I’ve been meaning to post some photo’s from the Opening (back at the end of May, shame on me!) of ‘Neel Loves Curls’, a hair salon in Melbourne that is dedicated to curly haired guys and gals! Yeeeew!
I met Neel about 4 years ago when I first moved to Melbourne. I was googling curly hair stylists one day, dreading the search to find a hairdresser that wouldn’t totally butcher my hair as had happened oh so many times before. This search brought up a review for someone who called themselves ‘The Curly Haired Jedi’ and my eyes lit up instantly. Off I nervously went, compulsory hat in bag, ready to hide my hair after my cut as I’d been doing for as long as I can remember.
Turns out google didn’t let me down and that day Neel and I started a friendship/curlship that has led not only to good haircuts, but also to joining forces to spread hints and tips to the curly haired folk of Melbourne at our Eat Pray Curl Laneway Learning class.
Neel recently decided to start his own salon which is dedicated purely to his curly haired clients and his salon is as colourful, energetic and quirky as he is. I don’t want to write too much about the salon here as Neel will kindly be introducing himself and talking more about the salon in my next post – but I did want to share some photo’s from the grand opening so you can see for yourselves what a great space his curly sanctuary is!
