Why do we always leave booking our hair appointments to the last minute? The words—we’re fully booked—are always followed by an immediate freak out and a promise to adult better, as we look in the mirror trying to convince ourselves that our 80s-esque style is 100% back in vogue. It’s not. And just like shoulder pads, it’s never coming back.
Lucky for you guys we have found the saviours of your tortured locks; those unsung heroes AKA the best late night hairdressers in Sydney. A word to the wise: you’ll still need to adult, but fingers crossed that late nights = more hours to keep your hair on fleek (is that still a thing?).
These are Sydney’s best late night hairdressers #welcome.
