Adore my hair and the people at maiden hair, they’re friendly, knowledgeable and informative. I went in for a hair care lesson, cut, and wash. They really discuss what cut you want before cutting and give heaps of information about your hair type before doing anything. Would highly recommend!

Do you only work with curly hair?

Absolutely not! At Maiden Hair Salon, we specialise in cutting, colouring and styling ALL types of hair. We certainly have a love of curls, and expertise in textured hair, however we welcome all types of hair, straight, wavy, coily and everything in between!

Can I wash my hair after a colour service?

You can, (although we’re not sure why you would want to) however it’s recommended not to wash your hair for 32 – 48 hours after having it coloured. This allows the hair cuticles more time to seal in the colour, preventing it from bleeding out or washing out too quickly.

Should I wash my hair before I do a colour treatment?

Yes, clean hair allows products to perform better. Hair build-up doesn’t allow products to perform at its 100%.

How do I prepare my hair for a cut or curl appointment?

Freshly washed hair is best and left to naturally dry. This way we can see exactly how the hair likes to fall, curl and sit naturally.

What happens if I am late for my appointment?

We are a very busy salon, so unfortunately, if you are running late you may only be able to have part of your service done, but possibly not. You will however be charged for the full service, as that was what you booked for. It’s always good to call the salon if you are running late to an appointment.

Do you have Early Appointments or Late Appointments?

We offer late appointments on Tuesday evenings to accommodate those who work until 5pm. You can check our opening hours on the website.

How early should I arrive at my appointment?

We recommend arriving 10 minutes before your appointment.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

If you change your mind and decide to cancel your appointment, please allow 24 hours or a cancellation fee may apply.

Can I bring my children along?

Of course! We welcome families at Maiden Hair Salon. We just ask that you consider the comfort of all our clients. If your little ones can hang tight and be respectful of the space, they’re more than welcome to join you. Thanks for understanding!

Do you take online bookings only?

Bookings through our online booking platform are super easy, however, if you would rather speak to a stylist we do take bookings over the phone.

What are your Payment options?

We have eftpos and Cash available

Why do you cut curls dry?

On average a curly can have up to 4 different curl patterns over their head. Hence if we combed them wet they wouldn’t be sitting at their true overall form.

How long does a #maidencurls session take?

Allow approx 2hrs, more for longer or thicker hair.

How do you protect your curls while you sleep?

We recommend wearing a Cozy or Buff while you sleep/shower, to protect your hair from friction against bedding and to protect it from warm steamy environments.

Why is my hair breaking and never growing longer?

Your hair can break if it lacks moisture or has protein deficiencies. This education is all apart of our #maidencurls beginners session.

What is hard water?

Hard water is caused by minerals in your water. Hard water can deposit minerals on your hair that blocks moisture from your hair. Education around the type of water you’re using can be a game changer for the health of your hair.

How often should I wash my hair?

I Generally wash my hair every 6-8 days. We recommend 1-2 per week is ideal and achievable after a #maidencurls education session.
