As the temperature starts to drop, seemingly (and much to our dismay) so does our hair. Our sun-kissed summer highlights can't camouflage our split ends for a moment longer, which means that our tresses are in need of a little TLC. If, like us, you lust after shiny hair that feels just as healthy as it looks (sans having to use three different styling tools and seven different products to get there), it might mean that a salon treatment is just what you need.
From taming frizz, rebuilding damaged hair to simply maintaining your luscious mane, a salon treatment can take just minutes and leave you feeling oh-so-much fresher. We’ve searched hair salons in Sydney to bring you the very best hair treatments our city has to offer.

The Treatment To Try: L’Oreal Pro Fiber Treatment
If too many hours in the sun and too much heat styling has left your hair damaged and prone to breakage, this treatment at REVO is for you.

Say sayonara to hair damage as the at-home Pro Fiber shampoos and conditioners continue to rebuild your hair fibres from root to tip.
The Treatment To Try: Olaplex No. 3
Chances are, you’ve heard of Olaplex—it’s that glorious little product that hairdressers the world over simply can’t live out. Yes, that miracle worker that can take brunettes to platinum blonde in just ONE salon appointment. But you might not know that this treatment can be used to rebuild damaged hair—even if you’re not having your hair coloured. Anthony Nader swears by it, so you probably should too.
