Finding a hairdresser is one of the hardest challenges we face as females. We go through one too many trial and errors than we’d like to admit. Unfortunate yellow tones (ohhh, we’ve all been there) and fried ends – or is that just me? Some of us even have a hairdresser for different services at separate locations – a cutter here and a colourist there, making getting your hair did a total inconvenience. It’s rare that we ever find the perfect hair expert in the one location. Well this year, it’s as if the hair gods finally heard my prayers. They ended my long sobs and sent me to find everything us girls seeking #hairgoals could ever wish for in the one uber stylish and comfortable spot. Yes it’s true… with just a hint of exaggeration (hair gods – what the?).
Centrally located in Budds Beach, one of the Gold Coast’s finest locations, sits a groovy little salon called Follow Hair Studio. Up an old set of stairs (that would have stories to tell) sits a lovely studio complete with Scandinavian style decor (that’s totally Pinterest worthy), divine natural light from the wide windows that overlook the little beach, plus a team of hair styling babes that only dreams are made of.
If you’re blonde, you know the struggle is real when it comes to getting the colour just right. Follow is now known as the place to go for blondes – they literally get the colour on point every time. I repeat… Every. Time. This doesn’t eliminate any other hair colouring skills. Trust us, they’re just as savvy when it comes to you raging redheads and brazen brunettes. And the fab experience doesn’t end there, with cutting and special event styling skills like no other. The team really spend quality time tailoring your style to suit you perfectly.
Another thing I might add, is when it comes to the wash and head massage, you’ll find yourself getting lost in the view of the Surfers Paradise skyline and Budd’s little sandy beach. Heavenly some might say; you’ll be thanking me later.
With treatments galore and a team who really care about your experience, would you believe the services also include Olaplex. You might recall Kimmy K going platinum blonde and her saving grace being Olaplex. This hard-to-find treatment for blondes is what keeps your locks in tiptop condition. You even get a little take home bottle… all part of the service! Treat your blonde strands at home and keep them healthy and free from breakage. Hellomiracle in a bottle; goodbye fried snapped hair.
In a short amount of time, Follow has quickly become the go-to salon on the Gold Coast, so making an appointment in advance is certainly necessary. The team includes: Joelene McAdam – Artistic and Creative Director & Owner, John Dummett – Master Stylist & Owner, Kathy Hogan – Hair and Makeup Artist & Owner,Siobhan McTaggart – Senior Stylist, Tara Ellis – Senior Stylist, Kimberlee Schultz – Junior Stylist, and Karen Mitchell – Salon Coordinator and Reception.
