. Exceptionally fab with colour (blondies, this gem is just what you’ve been searching for), it’s little wonder you chose this Robina salon as one of your faves.
Neon Hair & Beauty | Southport
Northerners voted feverously for their local hotspot, Neon Hair & Beauty. We reckon it’s got something to do with their endless talents with colouring and long locks, or their breezy light-drenched studio. But also ‘cause this one-stop beauty workshop are master crafters of brows, lashes, make-up artistry, and hair extensions. Are you the daring type? Let the team at Neon get adventurous with an edgy style cut on Tuesdays only, for a tiny $40 (or creative colours for $80). Sassy!

Do or Dye Hair Creations are a clear favourite among Metropolist readers. Hand-painted balayage is their specialty, as well as innovative cuts, lust-worthy up dos, and super friendly service from their tight-knit team, led by the lovely Amber. If you’re searching for one of the best hairdressers on the Gold Coast, put Do or Dye Hair Creations on your short list.
Loveloxx Hair and Extensions | Mermaid Beach
These gals go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and at home, so it’s little surprise Loveloxx made the chop (pardon the pun) among the best hairdressers on the Gold Coast. But most importantly, they deliver stunning cuts, colours, and extensions every damn time. And consistency is key, ‘cause there’s no room in life for an inferior hairdressing service.
Minogue Hairdressing | Varsity Lakes + Reedy Creek
So popular they service two locations, Minogue Hairdressing are mane management kings who take the stress out of caring for your tresses. There’s no denying Metropolist readers love this talented team of colourists and stylists who’ll have you bouncing out of the salon with hair that’s to die for.
