Hair Contouring

Hair Contouring is having a moment and we can understand why. A colour service that makes our face look amazeballs with no effort on our part, unless you count sitting in a chair reading gossip magazines as effort.

So to help you get your hair on point for summer, we’ve rounded up five of the best hair salons in Melbourne to get your contour on.

Heading Out

Balwyn North, Camberwell, Fitzroy and Melbourne

One of Australia’s most awarded hair salons, Heading Out’s creative director Caterina Di Biase has been named Australian hairdresser of the year four times, wowsers! From styling the catwalks of the Melbourne Fashion Festival to creating their own award-winning collections, the team at Heading Out know what they’re doing and they do it damn well. You’ll be looking like a 10 errry single day once these guys have worked their contouring magic on you.

Sara Jade


Sara Jade’s philosophy is all about treating yo’self—and that’s something we can certainly get on board with. This hair and beauty salon is the perfect place to go for a bit of pampering and you can guarantee you’ll walk out looking and feeling better than you ever have before. Go crazy and let them contour your hair AND your make-up next time you’ve got something to celebrate.



With over 100 industry awards under their belt, it's no surprise that Rakis on Collins is considered to be one of Melbourne's best hair salons. We've seen client after client walk out of the Collins Street hairdressing salon with envy-inducing hair—all thanks to owner and director Stavros Tavrou and his stellar team.

Fratelle Group

Camberwell and Wheelers Hill

With three salons in Melbourne and three decades of experience, it’s no wonder Fratelle is basically an institution in Melbourne. The team here works together seamlessly to give you the best experience possible from the minute you walk in the door until well after you leave. These guys are contouring pros and will take one look at your face shape and colouring and know what to do!
